30 days of thankfulness: epic fail

So as I knew it would happen (sad I know) I failed at the 30 days of thankfulness. Not that I don't have 30 + things to be thankful for this month has been crazy busy! I've had a few late days at work and 3rd grade homework has kept me busy.

So to finish my 30 days of thankfulness I'd like to add that I'm thankful for all of my family, my friends, my job, my home and my health. I'm thankful I'm able to get out of bed and tend to my child and fiance's needs. I'm thankful I'm able to help with the bills and can help put food on our table for 3 meals a day. I love my life and I thank the lord for everyday he gives me.

Hope you all have a great day! Bundle up because its cold out there...brrrr!

30 days of thankfulness days 5,6,7&8

Wow. I have a lot to catch up on!
Day 5 today I am thankful for my sister Melissa. She is not only my sister but truly my greatest friend! Even though we didn't see much of each other in our really younger days when we reached middle school her and I became best friends. We were attached at the hip ( as some would say). I am thankful for her patience to deal with a son with special needs. I love that we talk on the phone everyday and can reminisce about things from the past and discuss what's going on in the present and dream of our futures. Just like we are little girls again. Thank you sister for always listening to me! I love you to the moon and back!

Day 6 I am thankful for my little sister Julie. Even though times are tough for her she still walks around everyday with her head held high. Im thankful she has become stronger and is willing to take on life. We have different goals and aspects in life but I'm glad she is my sister. I'm glad she calls me when she needs advice. It makes me feel honored that she has that much faith in me to give her the right answers. I pray for her daily and hope the good lord looks over her and her babies. I love you Julie and am glad you are trying to get your life back.

Day 7 I am thankful for my 3 brothers. They have always been there for me when I needed them. I don't see them as often as I like but we live miles apart. It sucks actually. But I do love them with all my heart!

Day 8 I am thankful for all of my nieces and nephews. I love to hear the words aunt cathy come out of their mouths. I live them all like my very own. Michael, Blake, Hunter, Austin, Alice, Robbie, and Canyen aunt cathy loves you more than words can explain! Xoxoxo to all of you :)

Happy Friday to you all and I hope you all have a great weekend!

30 days of thankfulness days 3 & 4

Day 3: today I am thankful for my mother. She may not have had the best experience at being a mother but she did her best with what we had. There was 6 of us kids so we weren't spoiled by all means. My mom worked two jobs do bus kids would have 3 meals. She has taught me how to not be selfish in life SBD enjoy what you have. Even though we live miles away we talk daily. I just wish we could see her a little more than we do. I love you mom. Thank you for doing ALL you could do for me.

Day 4: today I am thankful for my dad. He doesn't have very good health right now but I'm thankful he is alive. Even though we don't have the father daughter bond that I wish we did he is still my father. He was a big alcoholic when we were growing up so there's some hatred there. He did stop drinking years ago and I'm forever greatful that he did because we lived a horrible nightmare with him when he drank. I wish I would've given him more of a chance but I didn't. We live miles and miles away (he is in Florida and I'm in Indiana) he is still my dad. I love you dad. Thank you dad for making me realize the type of man i want in my life. I chose a great daddy for your granddaughter. Thank you for giving up your bad habits. I pray everyday for your health. Safe travels to you for your holiday travels coming home. Your granddaughter and I can't wait to see you! I love you!

30 days of thankfulness days 1&2

Day 1: I am thankful for my daughter Kelsie Jo. She is such a joy. She is very independent which sometimes makes me sad. I hate the fact that she doesn't always need me...she is a pleasant young gal. Beautiful inside and out.

Day 2: I am thankful for my fiancé Jeff. I love this man more and more each day. We have been together for 10 years. It hasn't been a perfect 10 years but through it all we have not given up. We are getting married in 1 year and I couldn't be more happier. I have pictured what our life will be like in the next ten years and I can't wait! He is truly my best friend and I wouldn't trade him for anything. I love my little family :)

Cowgirl style!

Today was a little cloudy and chilly but Kelsie was determined she wanted pictures taken of her! She grabbed her grandpas guitar and some cowgirl boots, a cowgirl hat and off to the tracks we went!

How is it possible?



This is our niece Kalle. I'm still trying to gather in my heard how in the world it's possible that this little girl I once knew is an 18 yr old senior? She had her 18th birthday just this past week and in a few months will be graduating High School. Makes me super sad. I remember after moving up here with Jeff that Kalle would call every other weekend and want to come spend the night. She was 8 (Kelsies age :( ) when I moved up here. Hard to believe she is going to be going off to college. I cried the day we went to take pictures of her and her date for her first prom, I bawled when she got her license and I'm not really sure how I'm going to handle graduation day and the day we move her to University of Findlay.
Oh Kalle, we are so proud of you sweetheart. You are a fun, energetic, caring, loving and beautiful young lady!
