Monday Me 15/12/2014: My Birthday

The great part about my birthday being at the end of the year is that it gives me a chance to review the good and the bad from the past year. 32 has had its ups and downs, a lot of of blessings and an equal number of lessons. I have so much to be thankful for, and so to reflect on another year gone by here are the things and people in my life that I am thankful for.

  • My husband Justin, who despite my occasional nagging, extreme forgetfulness, sentimental hoarding and quirky character loves me unconditionally, supports and motivates me and is also the one who is the voice of sanity when life gets a bit cray cray 🙂
  • My 2 beautiful girls, Jasmin and Teyla. Never would I have dreamed of being blessed with twins and to see them grow into such loving, independent and beautiful little girls is an endless source of joy to me. I’m thankful that I can be the kind of parent that 2 spirited kids like them need and that they know how much I love them.
  • My parents, who when I was younger I didn’t completely understand, but as a parent now, I see the method behind their madness and appreciate even more all  that they have done and still do for me and my own family.
  • My sisters, Niresha and Saiyuri. I’ve read somewhere that sisters are the friends God chooses for you and it’s true. I have a different type of relationship with each of my sisters but the thing that is the same and is constant is my love for their and their love and support of me.
  • My grandmother is the last of my grandparents still with us and I am thankful every day that we still have her in  our lives and I can answer the phone and hear her on the other end saying ‘Hello my darling ‘. I’m guilty of not spending enough time with her, but 33 is going to be the year that that changes.
  • My old friends. These are the ones that know all my deepest darkest secrets. Even though we are spread out around the country, I’m thankful for having them in my life because I know that no matter what is going on in my life, good or bad, they are there without judgement to support or rejoice with me and they know that I am there for them as well.
  • My new friends. I’ve made so many new and wonderful friends this year who have shown me that you are never too old to create new friendships and connect with people. I’ve had so much fun with them and done so many new things and some old things that I haven’t done in a while too. It’s always something to be thankful for when we are able to meet a person with a good heart and a great personality as well.
  • My business. This past year has been amazing for my business and it has grown incredibly. I am thankful for each and every one of my customers that spend their hard earned money on my products, the people that talk about my business and the wonderful and even sometimes not so wonderful feedback that I get.
  • Time. I’m thankful that I control my own time. That I can choose when I want to work, so that I can spend time with my family.
  • I have my health, a wealth of love and hopefully some wisdom 🙂
