Loving Arizona and Missing Hawaii

Wednesday, March 30, 2011


"Life is not a race--but indeed a journey. Be honest. work hard. Be choosy. Say "thank you," "I love you," and "great job" to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than a pen and paper. Love your life and what you've been given; it is not accidental--search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself--plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment." -Bonnie Mohr

making life sweeter

I just love the things my children say. They keep life lighter and sweeter.

Awhile back:

Ethan, "I ate it all gone. Now you can't have a bite. But it's okay if you're sad."

Me, (trying to understand) "Oh, I was going to have a bite but you ate it all, so now I can feel sad if I want to?"

Ethan, "Oh! I'm sorry. I didn't mean to ate it!"
