MaKayla's Mom told her that they were going to a park to leave motivational painted rocks for people to find, but it was also to surprise her for her Pot of Gold! Our volunteer, Dillon, had everything out and ready so it was a nice surprise for MaKayla. She loved all of her gifts. Someone at Primary Children's was teaching her how to play the Ukulele so she wanted her own. She loves brushing her teeth, so we bought her a power toothbrush. We also got her several other things she really liked! Loved to see that big smile!!

Definitely feeling the love from my friends today! This is my hope for you, today and everyday!
Love is Patient! I’m not so sure that the reason we have to wait for things we want in life, no matter whether it’s professionally or personally is to teach us how to love! Speaking for myself, my life has been one gigantic exercise in patience and I have a lot of love to give the world! I believe God has been using my life to teach me how to control my passion in order to love people and the world properly!
TODAY is Senior white picture!!! Yes, the traditional Spring picture isn’t happening. Instead, the challenge has been extended for the Senior class to wear white after Labor Day, and to stand on a wet hillside.
Girls, hope you had sufficient time to find a white dress this time of year...Boys, don’t forget to wear your football cleats.
Life lessons learned! You’re awesome, never forget that!
I Have been trying to schedule my time better ❤️ as some days it all gets too much and I want to just throw in the towel and be a stay at home mumma (not that that’s any easier but I seem to be doing both at the moment) ..my work seeps into every living moment and I’m one of those people that has to answer an email or text immediately so that I can tick it of my ‘to do’ list! ...hence there’s never any let up ❤️ I live by the beach and am making it a priority in my weekly schedule to do a big walk one morning week (more if I can but one step at a time!) and to try my best to not panic if I get an email / text...what’s the rush...? Today I had a lovely stroll with Bella the dog and my bestie at @socially_seen
in my lovely new jacket from @tkmaxx
....isn’t it fab?! ❤️

Can't believe it's been a year since Gwenni was first sat on!! 😱 The year has gone so quickly. We've taken it so slow, with just a few short hacks the start of the year and then her having 5 months off (apart from the bareback strolls around the yard 🤣) over the summer while we dealt with the sarcoid, hopefully we can start slowly again in the new year. 😁 I'm so happy that she's had the time to grow, fill out even more, and take it all in. 😊
One of my pet hates is seeing these 3/4 year old sports horses for sale that have 'done it all'... competing show jumping, dressage, xc, hunting etc.. argghh why would I want to buy that horse now after it's been rushed into doing everything so young, those poor limbs #slowlydoesit #rantover
I took so many photos this morning .. was actually getting a bit ridiculous 🙄 almost chatted myself to just stop and run or I’ll never finish .. but then thought .. where’s the race ? What’s the rush ?? I just saw beauty in so much this morning .. I had to enjoy it in ‘that moment ‘ ... so .. 17km and 17,000 photos later ... i collected lots of wonderful moments ..✨✨🌿Here’s a tree .. one of many .. we all know my fascination with trees ..☝🏽🌿

While everyone starts RUSHING into the thought of Winter ❄️ and the CRAZINESS of the holidays 🎁🎅🏼
I’ll be over here peacefully taking my time to soak up the beauty of this moment 😌🍁
Feel free to join me 🧡

It still amazes me how we can have this ability to make major life changing decisions over a temporary upset. Sometimes we don’t even attempt to talk it through. We just up and change. In the end we find ourselves far away from where we should be and missing our destiny.
It’s November 1st. They still have ghosts hanging from branches of a tree in the yard but wreath and garland are already up. #whatstherush
Time to slow down and take a little time for me! 🙌🏻 Life can get so crazy - from work to keeping up with all of my kids’ activities and everything in between. You feel me, right? Well, I’m making an effort to take at least 10 minutes per day to do something just for me. 👏🏻 Who’s on board?! Today I’m enjoying a little peace and quiet with @wallabyyogurt
and a good book. 📚My favorite delicious organic yogurt and a great read is a fabulous combo! 💕Stop by your nearest @wholefoods
and pick some up or use the product locator (clickable link in bio) to find it at a store near you https://ooh.li/178848b #ad
UP IN THE AIR
Let’s talk travel tips or more specifically #traveletiquette
. Ugh, dont’ get me started on the people who board the plane and immediately take of their shoes. Or the middle row sitter who refuses to put the armrest down. I’m not trying to be difficult, but as Baby says in DIRTY DANCING “this is my space, this is your space.” Those pet peeves are pretty obvious to your frequent flyer, but let’s talk about some things that aren’t as obvious.
First, WAIT... seriously just wait. Once the plane has landed - if you’re not battling an incredibly short layover- don’t rush up the aisle and block rows in front of you from deboarding properly. It’s just rude. Seriously, just take those extra couple of minutes to meditate. It will benefit you and the rest of the plane immensely. Secondly, flight attendants aren’t servants. Be RESPECTFUL. Say please and thank you. It’s such a simple lesson, but goodness is it missing in daily communication.
Now let’s talk security.... wear SOCKS or at least bring them. Honestly, those x-ray machines and even just the airport ground isn’t cleaned enough. Do yourself a favor and avoid athlete's foot! Finally and seriously... STOP RUSHING the baggage belt. It does no one any good for you to take up space when your luggage hasn’t even been off boarded. After being squished into a seat on an overbooked plane for hours, enjoy your space. Sit back, relax and DON’T APPROACH THE BAGGAGE BELT until you actually see your luggage. (Can I get an Amen!)
That’s my PSA for the day. You’re welcome. Enjoy your flight and next adventure! #tourList
I’ve started wondering what the rush is all about.
Rushing from one chore or task to another. Rushing to get out the door, rushing to get supper, rushing to get the dishes done and the kids to bed.
What advantage have you ever gained from rushing? Even the thought of it gives me a gross, heavy feeling.
Is there a race to the finish line?
I want to embrace the present. Be present. It’s time to enjoy the journey along the way, enjoy the ride, and stop worrying about how fast I get to the destination 💫
