Thankful IV

 While I’m super stocked for all the great sales coming up, my thankful this week easily goes to the support network of people I’ve met online. Those who haven’t met me but are the first to be there for me when I seem down (even if I don’t say anything)  Sure, I’ve met my share of crazies and “mean moms” on the internet, but among all the chaos are some really great people, and for them I am thankful. They made this month easier to get through, they make me laugh, they listen to me vent, they give me advice. They’re my girls, and they’re amazing.


Friday Faves

 Hello Friday! 
It’s time to round up some of my fave things this week. 

TWD:  Seriously, can we talk about Negan? I hate him but at the same time I aboslutely adore him. This character is fifty shades of amazing, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. Here’s just a few reasons why you’ll love to hate Negan.

Fuller House is returning to Netflix

Prisma.  Seriously, I’m addicted to this app

What are some things you’re loving this week?

Lest We Forget

Today we stop, to remember the people who fight for our country, the people who keep our nation free, for the soldiers still fighting and for those that will never make it home.

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
 -Joseph Campbell

Thankful Thursday II

Today has been hard. 
It’s been 7 years since I joined the club. The one no one wants to join even though we all know it’s inevitable. I just hadn’t been prepared to join it as early as I did. Having me young meant I should have had years before losing my mom. Before becoming part of the motherless daughter club. Instead she left this world shortly after I had my first daughter. Yes, I’m grateful she got to know my boys, but now I’m also raising two girls without the guidance off a mother. I wish she had gotten to see the kids growing up. She’d love the different personalities they have.

As hard as today is I still have something to be thankful for. Today, I’m thankful for the time I had with her. For the memories I have. For those close to me who listened to me go on and on about my mom today, for those who kept me in their thoughts and sent me positive energy/prayers. For those who helped me get to her funeral when I never thought I’d make it.
