Happy Birthday Mom!

I just finished talking to my mom on the phone. She called after opening the gift John and I sent her. John actaully deserves most of the credit for picking it out.

Mom and I were catching up on some things, and she said something that struck me. "The important thing is not to give up; it just may take longer." You do not even need to take the comment in the context of our conversation. You can apply that advice to so many things in life.

I'll add a couple of other Momisms that I remember from growing up:

"Actions speak louder than words."

"You can have it all but not all at once."

Have a good weekend everyone!

The first week of classes was busy at UTSA, but a little less crazy than this time last year. Some of the new university and office policies have helped make a smoother start of the year for our freshmen.

My mom and I were talking about her math class when she mentioned the importance of not giving up. My mom is so wise. :)
