We all get caught up in getting up and ready for work each and every day, right?
The children up and ready for school and/or babysitter, right?
Family is what life is all about so when did our lives get so busy?
We somehow allowed family moments to get sucked into the whirlwind of hectic schedules with like crazy tornadoes nearly dwindle away. So, James & I decided...NO, let's take a step back and reasses life. We are in MAJOR need to take a breath and enjoy our precious blessing we are so proud of OUR FAMILY!!
Early to rise The Bejarano's were on Saturday morning....
We're out the door minutes after 4 on the road to "enjoying our happiness"
Laughing at the little snores in the back, listening the small breaths right before Nathaniel & Isabel awoke in their carseats...hoping for OPEN IMAGINATIONS from all of us with all the wonderful animals God provided for us to use our great senses. What a gift!
We entered the zoo and they could have been happy watching the ducks and turtles out front for hours although it was like their eyes grew to size of baseballs seeing each and every animal. WOW!! Amazement and it was a wonderful experience. We couldn't have been happier. We were there when it opened until 2:30ish...Imagine hearing the sounds from all the people around us, the animals surrounding us, feeling the happiness throughout, touching the fences, tasting the air, seeing all the amazing opportunity within the Zoo in front of us, WOWZA~~
They had a wonderful time and Isabel walked most of the time being right alongside brother... wanting to push the stroller with nothing but her lil' singing doggy in it. FUN, FUN...What a moment it was for James & I with the children. Very relaxed and amazed to see OUR CHILDREN enjoying the little things in life... still amazed that we are so bless with two healthy growing children. THANK YOU GOD!! each and every spare moment we think it silently I believe...
They napped well of course, ate great and shall be shooting in the sky with some more inches I do believe. We made it a fun weekend staying at the Matazal Casino Hotel which was open, spacious, relaxing and what fun to just hang out. The little moments in life make LARGE STEPPING STONES THRU LIFE with memories for a lifetime!

I am a partner, a Team Leader for The Pampered Chef, a young girl, a goofball& a grown woman. I am confident and scared, terrified and excited. I am loving and caring, and thoughtful, andhopeful. I am sick and tired. I am shy and friendlyand, careful and careless. I am broken and whole. I am misunderstood, misguided, and mislead. I am hard working and determined, but a little scared on the inside. I wish on stars and dream my dreams. Ipray to God and cry my tears. I listen to others who won't listen to me. I walk on eggshells, and I walk on fire. I believe in passion and true love. I am everything and nothing all at once and I all I want is for those that I love to be safe always!
Footprints in the Sand!
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way, however I noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there was only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most you would leave me."
The Lord replied, "my precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

The Road Not Taken...
The Road Not Taken by: Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the tother, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy ans wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by And that has made all the difference.
