My TEAM

Yesterday we had a tremendously fun day at the office. We celebrated Mother’s Day with a Mom and Kids day. We had cupcakes, carnations, cards for the moms and wanted to serve as many families as we could! It was a ton of fun and we helped more people than we ever had previously! I am so thankful for my wonderful team at the office, my chiropractic assistants are rock stars! The families we get to treat are THE best people in the world!

I am also thankful for the other members of my team: my family, dr stiles the radiologist I send all my X-rays to for another set of eyes to look in to (we found a fractured pelvis on a new patient and therefore helped her get into surgery. She had been living with the pain for 4 months and a hospital missed the fracture previously), the awesome group of docs o text and talk to daily to get our head and hearts pointed in the right direction, and I am thankful for my friends outside of the chiropractic realm who enrich my soul.

I am grateful!!

What a weekend!

I am so grateful for this past weekend! I had the unique and amazing to see Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk, and others at the National Achievers Conference in Denver on Thursday. It was wonderful and inspiring.

Friday Isaac had his 11th birthday party and we went to an Escape Room in Broomfield. It was a ton of fun! (And we escaped with less than 2 seconds to spare)!

On Saturday, we celebrated Mother’s Day as a family and with my mom and dad. We discovered a great new pizza place off South Pearl in Denver.

Sunday, we had soccer, flag football, relaxed a bit and then met Sheri’s parents for dinner at Anas Mexican Grill in Westminster.

I am so grateful for my family, my friends, my amazing wife, and my life!

My boys

Yesterday, Payton had his final 7th grade concert and he rocked! He was given two awards (one for the trumpet and one for maintaining first chair all year)

Last week Isaac went to regionals with his team for Battle of the Books! He and his team did amazing and I am so proud.

Perhaps the best though is a compliment from a patient of mine who lives in our neighborhood. Yesterday she told me “your boys are so polite and friendly. They are always respectful to adults and other children and it doesn’t go unnoticed. They are remarkable young men.”

I am so proud of my boys!

For my amazing co-workers

Today is “Administrative Professionals Day.” I’ve renamed it to suit what my amazing co-workers do.

Happy Administrators of postivity, joy, oxytocin, love and healing Day to Jessica and Kristel!

I am truly grateful and lucky to have you on my team!

Our patients are so thankful for them both, there isn’t a shift that goes by that I don’t hear at least one “they are so thoughtful” or “those ladies brighten my day!”

They help keep this ship running, and they allow us to follow our purpose with passion, to help as many people as we possibly can!

I am truly grateful for them both!

Communication

Communication is of VITAL importance in all relationships! Last night, Sheri and I spent some time (as we do quite often) just chatting and catching up about our day, communicating 1-1.

I love talking with Isaac in the earlier part of the morning while he is eating his breakfast, and I love talking with Payton later when he is eating and getting ready for his day.

At the office, we have open lines of communication between my staff and I. We use hand signals for non-verbal communication to better serve our patients as well, so there isn’t a lapse in what needs to be done for them.

There have been times I have let communication dwindle in my relationships and that NEVER turns out well, and I am so thankful for the people in my life that help ensure the communication lines are always open and flowing 🙂
