Last Day of School

Tomorrow ends the school year for Sheldon. I am amazed at how quickly this school year passed. We are thankful that Sheldon had a great year. He has matured so much. I believe he summed it up well when he said, "I like being in Mrs. Shenton's class because she is an exciting teacher with a very creative mind.

Sheldon, we are so proud of you. You are a such a kind hearted kid. I know we will have a great summer. I am looking forward to playing many golf games with you and Daddy.

Happy Father's Day! If there was a Dad's Hall of Fame, you would be in it! You are such a mighty example to follow. You are a natural motivator and your faith in God makes Mt. Everest look small.

Thank you for always leading by example. Your love for Sheldon and I runs deep. You have many titles but the greatest of all is Dad. Thank you for always taking time for us. Thank you for all the fun times we share. We have many precious memories that we will never forget! You are the Greatest Dad, and we love you bunches.

Life's Simple Pleasure: Taking Time Outside

A ray of sunshine, a balmy breeze Are a gift from God above, And He also gives us faithful friends. To warm our hearts with love.

Always enjoy those sun, shiny days. Spending time with family and friends always adds to the enjoyment of life. Play football with your son. Take a walk with your spouse. Enjoy a yummy ice cream cone. Life is too short to spend it inside your house looking out. Step out and enjoy the scenery. You will not be disappointed!

You Always Have A Choice

We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. We always have the choice. (Dalai Lama)

So, what are you going to choose? Regardless of what you choose, you still must put forth the effort to implement your choice. It's going to take genuine effort on your part to change your negative choices into positive ones, but you can do it. Choose to see the beauty around you even when it is hidden behind the dark clouds. Choose to give God the glory!
