10 things I'm thankful for.

One of my new blog friends is co-hosting a hop blog called 10 things I'm thankful for and she invited me to participate and I love the idea. It's always good to focus on the positive, its what gets us through the tough times. So here is my list:


  1. My husband: I don't know what I do with out him, he is my rock and I am certain I could not do as much as I do for Sophia if he was not around.
  2. My family: Even though all of them live miles and miles away, they are very close to us. My parents, my brothers and a couple of friends check up on Sophia very often and I know I can count on them for anything and everything.
  3. Technology: Oh I don't know what I would do without internet or phone. It's how I keep in touch with my family. 
  4. Sophia's love for me: Every time pick her up from school or I get home from work, she greets me with a huge smile on her face and a bunch of happy sounds,  then she grabs my face and "talks" to me,  it's a love fest.
  5. The opportunity to live in the USA: All the services and the education Sophia gets here are very valuable to me cause I know not everywhere kids with special needs are this lucky.
  6. Sophia's teachers: All of them have gone above and beyond to make sure my daughter get everything she needs to succeed.
  7. My friends: They have helped me through tough times. Thank you girls!!
  8. This beautiful weather: There's so many warm weather activities Sophia really enjoys, going to the beach, the pool, the park, getting on the swing... and so many more.
  9. My husband's job: Thanks to his accomplishments and promotions, I am able to stay home and focus on our daughter and be there for her. I would not change that for anything.
  10.   Sophia's cuteness: Let's face it! she is so darn cute!

  2. Thanks for linking up with us - it's great to see your Ten Things of Thankful. You're right about the opportunities of living in a country like America for people who need a little more medical/educational support - it's so good that there are resources and availability to help :)

  3. lol... I liked the phrase, 'a bunch of happy sounds' very evocative!

    I join in the appreciation of the technology that allows things like this blog hop to bring together such a far-flung group of people.

    Welcome

    1. Thank you. Yes, it's a blessing that I can do that, I have been able to see first hand how much she has progressed.

  8. I love technology for it's ability to help keep families close. My kids are old enough to text their grandparents, and it is a joy for all of them.
    For those of us who were born here, we sometimes forget how fortunate we are. Technology also helps us meet people who remind us of our blessing.
    Thank you for joining up in the blog hop.
    Sophia is adorable. I love that grin in the photo

  9. Nataaaaaaaa:

    Que orgullosa me siento de que seas mi amiga, de que me permitieras hacer parte de tu vida, en verdad tienes una habilidades increíbles como escritora, además de ser la gran persona que eres.

    Creo que jamás olvidare el día que hice que te quedaras en mi casa a pesar de saber que te estaba mintiendo solo con la intención de que no te fueras y honestamente no me arrepiento y jamás me arrepentiré.

    No hay una mejor descripción de las 10 cosas por las que estas agradecida, me siento muy afín con lo que escribiste.

    Te quiero nata mucho a ti y a toda tu familia tu los sabes.
