Carpe Diem!

     Carpe Diem! Seize the day! That is Chad's motto!
Chad says, "SEIZE THE DAY!!"

     What a great way to live...enjoy the day, appreciate the day, actually see the day! What does that mean? What does it have to do with you and your family?
     If we could just stop during our hectic days, breathe, and see what is actually around us...amazing children, loving family, our innate knowledge, our ability to marvel and grow...wouldn't we enjoy each day just a bit more?

Scott says, "You can do it!!"

     Thinking and doing in positive ways leads to happier days. Do you want to try something new? Then do it...what's the worst that could happen? Jump in to your every day actions with a renewed heart. Be aware of the wonders of each day.
     Seize the day doesn't have to mean to go crazy and do over-the-top adventures (although it can !). It can mean to grab each piece of each day and appreciate the heck out of it!! Sometimes it's okay to let go of the daily chores so you can make memories with your family. Forget the sparkle from the dusted tables and make some sparkle in your kids' eyes!!


     Seize the day - as a person, as a parent, as a spouse!!
                    Carpe Diem!

Happy Parenting!
