I love these different emotion faces. For some reason whenever I see small colored circles with facial expressions on them creates a sense of happiness within me. I can't help but want to share them. For this alone I've realized that emotions are good enough to mention as a daily gift. Because whether or not we think as emotions as gifts, we are sharing them every day with all of the people around us. Have you ever thought that our personal emotions could be a blessing gifted from God? Well, they are, so I say enjoy each and every different emotion that you have. Life wouldn't be the same if we didn't have change and different ways to express our reactions. Once I was given a humorous parenting tip that everyone could benefit by using: when you see a little toddler stumble and fall down, smile at them, clap your hands and say yeah. Surprisingly, almost every time you do this the child's sad or questionable face changes to a smile. It's not necessary easy, but we can choose how we act and react and remember to go for the motto; onward and upward, without stepping on anyone.

Writing about myself here reminds me of all my English assignments at the beginning of the school year were I had to write an essay about myself or one of those get-to-know you socials where everyone has to say several new & interesting things about themselves. I never did get smart and save my answers to use them again. For some reason I always feel hesitant and at times unclear about what I should say about myself that would be interesting. So this is me at a glimpse: I grew up in Rockville, Maryland - went to Wheaton High School - went to Ricks College - met my husband while at school - am a mother of six children - live in Rexburg, Idaho - received my associates' degree from BYU-I in 2011 - actively a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - actively volunteer in the Boy Scouts of America program in Cub Scouts - and like to organize and create things.
