Got this in an email today, and it really hit home with me...

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Don't have much to say about it besides be careful when those mean, judging thoughts roll through your head, don't let them become your destiny!

Best Job Ever!

I don't think I ever interviewed for this job, some days I don't think I'm qualified enough and some days I just would like to quit. My job has gotten me very dirty some days and has me doing things I never ever imagined I would do. My job requires me to be extremely creative and able to think quickly on the spot. My job also requires to me slow down when needed and listen to what's being said...some days I need a translator and other days I act as the translator. I have to be available 24 hours a day and I'm not allowed to call in sick. I must be able to cook, sing, and clean....often all at the same time. Multi-tasking is very important to my job. Some days I have to have a really good sense of humor and other days I have to keep my laughter hidden underneath my hand. I always have to watch what I say and manners are of the utmost importance. I have to have a big heart and doctor's hands for all the physical and emotional injuries I deal with on a daily basis!

With all this job requires, you'd wonder why anyone would want a 24 hour a day non-stop job...well because it comes with the best rewards ever. I can get the biggest smile ever by just playing some Sugarland in the car. I get millions of snotty, wet kisses. I get hugs that come with a grunt. I am a hero just by picking someone up. I get to cheer on silly little things that happen every day. I get to dance and sing to an audience who thinks I'm a rock star! I get to be reminded every day how much God loves me. I am allowed to be a little late, and everyone understands. I always get to buy new clothes because someone is always growing! My house can be a mess and people understand! I have the best job title in the world...Mommy! Happy Mother's Day to all you awesome Mommys who have great jobs too!

No excuses!

Apparently we have to have a blizzard for me to keep up with a blog! I have no good reason to not post. I say no good reason because my reason for not posting is because I have been consumed by my silly farm on facebook....seriously addicting kinda like there needs to be a rehab for people who spend too much time on farmville.

Funny for the car on the ride home from school....
Noah - "I tired, shoo, shoo(him snoring)"
Mommy - "Me too"
Noah - "I see cows, Moo, I smart"
Mommy - "I see them too"
Noah - "Mommy smart too"

Glad he could reassure me of that because I've been feeling a little brain dead lately!!! Ok, gotta go make dinner...and possible check on my farm...shhh :)
