Motivational Monday Week 8

Motivational Monday Week 8
We cannot solve problems with the same thinking that created the problem.
We must change the way we think.
-Mary Marx ... adaptation from Einstein

Sometimes changing the way you think is asking someone else for help.
Together you can figure out the right answer to the math problem.

Motivational Monday Week 7

Motivational Monday, Week 7
Whatever comes from the heart carries the heat and color of its birthplace.
-Oliver Wendall Holmes Sr.
I'm not entirely sure what this quote was intended to mean.
I even Googled it but didn't come up with anything.
I kept coming back to the thought
that is was a symbol of something coming from the heart.

Our wedding rings are a constant reminder our pledge of love
and vows we made on our wedding day.

Project 52, Motivational Monday, Week 6
After a storm comes a calm.
-Matthew Henry
We had got a fresh layer of snow last week.
I went out in the morning to take a few pictures of the calm...

before the 2nd "storm".
I love when the kids will go outside and play in the snow.
As much as I love the look of a fresh snow fall,
the peacefulness of it,
the feeling of the calm it brings,
I'd way rather have a yard torn up by the kids enjoying the snow.

Motivational Monday, Week 5

Project 52, Motivational Monday, Week 5
Probably he who never made a mistake, never made a discovery.
-Samuel Smiles
I kept mulling over this quote in my mind and always came back to
this precious little boy as I watch him discover new things.
I suppose the argument could be made that as he learns new things,
such as rolling over,
it's more of an instinct, not a mistake.
But as I watch him accidently roll over, I can see his little mind working 
as he figures out how he got there and he tries to do it again.

(Maybe I'm just looking for an excuse to post a picture of this perfect little face!)
I'm linking up to Marcy this month.
