Glad that I woke up to see yet another day! God is soo good, I was up and have been in a fantastic mood and did not know why I was EXTREMELY gitty this morning!
 
I was on a roll with my happy self then my alarm went off on my phone!!
 
It was a reminder that TODAY February 18, 2013 marked the 5 year anniv. of my wonderful father’s passing.
 
For the first 20 seconds I MUST ADMIT that it stopped my happy moment momentum………… However, I did pull it together!!!
 
I am well and although it is his 5 year anniv. I AM STILL HAPPY as I was this morning……
 
Just like the enenmy to try and quench your happiness out of the blue – but it did NOT work!!!……. Im free from the bondage of being depressed of my father’s passing…and it feels soooooo soooo great!!!
 
 
Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20

Wishful Thinking –


I have ALWAYS desired to go to the UK… and until I get there – here’s to London Dreams! This is one of the countries that I have considered relocating too in the past – but as you know the story…..my son was helping me clean out of closets… a little Spring cleaning – and he ACCIDENTIALLY threw out our passports that was enclosed inside of the manilla envelopes! Well, I will relocate…. ” soon enough ” So I am “sorta – kinda” patiently waiting…. LOL

Parenting

Traveling –


Welp, we are in the car AGAIN and headed to happiness! This boy loves to travel – I dont care where the destination is..he just wants to get in the car and GO!!  This boy even packs MORE than I do and all I do is giggle and ask myself what in the world did Icreate? He is super neat and a tad bit OVERLY anal when it comes to how his things are folded in his suitcase – like really Jared? Hey things could be worse – he could be a sloppy kid! LOL

Kids learn to be flexible while traveling AND FLEXIBILITY is something this kid has..

There are plenty of reasons why travel is good for kids. Whether you are traveling for a two-week vacation or heading out for a multi-year vagabonding lifestyle, travel is good.

Travel helps kids learn the world is a wonderful place. In today’s society where most people fear others, travel helps children learn that the vast majority of people in our world are kind and generous people who will go the extra mile to help a fellow human.

Travel helps kids develop communication skills. As they travel amongst various cultures, they’ll communicate with people of all ages and in many languages. Children will pick up foreign languages and perfect the fine art of sign language when they can’t get their message across with words. Now, since he talks with his hands like his mother – this should be easy! LOL

Travel broadens kids’ education. There’s nothing like being a place to learn about that place. The history and culture come alive when you see it being lived. Textbooks are great resources, but don’t come close to replicating the experience of actually being there and being able to see, hear, smell, taste, and touch it…. ( an my son touches EVERYTHING!! even at 10 )

He recently told me that he wanted to visit Asia – I said man….for all of this lets just move there! We BOTH are like cavaliers and will pick up and just “go with the flow” anywhere and anytime!

Travel helps kids become more flexible and to adapt to changes easier. We all know the old adage that even the best laid plans will go awry. While traveling, plans change daily – minute by minute at times – and kids need to adapt. Through those experiences they learn that things will be OK, even if they aren’t what was expected.

Inspiration

A Healhty Mind Set


If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win but you think you can’t, it’s almost a cinch you wont.
For out in the world you’ll find success begins with a persons will.
It’s all in the state of Mind.

Think big, and your deeds will grow;
Think small and you fall behind.
Think that you can, and you will.
It’s all in your state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you can ever win a prize.
Life’s battle doesn’t always go to the stronger or faster one;
But sooner or later, the one who wins is the person who thinks they can.

Relationships

Ummmm- True!


Yes this is really true and it applies to ANY type of relationship…….When people put how they feel on display – Welp!, ummm….. how about – please believe them!
