Words cannot express how thankful I am to be able to do the things I love and get paid for it. Not to mention most recently–Continue to do them from home.
I was a little girl when I decided I wanted to be a news reporter and some day… an anchor. My parents pushed me to go for it and never give up on my dream. And so I did. Then, when I turned in my notice a few months ago to spend more time with my kids, I worried my career could be over, but the opposite has proved true. Lately I feel like I’ve “been there done that” and I’m excited as my career is evolving.
It’s been a long and crazy ride with several ups and downs, but I’m so thankful for my job(s) and for the opportunity I have to pursue my dreams with my kids along side me.
Nothing like good friends you can text any time about anything, call when you need a last minute favor, or pick up where you left off even after months, weeks, or years without talking.
I’m so thankful for my many friendships. I don’t know what I’d do without my buddies.
This is me with two of my best friends: Allisa and Brittani, taken by another best friend: Taylor.
I an truly thankful for the power of prayer. Whether for comfort, guidance, forgiveness, or assistance; prayer is something I can’t live without. I can physically feel a difference in my life when I’m praying constantly, or when I’m lacking, and the more I pray, the closer I feel to my Father in Heaven, and the clearer everything seems.I’m trying to teach my children about its power and blessing. My prayers are answered constantly, and I am grateful to have that speed-dial connection with Him.
I may be going out on a limb here but…
Me + sparkling cider + 9pm = Gratitude.
Now that I get less time to myself I don’t take it for granted.
My husband is hunky, my kids are cool, but the time between them going to bed and him coming home is what helps me keep it together. When many women would be sitting down for a glass of wine, I have my fake wine. It may just be a placebo effect but whatever, it does the trick.
So whether curling up with a good book or watching some Scandal, when you’re a busy woman, a few moments alone every once in a while is something to be thankful for.
Can I get an amen?
#Thirtythankfuls #4: My Pup Snoop.
Truth is, he’s kinda been just in the background lately. But I’m thankful for him, because despite my neglect, and his severe fall from grace, he’s still the most loving, sweet dog I’ve ever met. By far the best dog I’ve ever had in my entire life, and I’m grateful for him.Big T has just “woken up” to notice him more lately and I know they will just be all over each other once he starts crawling. He already strains to get close to him when he sees him, and Snoop is the gentlest with both kids, despite occasional tugging, squeezes, and horseplay.
Even though I don’t pay him as much attention as I used to, he still gives me a “puppy pedicure” when I get home and licks my feet and toes.–You may find that disgusting but it’s really quite delightful.
Snoop, my first baby and last dog… I love you!
