“Three things that make me smile: An exercise in gratitude – feel free to snag this idea and fill your blog with happy. I originally saw this on nerdinthebrain.

So i missed Thursday, but i still wanted to share.

I Spent an amazing week in internship, learnt alot by observing and hearing. On the final day of class I spent a few minutes hanging out by this calming fish pond at the hotel hosting the seminar. So peaceful.

Look what we found in our back yard while raking up ?, …actually the boys found it. Well it is the season of LOVE. #batseyes and swoons

Ready, Set….Game time

Resolutions, goals, big dreams……….splat ! thats the sound of my bubble bursing. The first month in the new year was coming to a fast close and I wasn’t feeling as close to my goals as I had when it just started. That old bastard fear and doubt started to make his way to the controls in my subconcious.

I had to remind myself that I worked best when i wasn’t trying to impress anyone and when i didn’t care what other people thought, i did my best when i just did what i was suppose to do, what I felt was right and what i felt/knew the Lord was leading me to do.

The truth is we don’t always have smooth sailing our lives, this i know yet I didn’t feel any better.. if our lives were graphs it would move up and down like the stock charts, but just as the Bear market always returns to Bull so will sense, normalcy and smooth sailing enter our world. Just as night follows day so too will the unpleasant season be followed by many days of great JOY !. Yes, I am soo looking forward to my season of spring…sheesh.

I am really not good at the ‘patience is a virtue bit’ and i believe thats one of the things I am to learn from this whole ‘test’ which i am failing at ….quite miserably too I might add. Still I commend myself because ‘knowing’ what your weakness is ….IS the first step. So as I forge valiantly into February determined to persevere, be encouraged, stay motivated, remain faithful AND learn (this is quite important) I do so comfortable and confident in the fact that I am no longer standing on the sidelines watching, wishing, wondering as others played their game but pleased as punch that I got up off the bench and started to play MY game,…and as my grandmother use to tell me “you will never know if you will win, lose or draw if you don’t play”.

So 2016 Ready, Set………..Game On !.

The boy down the lane

Getting my littlest to go to bed at nights continues to be a struggle,

considering this is my second time around I should be getting better at this right? I wish!

So tonight I was playing some bedtime rhymes with the hopes that he would fall asleep, then Baa baa, black sheep started to play; and I had a flashback of my mom singing that same song to me as a child and I remembered always wondering,

Who was the little boy that lived down the lane, and who did he live with ??…..hmmm.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

One for my master,
One for my dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.
