    Don’t be unhappy if your dreams never come true — just be thankful your nightmares don’t.

    No dream comes true until you wake up and go to work.

    Between tomorrow’s dream and yesterday’s regret is today’s opportunity.

  • How to spend a day

    Posted on April 6th, 2010 Pam 1 comment

    If you only had one more day to live, how would you spend it?

    Would you go to work as usual? NOT !!!!!!
    Would you watch TV or DVR? NOT !!!!!!
    Would you go shopping? NOT !!!!!!

    Would you spend time getting your finances in order? Something you should have done long ago.
    Would you spend time doing all the projects you have been putting off for years?
    Would you spend all your money before it’s too late?

    Would you spend time with family and friends?
    Would you spend time reflecting on your life?
    Would you spend time doing something for someone else?

    Will you live this day like it was your last?
    Will you FILL this day full of productive things?

    What will you do today ?????

  • What have you learned?

    Posted on March 5th, 2010 Pam No comments

    What have your Parents taught you?

    They taught me to work very very hard.
    To set goals and work hard to achieve them.
    You don’t have to have ‘things’ to be happy.
    –Julie Baldwin

    What have your Children taught you?

    1. Communication–We have spent lots of time learning how to communicate our feelings and making up rules that we can all live with. My children have helped me to learn the value of compromise and patience as we have learned to communicate over the years.
    2. Computer skills–My children have each been so patient teaching me how to use the computer. They take time to explain things to me and often have to show me over and over again, but they never complain.
    3. Confidence–They have each been so encouraging as they express confidence in my abilities even when I feel very insecure. They let me know that they believe I am accomplishing good things even when I feel inadequate.
    4. Friendship–I have learned over the years that my very “best friends” are found right in my own family. There is no one I would rather spend time with than my children. I love to visit with them and listen to their ideas as we share and learn together.
    5. Scripture journal–My daughters taught me how to keep a scripture journal to write down the things I learn and the feelings I have as I read the scriptures each day.
