Good Morning!

As I prepare to leave my house for the day (nothing like waking up with the sun at 4:30am), I wonder what today will bring. Some friends are struggling with the illness and pending death of loved ones (you are in my prayers), others are travelling to my neck of the woods (drive safe and come soon!) for the 4th of July weekend, and still others seem to be fine tuning their skills in bringing drama with them wherever they go.

Why can't people just be happy, or at least satisified, with their lives? If you don't like something ... change it. Don't like your job - find a new one. Wish you had more friends - make them. Feel like no one likes you - time for a self-evaluation and possible change in your personal approach to life and others. Aren't happy in your marriage - well, this one is a bit trickier..., but you get the point.

"You are as happy as you make up your mind to be." - Mark Twain
I fullly believe in this quote and today I'm deciding to be happy. Save the drama for your momma as I work harder to be more compassionate, more optimistic, more thoughtful and less thoughtless. Time to go and make friends with a new day!

Jodi!!! I miss you guys and hope you're enjoying life in Miami (insert Will Smith song here - btw, thank you for ruining that for me!)

Apparently I was on a gung-ho bender this morning (lack of sleep will do that to you). Can I just say what a huge geeky English nerd I am. As I'm re-reading my post I'm finding spelling and punctuation errors galore. Apparently I REALLY believe in the Lincoln quote since I spelled "fully" with three "L"s instead of two. Yep, that's how strongly I feel about it.

Hope you were successful with the weird lady downstairs, but remember, we're all a little weird. You should know better than married weird when you married Cory! Just kidding. Love you both and your two beautiful girls.
