Thankful Thursday: 10.23.14

Hello there my lovlies. Hope your week has been a good one.

Fall LOVE it!! @

So as I am sitting down to gather my thoughts on what I am thankful for I get a notification I have been tagged on my Blog FB page.

So I read…

I cry…

I am truly thankful for all the people that have crossed my path over the years…

…in real life…

and in the cyber world.

This is what I saw when I went to the post I was tagged in:


Totally just knocked my socks off.

I have “known” Carla for probably close to 5 years or better and she has taught me so much about loving myself no matter where I was in my journey.

Unapologetically Myself

Love that thought.

So I am thankful Carla and I have crossed paths.

On the home front I am thankful for my apartment starting to come together.

It is a work in progress but a work I am enjoying quite a bit.

I am thankful for how good hot chocolate tastes and it can take away any anxieties,

if just for a few moments!! =)

I am thankful for the energy I have now since losing more than 160 pounds!

I never, and I mean NEVER would have been able to accomplish this move the way my daughter

and I did if my energy levels were still where they had been.

In the matter of 3 weeks “K” and I packed up our home…

…moved all the boxes…

…loaded those boxes in my van, squeezing as much as we could daily for a week…

…moved most of our furniture to the basement so it was on the level easiest to get out the door…

and cleaned our home we just moved out of!!

“R” helped…a little but at 10 I really did not expect a whole lot.

We truly kicked buttay!

Finally, and certainly not least for this week:

I am soooo thankful for so many friends pitching in and helping move our furniture last Saturday.

Many hands make the work light goes the saying and we saw it in action.

In just about an hour the truck and trailer was filled ready to head to our new apartment.

In just under an hour it was unloaded and in our apartment, where it belonged.

Not a lot of moving around necessary!

Thank you all!! <3 <3

Have a simply marvelous day!

Until next time…
