Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Riley's Retreat

Steve, Tiggy, Buddy and I took a weekend trip to our relaxing family lakehouse we call "Riley's Retreat" (family name) last weekend. We always enjoy PK lake. We've made a lot of great memories here. We love this place, and so do our dogs!

We went to the lake last weekend and had some time to reflect on the whirlwind of a year we've had so far. The majority of our reflection was on two people who made a deep impact in our lives, that we can no longer visit or call to say "I love you".

I don't know that there was ever a time that Stephen and I went to the lake that we didn't have Dee grilling something delicious for dinner and g-pa sitting at the table playing solitaire or waiting for one of us to mention Chicken Foot, he was ready to play! It wasn't easy walking in to our lakehouse last weekend without either of them greeting us.

Grandpa and Dee, we love you and miss you all dearly!

"You better know that in the end, it's better to say too much, than never to say what you need to say. Say what you need to say!" -John Mayer
