I have gotten behind on Celes’ 14 Day Gratitude Challenge. I am catching up now and I’m grateful for that.
Today’s assignment is about sharing. I think it feels good to share with other’s. I agree with Celes, with so many different social networking sites, sharing is even easier. I often share my computer with family and friends who don’t own one. I have made some friends a music playlist for their MP3 players. On Facebook, I am constantly sharing music I enjoy and quotes. I have several favorite quotes. One of my favorite quotes comes from a memoir by Jeanette Walls called The Glass Castle. Her father said this to her, “Whoever coined the phrase ‘a man’s got to play the hand that was dealt him’ was most certainly one piss-poor bluffer.”
That quote honestly made an impact on how I looked at things. For one, it wasn’t some quote by a famous person that people grab for inspiration. I like those quotes too. This came from her father talking to her about life and struggles. That’s probably the reason it stuck with me all this time.
3 Things I am grateful for today:
Lovely weather outside.
Enjoying the book, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I had seen the movie in May, but never heard of the book. Apparently, I have been missing out. Though the movie was terrific, also.
I am grateful I came across Piper Punches’ blog and now she agreed to let me have an interview with her. The interview will be published in this blog on Friday. So, watch for it!!!

This is a spoken word poem/art. It gave me chills at the end and moved me very much. I have two children. My oldest is 11 and she started 6th grade this year. She questions me is she pretty. This video sums up how I want to answer her question. She will never be just merely pretty. She will be so much more than what media tells women they need to be. I’m ashamed to admit, I’m not a good role model when it comes to showing her there is more to life than looking pretty. I’m trying to change that through education and job changes. I want both my daughters to look at me and realize, even at 36, people can turn their lives around, attend college, find forgiveness, respect themselves, own their mistakes without shame or blame, and find happiness they didn’t have before by simply not loving themselves as much as they should, as much as they love any other person.
