On Being Grateful – Mardra’s Blog Hop

I turned on the computer and found an invitation to “blog hop” with my friend and team member on The RoadMardra Sikora.  The topic is “What are you grateful for.”   I know, I’ve already posted today – but since it’s such a great topic, and she asked….  it’ll be a two-fer day.


Stephanie and Josh


Number one on my list of things to be grateful for is ALWAYS Josh.  I grew up thinking I’d have lots of kids but was only every physically able to have the one.  Boy did I hit the jackpot!  He is perfectly made.  He’s been my light, and quite frankly, my reason to go on, from the moment he was born.
The Hollands


I’m grateful for the roof over our head, a soft place to sleep (I love to sleep), and food to feed my ever-hungry son.  I’m especially grateful for our guardian angels who let us come for a visit and not only allowed us to stay but have welcomed us into their family!

Nothing is Wasted

Finally, I’m grateful for the feeling of renewed purpose in my life (outside of my first job – being Josh’s Mom).  The Road We’ve Shared and #JusticeForEthan have not only renewed that fighting spirit within me, they’ve introduced me to some really amazing people who I’m blessed to call my friends.   I’m starting to remember what it feels like to have a dream and a goal again.  I believe in our mission and think what we’re doing will make a difference in the world.

Thanks Mardra!  It’s always good to “check yourself” once in a while and remember that there are blessings that we don’t always take the time to acknowledge.  If you’d like to join in – you can leave your list in the comments – or link up to the blog hop!  The more the merrier!

Best of luck to you and yours on all the FABULOUS things you’ve got goin’ on!   Hop on!
