What I am grateful for
I have been incredibly blessed in my life. I want to take a moment to say thanks for all I have been given.
The people in my life:
Amazing parents! I can’t imagine a better set of parents. I even knew I was lucky when I was a teen-ager, even though I may not have agreed with them, I knew they were incredible, loving, supportive parents.
My brothers and Sister: I was blessed with a “normal” family of crazy teasing, fun and a whole lot of laughter! It was a great way to grow up in a house filled with love.
My husband: you have made me a better person. I love you.
My children: who may make me crazy on a daily basis. But they are incredible, loving, loyal children. I am proud of the people they are growing into.
Friends: the people who know too much about me, but still want to be my friend. Thank you!!!
The adventures in my life I have taken amazing trips and had some fun adventures. I have visited a few countries and am working on visiting all 50 states. I know I am blessed to be able to travel and I hope I am becoming a better person with each adventure.
Education: The ability to have attended college and receive a degree. I know, as a woman, this isn’t always a possibility, so I am grateful my parents pushed me to complete my degree.
Career: I have worked for amazing organizations and become a better worker and person because of who/where I worked. To be able to work with for an organization which promotes work life balance. I have worked with bright, hardworking people who strive to make our community better. I am also grateful for the ability to create something new. It is an amazing time of ups and downs. Hoping I can pay forward all I have learned in a meaningful way in the future.
The stuff: well I am lucky to have a home and a cottage. I also have more “stuff” than I should and am working on not accumulating more stuff, but have more adventures instead.
For everyone I am immensely grateful for you in my life. I deeply appreciate the opportunities I have been given and will work hard on not squandering the blessings I have been given in my life.
