Good News

It's been a good news sort of a week.
This guy's PET scan shows no cancer and Dr.'s have taken him off the blood thinner

This cute girl (my neice Holli) got engaged

This handsome fella (my nephew Jake) is being baptized

Plus it's Halloween which is my very favorite Holiday (after Christmas and the 4th of July, of course).

What to do?

Hello my name is Leah and I am a worrier. Maybe I'm the only one out there who feels this way but seriously I worry about everything. I worry when my kids are at home that they are missing out at school. I worry when they are in school that they are learning things they shouldn't. I worry that I'm not nice enough. I worry that I don't discipline enough. I worry that my kids don't have enough friends or that they are too social. I worry that I'm not doing enough in my calling or that I'm spending too much time on it and not enough with my kids. I worry that my kids don't know how much I love them and I worry that I smother them. I worry that my brothers and sisters don't know how much I love them let alone how much I enjoy each of them and their fabulous choices in spouses. I worry that I am a bad friend and don't spend enough time on my friendships. I worry that my kids don't get to spend enough time with their grandparents. I worry that they won't know their cousins as well as I wish they did. I worry that my husbands family doesn't know how much I love them and wish that we were closer. I could go on and on. But, right now my biggest worry is this little man. This sweet wonderful beautiful amazing funny little boy.

What can I do for him? He's struggling in school. He's so smart but so easily distratracted. His teacher rides him that gets him down. We have to ride him at home and that makes him sad. He makes friends but often tells me that kids are mean to him. How is he not the most beloved child at the school. I want him to be blissfully happy. I want to make everyone see in him what I see. Any ideas? I'm worried about him.
