Monday Management

Monday Management…………Well for this week it is easy.  Enjoy the holiday,  remember the amazing heros who do it daily to protect our freedom, unplug from work, let go of the crackberry, and take time to remember our families who so often are forgotten because of the pressure of work everyday.

Thank you Lord for this amazing life you have given us, the time that you watch over us and direct us, and we thank you for guiding our leaders and heros each day.  Amen!!!

Our Anniversary Spotlight

WOW!!! Today is our 5 year anniversary…….Thank you Christina for putting up with me for so long and loving me!!!!

When you reflect on the past 5 years there are so many things that you could put in the spotlight and say wow that was the moment but I can't narrow it down to one moment over another.

In a marriage it is so easy to get caught up in the day to day grind you forget how wonderful your spouse is and how much you count on them for everything.  Christina is my best friend, my love, my partner in crime, glue to our family, wonderful mother, and more than anything a hero in my eyes.

Christina is the most wonderful, caring, loving, and free spirited person I have ever been around and I am blessed to be married to her.  Thank you for making the everlasting decision to walk along side of me as a partner in life.  I am excited about the wonderful future we have ahead of us and I love you!

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's day is an amazing day to celebrate the person that holds the family together.  Without an amazing wife and mother where would our families be.  The saying is very true behind every guy is a better woman.

Ten years ago this year I celebrated my last mother's day with my mom, Sherri Burchette, who was my rock and inspiration growing up.  She stood next to me in all my ups and downs and never doubted me one time.  I remember that last mother's day like it was yesterday.  She was in the early stages of her battle with cancer and she wanted to spend the weekend at her favorite home away from home and just cook out.  We did and had a great time!  It is crazy how time goes by so quick.  Mom I miss you so much and I wish you could be here to see our family.  I am blessed to have an amazing wife who is an extraordinary mother to our one year old son Malachi.  I remember times where Christina had doubt that she would be a good mother, well in the first year she has put those doubts to bed by being an awesome mom!  Mom she is as strong as you, as independent as you, and as compassionate as you.  You would be so proud of Christina!

To my mom, Sherri, and my wife, Christina……Happy Mother's Day and Thank you for all you do!!
