When I saw today’s SITS GIRLS blogging challenge of creating a list of what I am thankful for I got excited. However when it came to creating my list it was more difficult. I am thankful for so much but I was able to narrow it down to 10. Enjoy!
Of course my family tops the list. I couldn’t survive without them. It is expanding in November with the arrival of my granddaughter. EmploymentAfter facing unemployment in 2010 for 18 months, I am most grateful to have a wonderful job. My company treats employees well and is such a fun place. Reading and Writing
This of course goes along with my blog. I am thankful that I get to write some amazing content and read things from even more amazing writers. I have met some amazing writers and I still meet more every week! I am so lucky.
Lipstick and Jewelry
Since becoming a blogger I have been so much more brave with my lipstick colors. If you know me, you know my favorite color is red. Hello, it is freaking HOT when a woman wears a pretty lipstick. I collect fashion jewelry and I am always expanding my collection. I am trying to partner up with some talented jewelry makers right now.
If it weren’t for technology I would not be a blogger or writing this post now. My phone and iPad are an appendage to by body. I feel lost without either one of them. Technology allows me to make new friends and stay connected with friends and family.
I have a 2 year old miniature Yorkshire terrier, Bandit and a 10 year old house cat named Snickers. My pets make me laugh and lift my spirits. My pets don’t judge me or gossip about me. All they ask is that I feed and care for them.
I make mistakes and if it weren’t for forgiveness I would be one lonely girl. Thanks to all those who have forgiven me.
Coffee is my sidekick. I am thankful that I have so many varieties to chose from .
I don’t have many but I love the ones I have. They help keep me sane. I love that we can just pick up where we left off.
Silence in my house allows me to reset and clear my mind. It helps keep me moving forward. I am thankful that something so simple can be so easy to obtain.
For today’s Throwback Thursday we are going back to 1993. Please forgive the blurriness of this photo at it is 21 years old. I did have some nice skin back then though!
I was 18, married, and had just had my first daughter, Meghann Cynthia. We were living in Bakersfield, CA and in the same apartment complex as my ex’s parents and sister. I had no idea how to be mother more than I knew how to be a wife. Thankfully, my mother in-law helped every single day so much that we say she raised Meghann. I was happy to be a mother but wanted my mom with me.
My daughter is going to have her daughter in November and I am so thankful that she isn’t moving away from me. I wouldn’t be able to stand it. I can now imagine the pain I put my mom through when I moved 3000 miles away from her and took her first grandchild.
