Being Humble…

This is what I want my kids to know:

Right now they’re young enough that they think being humble is not taunting the other team after you beat them. We’ve got a ways to go before we get to this point – but think of how rich their lives would be if they could understand this one concept.

This is it…

This is it Jeffrey R. Holland quote

Sometimes I get caught up in life and think if I can just get through tomorrow, every thing will be okay. That day comes and goes and then I convince myself it’s just a busy/rough week and if I can just get through the week…then it will slow down and everything will fall into place.

I’m hoping I’m not the only one that does this! I keep thinking my ideal day is just around the corner and if I can only push through to that day….


The good and the bad. This is real life. What am I doing to enjoy my moments now?


While celebrating Mother’s day on Sunday, this quote kept circling in my head. We’re doing better than we think we are!

Doing better than you think

Value of a moment…

Its Dr. Seuss week at school (thanks to his birthday this weekend) which means it’s one big reading party at school and at home and I love it.

I am notorious for trying to capture moments – big and small – simply because I don’t want to forget. I don’t want to forget what it looks like to have puzzles scrawled across my floor or Cannon’s amazing bed head. I know in no time it will be just a memory.
