Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

It's Thankful Thursday and I just want to start off by saying thank you to everyone who has been helping me spread the word about March for Charity.  It really means a lot that you took the time to link up your favorite charity and/or nonprofit.  I'm serious about this campaign and will be making it an annual YUMMommy event.  I'm even getting a sign custom made for it.  So please continue to spread the word to your blog readers and Twitter followers to come support this event.  Also, I'm still looking for sponsors to donate prizes for the March for Charity Twitter party coming up.

Moving on, I am thankful that Moo and I had our first successful meetup with our playgroup this Tuesday.  It was nice to meet other moms and their kids.  I foresee a lot of new friendships for both Moo and I in the near future.  And I was surprised to see that there was some diversity amongst the group.  I wasn't the only minority there as I had feared.  Although, I was the only Black mother there I still felt comforted seeing some Latinas, Indians and even an Asian mom.  I have a very racially diverse family and my husband is Black, Italian and Native American.  So, this is perfect for Moo.

I am also thankful that Moo is learning a new phrase or word just about everyday.  It's so amazing to see her blossoming right before my eyes.  My little baby is turning into a big girl!!  I wanted to cry as I watched her sleeping the other night. I'm not going to blame it on my pregnancy hormones.  The fact is realizing that she's needing me less and less is emotional. And I know Baby JJ will be here soon, but it's not the same.  He's not replacing her and we will have our own special bond. I'm just looking forward to being able to do Mommy-Daughter things with her while the hubby and Baby JJ do their guy thing.

I am thankful that I finally figured out how to format my eNewsletter.  I have to admit that it looks very nice.  I'm hoping to figure out how to add one of those Subscribe to My Newsletter buttons on here next.  Yes, I'm becoming somewhat of a blog design and html pro.  The hubby suggested I try to that on the side. Idk though, I still have so much more to learn.

Last but not least I'm thankful that I'm finally taking the steps to get into business for myself.  I will be posting more about that in the future, but I can say that it involves writing, fashion, motherhood and travel!!  Starting any business venure is scary.  And because I will soon have two kids and we're trying to buy a new house, it is especially frightful because of the financial risk.  But I serve an awesome God and He wouldn't have given me this vision three years ago if He didn't know that it would be successful.

So, thank you all for sticking in here with me. Thank you to all my new followers who have decided to join this journey with me. Your support is greatly appreciated!!

So, what are you thankful this week?  And did you remember to link up your favorite charity and/or nonprofit?  They could win up to $2000 to help out needy families!!  If not check out the linky below.
