Thought for Thursday

Don't SWEAT the SMALL Stuff

We all have been told this saying and it sounds so easy, but come on really it is not always so easy!
Lately I have been having some mood issues, which I think have to do with health issues, which is a whole other post, but wow even without that sometimes the small stuff sure can A+D+D=UP!
And then make YOU BLOW UP!  
I hate looking back on it at the end of the day and thinking, "Wow that really was nothing!  I lost my temper over something so silly!"

If things go wrong, don't go with them.  ~Roger Babson

SO for today I am going to try to NOT SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF! Why do I not want to sweat the small stuff because of these two beautiful faces-
I don't want to be remembered as the mean mom, but as the fun loving mom who didn't

Drag your thoughts away from your troubles... by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.  ~Mark Twain

Big ♥

 I have a Big Heart! Ok maybe this isn't the correct title, but I do have a big heart for somethings in life.  In life I have been burned many times, you all know what I am talking about, those people who you open your heart up to and then IT happens!  Trust me I could write a blog itself of the things that have happened in the past to my husband and I (he has a bigger heart than me and still trusts everyone!)It has made me leery to open myself up to people, don't get me wrong I still have great friends it just takes me a little bit really open up to people.  
But back to this post, I do have an ENORMOUS heart for something and that is.......
Thank goodness we finally moved to a farm a 1 1/2 ago, so I can get some animals to be apart of our family. I like to blame it on the kids or my husband when we get something new, but I love them all and since usually I am the one who takes care of them, they each do have a piece of my heart!

Let me introduce you to the brood:

Shadow our Old Dog

Bryan the Loud Dog

Stuie the Fish, Santa brought him!

Our bucket calves JP and Lucky!

16 Hens a few have names, like Red Feather and Henny Penny.

8  baby chicks, a few of these also have names, but they change!

Our newest dog Tuff! He is not tough at all but the people that had him named him that and he is a great dog!

Our hamster Stella, careful she bites!

Don't let NO stop you!

The simple word NO!  It can be very scary, but why it is just a word, don't let the word NO stop you from something you really want! Don't let it stop your motivation!

Spring brings branding calves and lots of work!

Spring brings the start of mowing again! Our yard is HUGE, so some days it can be difficult!

I love productive mornings, it makes my whole day better!
 I am working on school work and the business, in between blogging! : )
 Dishes all clean and an empty clean sink!
 Clean stove!
 Washer empty, all clothes are clean and in the dryer! Don't mind the mess on top of the dryer.  Oh and I obviously didn't check every pocket because there is Kleenex on the clothes but hey we will deal with that when they come out of the dryer.
 The bed is made and we have a smiley kid!
 Fire is going!
Max and Ruby are on!!

And all of this by 8:53 AM! YEAH!  

Disclaimer: Yes this is not a normal day for Mommy J, but thought I should share because it doesn't happen often.  Plus I can show my husband proof!

The SUN is shining here today!
Yes this isn't a view that I get to see, but wouldn't it be nice! I do get to see the sun, I think it is the 3rd or 4th day in a row of nice temperatures, 50s! We have been having frigidly cold weather, windchill of -30 below, so seeing the sun, makes us smile around here. Even though the wind is blowing, but hey I think I can live with that!
