Black Belt Word of the Week - May 11th

Clean Up Your Room Day Was Yesterday!

I do expect that all our karate moms had the opportunity to be ‘spoiled’ yesterday by their karate family!
Holidays and special days like Mothers Day, as well know is an opportunity for each and every one of us to take some time out of our busy lives and reflect on what that person or people mean to us.
The adjective Thankful is "to feel pleased and feel a sense of relief” is theBlack Belt Word of the Week and spending the day honouring mom because you are pleased and relieved that she has been there for you is to have and attitude of gratitude.
 I Am Truly Thankful…
For The Bills I Get, Taxes I Pay, And Cheques I Write…
Because It Means I Am Employed.
For The Unexpected Notes, Emails, Or Phone Calls I Get From Teachers…
Because It Means My Children Are Getting An Education
For The Mess To Clean After A Party…
Because It Means I Have Been Surrounded By Friends.
For The Clothes That Fit A Little Too Snug…
Because It Means I Have Enough To Eat.
For My Shadow That Watches Me Work…
Because It Means I Am Out In The Sunshine
For A Lawn That Needs Mowing, Windows That Need Cleaning, And Gutters That Need Fixing…
Because It Means I Have A Home.
For All The Complaining I Hear About The Government…
Because It Means We Have Freedom Of Speech.
For The Parking Spot I Find At The Far End Of The Parking Lot…
Because It Means I Am Capable Of Walking And I Have Transportation.
For My Huge Heating Bill In The Winter…
Because It Means I Am Warm.
For The People At Karaoke Who Sings Off Key 
Because It Means I Can Hear.
For The  Huge Piles Of Laundry And Ironing I Have To Do…
Because It Means I Have Clothes To Wear And My Loved Ones Are Near
For The Honey Do List I Get Each Week…
Because It Lets Me Know I Have A Loving Caring Wife Who Only Wants The Best For Our Family
For Weariness And Sore Back At The End Of The Day…
Because It Means I Have Been Capable Of Working Hard.
For The Alarm That Goes Off Way Too Early In The Morning…
Because It Means I Am Alive. 
With all that life presents us we should always be reminded of how lucky we are to have the opportunity to have any good things and people as well as any challenges we are faced with.
Thank you,
Kyoshi
“I am thankful for the bumps and bruises, strains, and aching muscles I have because it means I’m as a martial artist I know I’m in the best shape of my life and I can protect myself” - Kyoshi
