Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Just a swingin'

Austin's new favorite pastime is swinging! He screams with excitement the entire time and just loves the thrill of going fast...something mommy has to get used to. He leaves his mouth wide open the entire time and then just starts screaming and laughing when he swings. Zach gets him going so fast I can't help myself and I have to grab the back of the swing and slow it down. I know, I am THAT mom but I just get so nervous something is gonna happen. Oh gosh, I need a chill pill. As I am typing this I am realizing what I prude I am. You should see me when Zach hangs Austin upside-down by his feel or when he plays roller coaster with him...I have to turn my head! I fear the day when I will have to watch him on a rope swing, climbing a tree or heaven forbid braving a massive water slide like his daddy did at 18 months.

Someone call a doctor, this momma needs Xanax.

Sydney just watched these videos with me and she thinks her future husband is very cute and she is ready to swing now!
