Tuesday, September 4

Hello!We had a fun morning!!  Mark and I were talking before the show about his wife, Tiff's, recent trip to the grocery store.   Her list was long, the store was busy and she came back less than thrilled about her 2-hour adventure.  I told Mark that what I do to "reward" myself for a successful shopping trip is to buy myself a small token of appreciation - lipstick, earrings, a magazine.  The self-gift is never large and usually under $5.  Well, this completely threw him off.  He had NO IDEA that this sort of reward system even existed and he challenged...

Today's postive thought from Compassion International founder Wes Stafford:  "Reward the effort, not the score.  Whenever children do their best, cheer!  Whenever they fail, pick them up!".Our thanks to Rhett Lashley from High School Sports the Magazine for sharing about the inspiring, positive stories in the new September issue.  If you are looking for something to do this weekend, here are a few ideas from this week's Family Fun Calendar:Washington County Fair – @ the fairgrounds in Fayetteville – ends at midnight on Saturday.  Midnight Madness is Friday Night – from midnight to 3am.  New this year – a tractor pull on Saturday...

Happy Thursday!!Just last week Dr. Joey told Mark and me that 60-70% of employees are not happy in their work environment.  We wanted to see if that statistic was true for Northwest Arkansas, as well!  After many wonderful calls, I'm starting to think that NWA might not have been included in the national poll!  :)  Mark and I had such a fun time this morning talking to nurses, teachers, a credit union employee, a McDonald's, Sonic and Starbucks employee, a dump truck driver, a mommy nanny and many Northwest Arkansas Moms who all LOVE their jobs!  Thank you for all of your...

Good Morning! I shared this Positive Thought around 6:20 a.m.  It was written by Charles Swindoll and is titled "Attitude"....."The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company ... a church ...

Good Tuesday Morning!Mark shared this "Positive Thought of the Day": "I believe that nothing that happens to me is meaningless, and that it is good for us all that it should be so, even if it runs counter to our own wishes.  As I see it, I'm here for some purpose, and I only hope I may fulfill it.  In the light of the great purpose all our privations and disappointment are trivial."  -Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)We talked this morning about life's seasons of disappointment, and how in the midst of those seasons it's often hard to find peace and purpose.  CS...

The first day of school...

We hope that this time has been a special time for you.  Perhaps filled with tears and maybe in some cases, even some cheers.  This morning Jen shared the following thought from the book "Hugs: to wrap around your heart"(page58-59):"While you've gone about the rigorous routines of motherhood, little eyes have watched and little minds and hearts have been shaped for eternity.  Your young pupils have learned of sacrificial love as they've seen you take the last and least so others can have more.  They've learned to distinguish right from wrong as they've observed your life of honesty and integrity. ...
