A 100 yrs from now…

Missy said it best as she quoted Forest E. Witcraft — “A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” 😍. 

This day really made my heart so happy…I’ve teared up a few times and again this photo just took me back through 25+ years of memories

This picture is THE. BEST. I love the personalities in it…the humor…the LOVE!!
Today we surprised my Mom with a ‘Barbara Day’. 

Months a year ago I made a #ThankfulThursday post expressing my THANKS for my Mom and all Day Care providers.  

I spoke of how I grew up in a day care basically as my mom ran her Certified Day Care out of our home. It was life to me. Friends everyday growing up and then as I was older the kids became like younger siblings (that I never actually had since I’m the youngest in my family). I started working with my Mom 3 years ago and it was a huge eye opener of how much of job it is! My Mom has done Day Care for over 30 years–over 100 kids walked in our home. 

My dear friend Missy and my siblings got together and wanted to surprise her with a ‘Barbara Day’, as some of the kids used to say (on the days they weren’t even going there anymore) “I need a Barbara Day”. 

We kept this surprise for weeks and she had NO clue…we reached out to everyone we had contact to and we were so honored to have people “send their memories” if they couldn’t come, along with those who came, sharing their memories, photos, the crafts they still had that they did (& their kids did as she has had generations come through her day care), and just spend a “Barbara Day” with her. 

She was so surprised and really did feel appreciated and that’s exactly what we wanted for her!!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
