Thank you for coming in my life when you did. Although you were not planned, you’ve brought a wonderful balance to my life. You’ve reminded me not to take myself so seriously.

For the last seven years I’ve been a workaholic. But these past seven months, I’ve had wonderful adventures with you one on one and with your boys. We had a blast laughing through two weekends at the beach house, taking the boys to the corn maze, golfing Flowing Lake, Saturday eve in Ellensburg, camping in Skykomish with friends, camping in Leavensworth with boys {where they were touched by nature}.

You are one of the most accepting people I know. You look past my flaws and accept me for me. Although in many ways you are incredible unreliable, I still feel a sense of stability with you.

Thank you for so many photo ops. I think I may have made up for being non-photogenic as a child. We look good together 🙂

gratitude, the new attitude {day 4}

November is a time for thanks and, like so many, I am participating in the 30 day challenge.

day 4: My health

3 years ago I developed god awful, please put me out of my misery {if you love me}, not sure if I’m going to pass out or puke PAINS.

After going through numerous tests over weeks, I was finally diagnosed with gallstones. Although I knew nothing about gallstones, nor did I know the remedy, I remember crying my eyes out to the technical who preformed the ultrasound. I was so happy and relived to finally know what was wrong with me.

After another five weeks waiting on the surgeon’s schedule, 1.5 hours surgery and $18,000.00 in medical bills; I was cured with no side affects and no problems to this day. Today I have a clean bill of health and for that I am grateful.

gratitude, the new attitude {day 3}

November is a time for thanks and, like so many, I am participating in the 30 day challenge.

day 3: Sister

Thank you for being my big OLDER sister. Although for some reason everyone thinks you’re my little sister and if I hear one more time that you’re my younger sister; we are going to have some problems!

Thank you for all the ice breaking inappropriate things you say and thank you for not saying them in my presence {I would be mortified}. But love hearing about them after the fact. Like the time the surgeon came out of my abdominal surgery to let the family know I was ok and when you saw him coming you said “boob job, how’d it go?”

Thank you for getting it together to try to give me the birthday I never had, even through my non-cooperation. I know this upcoming weekend’s “Marcelina’s 30 B-day Extravaganza” {19 weeks past my real b-day} will be fabulous!

Thank you for having two beautiful kidos so that I can practice when I’ve always been too scared. I now have more confidence in myself as a mother because of you.

gratitude, the new attitude {day 2}

November is a time for thanks and, like so many, I am participating in the 30 day challenge.

day 2: “Some people come into your life as blessings and others come into your life as lessons.” I’m grateful for the all people who have come (and even left) my life.

I’ve been blessed to have so many magnificent, and not so magnificent, people come in my life.

No-name, thanks for coming into my life when I was very young and treating me like shit. This truly showed me a lifestyle that I will not, and have not since then, choose for myself. I’m worth so much more; enough said.

Austin, thanks for coming into my life and turning my passion for horses into a horse crazied, rodeo chasing, barrel racing, team roping, all-around cowgirl {yes I won this title back in high school} for nearly a decade. This was very empower time in my life, which showed me the depth of my drive, as well as, my physical and emotional strength.

Anthony, thanks for coming into my life and encouraging me to take the college placement test during my sophomore year of high school. Because of you, I was one of the few who attending college during high school.

Sammy, thanks for coming into my life and reminding me of my passion for music {not to be confused for me being in love with you}, after numerous conversations of late nights and bright lights. Your multifaceted talents can take you places but only if you get of your own way. {Thank you for reminding me to get out of my own way}

Rog, thanks for giving me the opportunity to preform with numerous platinum award winning artist. Without you, I may have never had that chance. This was a once in a life time opportunity and I’m so happy that I had the strength to step up to the plate. P.S. Thanks for calling me a triple threat: “Brains, Beauty and Big Balls”, I took it as a compliment.

gratitude, the new attitude {day 1}

November is a time for thanks and, like so many, I am going to start the 30 day challenge.

day 1: “Friends are the family we choose.” I’m grateful for my close friends.
The ones who know my flaws and choose to look past them to see the real me {vivacious, tranquil, spit-fire, composed}. The ones who are honest with me and tell me what I need to hear, not necessarily what I want to hear. The ones who believe in me, when I don’t believe in myself. The ones who are full of encouragement, when I feel like there’s no hope. The ones who challenge me, to be a better me.

Heather L, Kendra , Heather C and Erin; thank you all for being my close friends. I am a better person because you are in my life.

Love is…

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Corinthians 13; 4-7
