On another note, I'm getting together with my sisters and my mom in February for a little get away. It's just at my parents' house, but it'll be fun just to have some girl time and for all our kids to spend time together. I think this is something we're going to try to do every year, which will be nice. :)
so after a week that I don't really want to repeat, I have tools to use to make next week better. I'm so thankful for good friends who were prompted to lend an ear, shoulder, and even a few tips this last week. Heavenly Father must love me enough to know what I need especially when I don't ask for it.
