Attitude of Gratitude

A List of Five (things for which I feel grateful)
  • My fantastic children. They are all so unique and each is so wonderful! Amanda, Ryan, Kaitlyn, Alex and Quincy: I want you each to know how very PROUD I am of you and I truly am glad that I get to be YOUR mom!
  • My man is back in the United States again after his third tour in Iraq. Rob: I am so very proud of you, too! You have made so many sacrifices not only for us, but for people you don't even know...and for people who don't even appreciate it. That is a BIG deal to me!
  • ABUNDANCE. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends, and family members...
  • My creativity.
  • This absolutely LOVELY green August we've had. Thank you, God for the moisture and the beautiful, green grass!
Tonight, Amanda and I had a lot of fun playing with make-up. Alter, Kaitlyn and I had fun playing with fantastic shoes. Kait suggested I take a few snaps of us. I pulled out my cell phone and snapped a few photos in the bathroom mirror. This was my favorite. I just had to share it here...with you.
