It's the little things in life!

That make the Big things worth it. Sometimes you just gotta look in the dark for the light, and today I have found it.

For those who do not Face book, Keilani had her face smashed inside a heavy metal door last week, and has multiple injury's to her face including a broken jaw.

We are struggling to come to terms with the whole thing, well at least I am. My husband is the most laid back dude you will ever meet, and so it is really just me who is so irate..Until yesterday his opinion changed.

We are struggling to get the truth from people and you all know how it makes one feel when the truth is not told. blah

But in the midst of my trial, in the midst of the darkness, I continue to see light.. For instance I am so thankful for my Keilani and her strength and knowledge, she makes me a better person because of it.

2ND- Today Elaiasi and Kono have non stop humor to help me find mine again.

We were outside playing and I went to get on the tramp, when Elaiasi yells "Mom, umm I wouldn't do that if I were you, you might break our trampoline"... I laughed and said your right son.

Elaiasi- Well on the other hand get on and get some exercise, move your arms up and down, (I did) He screams.. NO mom, when you do jumping jacks you will get skinny, then daddy won't love you anymore.

It is in times of trial, strive to find the little things in life that will take your mind out of the pit of trial. It is not easy, in fact I still am struggling, but it will come, and then the sun will shine once again.

Like it does always, and then it will be time for another trial. We take it in strides, that is all we can do. Have faith that the Lord knows what he is doing.. Oh boy does he!

I will win this, we will win this, and move onto the next.

My SIL is the school psychologist for the Canyons school district. She said she would be MORE than happy to talk with you and help you get a plan of action in place so that this never happens to another child again.
