I had the pleasure of introducing a some people to each other yesterday.  It feels great to do that.  I know in my heart that connecting these people will make wonderful things happen that will help people.

Chloe is going through a phase of learning some important lessons.  It’s been a rough few days for her but I’m proud of the way she’s handling it.  I wrote about it at the link below.  The most important lessons she’s learned is to ask for help when you need it.

Tell Your Kids Your Story

I’m feeling a little overwhelmed lately.  I have so many irons in the fire and I’m feeling frazzled.  The days are flying by so quickly and I feel as though there aren’t enough hours in the day.  At the same time I’m trying not to sacrifice time with my family.  I find myself sitting down to write or do some work whenever I have a minute.  I’m writing this while waiting for Chloe to finish her cheerleading practice.   I think part of is that other people are now offering to help me and I don’t want to let them down.  This is starting to get more real which is exactly what I want.  At the same time its pretty damn scary.

I did 17 sets of dumbbell thrusters yesterday with the 61 pound kettlebells.  I felt really good.  I was planning on doing 20 but I had to run out and get Tanja some cough syrup.  Then we watched the latest episode of Shadow Hunters.  Even though the show is absurd I kind of like it for some reason.  I think I just like spending the time with the girls.  Plus I never have a clue what’s going on so they get to explain it to me five times each show.  Oddly, they seem to enjoy it.

I am grateful for the way we are handling Chloe’s reading situation.  We talked about it, agreed on a game plan and are playing our roles really well.  Excellent team parenting.

I’m grateful that our kids have such solid values and I believe they will always try to do the right thing.  Well, mostly always.  I don’t want to get too presumptuous.

I am grateful for this incredible weather.  We have hardly had any snow this winter.  I feel like spring is upon us already.  I’mk starting to feel close to breaking out my amazing bike.  I’m going to take it in to get tuned up today.

I am grateful for today.  What are you grateful for?
