Kindness has been on my heart this week and last! It was cool last week on our way to school we were listening to a christian radio station and this guy told a story : he said I was drinking my coffee one day and I got bumped and spilled coffee on my shirt, (and I don’t quite recall the next part but it pretty much is this) why coffee, why not tea? If I had tea in my cup I will spill tea, if I have coffee it is coffee. What ever you put into your cup will come out, just like whatever you put into you when you get bumped or rattled that is going to come out…is it love, kindness, good or is it anger, resentment, bad?? We all have a choice what we put into our cup! Fill that cup up with kindness, peace, harmony until it spills all over you!!!! Have a fantastic week!

As I look around me for kindness this week, I am amazed that I rarely saw kindness before! That I was so unfocused, so in my own little world, not to notice kindness with out trying to see it! I am so grateful for this exercise this week! One thing I noticed today was my sweet little 5 year old boy! We decided to go visit his great 95 yr old grandma, and we didn’t want to show up empty handed so I let him pick out some donuts and orange juice at the store! When we got to the store my son opened the door for me, his little brother, and a guy walking in behind us! The guy smiled and said thank you, and I also said “Thank you Jaron you are so nice to hold the door for other people”. It just made his day to know that he was so BIG and Helpful!
Last Friday was my oldest son Levi’s birthday and on the way to school we got talking about his birth! The amazing story of how he came into this world! After I shared his birth story, my 3 other children asked about theirs! It was wonderful to think back to the day they were born and how each one was such a miracle and a Blessing to me! Each child has a different story of how they came into this world, not one was the same! So as I am doing my readings this week in the greatest salesman in the world by OG Mandino I keep being brought back to this conversation with my kids, and how we are all unique and different even tho we are all brothers! How each of my kids are unique, rare, not like any other, and natures greatest miracle! I am so happy and Blessed! Life is fantastic!

Wow it is January 2018 already! It is hard to believe how fast time flies by, and how much can change in just a year! My youngest (my baby) is going to be 4 years old in Feb. and he is starting pre school today! I am excited for him because he is super excited, and yet I am sad to see my baby boy starting a new adventure that does not include me standing there holding his hand. There is nothing better in this world then to see the complete joy on a child’s face, it just lights up a whole room and is contagious!
As a family we have been watching movies at night the past couple weeks and some of the movies we have watched are Rudy, Cool Runnings, Kung Fu Panda, and The Barbie Diaries. In my last blog I talked about Rudy so look at that if you want to know about that movie. But it was super cool all these movies are about having a dream and being persistent and following that dream, never giving up until they make that dream a reality no matter how many people or animals tell them they can’t! In cool runnings when he is looking in the mirror telling himself he is powerful and confident it was so funny cuz I looked over at my oldest son and said do you remember when I was looking in the mirror for 50 min reading my sentence over and over and you thought I was crazy! Does it still look crazy to you!
Kung Fu Panda in the beginning of the movie he is just dreaming of being one of the fearius 5 warriors, he sells noodles with his dad. By the end of the movie he is told he is the dragon warrior and that it is his destiny to save his people from a evil/fallen warrior. He is given the scroll of destiny, but when he looks at it it is blank and just a reflection of himself staring back at him. So he did not believe he was the dragon warrior. He sadly goes back to his dad to sell noodles and his dad said something to him “The secret ingredient to my secret ingredient noodle soup, is nothing” the dragon warrior said to his dad “What there is no secret ingredient no secret sauce” His dad said “no nothing, to make something great you just have to believe it is great” and then the dragon warrior realized he was indeed the dragon warrior because it is inside of him, it has always been inside of him! He just had to believe it!
The Barbie Diaries movie she had never kept a journal but once she started writing things down, her whole life changed. Things started happening in her life that had never happen before she was accomplishing things, she thought it was a magic journal but in the end realized that just putting your thoughts down on paper is a very powerful thing! She too had a big dream in the beginning of the movie and never gave up on it! She stayed persistent until she succeeded!
I am natures greatest miracle, and can’t wait to share it with everyone in 2018!!!

This week my kids are home on their Christmas break, we are having a lot of fun hanging out! Almost every night this week we have watched a movie before bed. Last night we watched the movie Rudy! Wow what a great movie! It is a movie about a guy named Rudy who has been dreaming since he was a boy to go to college at Notre Dame to play on their football team! Everyone in his life (except his best friend) told him it was just a silly dream and to wake up! His heart and determination is amazing! After the movie my almost 11 year old son said “see never give up on your dreams no matter what happens or what the odds are” He is such a smart boy, I am so incredibly proud of the young man he is! I think he saw himself in Rudy (he wants to be a professional baseball player)
This time of year can be very challenging to stay focused on what is truly important in life and on business/work. I am happy to say, so far this Christmas break has been a very good one with family gatherings and everything!!! I am excited to see what 2018 will bring! But I will take it one day at a time! Don’t want life to pass me by, or my kids to grow up too fast! Happy New Year Everyone!!

As I sit here and reflect on my week, I can’t help but smile over the changes that have taken place this Christmas season vs last year at this time! My DMP has so many areas that have been manifesting and “I am so very happy, we are all healthy, everyone got along great this holiday season, life is FANTASTIC!!!! “(That is my one sentence that I said for 50 min)
I did really like this quote “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing” because it is so very true! We must stay focused on what our main thing is and not loose sight of it! The more we stay focused the more we manifest! So excited for March, my journey has never looked so good and bright!
I do hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

The end of the year always seems to be such a busy time for me! This week my kids had their Christmas program for school! They did a fantastic job, they practiced hard for weeks! Christmas family celebrations are already starting this weekend. I am not done with my Christmas shopping! In my defense it would be a lot easier to buy gifts if I knew what people wanted! lol My oldest son stayed home from school sick today, I hope he is feeling better tomorrow (he has 2 basketball games to play) He will probably spend most of the game on the bench if he is feeling better! Things just pile up if you let them……
As I look around my living room, I see lots of positive reminders that everything is going to be okay, actually better then okay, because I have a plan, a purpose, a dream in action! My heart is in the right place, and I will persist until I succeed! So all in all Life is good and no matter how busy this time of year can be, I will persist!
Hope all have a fantastic day!

As I sit here thinking what to write about for my weekly blog, struggling to concentrate, watching my kids run around the room in circles, crashing into our Christmas tree, ornaments falling to the ground! My old blue print wants to yell and tell them to settle down, be quiet in the house…..but all I can do is smile and laugh at them. I am so incredibly Blessed, I have 4 beautiful, healthy, very active kids who all get along and play pretty well together! We have Love in our hearts and in this house! Scroll II really spoke to me and I look forward to Scroll III speaking to me in a different way! I will persist until I succeed. I still struggle with the 7 day mental diet but I am recognizing when opinions or negative thoughts are trying to creep there way into my mind! I am grateful for this amazing opportunity to learn and grow as the person I am meant to be! Parts of my DMP have been manifesting and that is a wonderful thing to see unfolding before my eyes! Thank you to all who make this happen! I hope you all have a fantastic day!!!
