Cutest Picture Ever

Well.  It's actually one of many cutest pictures ever of my nieces and nephews.  In this photo my nephew Tanner is playing with his new IPhone.   Tanner's niece, my great niece,  Mallie Belle is wanting to lend some advice.

Because it's the Cup....

Because it's the Cup I've decided to NOT watch Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals.  I'm hoping that will change the momentum of series and pull the Rangers through to a victory.

No couch coaching tonight....

Collection of Words to Live By

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore, and who always will. So don't worry about the people from your past, there's a reason they didn't make it into your future. Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. A sharp tongue will cut my own throat. If I want my dreams to come true, I must'n oversleep. Of all the things I wear, my expression is the most important. The best vitamin for making friends....B1. The happiness of my life depends on the quality of my thoughts. The heaviest thing I can carry is a grudge. One thing I can give and still my word. I lie the loudest when I lie to myself. If I lack the courage to start, I have already finished. One thing I can't recycle is wasted time. Ideas won't work unless "I" do. My mind is like a functions only when open. The ten commandments are not multiple choice. The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what I might have been. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the one's who don't. Believe EVERYTHING happens for a reason and is controlled by God. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. Friends are like balloons, once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and what's wrong. There are two sides to every story.  Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. In order to keep mistakes and wrongs from happening again, remember the past but don't let it consume your future. Don't waste your life wallowing in the past, or dream of a future that may never be, but live today.

Turn Down for What
