I was recently asked to explain why I am Thankful. That is a really loaded question. I really do not have anything not to be thankful for. I learned a long time ago that every minute counts and with every action you should think of the reaction. I know that being thankful isn’t as important as setting an example. I know that being a good person helps me to be a better wife and mother. I know that if you look at a problem long enough there is a solution. I am not afraid of the work it will take to achieve a resolution.
Who am I?
I am also someone who keeps my word and doesn’t back down when challenged but I am smart enough to listen to the other side. I am thankful that I grew up loved. I am equally thankful that I married the right person and have a wonderful family. I am thankful that my daughter puts on my lipstick even when it is all over her face. I am thankful that my oldest will hug me when no one is looking. I am even thankful when I am woken up with “Mommy, I need you because it is cuddle time.”Yes, it is 5:00 am.
I am thankful that I inspire others to see themselves in a way they never consider. I am a dream builder and not a dream crusher. I am someone who treats others the way I would want to be treated. I am honest and open and most likely too much of both. I am thankful that I am not bothered by my flaws because they aren’t important. i I am thankful that I can do a lot with a little as $100. I am thankful that I am comfortable just being me. I know that is enough.
