    Expect It

    What do you expect to gain from reading this message? What do you expect to accomplish today? What do you expect to get done in the next hour? How responsible do you expect your children to be? How courteous do you expect the ticket agent will be to you?


    Your expectations largely define your outcomes. You rarely ever do much better than you expect to do, and you rarely ever do much worse. Most often, you get just about exactly what you expect.


    Even when circumstances change, you adjust your actions so that your expectations continue to be met. Whatever you expect of yourself will happen, because you'll do anything necessary to make it happen. Your mind is a powerful goal-seeking device. The more consistently you keep your mind on your positive expectations, the faster they will become a reality.


    In your expectations there is great power. You can expect whatever you choose to expect. So expect the best. And that's what you'll get.

    This is Rex Barker with a very cute story ...



    We had this great 10 year old cat named Jack who just recently died. Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day long on this mat in our bathroom. Well, we have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years old, 3 years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loves chap stick. LOVES IT. He kept asking to use my chap stick and then losing it. So finally one day I showed him where in the bathroom I keep my chap stick and how he could use it whenever he wanted to but he needed to put it right back in the drawer when he was done.


    Last year on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush, trying to get everyone in the car with all sorts of crying and carrying on. My two boys are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to nurse my little one at the same time as I am putting on my make-up. Everything is a mess and everyone has long ......... that this is a wonderful day to honor me and the amazing job that is motherhood. We finally have the older one and the baby loaded in the car and I am looking for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally round the corner to go into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying my chap stick very carefully to Jack's rear end. Eli looked right into my eyes and said "chapped." Now if you have a cat, you know that he is right--their little butts do look pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't seem to mind. And the only question to really ask at that point was whether it was the FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind or the hundredth.


    And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it reminds us that no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little creatures, there will always be that day when you realize they've been using your chap stick on the cat's butt.


    This is Rex Barker reminding you to never underestimate the creativity of your little ones . . . or of yourself.

    An Apple a Day




    Do you remember that old expression, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away?" It's true, you know!


    Eating fruit every day gives you vitamins, minerals and fiber – all good for your body – muscles, organs, and digestion. It also gives you sugars (fructose), less than in desserts or candy, but still very sweet and satisfying.


    If your body is well nourished, and fruit plays an important role in the overall healthy eating schematic, then you need to visit the doctor less – and only for preventative care, not for being sick so much!

    "Be well, do good work, and keep in touch."
