What I'm Proud Of....

My daughter.
She's accomplished so much in her 17 years. She's beautiful, intelligent, and a go-getter.
She made it in her very 1st catalog, she's been on the catwalk a few times (living her dream), and she's only just begun.

Considering school/grades are a big topic in the house...I can honestly say that she's doing very well.


I'm proud of my mom. All my life, I've known her to be a strong, confident, and independent woman.
I've seen her struggle; which made her stronger.
Now a retired woman; living the life! She enjoys doing home improvements, interior decorating (she's really good at it), and watching the Lifetime channel...lol
Love this woman!

 Then there's Levi...he hardly does anything I ask him to do, outside of using the bathroom outdoors.
But I'm proud of him for it. House training is an accomplishment! 


 Of course...I'm proud of myself.
I've also accomplished a lot over the years.
I think that one of my most proudest moments was receiving my Masters in Business Management.
There were those individuals out there who believed that once I gave birth to my daughter, I wasn't going back to school.
Doubters...

 I'm proud that I volunteer my time to help those in need.
Just recently, instead of taking the day off on Martin Luther King Day, I helped
the Delta Sigmas clean up the roads in our community for their Adopt-a-Road program.
I must say...it was so much fun.
Even though we look cold, this picture was after we finished, and we were pretty warmed up.  
It was definitely colder earlier in the morning.
Me and a couple of the girls who helped out. I actually work with them both.

I'm also proud of myself because...
I know and am friends with a diverse range of people and this diversity enriches me and makes me
a better person every day of my life.

My friends!

And most of all...
I'm proud that I've learned to enjoy being social.

Last but not least...
I'm finally sticking to an exercise I truly enjoy!

What are you proud of?

    I'm much like you in the fact that I'm proud of my daughter. She's only 13, but she's showing me who she is more and more every day.

  9. Congratulations, looks like you did a great job with your daughter. Congrats on your higher education as well. Sadly many don't continue education once they become moms but kudos to you for continuing to go after your dreams.
