Her smile makes me smile. Her laugh is infectious. Her heart is pure and true. Above all I love that she is my daughter.

This morning I mentioned that today would have been my grandmas birthday and Kate said we should send her a balloon up in heaven.
.
“How do we do that”? I asked her.
.
Just send a ballon up into the sky and God will give it to her, she said. ❤️
.
My sweet little girl gets to do the honors.
.
Happy birthday Grandma!

One of the struggles I have and the reason I post about it so much is to remind myself and who ever else needs to be reminded "Enjoy the journey as it's happening. Be proud and learn to love yourself every step of the way because if you dont, when you get to your destination or the place you "think" you should be, you still wont be happy." You wont be happier if you have more money, or a bigger house. You wont be happier when you loose 10 pounds and fit those pants that have been sitting there staring at you, go buy a new pair till those do. 
You need to love you for you. ALL of you!! Slow down and take in the little moments, like hot tub dates in the crisp sunshine in the am with this guy❤

First workout on the step today! 🙌
.
I’m uncoordinated as heck but I loved every minute of it.  There is just something so exhilarating about these moves. .
Do you have 20 minutes a day to put into you?  Taking care of yourself isn’t selfish.  When you take the time to take care of you first we are able to do all this other things that we are so busy with more efficiently and pour into our families and communities with more patience and energy.
.
I promise you it’s worth it! ❤️

Here’s a little snippet of my workout today.

Celebrating Christmas is a good opportunity to practice staying positive and in the moment. A mass of social interactions and the (perceived) expectation to create a ‘wonderful Christmas’ often lead to stress and frustration. Keeping Christmas simple and meaningful will make your holidays feel like a blessing, not a burden! #happychristmas #christmaspositivity #christmasjoy #familyisagift

My 2-year old daughter knows how to pray 🙏😘
How did we start teaching her? We always pray in the car and before we eat. We usually lead the prayers. But few days ago, she said--- 'Meeee, Giane'. So she led the prayer 'Angel of God'. We were surprised. 😲🤗 and at the same time, we are proud 💕
.
We pray that we raise her in a Catholic way and to be a God-loving woman. 😇
This was taken while @imetanoia is in the Philippines and before we slept. ❤️🧡💛 Missing Daddy so much 😍

I thank the Lord for I was born by his purpose and for his purpose. Thank you for this family Lord! I love you fam 😘❤️ 🙏

Our families are our first fraternity, it is the community of brothers and sisters that are bonded by blood ties and that grows to accept and cares for each other. Are they the best Christmas gift to you?

You will have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they’ll be older than they were today. Today is a gift. Just breathe, notice, study their faces and feet. Pay attention. Listen intently. Put your devices down and give them your full attention. Relish the gift of being present. Enjoy today with all its highs and lows. You’ll blink and they’ll be out of the house before you know it. #intentionalparenting .

Another birthday celebration for Luke. Tomorrow is technically his 5th birthday but he’s been begging to go to this LEGO Store at downtown Disney every time we come to Disneyland so that’s our activity for the evening. Chillin at the LEGO store!

I just love my family unconditionally, without them I wouldn’t know the real meaning of what unconditional love means, what kind of trust, loyalty and respect one deserves. They helped me grow into a well rounded, knowledge and caring person. I wouldn’t know where I’d be without their support and I cannot thank them enough. #familyiseverything #familyislove #familyisagift #disneyland #disneyfamily #disneychristmas #charlottesbirthdaysurprisee
Christmas lights! I love ❤️ going to look at Christmas 🎄 lights! So fun. This was from the harbor in Dana point last night. Super cool!

My family is my everything! 
I’m so lucky to have the best mother in the world all my life. She supports me even if I do not believe in myself, she is always next to me even if we are far away physically from each other, she made our childhood memories so bright and I will never forget it! She was doing everything for us, for our family! 
I could not stress enough, you should appreciate what you had/have.

I’m so grateful that my mother decided to have 2 children and I have the best friend in the whole world, my sister!  In the childhood I always had someone with whom to play/fight/laugh. When we became teenagers, I always had a girlfriend to go out and even if somebody was drunk, we always could care of each other. 😉

Here is the words from my heart, just wanted to share it, because my family is such a sweet, cosy, supported that I always miss them.

Luckily enough, my husband is also the best husband, so it is not a coincidence that we are together ☺️🙏 #loveiseverything #familyisagift #familygoals #lovemyfamily #familygirl #familywoman #fam #happiness #appreciationpost #momentum2018 #lifeisgood

Morning reflection. I seem to be doing a lot of that lately!
.
Enjoyed breakfast while listening to my old, new favorite CD again.  This was a gift from my MOPS group years ago.  The girls and I loved it. It was something I listened to over and over again the Christmas Kate was diagnosed with her kidney disease. I have kept it packed away until now.  I had this strong  feeling over the weekend to get it out again and I seem to be processing a lot right now. .
Not really sure of the point of this post but one thing I know is that I am a completely different person then I was the last time I listened to this.  I’ve been rebuild, I’ve grown, and I’ve changed.
.
So this morning I simply enjoyed my coffee, the  music and this festive cranberry oatmeal I made in my crock pot last night. ❤️

#mcm throwback to the day I made the best decision of my life. Sometimes the external parts of our life together aren’t always what we imagined they would look like but I wouldn’t change a thing. @black_beddy

Autoportret rodzinny vol.5 🖤🖤🖤 Stało się! Nie wiem co mam Wam powiedzieć! Prawdę? Ja królowa matka dnia wczorajszego, a raczej nocy popadłam w melancholię! Poprosiłam więc męża swego, króla Sebixa Pierwszego o pomoc! Bowiem ów mężczyzna, inżynier łeb ma nie od parady! Mówię więc doń: „ Kochanie zbuduj mi proszę machinę, co czas na chwilę zatrzyma” 
A on mi na to z rozżaleniem, iż umiejętności takich ( choćby chciał) niestety nie posiada!  I tak to wszystko mnie królową zasmuciło, iż zasnąć do pierwszej w nocy nie mogłam! 
Czy Wy szlachcianki, matki polki moje kochane też macie wrażenie, że czas szaleńczo szybko ucieka?

Seriously, how lucky are we @moekringle ??? Being a parent isn’t for everyone. I also completely understand that not everyone who wants to be a parent has the ability to be one. I know how lucky we are. Jeff and I often ask each other what we did before kids. We don’t remember. This life isn’t easy but it’s ours. My hope is that one day, everyone who wants this life is able to achieve it. #dyepartyoffive #ridye #skydye #piedye #riskypie #familyisagift #imagiver #ilovemykids #family #theyaretotalywatchingamovie @smallfootmovie

“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” Earl Nightingale

I’ve been a little quiet on social media lately and it’s because I’m truly taking this time of the year to soak up time with my family and create memories.

If you don’t already know I suffer from anxiety. .
Late last night I had a PTSD attack.  I know what was going on and I knew exactly what triggered it.  I could feel myself slipping and somewhere along the way I got angry at it.  I’ve been working really hard on myself and my mindset and decided I wasn’t going down. Going back to what I’ve learned I know I can choose my focus.
.
I immediately started reminding myself where I was and what was true and looked up ways to break the cycle. .
Movement is one.  It grounds us in the present moment, breaks into our bodies stress response, and releases endorphins that actually change our state of mind.
.
So on what was going to be a rest day I got my butt to the basement and pressed play.  I’m still working on breaking out of this but I’m slowly feeling myself start to come back.
.
Some may thing that this lifestyle and workouts are purely about vanity but for me it’s never been about that.
.
For me it’s been a way to fight for myself.  And that’s exactly what I did today.

Going back to what I’ve learned I know I can choose my focus. . I immediately started reminding myself where I was and what was true and looked up ways to break the cycle. . Movement is one. It grounds us in the present moment, breaks into our bodies stress response, and releases endorphins that actually change our state of mind. . So on what was going to be a rest day I got my butt to the basement and pressed play. I’m still working on breaking out of this but I’m slowly feeling myself start to come back. . Some may thing that this lifestyle and workouts are purely about vanity but for me it’s never been about that. . For me it’s been a way to fight for myself. And that’s exactly what I did today.
One of my favorite sayings that I being reminding of today.  I find this so true not just in fitness but in life.  It will never get easier but the challenges we grow through will always bring strength.

The last two weeks in our house have been rough. It's not just one thing that makes it feel that way. It's the "snowball effect" of everything all together. God has put so many amazing friends and family in my path along the way that have spoken wisdom and truth to me. Their compassion and empathy have given me hope that together we can change things.
.
I know this is somewhat vague (and that's not usually my style), but this wisdom can apply to us all. We can change the world with one child, one person, one act of kindness, one instance of speaking up when everyone else is quiet. We can change the world, for good, one day at a time. .
It's an uphill battle most times. It takes perserverance. But it is SO worth it. So, no matter your challenges today, I want to encourage you that when you stay the course, you change the world. .

Ketika kamu tidak bisa memilih untuk dilahirkan menjadi keluarga dari suku,ras,bangsa,dan agama yang kamu inginkan,percayalah bahwa keluarga yang saat ini kamu miliki adalah yang terbaik menurut-NYA,karna hanya keluarga lah tempat kamu kembali,ketika diluar sana banyak yg tidak menginginkan kamu dan hanya keluarga lah yang akan tetap menerima kamu dengan segala kekurangan yg ada di dirimu

There is a universal desire for unity among the families - it is the call be the "home" and the need to build it beyond the house that we are living in. Is your family your home?

After 3 kids it’s not often we get to dance the night away. My feet hurt and it’s going to be two hours past my bedtime by the time I get home but i forget how much we NEED nights like this. Nights where we remember what it was like when it was just us. ❤️ @black_beddy

It was an unfortunate event that brought us back to Dallas this month, but luckily we got a reminder that this time of year is full of cheer. #familyisagift #christmas #cookietime #sheissocrazy #shegetsitfromherkk
My little photo bomber is home today with a sore throat and snuck in just as I was taking this pic.  I will gladly take the extra snuggles. ❤️❤️❤️
.
We are going to spend the afternoon baking a fun treat and watching a Christmas movie. 🎄Maybe even a little online Christmas shopping.  Is anyone done with their shopping yet?
.
This morning I got a few  things added to my VIP info group for our newest program.
.
I’ve been doing these programs for over 2 years now and love that each new launch gives me another tool to help my clients reach their health and fitness goals.
.
I’m pretty excited that this one involves a stepper and gives us busy moms a way to transform our body’s and mind in 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week.
.
Who’s ready to start feeling better in 2019?
.
We will be doing this together with an amazing community and coaching from me. You in?
