Something I forgot!

So I was reading some backed up email, newsletters I subscribe to etc. When I followed a link to a blog I have been meaning to visit, it is always in the newsletter and I never seem to have a moment to click. Well today it seems I had that moment and I clicked, and can I just say if everything happens for a reason I think I know the reason I was meant to click today.. This blog reminded me of something I forgot.
"Gratitude" The power of being positive, and thankful.

All the chaos going on in my life, close to home, and the world I have forgotten the be grateful.

I am very thankful to live in this country, I am thankful for my daughter and her amazing although young views on life and politics, I am thankful for my job which allows me to have all the comforts I enjoy, I am thankful for my power bill for I know I had light to read with power to use my computer to connect to others and power to wash and dry my clothes. I am thankful for the gas bill for I know I had heat last night to keep my family warm and to cook us a fabulous meal. I am so very thankful for the love I receive everyday from my Brennin. I know how lucky I am to have his kind loving spirit in my life. I am thank for all our children and the joy and love they bring to us, and the lessons of patience. I am grateful to have the opportunities in my life I have had, and I hope to always be able to recognize the opportunities when offered and to be Thankful for all I have and all the universe is willing to extend to me. I am thankful for my annoying cat who teaches me calm behavior is best to get my point across and save the anger for the scratching post. I am thankful to all the people in my life with strong opp ions opposite of mine for teaching me diversity and love for everyone. I am thankful for this blog giving me the space to send my gratitude out to the world.
If you are reading this blog I challenge you to post your gratitude, set your heart a flutter with the Thankful's , Set your mind free, Fly with the lessons you are learning
Love & Light

So much has happened since my last posting. I finally landed a job and I really like it. I am administrative receptionist to the project management team at Mountain States Steel. They have allot of jobs in Las Vegas and Los Angeles right now. It is really cool to see a project go from drawings to pieces of steel to a building or bridge when completed.

I have allot of pend up anger right now and don't understand why people are not more loving and tolerant of each other.
Everyone is different that is what makes us who we are, why do so many want us to think as they do and only they are right? I will be soo soo glad when the election is over, hopefully who ever wins the election will have the strength courage and knowledge to help our country and most of all support.

Late Night Visitors

About 5am Alesia came and woke me up, she said there was a weird noise outside, thinking it was a cat I got up and went in her room. I waited and then some weird squealing, clicking and some whinney. I was like that is not cat. I think it is a raccoon, I woke Brennin and we all went out side with flash lights to find these 3 little guys in a tree that goes to our roof. I of course grabbed my camera and took these photos.

Humming Birds

We have so many cool things in our yard, Lots of Baby quail and sometimes a pheasant, In the winter we have Deer and we have even had a Raccoon running around, but the coolest thing is the Humming Birds they are so fun to watch. I found this nest in my neighbors tree, I had to climb a ladder to get this picture and the Mom was not Happy to have her children photographed.

WOW !! Way to Go Lauren!

We are so proud of Lauren. She has been through so much over the last year. She set a goal at the beginning of the school year to finish High School and she did it. She has been attending the Center for High School studies and completing packets to reach this goal. She will be graduating on May 27th a whole year early. She has also graduated Drug Court and is moving past all the problems she had with drugs and relationships. She is a total different person. She is positive and making a effort to be more apart of our family. I am so happy and proud to know the person she is becoming. SHE IS AMAZING! We LOVE LOVE LOVE HER!!

Look what happened to US in Vegas

While touring the Butterfly garden at my favorite Casino the Bellagio, I ask Brennin for my camera to take a picture of the awesome butterflies in the conservatory.
When I turned around he was on one knee and my Mom,was crying. He said he doesn't want me to be his girlfriend anymore he wants me to be his wife.. Right on that bridge. I started to cry, of course you know me. He said he loves me and wants to make it official, and give me his heart. I of course said YES! So we are engaged. Here is the beautiful "Pink" sapphire ring with custom shamrocks and diamonds on the side.
I love it and I LOVE Brennin. We haven't set a date yet. It is still so new and awesome..
