Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity. Choosing right over wrong, ethic over convenience, and truth over popularity ... these are choices that measure your life. Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

You should make an uh no jar like my cousin Letti has. Every time someone says they are bored, they have to pick something from the jar. It is full of little chores to do. Her blog is Happily Ever After off of my blog list. I am not looking forward to that stuff. It'll be okay if my babies stay babies forever as long as I don't age too. Haha.
