Peace Maker

Today was the 1st awards assembly of the year and Isaiah was given an award for "Peace maker." Since his 3rd grade year didn't start out so smoothly (let's just say, 4th day in and a trip to the principal's office...nothing serious but not the greatest way to start...) I am extra proud that he has been able to turn it around!

Thoughts

When I worked at the jail I had this really cool saying that hung on the wall in my office. Since then I have looked everywhere under the sun (in boxes) to find it to no avail. Found it on my flash drive today. It is now hanging in my current office.

Watch your thoughts...they become your words
Watch your words...they become your actions
Watch you actions...they become your habits
Watch your habits...they become your character
Watch your character...It becomes your destiny
