Days 18-20 - A Look at my life

Yikes, 3 days backed up?  So sorry.  I guess I'm on the policy of gratitude in lumps....nevertheless, this is a really important week for me.  So I need to stop, take a minute, and thank my lucky stars for my life. Again.  Funny how the world seems to be a much better place when you take that 60 seconds to realize how good you really have it, isn't it?

Day 18 - I am thankful for the beautiful place I live.  I know people love to hate on New York, but it really has everything you need for scenery - the finger lakes, Niagara Falls, the city, the Adirondacks.  How could you ask for more?  I had to go to Binghamton for work today, and the Southern Tier was just gorgeous...sunshiney, some color on the trees, and some beautiful little lakes for scenery.  Just gorgeous.   How often do we really stop to appreciate our surroundings?  Not often enough!

Day 19 - I am thankful for unexpected miracles.  One year ago today, I found out I was having my perfect little man (well, baby...we didn't know it was a boy till d-day!).  After trying for a kiddo for about 10 months (which I know is NOTHING, but it seemed like it at the time!)  seeing those double stripes just made my world.  And now into being a mom for 4 months....I know without a doubt that miracles exist, because being a mom is the best thing I could have asked for.  I love my little man to bits, and am so lucky to have such a wonderful little family on Sunrise Dr :-)

Day 20 - I am thankful for new opportunities.  My program at work is currently working with a publicity firm, and as a result, Ive done tapings for WXXI and Channel 10 (Sunday morning at 7am!!), and an interview with the D and C (coming out next week).  Ill be interviewing with channel 13 next week (think they can get Rachel Glaser to do it?).  Its really cool and terrifying to be the face of our program, but I am so lucky to be able to have the opportunity to new and exciting things in my job.  C'mon, same ole same ole?  Boring.  Life is too exciting to not try new things!!

So tell me...whats on your gratitude list lately?  Spill!


  1. I am most thankful that you are my daughter. Now that you have your son, you know how I have always felt about you. You are the best!!!
