These are five accomplishments I’m most proud of.
But first, let me just say I’m happy to be more than halfway through this series now. Adding in the digital scrapbooking element has really made it a challenge to complete, but a fun one. Erica finished designing the last of the graphics for the final week of this series. You can download here to decorate. They look like this:
I want to give her a big HUGE thank you for working these up and inspiring me to do something more with these prompts. It’ll really be a work of art I’m proud of once I get this all printed out.
Here’s the one I designed for Day 16.
Graduating college was a huge deal. My parents drilled in my tiny little head that I would go to college, so there was never a thought that I wouldn’t. I did, and I graduated, and I was the first in my family to do so.
I paid for all of my college tuition, books, room and board, (and then some) with scholarships. It was a lot of hard work applying, but it paid off (literally). One was the prestigious Ed Bradley broadcasting award.
I obtained a job doing what I love and literally, changing lives. One of my segments highlights foster children looking for families. Most of the children I meet and do stories on get adopted. Every time I hear about one of “my kids” getting adopted I am overjoyed.
I created a blog and taught myself more skills than I can count. From social media, to photography, to crafty DIYs I could share. I essentially created a business, and cultivated another calling.
I birthed, and am raising two of the most beautiful children. I already consider this an accomplishment, but once they’ve grown up, and I can see that they’re still just as beautiful on the inside and out, I’ll have achieved the greatest accomplishment I could hope for.
This was Day 16 of the installment of 30 Things my kids should know about me.
