“…what remains ours alone to choose…is how we will spend our life.”
Making me think… “The Power of a Whisper” By Bill Hybels
This is a very thought-provoking book, I highly encourage you to read.
No guilt, just TILT!
#TILTtip Book Club
We all struggle with so many different directions we can focus. How do we know what to focus on? John Izzo’s book helps us self discover what could matter most.
John interviewed 200+ people over age 60. “To live wisely we must recognize that there are two fundamental truths about a human life.
#1 The first is that we have a limited and undefined amount of time –
it may be 100 years, it may be 30.
#2 The second is that in that limited and undefined amount of time we have an almost unlimited number of choices of how to use our time – and those choices ultimately define our lives.”
Read his book to get a better understanding of how to have
more happiness, and love, in your life.
Ever had one of those days??
DON’T LET AN OVERWHELMING SEASON
Allow yourself to “tread water” some and don’t pressure yourself for perfection,
take a deep breathe and focus instead on what makes this “season” in your life special,
watch funny youtube videos for a brain break (check out Studio C),
and (take action) go have an ice cream with someone little around you
who loves you so much.
Sooner than you realize, you will be chasing them down instead of the reverse.
Many wishes for a sweet summer season
making memories with those you love,
(P.S. The Pudgy photo above is from our next Ellie book coming out this fall –
“Ellie’s Fun Day at the Farm.”
We had to rescue Pudgy before she became lunch!)
Motherhood is not for sissies.
That’s why we have Mother’s Day. Because we deserve it.
That moment when…
Your child throws up in the car in the middle of your road trip.
Your child out of the blue refuses to wear button shirts. For 8 years.
Your child hands you a booger.
Your child tells you his art teacher is evil. Then insists on it repeatedly. In front of the principal.
Your child keeps telling you knock knock jokes. They are so bad you can’t even pretend laugh. But she won’t stop.
Your child takes off her shoes in the car, and you have to open the windows to breathe.
Your child belches so loudly in the restaurant that the cook in the kitchen had to hear it.
Your child trips and throws the bug bucket filled with dirt and worms all over an unexpecting woman.
That moment when…
They tell you they love you and don’t know what they would do without you. To infinity and beyond. Better than their favorite ice cream with whip cream and sprinkles on top. To the ends of the universe and back.
That’s why we have Mother’s Day. To celebrate it all.
Enjoy this wonderful day!!
