to my kids

you don't really know it yet. not really. the incredible dad you have in this man.
you see it some. just not in full. we never really do when we're kids.

i smiled at your notes. reading how you adore him. the pride you have.
every child feels that of their dad, i think.
the light that sets off in their eyes that this.. this is my dad!
i'm grateful i still see that light in you.
some dads quench it out so early. not even knowing. not even aware.

having a dad that's aware is a gift!

(Lord willing) Back in october & november we started taking foster parenting classes, to be foster parents!! Right now we are in the proses of our home study. They are hoping to have all the paper work done by feb.1st chenille patch.

Then hopefully we can be licened!!!! This is exciting for us (esp.the children) and yet i have sooo much mixed emotions about all this,but with Gods help i can do this. The agency that were working with is "fostering too adopt". So eventully we were thinking of maybe adopting, well God has other plans for us!! (Im sitting here crying just on thinking that God knows how we are hurting and what our hearts yearn for) We are adopting a baby from S.C. in april.. (Thats when the baby is due property in brazil)!!

Its a long story how this all happened.(Im still am in shock on how this all came about.) So far doors have been opening and right now our hopes for this baby is that the mother doesnt change her mind after the baby is born nu skin!!

If you think of us pray for us that all will work according too Gods plan!! We are planning to meet the mother in 2wks.. Kinda scary.. I know God will help us each step of the way. We are totaling Trusting Him!! We already found out what it is and it a BOY!

we'd be staying here

it's weird though how you can know something's coming.. and yet it still take you by surprise!
like the drop on a roller coaster. you're slowly going up.up.up. higher and higher. and you know what's on the other side. you anticipate it. it's why you're on there to begin with. that thrill!
but then. then there's that pause at the top. that pause for a split second that's just long enough for your life to flash before your eyes and suddenly you think this isn't such a great idea after all! you want off. you want out. and hey! those stairs that run alongside the tracks are there for a reason!! thing is, there's that heavy metal bar across your chest holding you in. you're already committed. there's no backing out. so what do you do? the only thing you can - - shut your eyes hard. hold on tight. and scream at the top of your lungs as you plunge straight forward down towards the earth at eye watering speed nuskin hong kong!

i'd say we're still in that "drop mode" around here. or maybe that's just what it means to be self employed. ha!
but the biggest adjustment for me wasn't the switch from the norm. the security of an every two week paycheck. the loss of benefits. or having a company truck or computer or perks... it was coming to terms with the realization we'd be staying here longer!

i remember the first time it hit me. we were driving somewhere together, shayne and i. he was talking about things with the business and since i'm not really a very business minded kind of gal i just sat and smiled pretty and nodded my head. but then, he mentioned something about 6, 7, 8 years down the road and i felt like my brain went fuzzy. i think i was still smiling and nodding but i wasn't hearing a word he said. after awhile he asked, "babe? you listening nuskin product?"

"huh?" i said snapping back to attention, "uh.. no. you kinda lost me at the 6, 7, 8 year thing..."

this move here was never supposed to be long term. it was never the plan.
and though i said i "surrendered" my plans to God, suddenly surrender looked entirely different.
and that moment in the car was one of those moments on top of the roller coaster. that pause.
hello! let me off this thing. this is not what i thought it was!!

How do we treat others?

How do we treat others? Do we step out of our comfort zone to reach out? Do we actually live by the "Golden Rule" or is it just something we say to make ourselves feel better? Do we make a difference in someone's life? Have you made a difference in just one person's life today nu skin?

Doing "one good thing" for someone else usually requires us to step out of our comfort zone. After a while, stepping out of that comfort zone becomes habit, and becomes a way of life. Nathan Steen decided as a teenager that he would make sure that he always did several good deeds a day for others nuskin hk.

Written in a venue similar to Nicholas Sparks, this is a story, among other things, about how our actions affect others. One good thing turns into one good thing into another good thing, and so the ripple continues nuskin hk.

Although the story was predictable, the means to get there was an interesting journey. Negative situations can be defining factors in how we live our lives. We can choose to let the negativity consume us and become bitter, or we can find the good in any situation and make our life better. "The best we can do is to do our best."

An inspirational and thought provoking book. How can one person help so many people? One person at a time nu skin.

have lunch with friend

This week wasn't as busy as the one before. For those of you who are following RH's battle against Cancer , RH had his third chemo treatment on Wednesday. This one really took a toll on him. He said he felt very fatigued after the treatment and he had trouble sleeping too. The nurse said the steroids cause sleeplessness. Thursday he had his first white cell shot to rebuild his immune systemComelow.

Fortunately he wasn't bothered too much by the shot although he did say he didn't feel well for a few hours. He did sleep much better that night. He didn't complain about any achy bones after the shotplastic storage drawers.

Next week is his free week so he will go 14 days without any chemo. We hope he will have more energy so he can do some things he enjoys. Monday we are having lunch with friends, Tuesday RH is having lunch with his best friend and we want to go to a casino for some fun next week as wellinternational SEO.

best things

It was really fun, we all had fun using the oil to fry things. One of my brothers did something extremely weird and fried a little weenie wrapped in a marshmallow that was also wrapped in some dough. It was both hilarious and disgusting storage solution.

There were people that tried to roast marshmallows in the oil, and others that dipped fruit in the tempura batter and then ate it. I tried that, but thought it was gross. It was lively and everyone enjoyed themselves the whole evening Cable manufacturer.

After we got done eating and everything winded down, we read the Night Before Christmas poem, the story of Jesus's birth from the book of Luke in the bible, and this story called "The Littlest Angel". We all went and did our own thing after this, and I have just been surfing ever since and watching stuff on Youtube. I don't think anything else is going to happen tonight. My family started watching "Merlin" upstairs, but I haven't seen season 5 yet, so that is why I came down here. Anyway, today has been fun and exciting. I have no doubt that tomorrow will be the same Hong Kong Company Secretary.

I got to talk to Ronnie tonight, he has been having a good day today. I was hoping he would have a good Christmas. I think getting to share my day with him, the pictures and the videos was definitely one of the best things to happen today 亞洲知識管理學院.

I love sharing stuff with Ronnie. We always have the best conversations and always have fun when we talk to each other. He definitely brightened up my day, even though it was already pretty bright.
