red...


... well the last of the grandparents have left for a bit and i am left with a spoiled Noah. sigh. seriously, the grandparents need to show some of the strict discipline that david and i grew up with to this kid. but i guess noah is their reward for raising us so they are livin' large...
david was telling me he took a personality test at work today which rated you by color. david came out as a green - sensitive and caring. i asked him what color he thought i was - he said red and i think he is right - here is the red motto: "be brief, be bright, be gone" - i laughed when i heard that b/c i am that way a lot...
but with the blessings of MR, i have also become a better person i think. i have left a career that had me competing and climb a ladder that forced me to dehumanize a lot of relationships. MR allows me to be generous. to support things i believe in. to drive the ship how i want to. i think in this year david and i (and deb and the other david too) have experienced many blessings. from the birth of our babies to the success of MR, i truly believe that what you give, you will receive. those who are generous from the heart will receive it back 10 fold. we see it. we believe it. we live it.
actually we were laughing the other day about how "thrifty" a company we are - we do try to operate lean and mean (trust me you would laugh if you saw how cheap we are) - but that allows us to be generous in ways we want. to support things we believe in. we truly are blessed - all of us. so think about what you are blessed with - b/c you are blessed so you can bless others... that is the way it goes and the more you give, the more you get in return.

Seriously, how can you spoil a 1 month old baby???? ;) Besides, isn't that their job now? That's what I was told by mine even though they do kind of discipline Hayley. Great family picture!

That is a great family photo. And you are definitly a generous person, just from the RAKs that you give out, for one! Plus I think you have to be sort of generous just to have a baby - generous with your time and energy!

What is it with grandparents and spoiling the grandkids?? Too funny! I totally agree with what you say about generosity. Wholeheartedly believe it and try to operate my life that way.

You ARE a very generous person - and fantastic business woman! I am constantly amazed at all you accomplish! And good luck un-spoiling the baby! I spoiled my niece when she was uber small - and haven't been able to stop since!

I believe in the same philosophy - the more you give, the more you get! I am amazed at all that you accomplish, with such a little one! Good luck at CHA - looking foward to seeing all the new stuff!
