Our Families Favorite Quote

As a being of power, intelligence, and the master of his own thoughts, a man holds the key to every situation, to make his life what he chooses it to be. When he discovers the divine power within his soul, he can lead his life to a God-like nature. If one dreams lofly dreams, so shall he become. There is magic in the way one thinks. If we expect the worst, we will get the worst. If we expect the best, we will recieve the best. If we train our minds to have faith in God and ourselves, we are using one of the great laws of life. If we think and live righteously, happiness will find its place in our lives. It is amazing when we expect the best how forces are set in motion which cause the best to materialize. Our thoughts, more than circumstances determine the coarse of our lives. Outward circumstances do not determine the coarse of our lives as much as the thoughts that habitually occupy our minds. These thoughts carve their impression on our faces, in our hearts, and on the tablet of our eternal souls.

Tyler is 2!


So my one and only boy turned 2 yesterday! Time sure has flown by, it feels like it should be his first birthday. He is getting so big and looks like a toddler now. I will have to post pics later, my camera broke and so I had my mother in law take them and so I will post them when I get them, I do have a pic of his cake which turned out cute. He is really into cars lately, you usually will see him with a car in each hand and as many as he can fit into every pocket that he has! Today Justin caught him playing outside with some cars just walking around and then he kissed the car that was in his hand, so ya he really loves cars. He would watch the cars movie 2-3times a day if I would let him. He loves to be outside with chewy, and did I say he loves cars! He is talking alot and is such a joy to our family, I love having him, my baby:)

Grateful

I am feeling so grateful for my life right now. I feel so blessed to have the jobs that we have, Justin has wonderful jobs right now, we couldn't ask for anything better right now. We are so blessed to have the benefits that come with our jobs. I am still working at the kidsklub, which doesn't feel like work at all! I love the girls I work with and the benefit of the gym...... I love working at Logan nursing and rehab. I meet the neatest people that I get to take care of....I am only there 1 or 2 days a week so I don't ever get burned out, I feel blessed to work there. I am taking care of a Patient who can't speak because of results from a stroke, but we have a special connection together....words literally can't express the experiences I have had with her, she is so special to me and I realize the important things in life just being around her. I have had a lot of other workers tell me that this patient really likes me....they say that they can just tell by her expressions on her face, it has made me feel so good:)
My children are such a joy in my life, I love being a mother, each child brings a different joy to me! I really wish that they just would not grow up! Tonight Justin and I sat and listened to Tyler talk and talk and talk ....to us! He was just so excited and happy about life! He kept showing us a picture of a kitty and saying or I should say more like yelling he was sooo excited..." Mom!, Dad! look kitty, cute, look, cute! " Then he would giggle:)He is starting to talk so much and just grow up awwwwww my baby!
I am so grateful to have Justin home more, he was sooooo busy the months of Jan and Feb, taking his EMT-intermediate class. I just love that Man!!!!!

Soon I hope to have pics, my camera broke and it is driving me crazy not having one:(

Nothing is better than my house.
I feel the warm sun in my house.
I hear lots of screams of joy and laughs.
I smell the blue sweet sky and the sweet smells that my mom's cooking.
I taste the cold air and good smells.
I touch the plastic ball, wet grass cold air.
I love my house.
