Monday’s Motivation

I thought I’d share this lovely letter with you this Monday.  I can very quickly get on a soap box about the teaching profession.   How they’re not paid enough, appreciated enough, treated well enough……  A good teacher is a treasure and will impact his/her students for life.

My daughter who is a grade school counselor posted this letter on facebook this week and I just thought it was AMAZING!!  Every child should hear this message until they understand and believe it for themselves.  In our own way we can share this message with the little ones in our lives.

The core of the message can apply to everyone.  No one is excellent at everything.  NO ONE!!  We often look at what someone else has accomplished or how we compare to them …… don’t do it!!  You are good at what you’re good at and likewise, they are good at what they are good at.  Embrace what you love and what you’re good at and be happy for others because of what they excel at.

Have a GREAT week lovin what you do and being the best you can be!



Thanks for visiting!

Monday’s Motivation

never let anyone dim your light 6-30-14

Shine as bright as you can, ALWAYS!

There will be people in your life that may be jealous or envious.  Try to sabotage your efforts or just be negative around you and those you live and work with.  Don’t let anyone drag you down and dim your light.  Strive for your very best and shine the brightest you can!

****************

This week is our annual family week at the cabin.  My kids and grandkids come for as much of the week as they can to play and celebrate Independence Day.  It’s always a great week!

The fun’s already begun!

Surrey rides, squirt gun fights, shopping trips and yummy food.  Jason and Heather will be joining us later in the week.  There’ll be swimming and games, stories and picnics.  On the fourth there’ll be a parade, BBQ and fireworks.

With such busy lives I’m so thankful for the times we can play together.

I hope you have a great week with a little time to play and celebrate our great country and the freedom we have.



Thanks for visiting!

A Bridal Shower

 

This week has been a crazy busy week!  The most special event of the week was a bridal shower for my future daughter in law.  It was a small family shower to welcome her to the family.  We had the shower at my new home that I haven’t moved into yet.  Basically walked through with my contractor Thursday afternoon, moved some furniture in Friday and set up for the shower we had on Sunday.  Thankfully my daughter Bethany came into town early to help.  Thanks Bethany!!  Couldn’t have done it without you!
