How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! If you are abundant in all of these, then you are the WEALTHIEST person in the world!

We purchased a little decorative sign many, many years ago that says, ” I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he is rich.”

rich

That sign hit home for us because we didn’t have 2 pennies to rub together at the time, yet we felt like we were ON TOP OF THE WORLD because Patrick and I had each other and 2 babies (at the time). We were just happy being together and it truly felt as if life couldn’t get any better.

All of these years later, we still have that little sign in our home. We actually just moved it today to a new shelf in our bathroom so we can see it more often and be reminded of this simple, yet important truth. Sometimes it is nice to hold onto those sentimental things from our past so we can see how far we have truly come.

Be BLESSED, sweet friends! <3

 

Happy MLK Day!

Happy MLK Day!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! We love these beautiful quotes from such a WISE and INSPIRATIONAL man. He was such an ENCOURAGEMENT to so many.

If you do anything in life, remember this… ALWAYS TAKE THAT FIRST STEP. It is one of the most difficult things that you will ever do, but no matter how scary it may be, it will be even scarier to stand still and to do nothing. There is a whole world waiting for you out there! A world that needs your GIFTS and TALENTS! A world that would not be the same without you! So, take a deep breath, take that first step, and trust that God is waiting for you at the top of that staircase.

And once you take that first step, keep moving forward! Don’t stop, no matter what! You may not be perfect at first, you may look silly, people may think you are crazy, and you may not be the best at it; but as time progresses, you will get to your goal! That finish line is calling your name, sweet friends! Don’t let the naysayers and negative thoughts get you down! Where you could be 1 year, 1 month, 1 week, or 1 day from now is ALWAYS better than where you are at now. Keep working at it and keep moving forward!

We Are Checking Another Worry Off Of Our List!

We Are Checking Another Worry Off Of Our List!

We are checking another worry off our our list today! We are viewing it as just another hurdle that we have had to jump while on this journey in attempts to improve Patrick’s health since finding out about his heart issues last September. (If you are new to our page and would like to catch up on what’s been going on, you can read up HERE, HEREHERE, and HERE.)

As of lately, Patrick has been having tightness in his chest accompanied by pains. We were not exactly sure what was causing them, but his cardiologist felt that it was best if he first underwent a stress test. Although, he wanted Patrick to undero another Cardoversion first before attempting to take a stress test. He definitely wanted Patrick’s heart rate to be under control for at least a month before trying anything else. His chest tightness and pains could have even been a result of his constantly rapid heartbeat because of his AFIB. So, getting his heart rate under control was a MUST.

At the time, all that we really knew was that we HAD to place all of our trust in God’s hands, and consistently move forward with treatment options. For one, he needed to feel better. His dizzy spells, pains, loss of breath, and constant tiredness have become the norm. And for me, it just breaks my heart to see my once VIBRANT, ACTIVE, and HEALTHY husband literally change so drastically PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, and EMOTIONALLY within a matter of months. I know he definitely does not like how he feels either.Continue reading

Happy New Year We Are Looking Forward To 2016!

Happy New Year, Friends! As we enter into 2016, we cannot help but look back on the year that we are leaving behind…2015. And boy are we happy to have it come to an end in order to start afresh in 2016!

Christmas Partayyy TIme

We were CHRISTMAS PARTYIN’ IT UP over the weekend, and we LOVED every second of it! We have had a very busy past 2 months working on Christmas orders 7 days a week. Even though we have been very BLESSED by all of our sweet clients, and the orders they brought, we have also been extremely exhausted.

Our orders, along with the ins and outs of daily life have had us longing for some down time and rest with our babies. And we can HAPPILY say that we came to an end this weekend. And these Christmas parties were the start of our LONG AWAITED, and MUCH ANTICIPATED CHRISTMAS BREAK!Continue reading

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture: Livin’ Life On The Wild Side

1. This is our youngest son. He is sweet, loving, kindhearted, hilarious, compassionate, and the BEST HUGGER IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. But he is also accident prone! Yes, friends… if there is something dangerous within a 1 mile radius, this kid is going to find it. Even if it is something that would not typically be harmful, he will still get hurt on it. And 9 times out of 10, he will get hurt on his poor head or face.Continue reading
