I love these “Van Sessions” – makes me wish I had some musical talent. Check out the surprise instrument toward the end of the song. It is my kids’ favorite part! Love the unique sound….

A video of my 2 and 3 year old kids on Christmas Morning

25 12 2011

Some days I cannot even believe how blessed I am to live the life I’m living. Most days actually.

I’ve had an emotional day. I guess Christmas morning is always emotional on some level, but watching this video and replaying this moment makes me tear up again and again. Why am I so blessed to have two healthy and amazing little boys? Their innocence humbles me in a heartbeat.

I also had a scare today with a close family member – health issues that could be life changing -maybe even life ending. I am keenly aware that life can stop on a dime. I’ve been through that with my dad already; a heart attack in the middle of the night, no time to say good bye. But rather than stifling me, I am trying take every moment in and appreciate it for what it is.

I recently read a book where the heroine discovers the true joy of every day; upon opening her eyes in the morning she thinks, “I’m awake! Thank God!” I want that for the rest of my days – to give thanks to the Lord for being awake and to experience the true joy of life. This morning was a great morning to wake up; this morning I felt the true joy of Christmas.

In this season of being thankful, working at Avenue Mortgage with president, David Pendley, is at the top of this list. They say you spend 75% of your time either being at work or thinking about work…  I truly feel blessed to spend so much of my time at a company where words like INTEGRITY and COURAGE are not just talked about, they are lived. I am honored to be a part of the Avenue Team!
