I know I look short here. I'm actually 5'7. My eldest son is 6'4 and my youngest is 5' far.... It's great to be me because of:

1: My Family: through thick and thin, babyhood & teenagers there isn't anyplace I would rather be than with you.
2: My DH of 20 years is so patient. He listens to all of my stories, over and over again. And he's pretty cute too and still calls me "My one & Only."
3: Life with all of my little animals. They bring me such joy and now that my babies don't like to be hugged and kissed as much....poor dorkipoos and kitty.
4: I am able to stay home and have a wonderful business that is now starting to take off.
I guess you could call it my blissfull occupation. I love old photos, ephemera and anything girly. It is the perfect outlet for me. My Dh was always worried that our house would look like Mary Englebreits; baby nursery. (She is a great inspiration), but i managed to curb my enthusiasim for the baby/girl style and focus all of that energy on my baby line.
5: I have wonderful friends. Life would be no fun without them. As women, I notice that the older I get the more I need my girlfriends. Sometimes I think they are the only ones who truly "get" me. Maybe it's because we all share the same hormone havoc.
6. I love the age I am right now. (48). I feel strong enough to say what I mean and Brave enough to do what I want. Fear is less a factor for me now. I know that God has me in the palm of His hand; my children in the shadow of His wing; and my future in his sight. It is a good place to be.
Now I get to forward this wonderful gratitude to someone else......maybe you!

Hi Karen!
Loved your list, and what a lovely, handsome family you have there...and tall goodness....those tall genes pretty passed by most of my family..we musta been from the low-lands dinosaur days..LOL!
Nice to have you visit. My one little gal has been pretty sick for 3 days..fever,soar throat,hives,ear infection, cough..a bit out of the usual routines here.
Thanks so much for playing and listing your "tag" stuff...yep I thought of that old negative baggage at first too, until the blessings just start flowing!

night, night! and peace to your family
