If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing,
IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration,
something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG.
Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great,
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
I am thankful for my cute husband(his head is cut off in this picture that we had to take of ourselves) and for the wonderful dad he is to our three little girls. He is such a awesome dad. He loves taking our girls to the park and to the rec. center to go swimming. He always tells our girls he loves them and always makes time to be with them. He is such a hard worker and provides a good life for all of us girls! I love him!
I am so thankful for Tilisa and for the love and compassion she has for others. The first time I held her in my arms I knew that she was what I always needed. She makes me laugh, she makes me cry. I love how much she enjoys school and I love watching her learn new things.
My Little Shanny. Oh how I love my Shanny. She always has the most interesting questions.
Shanny is my lazy girl. If I ask her to do something, all of a sudden her leg is broke or her stomach hurts, or sometimes she even has diaherrea! LOL! I am so thankful for her and the love that she gives me each day!
Today while I was on the phone she told me to be quiet because she was meditating! She always has something funny to say!
Ana Finau...I wish I knew what it felt like to get a whole nights rest before feeling a little three year old body climb in between the two of us. Last night I was woken up from feeling someone by my legs. There was my little Ana putting a blanket on me to keep me cold she said, and then of coarse she crawled right in the middle! If she ever does anything to get in trouble I will say Ana and she will immediately say Shanny did it! What a character!
As I have said time after time. I am so thankful for my family. I am thankful to be able to see them laugh, cry and play. I love watching them grow and learn and the compassion that they usually have for one another! Don't get me wrong there are times when we have full on battles at our house with three little girls yelling, screaming and fighting!
I am thankful for my husband that made this all possible! I am thankful that I have him to turn to when I am having a bad day or just when I need someone to talk to. He can always make me smile and laugh and he tells me every day that he loves me! What more could I ask for?
I found this poem and would like to share...
Before I was a Mom
Pooped on. Chewed on. Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her children.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom I had never gotten up in the middle
of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a mom.
I am so thankful for all of my blessings and trials in life. I am thankful for the things that I have been through that I feel have made me a better person. I try to live each day the best that I can, that I will look back and have no regrets! Until next time make each day a good one!
