Reality Check

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
 It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. 
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
~Melody Beattie
In the name of gratitude and truthfulness I’ve decided to post a little piece of reality here once a week. Likely just a single picture.

Joining Rachel this week with a reality check of our own...this time in photo and video form. 

We recently bought an old slot machine  from a friend, just for kicks.  and put it down in the rec room.
I'm afraid though that the children are having all together too much fun with it.  I was hoping that they'd learn how gambling really works, and how the odds of winning are rather slim.

And then I found this video  that they took on my camera....


  1. Holy seizure inducing video! Jackpot!! haha, I don't know if they're catching on to the evils of gambling... ;)

    1. We did notice that we can't let her see the thing turned on anywhere near bed seriously makes her hyper! She won't sleep!

  2. Bwahahahahaha! You totally get that bad mother award this week! *wink*

    1. No kidding. We were just talking about our recent bout of bad parenting. First it was the slot machine...and then I let my dad take them to a firing range...(they just watched that though.haha)
