Jon: “Pizza. Once a month me and the boys have pizza night where we make fresh pizza in the house. This time the boys didn’t put peanut butter and jelly on theirs, and we had the flour flying and all sorts of toppings and that’s what makes my life rich.”
Dawn: “Communicating with my husband. We’re communicating so much more about money now and that’s opened our eyes about what needs to change for our retirement. We’re not there yet, but we are making progress.”Michelle: “I’m practicing gratitude for the food in my house and for my paycheck. I normally go to the grocery store every two weeks, but since my girls are at their grandparent’s this week, there’s still plenty of food in house!”Joy: “Football. And football season. And football games.”Carl: “I got to play a show last night at a new place in town called Avocados on the Square, and the whole experience was pretty rich. All my friends came out to hear me play, and that’s one of the things that enriches my life.”Chris: “I was burning the candle at both ends – eating fast food, smoking, not exercising, – and I ended up with a blockage in my heart. I changed a little bit then, but not enough. Found myself a few months later with 3 stints and seven blockages, and I called my friend from the hospital and he introduced me to this Average Joe’s Boot Camp. I started camp at the end of February over a year ago, and it has changed my life. I went off all my medications, dropped 55 pounds, and this morning I ran four miles and did 300 crunches.”Joy: “My husband makes my life rich every day. Running your own business is extremely time consuming, and he’s been so supportive, and not only that, he’s a great dad. One of the best there is. Right up there with my own dad.”Anna: “Surprisingly, I’ve not missed my smart phone or the channels we cancelled on Dish. As a result, we’ve been able to save money for a new, small AC unit for which we paid cash. Yay! Otherwise, we would have been sweating all month.”Dr. Bill: “Networking makes my life rich. When I started my business back in 1997, I made the mistake a lot of people do in thinking I could do it all on my own. What I found out is that the success we’re going to enjoy in our professional life is going to come from other people. When I realized this was going to be the avenue to prosperity, I started embracing it and ended up doing very well.”Jodi: “I have been incredibly blessed to be the coach of the Johnson High School Odyssey of the Mind team. We got second place at state which has advanced us up to the world finals. We had to raise $10,000 to get there, and there have been obstacles, but we are so excited about this great opportunity.”Jon: “Storm tracker radar. We had a tornado last night and my two kids had their bicycle helmets on and were ready to go down to the basement. And I thought, isn’t it great how with the technology, you can hone in and find out if the storm is headed toward your town or even your street? Technology is one of those things that continues to evolve and make my life rich.”David: “Being with my family and friends and my good health makes my life rich.”Tanya: “One thing that shines out is my son with special needs, Conner Mathew. He has really brightened our world, and opened up a lot of blessings. We’ve met so many amazing people with Miracle League and Special Olympics. We see the need to keep him involved and make him feel he has a purpose, and his joy has really spread to others. It also pushes us to be more involved outwardly. Conner really makes you think about what’s important.”
