Just keep swimmin', swimmin', swimmin'......(Dori the blue fish in NEMO)

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination are omnipotent."     Calvin Coolidge

  Develop good character, focus on the big picture and stop making excuses. 
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Live. Laugh. Love.

Logan being silly

What a funny picture of my sweet Logan. Lately, he has been seeing how much he can get away with. Basically, just being plain naughty,  This picture is special to me. Only about an hour after taking it, Logan got nearly all that pretty wavy hair cut off. That is right....OFF.  He already looked just like his daddy-now he really looks like his daddy's childhood pics.  It is super short-a tiny bit longer on top that the side/back. When I get over the shock of it, I will take his picture. It is so odd-but he looks so different-that he almost seems like a little impostor. He is still a cutie-pie and we are all crazy about him.

Keep A Sense Of Humor

When everything else fails...LAUGH. While it is easy to laugh when everything is going good, it is important to keep laughing in times of adversity. Nothing can improves improves emotional health like laughter can.  It relieves stress and helps to put things in perspective.
 When things go wrong..often life is teaching us a lesson we need to learn. Be grateful for times that you wish had not happened, for these times can help you grow into a better person.Ask yourself, "Did I actually fail. or did I have unrealistic expectations?" Try to not fall into the trap of blaming others and at the same time, try to not beat yourself up all the time.  It's okay if you fall~we all do~as long as you learn something as you get back up. Get back on your feet. Keep trying. Keep laughing. Keep living.
