Reflecting on 36!

Reflections at 36!

As I watched the Presidential debate, I looked through my selfies from the last few years.  I could see in my face how I have grown and how I have come to reflect the gratitude I feel for all the wonderful things that have come to me.

I want to share some of them as we near the end of this my birthday week:

  • I am grateful for my two beautiful daughters.
  • I am grateful for my husband who is loyal and true beyond my wildest dreams because I never knew what loyalty really meant until now. (He is also very sexy.)
  • I am grateful for my life, period.  This earth is a beautiful place.
  • I am grateful for cats.  I have been through a lot of tough times with just a cat to get me through them.
  • I am grateful for my father who taught me to provide for my family and work hard.
  • I am grateful for my mind, even though it may sometimes make me crazy and overly obsessive.  I am so grateful for what my mind brings to the vision inside my head before anyone else can see it, like a sneak preview of coming attractions just for me.
  • I am grateful for a great professor who let me know that just because I had a child didn’t mean I should give up my dreams.  (I got my highest degree in 2009 when my inspirational baby was only nine!)
  • I am grateful for all the people who have been fake and hateful to me who inspired me to push on regardless and fight for what I want.
  • I am grateful for difficult times as they taught me that I have the strength to survive on my own.
  • I am grateful to have learned that the best company I keep is sometimes myself.
  • I am grateful to my body for putting put up with my own neglect for years.
  • I am grateful for moments that cannot be replaced like the happiness I find with my children and husband.
  • I am so grateful to see the smile when I tell my youngest daughter that we are going to the farm, or to gymnastics class.
  • I am grateful to have the vision to allow things to unfold as they should and to have a team to execute it.
  • I am grateful to have found people in my life who know where I come from and know where I am going.
  • I am grateful for Halloween.  It is by far the best holiday. I can give out tons of candy. My father Passed away on Halloween, October 31, 2014. I believe he chose the day for me!
  • I am grateful to live in enough abundance that I can continue to give back.
  • I am grateful that I have found freedom from myself and my own insecurities, freeing all those around me from them as well.
  • I am grateful for Netflix. Otherwise I would never see what everyone has been enjoying for the last decade on TV while I have been out being a workaholic.
  • I am grateful for people who attempt to expose me for what I am.  I am 100% OK with that.

  • I am grateful I can forgive, while never forgetting.
