Thankful #4

I am thankful for MY HEALTH!
I am thankful that GOd has blessed me with Good health. I can get up out of bed each morning on my own, and carry Koby(though he is a bit heavy these days) to the table for breakfast. I am thankful that I can breath on my own, and I can see and hear the world around me. I am thankful that I can type this very blog with ease. I am thankful that I have never had anything seriously ail me and that God has taken away any little thing along the way! I am thankful that I am blessed with Good....NO GREAT Health!

Thanksgiving meal...what are you having?

I think it is interesting how just depending on where you live, or where your parents are from, or the city you grew up in...determines GREATLY what you eat for Thanksgiving....
Being from the South we eat stuff that some people have never heard of...or would DARE try! Talking to a girl at work from Connecticut she can't BELIEVE we have Macaroni and Cheese for Thanksgiving. Where as I can't believe they DON'T have green bean casserole.
WE have cornbread stuffing,and they have stove top, we don't really eat mashed potatoes...we have is just very interesting to me!
So here is what we eat...

Green Bean casserole
Homemade stuffing ( which has cornbread, eggs, etc-NO nuts .or cranberries!)
Turnip greens
Sweet Potato Suffle
pecan pie

I am probably forgetting something....but I will add it later.
...Now what do YOU eat?

Thankful #3

I am thankful for my JOB! I am mostly thankful that even in this sour economy, I have no fear of losing my job, while I know many people who have lost theirs and continue to and my heart breaks for them! I am thankful that my company does whatever it can to protect us, and take care of us! I am thankful that they are flexible with my schedule and I can take care of my son when needed. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my job and I am glad that hey love me least most of the time! LOL!

I am Thankful for My parents. They are AMAZING! They help out in any way we need them to. They are always there for me, no matter what. They are the GREATEST grandparents anyone could ask for. They spoil Koby to pieces and he loves them! They love me and Chris and are just great to us! I truly thank GOD for such great, loving and supportive parents!

Alot of people have been posting "thankful" blogs, about the things they are most thankful for in honor of Thanksgiving being just around the corner. I too want to join in the thanksgiving and daily list what I am most thankful for.So here goes

I am thankful for my Salvation.
It is the number one thing I am thankful for in life. Without it, I wouldn't be the person I am today, and I certainly wouldn't have the many blessings I do. I am thankful that I live in a country that allows me to serve God, freely and openly with out fear. I am thankful that God loves me in spite of my mistakes,and shortcomings, and knows that I do my very best to serve him. I am thankful that Jesus died on a cross many years ago, so that I could live, and be forgiven! I am thankful for my wonderful church and my awesome Pastor. I love that because of my job, I don't get to make it to church every Sunday, but that I try my very best, and get there every chance I can, and I am not looked down on because of it!
Yes....I am VERY VERY thankful, I am saved!

I get to meet the VICE PRESIDENT TODAY!!!

...of my Company that is! This is a big deal...for a few reasons.
Number one is I take work WAYYY too seriously. I am pretty much a workaholic,and I really LOVE my job. It isn't just a JOB for me but a genuine career. The second reason is...he never comes to stores "like mine". I work in a regular door store, so it isn't like we give him a real reason to leave the West coast and come clear across the country to view my 5077 sq feet of Guess wonderland!LOL The third reason's the week before green really is a "home base" week,(which means everyone stays at their home stores/or corporate office to prepare for next week aka Green week) but he is so awesome and decided to come on over, and take a tour for an hour or so. It is sooo exciting for me. I feel like I am meeting a celebrity! I have a whole presentation for him and everything! SO anyway...I just wanted to share my excitement with you guys and tell you why I haven't been around much to blog lately. IT has been busy getting ready for him( and My District Manager, Area Brand Manager, Regional Director are joining pressure...I mean why didn't they just bring Paul Marciano himself?LOL).They are just going to come in a grill me on the how ans why's of the Holiday season and achievement. Anyway, say a prayer and wish me luck!!!!

Koby voted!

Koby's teacher says that Playdough won by a landslide!
This is a picture of his ballot! This is why I LOVE his teacher this year! She goes above and beyond, even with these differently abled 3 and 4 year olds ! Koby loves her to death and he is actually REALLY learning this year!!!! Anyway...looks like I got a playdough man here!!!!

Australia bans Kid with Down syndrome!!!!!

YOu have GOT to be kidding me!
This man moved his family their to HELP the Australian Government. WHAT would the cost have been to the government had he NOT gone to help. And they are using his SON and the fact he has Down syndrome as a reason he can't stay? And I LOVE how they try to say it isn't the disability....ohhh...well okay then. Now you REALLY make no sense! I am just glad that there are so many Australian, German and American officials behind him. I hope this gets over turned for him. But in a way, let him go to a place where he and Lukas will be accepted and appreciated! He is doing a great thing and making a huge sacrifice, and all they can think about is Lukas' Down Syndrome. He is practically an adult now, which at this point doesn't need all the medical services and Therapies most kids with DS need when they are little. the family said, they don't want or need any government help. Guess this goes to show you that they would rather 54000 people suffer with no quality medical care, than to have one "friendly kid" who just happens to have Down syndrome living in their Country. What YEAR is this?
