Emotional Thank You

Hello there my lovlies. Hope your week has been a good one.

So as I am sitting down to gather my thoughts on what I am thankful for I get a notification I have been tagged on my Blog FB page.

So I read…

I cry…

I am truly thankful for all the people that have crossed my path over the years…

…in real life…

and in the cyber world.

On the home front I am thankful for my apartment starting to come together.

It is a work in progress but a work I am enjoying quite a bit.

I am so thankful for yummy fall goodness…

I am thankful for how good hot chocolate tastes and it can take away any anxieties,

if just for a few moments!! =)

I am thankful for the energy I have now since losing more than 160 pounds!

I never, and I mean NEVER would have been able to accomplish this move the way my daughter

and I did if my energy levels were still where they had been.

In the matter of 3 weeks Kat and I packed up our home…

…moved all the boxes…

…loaded those boxes in my van, squeezing as much as we could daily for a week…

…moved most of our furniture to the basement so it was on the level easiest to get out the door…

and cleaned our home we just moved out of!!

Rob helped…a little but at 10 I really did not expect a whole lot.

We truly kicked buttay!

Finally, and certainly not least for this week:

I am soooo thankful for so many friends pitching in and helping move our furniture last Saturday.

Many hands make the work light goes the saying and we saw it in action.

In just about an hour the truck and trailer was filled ready to head to our new apartment.

In just under an hour it was unloaded and in our apartment, where it belonged.

Not a lot of moving around necessary!

Thank you all!! <3 <3

Have a simply marvelous day!

Until next time…

A fantabulous morning all you lovlies! Hope your week has been good to you so far. Mine BUSY!!!

I want to share something today that I am so very very thankful, grateful for with you.

First I am thankful for the peace I am currently experiencing, despite issues going on in my personal life..

I took the selfie just before going out on a date night. A night out without the kiddos and adults only that was waaayyy over due.

An incredible friend made the statement I look like I am at peace, and he hit the nail right on the head!

I am at peace…mostly.

Most days.

So I am thankful for being at peace.

I am absolutely thankful for a fresh start!

My morning protein coffee that helps kick my day into high gear.

Last but not least by far for this week, my goofy kiddos!

On my worst day they can bring a smile to my face.

I love them with all my heart and am truly thankful they are still in my life.

Even on the worst day I truly believe if you just look around you and try to see what is truly good in your life,

what truly matters you just may be surprised at what you see.

Have a truly spectacular day!

Until next time…
