" Are you Easily Bothered ?? "

Are you the one that yells at the car ahead of you going to slow ?

Are you the one that gets mad because the lady ahead of you has too many coupons ?

Are you the one that snaps at someone ?

Are you the one that says things before thinking ?

I have noticed the crabby people in the store. On the road or even in your my children's school. That seem very easily bothered. The little things in life set them off. Talking to them or being around them is a DOWNER.

So I have been trying to remember to myself .."Gosh I hope I'm not like that. " Then I catch myself doing it. So I starting trying to make it a priority. Taking mental notes about how I could have acted different to that event. It works I'm more Happy and not so tired. Being the uptight person is not a happy way to be.

Things don't always go as planned. People don't care as much as you think they do. Your kids can be kids that's the great part of being a kid. You husband has to live with you. So just be the happy PERSON. I promise people will look at you and THINK man I want to be HAPPY like her.

Its all in our WORDS and SMILE !!

Teacher appreciation week !!

Do you know who is the best teacher in the world ??

Well we do ..because we were BLESSED to have her.

Mrs. Kelly Greene

Keep Smiling - It makes people wonder what you have been up to.

All the things she does with her class = amazing. I have never know someone with so much life to give. She touches hearts. I know Joell and Our Family will never forget her.

Our Son Joell has Autism. Social situations were very hard for Joell the first two years of school. The first day of school Mrs. Greene told me that her goal this school year was to get Joell to know "FIVE" people. WOW .... Today the "HOLE" school knows Joell even 8Th graders, and guess what he knows them. He has turned into a "DIFFERENT" child. Thing might always be hard for Joell but I know without her he would not have the "Strength" to fight back.

He will tell you " I have Autism." and that means I think different. It does not make me less. I'm smarter then most people in math.....but its hard for me to understand "JOKES" and I really just want to talk about me...but I'm working on it. He is AMAZING just like her !!

Mrs. Greene has not only help Joell but our son Tristin too. Just like me school is very hard for Tristin. He is the FUNNY guy. The person everyone just loves spending time with. He is a lover. In the first weeks of school Mrs.Greene noticed his attitude about not liking school. Well she changed that. He loves school and Books. I have to tell Tristin more then once a day to put down that book and eat, do chores. Its a dream come true.

Even our LITTLE boys love Mrs Greene. They always ask to go see her.

I just wanted to share a little about Mrs. Greene I could go on and on.

We love you Mrs. Greene !!!

"Missing them like CRAZY'

Oh, How WE miss you guys

This last two months they have been on my mind day and night.

We never talked everyday....but we always made time for each other. I'm sure at times I drove her NUTS. As she did me with her "OCD". hehe

We were pregnant together and had our children about a month apart. Spring was always a big time for us. Birthday's and as always are Disney on ice shows. Fun times !!

I wish she was here ....

Mo ..... Your amazing !! You always told me that but I could not do what you do.

Day 2 " The Love Dare"

Day 2

"Love is kind"

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as god in Christ also has forgiven you.

Ephesians 4:32

Love makes you KIND. And kindness makes you likeable. When you're kind, people want to be around you. They see you as being good to them and good for THEM.

Its only day TWO. Its feeling more like day 33. I believe its because I'm really trying.

Today's Dare

In addition to saying nothing negative to your spouse again today, do at least one unexpected gesture as an act of kindness.

Really ?!?!? Just one kind thing and keep my mouth shut. I got this !! :) That's what I thought when I read the DARE for the day. So I changed it up a little. My thought was that's too easy so I will do kind things ALL day. What was I thinking ?!?! LOL After half the day went by the thougth crossed my mind. Now I know why they said at least one thing. That's why you should follow directions. :) but I had already did it half the day so I just kept going. Now do remember. I have been taking care of Brooks for the last 2 weeks, so I felt like man I have been doing kind things for the last two week.

* Getting him drinks , Food etc

* Helping with baths

* Helping him walk

* Helping him help him self :) :)

You get my point. So this DARE for me was already on a thin line... But I did it.

Remember Brooks is doing the book too. So it was cute seeing him try to help me the last 5 Min's before bed. I will take what he gives. :) :)

Its working in our LIFE and its only DAY 2 :) :)

Go get your book :) :) :)

Take the DARE ..We DID !!

Day 1 " The Love Dare"

Day 1

The LOVE Dare

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Today's Dare

For the next day, demonstrate PATIENCE and to say nothing negative to your spouse at all.If the temptation arises,choose not to say anything. It's better to hold your tongue than to say something you'll regret.

This is easy for me to do with my children but not with my husband. So I knew this Dare would be hard for me.

The morning started out rocky and I thought to my self. He did not read day one. I stayed strong and bit my tongue. I left for the doctor while the kids took naps. When I got home he greeted me with a smile. The kids had woke up and he had made them a snack. After a few hours went by I noticed the change in his mood and voice. I went to go sit on the sofa and GUESS WHAT ... He must have read day one while I was gone. His book was right there on the sofa.

Lets just say by the end of the night. We were cuddling on the sofa together. It goes to show ..if you watch your tongue. They listen more.

Thanks for all the kind words and support.

I'm going to do a daily blog about our next 39 days. In hopes that it helps others. Even if you have the best marriage ever or one like mine. This book helps tons of couples. Take the dare "WE" did. Thanks to A "FRIEND".

I'm just going to open up and spill out. As I have said before many times, at the end of this road I will know who is there and who is not. I have been putting my Friends first and Husband and Family last. I'm trying to have healthy friendships in my life. I feel like the best kind of friendship are the ones that know LIFE happens. We might not talk everyday but when we do its like we never missed a DAY. I love ALL my friends and have TONS of great friends. Its not the friends its "ME". I would give the shirt of my back for a friend but would get upset if Brooks needed mine. At one point in "LIFE" Brooks and I could not wait to see each other. The world around me stopped and he was ALL I could see. I want that back again. :) :) Its been a few years. Our kids always come first we are " so in LOVE with them." but to have healthy kids you need the health marriage. So with all that said GOD, Husband, Children, Family and FRIENDS. :) :) :) The love Dare Book starts next week its a 40 Day Challenge for married couples. Brooks and I are going to do it. We want to fall in "LOVE" with each other again.
