I thought this was a very cute video.
Just when you’re trying to do something nice… it backfires on ya!
One thing that he does is he follow me on Twitter. OK, there’s a bunch of people that follow me on Twitter, but he’ll actually talk to me about what’s going on. For example, I tweeted that I had an awful day. When I got home, he came straight to me and gave me a big hug. How awesome is that!?! He doesn’t really tweet anything, but he uses it to be involved with what’s going on with me.
We celebrated both Briana and Cairo’s birthdays at Rainforest Cafe at Grapevine Mills Mall. They had to get the Volcano dessert.
If you’ve got his phone number, please text or call him, he’d love to hear from you!
My beautiful Briana is 16 years old today! How do I slow time down!?! It seems like last year when we were going to Daddy-Daughter Dances. Now, I’m trying to keep my cool when boys are giving attention to her.
She’s such an awesome blessing! I’m so glad that she’s in our lives. She brings such a huge smile to my face!
Here’s a picture of her from this weekend’s High School JV Soccer Tournament. She scored during the tournament playing in the left midfielder position. Great to see her using that strong left foot.
If you’ve got her cell phone number, give her a call or text… she’d love it!
Texting is good for short little communications. One of my favorite uses is when Ursula asks me to get some groceries on the way home from work. Inevitably I used to always forget one key item. With a text I’ve got the whole list on my phone.
Last night was pretty awesome getting to see Briana score a goal in her high school soccer game. At first, I wasn’t going to be at the game because of what time it was at, but surprised Briana by making it. After the game, I told her how proud I was of her for taking the shot and making the goal. She received the praise and didn’t say much.
This morning I texted her to tell her that she’d have soccer practice on Sunday. Also, told her that I wouldn’t be able to make her game today since it was an early game and I’d still be at work. What came out of that simple communication was the following…
Me: Have a great day! Cannot make your game today. You made me proud with that goal. It was very sweet!
Briana: Aw thanks daddy you have a great day too you surprised me when you yelled my name it really made me happy
Me: Glad that I could put a smile on your face. You always put one on my face!
Communicating in a format that she’s comfortable with allowed her to open up a bit more and tell me how she really felt. That text truly touched my heart!
It’s that time of the year again! Time to make resolutions, uhhh… I mean goals. I’ve been following a lot of inspiring people on Twitter lately. Sarah Stanley has stated that resolutions set you up for failure and goals set you up for success! Check out her inspiring blog and follow her on Twitter - http://twitter.com/sarahstanley/.
These goals will all be successful with perseverance. Another inspirational person that I follow is Incredible Jane. She discusses her life as she’s training for a triathlon. Below is a great video of her as she talks about perseverance with her busy hectic life. I think we can relate to this, however, we might not be on that bike again.
Never ever give up!
