Celebration Dinner and Snuggling

April 20 2012:

Celebration dinner. Marsala chicken, mashed potatoes, garlic cheese bread and caesar salad. Got our “Welcome to High Desert Montessori” message for next school year for Thomas and Lillian!!! YAY!!! Here’s to Team TLC!!

Pure BLISS …. Snuggling with Thomas and Lillian on the patio last night as the stars became visible and darkness approached, talking about the stars and listening to all the sounds … I’m grateful for these little moments. Life blossoms when we stop and soak in the precious gifts it holds for us … Happy Saturday Y’all!!

I am blessed to have both Thomas and Lillian in my life … They have taught and continue to teach me so much about the true meaning of life.

Blessings,

Monkeys and Farewells and Success

April 3 2014

Tonight’s dinner conversation … Thomas wants to grow up to be a monkey so he can hang out with Jane Goodall. He’ll also own a restaurant that serves humans and monkeys and that will give her more to study about him. He will also moo instead of making monkey noises, giving her even more to study.

After dinner as Lillian is drying the silverware, each piece became a doll once the towel was wrapped around it. Each doll had a 5-10 minute conversation with Thomas. He is something else! Didn’t miss a beat and was talking with genuine interest with each one. Here’s my one word … Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Here’s to our last dinner in this wonderful home! We have enjoyed every minute of living here and we are full of an eternal gratitude that we got to live here! May the joy continue in this house for we are taking our fabulousness, awesomeness, and HAPPINESS with us wherever we go and everywhere we go! ♡

In the midst of my mind telling me everything is going dead wrong, I receive messages that everything is actually going dead right! Coming in a future issue of Success magazine …. a full page article on the Success for Teens class I taught at HDMS.

Can’t wait to share the news with the school and students! This picture I took feels so powerful to me. Looks like a clenched fist and arm rising out of the dark cloud into the light. Let go. Rise above the past. No longer give power to  old stories. Anything is possible. Release it all. –Me

Team TLC Family Treasures 2012

Took all day …. Team TLC Family Treasures (our version of family rules) framed … Now to find somewhere good to hang it!!!

It’s not as simple as I’d like … but this was our first one!!! Next one will be more simple with less words …. Idea was sparked by a blog post on Live With Purpose about doing something “different” than ‘Family Rules’. Instead of “No this, that or the other” put what is expected. I added my own twist of “stuff” we treasure too!
