Day 30

There are so many things that I am thankful for this morning that I don't even know where to begin.  First and foremost - I'm thankful my son is OK.  Two - I'm thankful I'm OK. Three - I'm thankful for emergency vets when puppies get into medicines that make them sick & that they were able to put my sweet Coco out of any pain and suffering she was experiencing.

 I am thankful to have my house back this morning.  The sun comes up today and I will face these next challenges with a strong heart and mind knowing that I WILL BE OK.  WE will be OK.  Tanner and I have so many great supports for us, and I am so thankful for those that are in my inner circle and here for us to lean on.  I Pray that, and have faith, that justice will prevail and all is going to be OK.

Day 29

Today I am thankful for my sister.  She was like a second Mom to me when we were little, toting me around here and there, helping me and always being a motherly hen taking care of me.  Even though we are six years a part, we've had a special relationship.  Not perfect or what I want as far as the "dream sister relationships" you see in movies or Hallmark cards, but she's a keeper!  
Happy Birthday Helen!

Day 28

I am thankful that what we do to our hair is not permanent!  I have decided that I really don't like my hair dark and am going to get blonde back in there!  My natural brown is OK b/c it's not this dark, but I   am not crazy about my hair this dark...Tanner even said he doesn't like it & he's not usually so vocal about stuff like.  So...I'll be calling up the salon to get in there & get this changed back up!

Day 27

Today I am SO THANKFUL for a warm home!  It is super cold outside this morning!  My legs felt half frozen from the few minutes I was outside with the puppy going potty this morning when she woke me up at 4:30!  BRRRR...

Day 26

Today I am thankful for my Scentsy business! I'm not making millions, and I still have to work a full time job, but I am very thankful to my Scentsy business for the extra money that I am able to make! It helped me buy some groceries this week! While money is very tight for me right now, my Scentsy business was able to help me generate a little bit of money from my cash & carry products on hand!

So, rather than helping big business's this Christmas, help little people like me who have these business's to help us make some extra money for our families!  I don't care if it's Pampered Chef, Premiere Jewlery or any other home based businss...just help the small companies this Christmas rather than going to Kohls or Target...believe me, it means way more to us than the corporate giants!

Day 24 & 25

Day 24...Well, missed a couple days...Saturday was day 24 & I was thankful to have a lazy weekend in which I was able to take my time putting up the decorations and just relax as I wanted!  Watched a movie, took a nap, got the 2nd Christmas tree was a good day!  I am missing that day today!   

Day 25...I am thankful that I got another nice nap in, had a relaxing day once again, but I did manage to be a little productive!  I had pinkie promised Tanner I would have his Geo Tracks put together by the time he got home Sunday night! I went into the basement to get it done!  I was impressed with myself and the finished product!  He was thrilled when he got home!

Day 23

Today I am thankful for all my wonderful Christmas decorations!  Just LOVE the decorations, lights, everything about this part of the Holiday season!  So many fun times to be had with Tanner & all the great movies that we love!  Today has been a rough day & I usually have just about everything DONE by this time and I don't yet have one tree done!  OH off to a bad start with the first tree, but it's all good!  It'll pick up in the morning when I wake up, it's all out of the attic & I can just focus and enjoy since Tanner is at his Dad's for the weekend.  I won't be stopping to help my little sweets with anything.  Love him, but boy he stops me a gazillion times when I'm working on a project it seems.

Day 22

I am thankful for the magic of Christmas and Tanner for his child's imagination!  Skippy made his big return to our house this morning!  It was an Elf's breakfast and a child's dream!  Powdered donuts, candy canes, cookies, chocolate kiss's & cocoa!  (I am on sugar overload from cocoa, 2 donuts & a candycane myself)!

Day 21

I am thankful for my health, and that Tanner is healthy. Nothing is guaranteed and things can change at anytime, you have nothing to say about it.  So live, love, and enjoy each day to the fullest!  Don't hold grudges and never miss an opportunity to tell someone how much they mean to you!  (even if you don't agree with everything they are doing...)

Day 20

I am so thankful that people are leaving me alone.  It seems that they have finally found their own stuff to get involved in and are leaving me alone.  We all have our own path in life and are livin' um ourselves...I've got mine, you got yours so go attend to it. I have realized that I should not be putting so much out there about my life as others feel that this gives them the right to comment and ask about every aspect.  I've always been an open book, but not more...Privacy walls have come up.

Love ya Skippy!  Friends for life...
