 I don't know what to say, I am horrible at this. I know that my life is not perfect, nowhere near perfect. Seriously not close at all. It's been a long, hard road with lots of ups and tons of downs. There has been times I just want to quit, but I don't and I won't. Rather than looking at what I don't have, I look at what I do have. If we spend our time thinking about what we don't have and whining and complaining and doing nothing about it, we will go nowhere so with all the bad, I remain positive as best I can, I am So Thankful for everything I do have, God,  my husband, my children, my grandparents, all of my family, my home, health, etc. I love to spread a little love and cheer, I don't want to be known as the downer, the whiner, etc. I want people to see and know that no matter what I do or don't have, I am happy, it is what me make it, right? Now with all that said, and this may seem so silly to people. But this blog means so much to me, the people I have met, chatted with, emailed, all of you Awesomes that take the time to read my blog, you have no idea how much it all means to me. Seriously, I am a SAHM and I love it but this gives me a chance to me, a chance to be creative and share it, and who knows where this will lead, how many doors it will open, all the new fabulous people I will and have met. It just truly Amazes me! It gives this sometimes lonely bored mom a little something outside of home to look forward to. Your all truly amazing and Thank You. And Thank You Gwen again for this lovely award!
