Start your mornings off with the following, and your stress will melt away faster than snow on a 90 degree day — and without the mess.

Great breakfast, Monster Hug, and a laugh that keeps you laughing through the day.

Fast Paced Days

Fast paced days can seem overwhelming, but they can also be the days you accomplish the most.

Today is, the little chores that you need to accomplish in order to make the tours successful.
Laundry, hotel calls, making sure your school addresses are correct, maps and back-up routes, double and triple check sound system and stage needs. Finally, start working on the home so that when you come back it is not so stressful and you come back to what you want; not what you have to do.

Always Sitting, Always in Motion

Hugs — Mr. Cross is that you? — E-mails

Hugs — Mr. Cross is that you? — E-mails

So, it is difficult to speak at times, when it comes to younger kids (PreK-6.) Don't get me wrong they are hilariously funny and they can make your jaw drop with their insight. 

However, today, I was at a loss; I just felt like I was not getting to any of them until the end (question and answer time.) As I asked the group, "Does anyone have any questions?" This little boy, (4, 5 or 6 years old) stood up and before the teacher could whisper sit back down, he ran right up to me and gave me the biggest hug EVER! Okay, I got to one today. :-)

I get to my hotel in Bismarck, ND tonight and as I was getting out of my car I hear, "Mr. Cross, Aaron Cross, is that you?" I spun around and said, "Yes."

WOW, it's really you, I was at your school you spoke to three weeks ago, here, let me help you get into your hotel.

Sometimes, the greatest gift is to meet people you have reached.

In my room I open up my e-mail to find this;

"Dear Aaron Cross,Your presentation was very inspiring. You are brave, amazing, inspirational and cool. It was amazing watching you shoot the arrow with your teeth and your bronze medal was sweet! Most people do not get bronze medals. You are an inspirational athlete. We were surprised that you went skydiving, scuba-diving, and skiing. We think you should write a informational/motivational book for kids.

The Students of 4L"

Same school I thought I bombed today, I got a incredible memorable hug, and now a letter.

Hugs — Mr. Cross is that you? — E-mails, sometimes life is just AWESOME!
