Yesterday I got to spend some time with my beautiful friend Elisha.
Isn't she gorgeous?
She is one of the best moms I know. We had a great talk about dealing with our children. She said that one of the hardest things about being a parent is figuring out what matters to each of your children, then applying it to situations you find yourself in with them. Do they need to be in control? Do they need rules? Continual affirmation? Elisha knows these things about her children. She is so wise, and always tries to be the best person she can be. She is patient and loving with her children, and a great example for me.
She is such a sweet friend. I always come away from my time with her feeling like I've learned something, and have news ways I want to improve. A few days ago, she called and told me she had something for me. Then yesterday, she gave me these:
A little while ago, I was obsessed with having a purple purse. I finally got one, and after less than a week, it broke. I used it as a church bag, complete with 2 sets of scriptures, 2 lesson manuals, my hymnal, books, snacks and drinks for the kids, diapers and wipes. The buckles just weren't meant to hold that much weight.
But Elisha works for Sole Desires, a shoe company that does home parties. They also sell purses, and she snagged this one for me. How sweet is that? I love the bow at the end. It's the perfect shade of purple and holds everything I need a purse to hold.
Her sister is a hair stylist and gets salon products cheap, so she also got me some Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. I am SO excited to try it out. It's the same stuff my stylist used on me.
Thank you so much, Elisha. You are such a sweetheart and great mother. When I grow up, I want to be you.
