Tears have come knowing we have food storage, savings, and a garden. More blessings and peace brought to me and my family by following the prophet.
Tears for the wonderful husband I have that is so smart, loving, faithful and eternally mine. He is a hard worker and any company would be lucky to have him as an employee. Tears for the hurt I have glimpsed in his eyes, as he faces what most of us would feel if we were laid off and no longer able to provide as we had for our family. Tears for the sweet way Joey was so proud of himself for being "in charge" of the house while Peter went to LDS Employment Services and I slept between shifts this last weekend. He had turned on Arabella's music in her crib and made his own chocolate milk and ensured Jon stayed asleep during his nap. Tears for Jon's amazing understanding of Jesus and how he made all of the animals, bugs and that he was hurt by the soldiers with a spear and nails. Tears for the time I will lose seeing Arabella grow and discover the world around her by working more hours.
