Day 3 - Favorite Quote

"No other success can compensate for failure in the home." - David O. McKay

Adam and I are not rich. We don't have the nicest and newest everything. This is a choice we made, for me to be a stay at home mom. While my photography business is very successful, I limit the number of clients I take on for a reason. I don't work on Sundays to get ahead. It's important for me to spend time with my kids and make sure I'm doing everything I can at home before all else. It's also important for me to constantly work at my relationship with Adam. Without us working together and being a team that loves and supports each other, all else wouldn't be able to follow. All of that is so much more important to me than anything else I might accomplish.

Day 4 - What are you afraid of?

Death. I've lived a very blessed life, in that no one close to me has ever passed away. I don't know how to experience that loss and grieve, and I feel like everyday I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. I constantly worry about something horrible happening to one of my children. For Adam to die in a car crash on his way home. For one of my parents to have a massive heart attack and die alone. That I have cancer and don't know it. I just don't know how I could recover from the loss of one of my kids, especially if it were in a tragic, horrendous situation. I try not to let it consume me, but it's something I think about daily.

  1. Love these both. I am terrified of death! Your very same worries are mine. Glad I'm not alone.
