My heart was so full this day and
I cannot express how thankful
I am that she has made this decision.
My family also was able to come(except my brother)
It felt so good to see them.
I miss the all so much!
I am so thankful for my parents
and the relationship they have with
T. I am thankful for the examples
they were on my life.
I love you Tilisa.
Thank You for being
a great example to me
and your little sisters.
2 months ago and has already moved
up four classes. She loves it, and she
is so good. I don't even have to
remind her to practice. She just puts her
ipod on and practices for hours.
I am so proud of her and look
forward to seeing her talent grow.
Shanny just turned 6 and so much has
happen in the past few weeks.
She started her first day of Kindergarten and
she was so excited to go.
Everyday she has brought home a smiley face
to show what a great
job she did for the day.
She has loved being in school
and making new friends.
Her first day she said was boring because all
they did was talk about colors...lol!

You don't have to buy from anyone.
You don't have to work at any particular job.
You don't have to participate in any given relationship.
You can choose.
You steer the course you choose in the direction
of where you want to be today, tomorrow,
or in a distant time to come.
You hold the tiller.
You can decide to alter the course of your life at any time.
No one can ever take that away from you.
You can decide what you want and go after it.
It's always your next move.
Lately I have been reflecting on thing's in my life
that I can do differently or better. There are many
things that I cannot wait to change. I think I have
seen the "light" and realized that I was neglecting
certain things. This last week for FHE we talked
about goals. For myself I set three goals; a mental,
spiritual, and a physical goal. I am not going to tell
you what they are yet, I will just tell you I am excited!
I think they are things that will help me be a better
person, wife, mom and friend.
So until next time...CHOOSE to make today a great one!!!

"As you create a home, don't get distracted with a lot of things that have no meaning for you or your family. Don't dwell on your failures, but think about your successes. Have joy in your home. Have joy in your children. Have joy in your husband. Be grateful for the journey."
