Bad news first. The chickens seem to like the petroleum jelly! They are probably pecking on each other this very minute and are almost naked! I'll find out in the morning. Would they have pecked if I used A and D? How about an ace wrap?
Yesterday I took the kids to Eli's Knights of Freedom. I have been in doubt about starting a club here in Provo until I saw these boys together again. There is a sense of reward to watch boys interact and respond positively to different personalities. How can I not create a group here? I know what bothers me. It's an issue of personal insecurities. I know this is funny, but I feel insecure around slim healthy woman because I am fat. That's it. I feel less of a women as a fat female. So why don't I just stop eating and lose some weight?....Or just get over it and get out there and do good for our sons.
Gove and I got up early Tuesday and made it to the 5:45 am session at the temple. My notes are down stairs so if I remember to come back I will say what I have now forgotten.
I was reading in 1Nephi chapter 18 and received a worthwhile lesson. Nephi was trying to tell his brothers to stop their wanton behavior on the boat but they kept cutting him off. I realized that I am doing this when the kids try to tell me what someone else did to them in a fight. I just cut off what they are saying and I in turn say I don't care, what you have to say is nothing. Well, I don't want to be like this even if the situation is because the kids were pecking on each other. I called each child to my lap and privately apologized and explained my actions. I provided them with the opportunity to tell me anything on their minds. I thought they would let a lot out. No, they each hugged me and loved me. I look forward to not cutting off my children tomorrow.
