Father's Day 2009

I love seeing Conrad in his role as a Dad, he's amazing!  Aubrey loves her daddy so much. My girl looks so different with her hair straight. Makes her look more like her mama!

Happy Father's Day, Conrad!

Happy Father's Day

Aubrey and I are so lucky to have Conrad in our lives. He is such a wonderful father and husband. This picture is from their first Father's Day together. Aubrey was just a couple weeks old. Wow this year is their 3rd!

Mayonnaise Jar and cup of coffee

A Mayonnaise Jar & cup of coffee

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and a cup of coffee

A professor stood before his Philosophy 201 class and had some items in front of him.

When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.

The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full.

They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.

Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

He asked once more if the jar was full.

The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.

The students laughed.

'Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things---your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.

The sand is everything else---the small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or golf balls.

The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children.

Spend time with your parents.

Visit with grandparents.

Take time to get medical checkups.

Take your spouse out to dinner.

Practice "romance" as often as possible.

There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

Take care of "Mama" first---the things that really matter.

Set your priorities..

The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the cup of coffee represented.

The professor smiled and said, 'I'm glad you asked.'

The cup of coffee just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a cup of coffee with a friend.

Old Photo Friday

I miss the days when Aubrey would roll around on the floor. She couldn't really get into much, and when she couldn't run away from me. Now she's gone before I even know what happen. Look at those cheeks!!
