My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Toast to Tuesdays ~

I am toasting to:
My downed trees not hitting or causing damage to my house
To Cooper's first Christmas
To the appreciation of the beauty of snow and winter
To good health
To having a job
The Christmas spirit melting hate in people's hearts
Happy Tuesday Ya'll!
What are you thankful for today?????

oh thank you for reminding me to be grateful today! I have been kind of bogged down in negativity for a few days. But I'm going to turn this ship around!

I am grateful today for you Heidi!

Great post. I love your positive spirit. I am grateful for snow and snow and more snow. I am grateful for a warm house so I can enjoy the snow and then come inside and warm up. m

I'm thankful you!! I know that I can come to your little slice of the blog world and find encouragement. You even encouraged me to keep blogging when I wanted to throw in the towel.

I hope that you have a blessed Christmas Heidi, and I hope that Santa brings you at least ONE thing that you really want this year.
