Manti is 1 week old!
Oh, my! It has been quite a week! This was Friday,marking his first week. The first day home was pretty tough and I often felt like "What did I get myself into?" But after that every day got better and better and I am so thankful for him. I realized how easy it is to forget certain stages in our lives which can be good and bad. Eve is quite the Mommy and Jackson is such a good big brother( for being 3 years old anyway). Jackson keeps telling me how much he loves his family, it is the most special thing. I am so grateful for my family, my beautiful children and for my husband who I know loves me. Geoff and I just celebrated our 7th anniversary and it makes me smile when I look back to when we first started dating. Geoff took me to the prom, how many people can say that? I honestly felt love and genuine goodness in him from the moment he put his arms around me that Spring day at the Temple after singles ward. I actually have a picture that my friend Dez shot of us at that very moment, it brings back a lot of memories. I felt something I had never felt before and that is what kept me going no matter what stuggles we went through. I love, love my husband, he is my best friend, my soul mate. He has never judged me even when I judge myself. I feel entirely blessed. My Dad told me something one time that really made a profound impact on me when I was a teenager. He said " I might have never been the wealthiest person or had enough money, but when I think of my family I feel like the richest person in the world".
