Seeking Danger

I've just read a blog post by a sister missionary that used to serve in Guelph. She suffered a miscarriage earlier in the year and it resulted in her developing a gestational tumor in her uterus. She has already been blessed with one child but this tumor may be the end to her childbearing. Her story is not the first I've heard concerning how dangerous pregnancy can be. Pregnancy and giving birth has taken the lives of many mothers, caused permanent illnesses and disabilities.
It feels strange to pray daily for Heavenly Father to place me in the possibly dangerous situation, but at the same time I know the risks involved would be worth it.

I still believe that we will have children one day and I strongly believe that our family will be a mixture of children born by us and those born by other mothers. Even before we knew we would have fertility problems we had decided we would adopt. We really would like to adopt from Africa, especially Congo. I have many little cousins and second cousins that are orphaned, malnourished and have no chance being educated.We have found some organizations that assist people in doing relative adoptions. Adoption can also be dangerous, there is a financial risk as well as a huge emotional war.

Mothers sacrifice so much, heart, body and soul. What would we do if our mothers didn't risk their lives to bring us into this world? Or find the strength and love in their hearts to mother an unwanted or orphaned child? Whether you already mother or are preparing to mother the following quote probably fits your life

I know God won't give me anything I can't handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much --- Mother Teresa

Right now I mother this thing:

She desperately needs it and has been begging for my attention for the last half hour. We are off to watch pet heroes together.
Good Day to All!

Just in case you haven't heard of the LDS vineyard:

This website offers ways in which you can do service at home or even at work. Cody and I did this for family home evening this week and we really enjoyed it. Hope you like it too.

Bargain Shopping

I am a huge bargain shopper and have found a new love

Beyond the Rack

I absolutely love this site,
I've ordered some awesome cheap things from here. The other thing a love is that on the right day there is the most amazing selection of modest clothing from skirts to swimwear. The site post deals that last for a few days and then new deals come along. Some of them are ridiculous like purses that used to be $1100 are now on sale for $499, but apart from that there are a lot of really good things, so far I have spent just under $100 (shipping included) and that includes Ralph Lauren duvet cover, some beautiful dessert plates, toys and baby clothing.

If you are at all interested in this site, let me know as you have to be invited. You might find the greatest deal ever!

The dessert plates I got
I love them!
