Welcome to Gratitude Monday. Each Monday stop by & comment on what you are grateful for today. It does not have to be food or exercise related. It can be ANYTHING!
It is crazy busy times right now! My youngest stepdaughter due with her baby any time now, my sister just hit town yesterday and family life things – well, it is crazy! I have to fit work in between it all… 😉
Just want to say that if I don’t get to your posts or respond to an email or comment to an Instagram or Facebook post – well, the reason is above & below.
Saying that, I am working to keep my mantra and 2015 & beyond non-goals close to my heart. Need to keep the peace of mind & peace with myself a priority! It is not hard to do that when you think about everything else going on around you. Things can be tougher than tough but there is always others that have harder times & much harder times for many.
Some of you may have seen my Instagram & Facebook posts about The Legacy Project. It is a volunteer project to get families & friends together with a family member in hospice. The first pic above & the ones below are from our project Saturday. Those that have followed me for a few years know that my hubby’s brother’s wife was diagnosed 3 years ago with stage 4 breast cancer that had already spread to the bones. She fought it well & had a good 2.5 years of relatively good health before it took over to the point that they could do no more. She is an amazing woman who had a positive attitude throughout her ordeals & just in life period! It is heartbreaking to see her go through this but we are all uplifted by her love of family & life.
Here are a few more pictures below from our Saturday. That is my post for today. Just thankful for her & all she brought into our lives! The Instagram pic shows her surrounded by her mom & daughters as well as putting her own print on the project. She made sure she was right by her daughter’s prints! The smaller pics, you see the finished products, family/friends together, her mom putting her touches on the project, my palm print, Kimberly & her hubby (my hubby’s brother), my hubby & the volunteer doing the project.
How was your week & weekend? What are you thankful for today?
