This past week my oldest child and I had a conversation about life lessons.  He has had some hard ones recently.  I told him that sometimes life makes a sharp right or left turn and how we handle that turn will determine the rest of the trip.  We determine how our life is, by how we react to life.  There have been some really hard times in my own life; but that being said, I would not trade what I have or where I am in life.  I really have a kick-ass family and I live in a house, on a property that most people would consider a vacation destination.  I am truly blessed.

The point here is that as you travel up or down the river of life, paddling helps.  I have some wonderful opportunities happening in my life right now and how I handle them will make them either good or bad….my choice.

I love life and I am so grateful for that!
