ROLLER COASTER!


Hey, it's how we roll! (yup, that's the boy in the heels and hula skirt...)


It's true, I've been on somewhat of a roller coaster ride of emotions lately. The job horizon has me a little down, and the looming election has me scared and looking for answers. I know there are people out there who are weathering worse storms that I could even imagine, and that makes me feel guilty and unjustified in my worry, ergo, another emotion. Then, this weekend, my daughter wanted to watch old home movies. As I sat and watched my babies grow up before my eyes on the t.v., I realized that I have already enjoyed SO MUCH LIFE!!!! Every single day that has been spent in the presence of friends and family has been (especially in hindsight) such a blessing and such a gift. Never have these words rung more true to me than today...
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.” Robert Brault

I'm such a quote-collector, and I'm am going to allow some of my favorites to inspire me to go forth and be positive! I am going to strengthen my resolve to worry less (doesn't help anyway), enjoy life more (who can argue with that logic?!), and have faith in God that all will be taken care of--I am in good hands!
WHAT IS LIFE?
Life is an Adventure ... Dare it
Life is a Beauty ... Praise it
Life is a Challenge ... Meet it
Life is a Duty ... Perform it
Life is a Love ... Enjoy it
Life is a Tragedy ... Face it
Life is a Struggle ... Fight it
Life is a Promise ... Fulfill it
Life is a Game ... Play it
Life is a Gift ... Accept it
Life is a Journey ... Complete it
Life is a Mystery ... Unfold it
Life is a Goal ... Achieve it
Life is an Opportunity ... Take it
Life is a Puzzle ... Solve it
Life is a Song ... Sing it
Life is a Sorrow ... Overcome it
Life is a Spirit ... Realize it

Life can also be very sticky and messy, and sometimes a bit sarcastic and sassy, and that's okay too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today from SITS! YOu aren't missing anything about MN. It's cold and windy and even snowed a little today. Ugh.

Amen! Sarah turned 19 today, and we spent some time picking out baby pictures for an upcoming blog in honor of her birthday. It was definitely a wistfully funny stroll down memory lane. It goes too fast, we just HAVE to enjoy each moment.

How true. My hubby and I were lamenting about money (or our lack thereof to be more accurate) and then we played Monopoly with our son, and as he shook the dice, and made these amazing, INTENSE little faces when he rolled; when he gleefully built houses on Park Place and charged us rent...THOSE are the big things. That is so, so true. Puts things like paying the cable bill late into perspective. Thanks for helping me appreciate the life I've been blessed with!!
