'Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.' ~Albert Einstein

Lots of things spinning in my head tonight.
4.4.11I can't edit anything right now on my computer unless I use iphoto.

4.8.11

I am not in love with iphoto.
I am not even in like with iphoto.

4.5.11

Kaish and I are going to watch the Secret Millionaire.
Gary is working.
Surprise.

4.7.11

Someday I would like to be on Secret Millionaire and give money away.


2.25.11

First I would have to actually make money.
Do you think I can become good at business?

2.7.11

I am doubtful.
Gary is hopeful.
He doesn't think a social work salary is cutting it : )
I think it is perfect.

12.6.10 Today I love Grandmas!


Kaish has no opinion about my success.
He has only an opinion about his hunger status.
He is starving.
12.7.10 Today I am so thankful for my little boy who makes me laugh.
Hope your Sunday was all sorts of fantastic!

Fantastic Sunday here! I am feeling sorry for you about iPhoto. On the bright side, it works ;)! I love your happy photos! Glad you share them!

Great photos you have!
"Someday I would like to be on Secret Millionaire and give money away." - I feel you! Wouldn't it be great to have more money than you need and help people?! I think it'd be great!

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

I do think you could be good at business! You can be good at anything you put your heart into. ♥ I would so love to be a millionaire and be able to help people with it. Wouldn't that be amazing!

Jade said...

If your accomplishments with your regular interviews are any indication, I think you could be great at a business: creating a vision of something of value, planning, executing it, etc. If this is something you really want to do, maybe you might just take stock of what you think your strengths are and seek help with things you're less strong in or prefer not to do. Whatever you decide, you have a wonderful family who exude happiness, and I wish you the best of luck!

I think you can succeed at ANYTHING you want...and being successful means nothing compared to happiness. :)
I hope he gets a nice dinner...enjoy the show.

If you ever feel that you secretly need to give away piles and piles of money, I'll let you know where I live.

;)

Angela@the crazyness that is me said...

Love your photos today. Imagine giving away money - oh what an amazing feeling that would be. Thank you for your prayers for my dad. He is doing amazingly well. We are thankful everyday :)

Teresa @ Be Our Guest Vacations said...

LOL!! What fun!! :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Looking forward to getting to know lots of PSMM! :-)

Ellie said...

I'm pretty sure you could make some money being an inspirational comedian. and Kaishon could be your sidekick. what with the spoons almost up his nose and all :)

Thanks for making my heart happy - you always do!

I love your pictures, and I love how funny Kaishon is.
Today we had a guest preacher. He works for the International Justice Mission (they strive to help the oppressed and free slaves around the world, they are lawyers and social workers and other professionals who have devoted their time to this incredible task). The message was about what God asks of us...the answer? To love justice, to help the poor, to take care of orphans and widows. I think that you are in the most successful of businesses. May your heart stay strong to the task. What you do, I think and am coming to think even more so, is one of the very most importantest jobs in the world. Blessings as you begin your week!

BeckeyZ said...

Love your photos and the way you "think". You don't need no stinkin' editing anyhow - your pics look fantastic just like they are.

My Sunday WAS fantastic! Late in getting my citar out, but it's still Sunday, so I guess it still counts.

Buckeroomama said...

I don't think we get Secret Millionaire here... we might, but I don't watch TV much, so I wouldn't know. I would love to be a "secret" millionaire. Emphasis on secret. I would love to give oodles and oodles of money away, but I don't want people to know where it came from. I would love to be a fairy godmother. =)

Go feed Kaish! I want to see his cheeks all chubby in your photos. :)

Veronica Lee said...

Awesome shots as always!! No editing needed!! Kaishon is so adorably funny!

Have a nice day!

Dita said...

You ARE the secret millionaire....you so freely and generously offer
Encouragement and love empowering people daily whether they be in your real world or your virtual world.

Kaish, you are gorgeous. Keep being you, Gorgeous Boy!!!

Coming by from SIMC Linky Party - - - my first week to join the fun.

Some "paychecks" have far more value than simply earthly dollars. Yours is one of those.

I know - - - I empathise - - - I taught for 11 years in small Christian school.

Maddy said...

What you give to the world with your words, smile, photos and BIG heart is more than money can buy, Becky! You're amazing!

Formerly known as Frau said...

I thought last nights Secret Millionaire was by far the most generous and touching. I love that show! I hope Kaish tummy was well feed...boys are bottomless pits of hunger! I would love someday to have money to give away like that.Have a beautiful Monday!

Allison Hoffman said...

I always love your blog - it always brings a smile to my face!

Farmgirl Paints said...

i know...can you imagine anything more fun than blessing people and changing their lives for good. i would love to be able to do that financially. it would be awesome!

loved your last comment girlie. you never know when i'll just end up on YOUR doorstep..seriously it could happen;)

Sharon said...

Oh what an incredibly handsome boy you have there in that last picture! I sometimes daydream about winning the lottery, and the first thing I do is create a list in my head of all of the people I would give money to. That would be so cool! I need a larger sum though because I always run out!

Grandma J said...

You are already successful and popular!!! I feel rich having you for a friend.
I love you guys.

Tracy P. said...

Seriously, I am picturing you taking that carwash photo and going, "Where is she and how did she come up with that?" You get pictures no one would think of. If you WANT to go into business, you would make money. You would do great and have clients who are thrilled!. But listen to yourself--you would want to give away your work. Because, Miss Becky, everyone you meet turns into a friend or family in 2.768589 seconds, and you would want to give the 89% friends and family discount to every one of them. You will know you are ready to go into business when you have enough resolve to actually charge the people you photograph, and pretty much STOP giving away your work. But until then, the photos you give away are YOUR version of Secret Millionaire. I adore your sideways girls, your hungry boy and your confident husband. And YOU!

But BOO that iphoto is not your friend. :-(

Nessa said...

love this quote and the last picture is hilarious... feed that poor child! :)

Bombchell said...

I love this post :)

Tracy P. said...

P.S. You could think of it that if you went into the photog business as your paid job, you could do social work as your Secret Millionaire give away service. Because we all know you WOULD. And DO.

panamamama said...

:) So cute! I don't know what Secret Millionaire is but it sounds fun.

The Blonde Duck said...

If I was a secret millionaire, I'd stay secret and live annoymous gifts for people.

Team Lando said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I LOVE that last photo!

happygirl said...

Wow, thanks for stopping by my blog. Really, Thanks. I've never seen Secret Millionaire, so I don't know what it is. I thought you meant you would be on the show and I got super excited because I thought you might be a millionaire and you FOUND me. Hahaha. I like your pictures. Come on back to my Happy blog anytime.

Kathryn said...

Great photos no matter what editing software you use! I love the last photo, I have boys and I so 'get' that one!

shelley said...

I think being a secret millionaire would be the best thing... EVER!

Let's dream of being secret millionaires together. I played lotto last night, so perhaps I should see if I won. That would be a good start! x

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

I totally believe in you 100%, my friend. So, yes! You can do it.

Victoria said...

Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my vacation blog... which I rarely pay attention to! I just discovered today that there was a comment waiting to be moderated ... from you ... from March 29th!

So I've spent the past 20 minutes poking around on your blog... enjoying the images and the stories!

I'll no doubt be back for a longer look but wanted to definitely make sure to let you know that your comment was not ignored completely!

I too am not in love with iPhoto... in fact... and am now using Lightroom instead! I love the sideways image of the two young women with long, flowing hair!

septembermom said...

Wouldn't it be cool to be a secret millionaire? Kaish is like my son Joe when it comes to food apparently. Great pictures :)

Unknown Mami said...

You are good at business, it just depends on what kind of business you are talking about.

Amy said...

Fun post!

Love the picture of the girls and the long hair.

grace said...

I loved your quote and how much better off we would all be if we followed that advise. I always enjoy coming here for a visit to see all your wonderful photos.

Liz said...

Great pictures!

Wow... iPhoto is my favorite thing about my Mac. But I am not into editing so maybe to someone who edits it's different.

Donna said...

I'd love to be a secret millionaire too! I try not to watch too much of that show.. it's such a tear jerker!
