Value Your Time

Do you know how much value your time is worth? Do you use the time you have to it’s full potential? I use to think the value of my time was my hourly wage at work. A raise meant my time was more valuable. Boy was I wrong! Now it has been about 3 1/2 years since I have had an hourly wage put on my time. I feel much better about myself and about how valuable my time truly is.

How can we help the Kids being Bullied?

I came across a video today that really hit home. At first a played it and didn’t like it. It seems like they were blaming the parents for why the kids are acting badly towards other kids. But I kept it playing as I did other things. As it played I heard an AMAZING message for ALL kids.

If we were to write down this message and have it posted for kids to see. If they read it just once everyday it would be in their minds. It would help them get through the bad days, it would remind them they are stronger than the words that other people say to them.

Please check it out. And if you agree with me at all please share it! I can’t believe this video has such a small number of views! This is something every parent and child should see!

Do you think if everyone believed this message that the world would be a better place? I think if we can stop giving bullies the reactions they seek, we can end bullying! What do you think?

Mother’s Day Card for Grandma

It has taken me until the end of today to post this as I wanted to make sure the 2 wonderful grandmas got the real card before seeing it on-line.  The best part about this homemade card is that it can be for any time; Birthday, Mother’s Day or just because.

My kids and I had a lot of fun making these cards. I love including the kids hand prints and foot print as it gives that personal feeling that you can’t always get with little ones who can’t color yet. However William was very able to add his coloring to the card this time.
