Today is my birthday.......and it's a big one. It's times like these you step back and take stock of your life and wonder if you've done the right things, made a difference, will be remembered for the good things you've done.
I'm pretty sure I will be remembered as the crazy woman who had ten kids. And barring the Apocalypse, my DNA should be around for a long, long time so I've made a mark there. I have tried very hard to always be kind and if I have a chance to do or say something kind, I have taken that opportunity.
I genuinely love and care about the people in my life from my family, friends, ward members, who are my friends too, to people I've never met.
I am far from perfect, as my kids will tell you, but I have tried to do the right things in life, even when it was hard.
All in all, I think I've done a good job of it. Hopefully, I will have a long time left to perfect myself.
