Today I am thankful for my daughter Mckenna. She is growing into an amazing girl. I know as her mom I have a tendency to give her a hard time but it’s because I know she is capable of greatness! Having daddy be gone isn’t easy but she is still doing great in school, staying busy with her robotics club, doing as best as she can to help with her brother, and is really making an effort to be more helpful around the house (or at least less messy!) I never pictured myself having a daughter, I always wanted sons, and she is the daughter I could have never imagined. How this bright, beautiful, creative girl came from me is a mystery! I do love her so!
Today I am thankful for my mom. She has always been one of my biggest supporters and I have really appreciated how much she has been encouraging me for the past couple of months with Omar being deployed. Also I can’t WAIT for her to come visit so I can show her Hawaii!
Today I am thankful for the 11 years of marriage I am so lucky to have had with my husband. What an adventure we’ve had. Two kids, moving across the world, twice! I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. I love you, Omar!
Today I am thankful whatever cleaning bug got into me that enabled me to clean my house. Or at least my first floor. It’s amazing how much less stressed I feel when my house is tidy. Now if only I could keep it that way!
Today I am thankful for another birthday. It has been a wonderful year since my last birthday and I am looking forward to what the next year has in store!
Today I am thankful for my sister, Steph. Now this is especially special because today happens to be her birthday! Happy Birthday to my one and only sister. Plans have been put into place for us to see each other soon and I’m pretty excited because it’s been over 2 years since we saw her last.
