Winter fun

Wesley goes running thru the house a week ago Friday morning waking me up...Mama! It is snowing outside! Can I go out to play? It normally takes me 20 minutes to get the kid dressed in the morning. Not that morning. He dresses himself in about 2 minutes! So off he went to play in the snow.

"The Installation of Love"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tech Support: Yes, how can I help you?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to
install Love. Can you guide me through the process?

Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready.
What do I do first?

Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

Tech Support: What programs are running?

Customer: Let's see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge
and Resentment running right now.

Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off?

Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me
how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.

Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is
that normal?

Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error
- Program not run on external components." What should I do?

Tech Support: Don't worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

Customer: So, what should I do?

Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.

Customer: Okay, done.

Tech Support: Now, copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files.
Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?

Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.

Customer: Thank you, God.

God/Tech Support: You're Welcome, Anytime.

Birthday Wishes!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Dear Kathy! Happy Birthday to you!
We miss you everyday! Wesley reminded me that it was almost Kathy's birthday about 3 weeks ago. I asked Wesley what he wanted to be for Halloween and he did not answer the question. He was quiet for a few seconds and then he said it is Kathy's birthday after Halloween and wanted to get her a present.
We decided to make her a card.





Jim, I hope you treated her real nice :)
And thank you Kathy for the Halloween card, Wes has asked me to read it to him at least twice now. It is hanging on our fridge next to the ghost he made at preschool by painting his foot white, stamping it on black paper and adding eyes. Too cute!

Halloween pictures to come soon! Hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween.
Love, Sabrina

Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time. From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with outreached hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.

Make it a Happy Journey

You can never have a happy ending at the end of an unhappy journey; it just doesn't work out that way. The way you're feeling, along the way, is the way you're continuing to pre-pave your journey, and it's the way it's going to continue to turn out until you do something about the way you are feeling.

What's Next?

There is nothing for you to go back and live over, or fix, or feel regret about now. Every part of your life has unfolded just right. And so --now -- knowing all that you know from where you now stand, now what do you want? The answers are now coming forth to you. Go forth in joy, and get on with it.

Friendship

"What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies". - Aristotle

Perhaps the one relation that has survived the trials and tribulations of time and has still remained unconditional is friendship. A unique blend of affection, loyalty, love, respect, trust and loads of fun is perhaps what describes the true meaning of friendship between two individuals. Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship. To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

They say a person who has found a faithful friend has found a priceless treasure.

There is no
greater blessing
than an
understanding
friend,
who's there in
times of trouble
and on whom we can depend.

A friend who knows our every mood
And brightens cloudy days,
One who's slow to criticize
But quick to offer praise.

There is no greater blessing
Than a friend who always cares,
One who will remember us
In daily thoughts and prayers.

Joy

Life is supposed to be fun. You said, "I'll go forth and choose. I'll look at the data, and I'll say, yes to this, and yes to this, and yes to this, and I'll paint a picture of the things that I want, and I'll vibrate about them, because that's what I'm giving my attention to. And the Universe will respond to my vibration. And then I'll stand in a new place where a whole new batch of yeses are available, and I'll say yes to this, and yes to this, and yes to this." You did not say, "I'll go forth and struggle into joy", because from your Nonphysical Perspective you know it is vibrationally not possible. You cannot struggle to joy. Struggle and joy are not on the same channel. You joy your way to joy. You laugh your way to success. It is through your joy that good things come.

Home Safe

Hello all.

We made it home safely late last night. Thanks to Jen for picking us at the airport. We pulled into our driveway at 2am this morning. Good to be home, I have missed my bed! Wesley's clock quickly reset to its usual time. He was up at 7am like always, thankfully we all were able to take a 3 hour nap this afternoon! Thank goodness for Saturdays! The weather is beautiful outside (a little cooler than we are use to, but nice). I will write quick cuz we are going on a walk soon.

Here is a we did on our last few days on vacation.

Lets see where did I leave off...

Tuesday was allot of fun at the Turtle Hospital. It was sad to see all of the injured Turtles but happy to learn that most of them will get better and be release back to the ocean. There were bubble butt turtles, these turtles have usually eaten something like plastic that was thrown into the ocean. The plastic then blocks them up and all of the sea shells they eat get trapped inside them and they fill up with gases. These gases get trapped under their shells and causes them to have a bubble inside that floats them to the top of the water. If they are not rescued this will eventually kill them. But at the turtle hospital they give them a laxative to pass the blockage and slowly the gases work there way out and the bubble moves to the back (this is why they call it bubble butt) and passes! If they are treated they will make a full recovery. We also saw several turtles that have only 3 flippers because they were hit by a boat or caught in fishing line that was thrown into the ocean. They adapt and are able to swim just fine with 3 flippers. When we were there there was several turtles that were going back to their homes in the ocean that week. It was a very fun and educational trip. Wesley loved it!

Wednesday we traveled to mile marker 0 and shopped all day in Key West. This island is the farthest (southern) most point in the US. Key West is a busy Island, the party town. It is full of things to do. We spent the day shopping on Dueval Street, walking the beach and docks, and we eat at the Hardrock Cafe (good food). This was probably our busiest day all week by far. I found a few things I just loved, Wesley found some cute toys and Adam had fun browsing in Jimmy Buffet's Margertia Ville. A very fun day. We were very tired we when got back to the condo after all of the walking.

Thursday we spent the whole day at the pool. I believe Wesley has officially turned into a fish! Lots of sun, lots of laughs and good food at the Tiki Bar. We needed this day of rest after yesterday! I finally got that sun burn today. I think the sunblock rubbed off my back while I was sitting in the pool chair cause the 20 minutes I layed there on stomach was enough. Ouch! I does not feel good. Well I guess I am broke in for summer now :)

Friday sadly we packed the car, said good by to our condo and headed to Miami. We spent the day in Miami and at the Miami Zoo. The zoo was really fun. All of the animals are so close. We saw elephants, bears, zebras, lions, many other animals.

Looking back it was a great vacation! We were able to just relax. I didn't think about work or worry about anything back home. And that does not happen often for me.

Watch for pictures to come soon!

Today to the Turtle Hospital

Hello!

We are having so much fun, where has the time gone?

Yesterday we visited the The Theatre of the Sea in Islandmorda and saw Sea Lion, Parrot and Dolphin shows. The shows were so up close and personal. And we watched the sharks being fed lunch. It was Awesome! We got great pictures we will post when we get home. Wesley bought a turtle egg and we have been waiting for it to hatch since yesterday. He checks it every time we return to the condo...no I haven't gone crazy...it is a plastic turtle that will hatch out!

It is a little cooler today, only 76 and breezy. We needed a day off from the sun. So far so good, no one is sunburned! That is a big accomplishment for us red heads!

Today we are off to the turtle hospital here in Marathon. There they rescue injured sea turtles and nurse them back to health in hopes to release them back to the ocean. Wesley is excited. I have to keep reminding them they are real turtles, not the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. JK! He laughs at me every time I saw that.

This vacation is turning out to be perfect! We are getting allot of sun, I have done allot of reading and relaxing on the pool chair and Wesley and Adam have swam in the pool everyday. They even did a late night swim yesterday.

Every night at our condo they have a sunset celebration. They blast a cannon right at sunset and then Wesley and I share a strawberry slush drink (dads has alcohol!). We sit on the hammock and watch the sunset. This has become our nightly ritual and I love it! If Wesley didn't miss Daisey so much we might just stay! Adam has checked the want ads a few times (as he always does when we go on vacation). He is convinced one day we will live in Florida.

Tonight there is going to be a pirate show at the poolside tiki bar at our condo. We are excited!

I will fill you in more later. Hope you all are well!

Love Sabrina

Made it Safely!

Hello Everyone from Sunny Florida!

We made it safely!

I want to give a Big THANK YOU to the Magnuson Boys for watching Ginger this week and to Faeth for watching Daisey. And another Big THANK YOU to Jen for Driving us to the Airport. You guys are the best, it is so nice to go and not have to worry about anything back home. So again THANK YOU!

It is beautiful here at our condo in Marathon Keys. The resort is fantastic, beautiful pool, tiki bar, dock and boats right here at the resort and the weather...sorry to rub it in but was 85 today!!

We had a nice flight and a nice drive. When we were flying over the Everglades to land in Miami Wesley said the funniest thing. All the people within an earshot chuckled. There was open water and vegetation in the Everglades. Wesley said Mom look the ice is cracking off the lakes. How cute is that! He has been such a trooper, we had a 3 1/2 hour flight and then a 4 hour drive and barely a wine out of him! Although mom had enough junk food and movies with to keep him busy. :)

Tomorrow we plan to spend a quiet day at the pool and maybe rent some waive runners, we will see how adventurous we are.

Wesley says HI to Grandma Laurie (MAMA T) and to Sawyer! And he misses Daisey.

Hope you all are doing well! I would to love hear about what is happening at home, blog with me! More soon...

Love
Adam, Sabrina & Wesley

Thank you so much to all of our Family and Friends that shared this special day with us. Wesley's 4th birthday party was Wild, Loud and FUN!
He has not stopped playing with all of his new toys and he can not decided what toy to bring to sharing time at preschool. I think he will even be sleeping with a few this week as he has not put them down.

Here some pictures of all of the fun.
