Holiday Hoopla Pt. 1

The day, Christmas Eve.  The air was palpable.  The calm before the storm.

I love bumbling around the house before anyone else is up; especially on Christmas Eve.  I know whats coming - excitement, joy, laughter, tears.  It truly is the best day of the year.

I am richly blessed and I know it.

Having my brother and his wife home for Christmas this year was a special treat.  We had a great Christmas Eve at mom and dads.

Who Do You Want To Be?

I'm following a blogger friend of mine, and using question prompts to help get out of a blog slump and have some cool things to write about.  The title of this post was one of the prompts.

"Who Do You Want To Be?"

This is a very tricky, but really quite easy question.  I want to be the woman that I am.  I want to make people happy, and make sure that I am happy.  I want to be an amazing wife, and a great mom. I want to be someone who inspires my co-workers, and the kind of friend that my friends know they can lean on.  Each one of these makes up the person I strive to be.

The Best Wife I Can Be

One of the things I love about Ross is he lets me be who I am.  In the almost 20 years that we've been together I have always felt comfortable in that fact.  He never doubts or diminishes my feelings, and even though we DON'T agree on each other's views all the time, I don't feel as though he judges me. We balance each other well, and I really like that about us.

An Awesome Mom

This one is HUGE for me.  There is nothing in this world more important to me than being a good mother to my boys.  I was so very blessed to have wonderful examples of what great moms are.  My mother and grandmother have shown me exactly what family truly means.  I am forever thankful for all the memories my parents filled my mind and heart with, and I sincerely hope that I have been able to do the same for my own children.

A Good Friend

My friendships are important to me, and even though I've been on this earth almost 40 years, I'm still learning what it is to be a good friend. I tend to keep people at a distance.  I don't share a lot of my worries or excitements because I often feel like it is something I need to work through on my own. I am working to be better at this.  

Easy Ways To Be Happy

In the monotony of daily life, chasing after happiness can seem like an endless, really big project. And sometimes, it is. But sometime...
