Cutest Nieces

I had to share the most recent videos of my girls!
Penny loves to blow bubbles.  I love this video of her and Adam.
Evie just learned to ride this little bike on her own.  Love the smiles at the end! :)

Muhammad Ali

I saw this on Facebook.  Not sure if it's true, but I thought it was a great metaphor.

An incident transpired when Muhammad Ali's daughters arrived at his home wearing clothes that were quite revealing.  Here's the story as told by one of his daughters:

"When we finally arrived, the chauffeur escorted my younger sister, Laila, and me up to my father's suite.  As usual, he was hiding behind the door waiting to scare us.  We exchanged many hugs and  kisses as we could possibly give in one day.
My father took a good look at us.  Then he sat me down on his lap and said something that I will never forget.  He looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Hana, everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to.
Where do you find diamonds?  Deep down in the ground, covered and protected.
Where do you find pearls?  Deep down down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell.
Where do you find gold?  Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock.  You've got to work hard to get them."
He looked at me with serious eyes.  "Your body is sacred.  You're far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too."
