I love reading these lists but think I’ve only participated once! This year has been extremely busy and full of discovery so I felt compelled to add my thoughts. I am so very thankful for…
The loving community I am part of (it takes a village) Especially my “mom” friends who always relate to my struggles. I don’t feel so alone when I can talk to these women and hear they have similar struggles. We are all doing our best!
Amazing caring teachers and schools willing to go the extra step to help my boy who was struggling!
The Kennedy Elementary PTA! I have learned so much being on the board this year. Our school would have so little if it weren’t for this incredible group of women giving their time freely!
Therapy! 3 out of 4 in our little unit are now working with wonderful therapist! Always striving to be my best self and sometimes that means outside perspective and intervention, HA!
Men that break the mold! That are not the stereotypes of macho sexist male ego that society tries to push down our throats. REAL men that are reliable, trustworthy, respectful, sensitive, caring, yet strong… yes men like my Jonathan 🙂
Gymnastics!! It is amazing what my 7 year old little girl is capable of! The strength, flexibility, discipline and confidence are so incredible. I am so proud of her and so thankful to be able to financially support her passion!
Sport groups that are NOT competitive driven for kids that are NOT competitive driven, but love the game and want to play and have fun. I9 Sports!! Thank you!
The family business that I’m so fortunate to be a part of. The flexibility of working with family, to be able to stay home with sick kids, participate in the PTA, go to endless appointments… it’s priceless!
Amazon Prime… need I say more?
The surge of small plate style restaurants. Love trying many dishes at one meal!
The revival of Detroit! Love being a part of this city making it’s comeback! Feeling proud to work for a business that’s been established in Detroit since 1952!!
Access to my parent’s up north lake house! An escape and place to breath and reconnect.
Living in Michigan with our up north and great lakes!
The 30ft camper my parents bought for my sister and I to benefit from! We were able to travel all the way to the NH White Mountains hauling that thing and camping all along the way.
Which brings me to my husband’s driving skills and expertise in all things with wheels.
And of course camping!! I am a happy camper 🙂
