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."

Labor Day Weekend

We had quite an eventful Labor Day weekend. Saturday one of Stephen's cousins got married here in Dallas. So, we spent some time with family that we don't get to see very often. It was a beautiful wedding and we really enjoyed catching up with everyone. Pictured w/ Mr. Mota: Aunt Gloria, Aunt Yolanda and Uncle Henry.

After the wedding, Stephen, Stephanie, Gene, Z, Mindy and I all headed to our lakehouse for the rest of the holiday weekend. We did just about everything there is to do out there. We tubed, did some skiing, played volleyball, horseshoes, washers, BBQ'd, jumped off the dock, floated in the water, played capture the flag and even got in some charades. It was so much fun!! I love it out there!

Monday, we met up with mom and grandma on our way home to give grandma her birthday present and grab a bite to eat before heading home. Needless to say we were exhausted, so we caught a nap when we got home and got ready for another week. More good times to remember with family and friends.
