"Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it."

— Mary Oliver

"Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can."

—Dalai Lama

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to all!!!!!

Macy made this for Mira's wall and it makes me smile!!!!

We carved pumpkins tonight as a family......lots of fun....I hope you enjoy the pictures and enjoy the quote below.
Happy Halloween!!!

“I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much; my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold onto it. And then it flows through me like rain, and I can’t feel anything but gratitude—for every single moment of my stupid, little life. "
- Quote from American Beauty of my favorite movies!!!

“Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see. Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it's been.”

Prayer of Saint Francis: Spiritual Music


“Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
~Steve Jobs

Where I Am From

Where I'm From
By Macy Kuhar

I am from a family of five
From Organic food and tie-dye

I am from the brick house with a bright orange garage door and shutters
(Eccentric, unusual, but warmly comforting)

I'm from the cherry trees and tomato plants, and the swampy lake out back
(Us being the only ones to receive the swampy part)
From the yellow daffodils in the front yard
(Blooming bright in the spring)

I am from camping trips and bright blue eyes
From Mark and Michele

I'm from dance shoes and creative ideas
From "why fit in when you can stand out?"
And "what's meant to be will always find its way"

From a family who believes that love is their religion and the world is their church
A family that tells me there is a piece of god in everyone

I'm from Medina, Ohio, and Shorewood Drive
From Serbia and Germany, spaghetti dinners and ice cream cones

I am from grandparents who live six doors down
From my dog and two cats
From my little brother and big sister

I am from the pictures above the fireplace and the memory boxes in the closet

I'm from a family that's anything but ordinary

My parents
For giving me a good and safe home to grow up in and teaching me so many life lessons

Grandma and Grandpa
For always being there when I needed them and showing me that true love does last a lifetime

For being a good role model, someone for me to look up to, and making mistakes that I learned a lesson from

For always keeping me a little kid at heart

Miss Emily, Miss Melissa, and Miss Jessica
for teaching me to be strong, disciplined, and determined, both on and off the dance floor

Cassie and Alyssa
For being my best friends from the start and showing me what true friendship is

Emily and AnnaMarie
For helping me get through my middle school years, basically being my twins in life, and always providing me with a good laugh when I needed one

Jessie and Ash
For randomly showing up in my life andbeing the cutest cats anyone could ever ask for

Fenn and Claggett
For giving me a good education, even when I dreaded going

September-December 2009
For making me stronger as a person and showing me that time heals anything

Family Dinners
For keeping my family close, when I could see others falling apart

For being the friend I could always count on to make me smile no matter what

for being the highlight of my summer ever since I can remember

May I......

Marko learned how to make animals out of towels on our cruise. He is getting pretty good at it.
I hope you enjoy the words below!!!

May I see the things in front of me as they are, not as I think them to be. May I walk the steps ahead of me one at a time, not wondering if there's a map. May I say the things that fix things, not break them further apart. May I do what I need to do, not be distracted by what I can't. May I dream of what I hope for, not of what I fear.

These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):

1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don't hit people.
4. Put thngs back where you found them.
6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
9. Flush.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first workd you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.
— Robert Fulghum
