Thankful Day 24

I love thanksgiving. It’s hard to feel bad on this day. This is the second year I have changed up our traditions and it still feels a bit weird it is a good change.
Marcelina and I ran a 5k, she did awesome. Little did I know sister was coming down with a sore throat and would later have a fever. We made it home in time to watch Santa cross over Herald Square and then on to a nice afternoon with yummy food and great family.
My sweet superstar, starting to feel icky.
“I do not recal asking for that kiss”

Apparently he thought the prayer went to long.
My little lady all snuggled up in her blanket nest.
We are thankful and full, hope the same is true for you.

Thankfulness Day’s 18,19,20,21,22

aka- wow I keep falling behind but I really am thankful each day.
Thankful for cousins. Growing up (and now) I truly had the best, real cream of the crop. I am excited to see my kids have a fun relationship with theirs. Three are in Florida but when we are together it’s is really like no time passed.
Thankful my buddy has one of his best buddies home.
So thankful for a fun race day. We all did our best and went home feeling proud and stong.
Marcelina will be doing her first 5k with me Thursday morning and I am pretty excited to share this with her.
So super duper thankful that 38 years ago a little baby boy was born in a land far far away (ok fine not that far) and that he would grow to be my prince.
Thankful that my lady feels so confident in her new glasses…..
…and that sometimes she is just as crazy as her “weird mommy”

Thankfulness Days 15, 16 & 17

I am so thankful for MOPS. 10 years of great teaching, encouragement, friendships and understanding.

I was watching these leaves hang on even though the wind was doing all it could to get them to let go.


1. steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.
2.Theology . continuance in a state of grace to the end, leading to eternal salvation

I am thankful for all the stuff that has helped me to learn (and continue to learn) perseverance.

So thankful for the reader she has become.  
She caught me!

Thankfulness Day 11

Man my brain has been mush and I forgot to post this again. Of course this does not mean I did not spend my day thinking how grateful I am.
We live in an amazing country. It’s not perfect but it is amazing. We are free to believe what we want, to disagree with what we want without fear. We have so many freedoms and it is so easy for me to forget not one of them was free. Men and woman have fought since the forming of this country for each and every one. These outstanding people don’t think they are outstanding, they just do their jobs because it needs to be done. They sacrifice so much for me……I am humbled.
There needs to be a better way to say how much this means, thank you seems so small.
P.S. To my girlfriends who also share in this huge job by supporting, loving and doing the job you need to do please know you are never ever far from my thoughts or prayers.
Thank you to all of our Hero’s
Ruth 2:12

May the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge, reward you fully for what you have done.  (NLT)

Thankfulness Day 10

oops forgot to post this yesterday.
I am thankful for sisters. They are our best friends and at times worst enemies. They have the power to break our hearts and then mend them up. My girls are learning so much from each other. This relationship is precious and I am so glad they have each other and I am so blessed to have two little sisters of my very own.
