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."

Workman Family Reunion

A few weeks ago we took a road trip to Arkansas to meet up with the Workman family. This is my dad, his sisters and brother and all of their families. It had been several years since we had all gotten together! It was great to see all of the family and amazing to see how much the family had grown! We had a get together the first night at my Aunt Patty's house. The next morning we headed to a nice lake in the area where we played all day. It was beautiful; there! We all enjoyed catching up with each other throughout the day! The kids enjoyed playing in the lake, hunting for frogs, worms and lightening bugs (all of which were caught at some point throughout the day) and water gun fights. That evening we headed back to my Aunt Patty's house for a homemade ice cream contest (which dad/Sheri won) and some frosty beverages. The next morning we met up for breakfast, made a quick stop at another one of our uncles houses to say hi  and then hit the road. Good times were had by all! So thankful to have this time with family outside of weddings and funerals!
