The gift of love

Four kids. Four personalities. One goal – live a HAPPY life.

In today’s world when we seem to be always in a hurry, we have to step back and say,     “Why are we always in a rush?”

And when we want to be the best, we seem to wait until something is perfect, but why?

In focusing on a goal, why fear disappointments?

Don't fear disappointments too much, you'll just end up downgrading your goals. You’ll never be satisfied with your achievements because they won’t be substantial enough. So why fear disappointments?

Just try to do your best, and forget the rest! Dream BIG and keep smiling!

Here’s a little montage of pictures with my son’s poem for his grandma.
Just for you to remember that you are one special person!

As I was taking a run, 
I noticed that all of the leaves on the trees I passed had started to wither and fall. 
I assumed this to be the natural order of things: 
the leaves grow; 
they flourish; 
and nature takes its toll until the leaves die, the branches fall, and the tree is barren.
when I came across several evergreen trees, its stability and consistency reminded me that some are not subject to the weathering forces around them. 
This truth reminded me of our family. 
Despite nature’s toll, we always manage to survive and find happiness. 
That made me think, “Why is our family like an evergreen and not like the other faltering trees?” I realized that the reason why our leaves don’t fall is because of you. 
No matter what, whether you are sad, tired or sick, 
you are always willing to be to encourage the family.
