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."

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!

This year Christmas hasn't felt quite the same. We aren't in our house yet with all of our things as we'd hoped and all of our Christmas decorations are in storage. =( That hasn't stopped us from celebrating though! We went and bought a little tree at Home Dept and let PReston go pick out a bunch of ornaments to decorate it. We had fun listening to Christmas music and decorating. Kind-of makes you realize that its really about the time we spend as a family doing these festive things and not necessarily about all the big, beautiful decor. Preston didn't know any different, he LOVES his little tree. =)We've bought a few other decorations to have around the apartment, so its turning out to be a nice little Christmas season in our apartment. Another one of our holiday traditions is to do the Angel tree. Every year we adopt a child the same age as Preston, talk to Preston about children just like him who don't have the things that he has. We always enjoy shopping for our angel and truly taking a step back to thank God for all of our many blessings! I pray this little family has a Merrier Christmas with these little treats we are sending their way. We have also enjoyed "Bell", our Elf on the Shelf this month! Excited to share all of the fun our Elf has brought Preston this year. Stay tuned for another post about Santa's sweet Bell that he sent our way this year. Can't wait to see what else Bell comes up with! Looking forward to a super fun Christmas at my moms this year! She's been hard at work getting everything decorated. I know that we will feel completely emersed in the Spirit once we arrive there Christmas week. Can't wait!
