One down

Well I turned in my take home test and it was a disaster!! My prof said it should only take about 2 hours. Well it took me more than 4! I still could not figure out 2 of questions and there were only 15 total. I should be ok because all of my other scores have been high. Just extra stress to keep us on our toes.

I have been doing alot of deep soul searching. I am always trying to grow in possitive directions. I think alot on my parenting skills and how can I improve. Do I do enough service to my friends and neighbors? Am I being a good friend to those I have? Am I doing my church calling as well as I should? Do I try hard enough to follow the commandments of God? Do I pray enough? How can I squeeze in one more day of exercise? Do I talk to much or not enough? Is it possible for me to be the homeroom mom, fulltime mom and full time student at the same time? Maybe it is all just.....too much. Maybe I do to much or not enough?!

I don't know may be I am going through a mid life crisis.

I know that we all have a reason and a season for the good and positive things in life. I just pray that I am not to busy to miss them!!

I got a really good quote today and want to share it!

President Joseph F. Smith said:

"You can't force your boys, nor your girls, into Heaven. You may force them to hell by using harsh means in the efforts to make them good when you, yourselves, are not as good as you should be. The man that will be angry at his boy, and try to correct him while he is in anger, is in the greatest fault; he is more to be pitied and more to be condemned than the child who has done wrong. You can only correct your children by love, in kindness, by love unfeigned, by persuasion, and reason." (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph F. Smith, p. 253-254).

This might not make you feel beter or it might but I think you are a great mom. I have learned alot from you. I think your children are great and that has do be a direct result of you well and a little from Scott to. I don't know if this helps or not but all I know is that you can only do what you can do. It is alot easier to say then do. Keep up the good work.

I know those tests are rotten! You would think making it only 15 questions would make it easier, but really it seems like the "short" tests are the longest and toughest.
Inga you really are an inspiration, don't ever think you are doing too little. Thinking of how you can improve yourself is what keeps you falling away but don't worry yourself! And you are not old enough to be having a midlife crisis! :) If you ever want any help with all the things you do just give me a call.
