Quote Of The Week ~ November 8, 2016

Quotes, life, chapters, inspiration, emotions
I truly believe that we all carry skeletons in our closet.  Stories that we will most likely take to our graves.  Secrets that are only shared within ourselves.

I have learned a lot about this quote in the past year.  I have been working on my inner self and trying to discover the moments of my life that I have spent a lifetime suppressing.

And for me, there are some stories I just might choose never to share with the world.

My chapters.

Quote Of The Week ~ Aug 5, 2016

This has been a very emotional week.  Not only did we put our oldest son Bryan on a plane yesterday to embark on his next chapter of life, joining the Army, but my husband also lost a niece to suicide.

She felt that what people were saying about her on social media was more important than her own precious life.

She felt that taking her own life was the only answer and has only created more heartache than any parent should ever have to endure.

There has been a GO FUND ME account set up for funeral costs which is located here.

Hug your kids, tell them you love them, and start teaching them that what people say or think about them DOESN’T MATTER!  Teach them to love themselves and have confidence.

This quote speaks volumes to me about relationships, including friendships.

In most relationships there’s always one side of the relationship that tries a litter harder, loves a little more, and gives more of themselves to keep the relationship going.

Throughout my life I’ve been on both sides and as I get older I’m starting to realize that some relationships are just not worth my effort any longer.

Quote Of The Week ~ June 5, 2016


I had this quote in my archives from a few weeks ago where I had posted it to Instagram and Facebook.  

I had actually meant to use it for a “Quote Of The Week” a while back, but somewhere in my blogging hiatus, not writing much lately, and the new adventure I have embarked on that I will be writing about, it had gotten brushed aside.

I LOVE this quote.  It sums up motherhood perfectly.  Or even parenting in general.  We want to teach them and watch them grow into great adults but we get sad when we’ve actually accomplished it.  Sad that they are leaving us but happy that we kept them alive!

They’re no longer those babies that once looked at us with such admiration.  

They’re all grown up.

Quote Of The Week ~ May 8, 2016

Today is Mother’s Day here in the US and while I was laying here in my bed debating whether to go back to sleep (my teenagers gift was to get up with the littles) or to stay in here and hide out a little while longer, I started to reflect on what Mother’s Day means to me.

Now of course there’s the side of me that wants to get in the car, drive to the city, go to the spa, eat sushi, get my kid infested Yukon detailed, maybe catch a movie, and then get home after the kids have already been put to bed.

For one my husband has to work today and I don’t expect my teenager to play parent all day.

But in reality I know that I have a 6 year old little boy out there that has been talking about his Mother’s Day gift he made for me for the last week and the excitement in his eyes when he talks about is just one of the biggest joys of motherhood.

On Thursday the preschool my girls attend, had a Mother’s Day celebration and when I opened the gift that my 4 year old made (a mold of clay shaped as her hand) I began to cry because as a mom I know her hand will not always be that small.

My 5 year old planted Baby’s Breath in a little pot she painted and decorated and we have been watering and taking care of it everyday.  She’s been waiting patiently to plant it into a bigger pot.  I will of course treasure the tiny decorated pot forever.

Mother’s Day is not just about a day, it’s about being a mother all the time.  Being a mother whose loved and adored by her children.  It’s about making sacrifices to ensure their happiness.  Being there when the world or life fails them sometimes. Putting your own thoughts and frustrations aside  even when they become adults.

To always be the mother they can turn to.

It’s about being the best mom you can be and being rewarded with their love and admiration.  It’s precious…never take it for granted.

Mothers Day 2016 motherhood
From one mother to another, hug your kids, kiss your kids, and always love your kids and show that love because they grow so fast and I for one never want to look back on my motherhood and have too many regrets.

Happy Mother’s Day,

Quote Of The Week ~ May 1, 2016

quotes inspiration rob thomas lyrics
This morning I was watching my husband and kids walk down to the river before we got ready to leave.  It was a beautiful morning.  Sun was shining, no wind, and a clean crispness in the air.

The happiness and sounds of their laughs made me realize that no matter what regrets I have made in my life, that in that exact moment, that one little fragment of time I was reminded of everything I have to be thankful for.

Them.  My life now.  

Sometimes in the smallest of hours is when we need to reflect on not what we’ve done wrong but all the things that have gone right and brought us full circle to this very moment.

Quote Of The Week ~ April 17, 2016

  
I guess there’s quite a fine line between someone’s opinion of you and their critiquing of who you are.

It’s kind of like the old saying of “There’s no such thing as bad press”.  

I’ve always considered myself pretty good at taking constructive critisicm.  I believe one cannot grow without knowing if others think they are good at something or need improvement.  As humans there are always ways to improve ourselves.

It’s called living.

And I would rather be noticed for saying, doing, and being me than to be a nobody.
