Life is Rich

Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time

carrying our hopes for love,


and celebration.

The hummingbird's delicate grace reminds me that life is rich

beauty is everywhere,

every personal connection has meaning

and that laughter is life's sweetest creation.

Best Part of My Past...and More!

Fourteen years ago today, I promised my man in front of God, immediate families and close friends, that I would stand by him faithfully until death separated us.

Much has happened in the past fourteen years. We added three beautiful children. We experienced loss. We survived hardships. We uprooted the family. We found adventures around us. Life does throw us some curve balls and wild pitches. It feel like we have struck out more times than most. The list goes on and on.

And we've done it all together. I wouldn't have it any other way. Lets hope that this next year gives us more to celebrate. All we can do is just stay in the game Keep on swinging.

Happy anniversary, hon. I love and appreciate you more today than I ever have.

Charging Ahead

Action may not always bring happiness;
but there is no happiness without action.
~~Benjamin Disraeli

I love a start of a new year. When the calendar rolls over to another year, it reminds me of the joy and privilege of starting fresh, almost like a do-over, to renew commitments at anytime of my life. Of course, a new year makes me more aware of this great truth. I never make a lot of resolutions but do spend time reflecting and trying to learn from the previous twelve months.

As we go into the new year, there are many uncertainties. But one thing is certain. My hope and sense is that 2009 is going to be a great year, despite economic downfall! Hubby is back from California to stay. Many good things are happening around here and I truly believe it is going to be a breakthrough year while all the specifics are worked out. I've continued to grow and learn so much since the big move over three years ago. I am looking forward to charging ahead into the next 11.5months. Schedules seem to get overcrowded so quickly. The days of the calendar seem to flip by at ever increasing speed. But, I am starting this new year with a commitment--not necessarily a resolution--to keep a proper and healthy balance in my schedule between parental responsibilities, family time, study needs, and children activities. I hope you are as excited and hopeful for this new calendar year as I am. Blessings to you and your family for 2009.

True learning-learning that is permanent and useful,that leads to intelligent action and further learning, can arise only out of the experience, interest, and concerns of the learner.

Real heroes are men who fall, fail and are flawed, but win out in the end because they stayed true to their ideals, beliefs and commitments.
