Thankful Thursday

"I'm thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn't have stumbled across my strength."
~ Alex Elle

It's almost the end of summer break and guess who decides to get sick?  Yep, me!  Okay, I didn't decide to get sick but my body sure did.  I've been feeling so out of it and drained since I woke up yesterday.  I'm ready for this sore and itchy throat, runny nose, fever and body aches to be gone, especially this migraine that came on today.

I'm thankful for the kids though because they've been super awesome.  They've been playing extra nice with each other and giving me cuddles.  I love being a mom everyday, but on days like today when I witness my kids considerate and concerned about me being sick it makes my heart swell with pride.

Wilson from Wilson's World talking about the bands that will be at Southern Sauce.

I'm grateful that this week I had a great opportunity to hang out at the BB&T Ballpark to learn about Southern Sauce and Charlotte Beerfest.  I got to meet a new blogger friend from one of my local blog Facebook groups,  a local celebrity and I snagged my first official press pass!!  I can't wait to share all the details in my upcoming post.  It's been great to have more local companies reach out to work with me because although I've been in the Queen City for over a decade there's just still so much about Charlotte that I haven't experienced.  And I'm grateful to get to share these new experiences with my family now.

I'm giving thanks that my baby sister has a had a great week on her new job!  I'm also grateful that my mom aced her State Board Exam this week!  So many great things have happened for members of my family this week.  It's nice to be able to celebrate all of these doors being opened for my loved ones.

What's on your gratitude list this week?
