Small Thanks

 I am grateful for more things than I can count today. But today I’m not going to bore you with all the big giant things I am grateful or thankful for. Nope, today is just about the little things.

1.Laughing until tears fall or a baby’s giggle

2. Summer cook-outs with all the old school jams playing

3. Waking up and listening to Nick’s heartbeat in rhythm with mine

4. My mama taught me how to throw down in the kitchen

5. Sunsets okay I love sunrises also. But since I have insomnia, I’m not always as happy as to see the              sunrise on another day as I am to see nightfall again. But hey, sunrise it’s me not you.

6. There are only 4 days until the MIGHTY MICHIGAN WOLVERINES kick off their season

7. 14 Days until NFL practice ends and Football begins.

8. No matter how bad I act I can always look my mom in the eye. I never have to be ashamed of me. Even when being me gets us into big trouble.

9. Such a great number that number 9 who couldn’t love it? Football season starts in the 9th month so there       you go.

10. Most grateful because I know where ever this journey I am on takes me, I’ll never walk alone.

Not a single crystal ball was tuned into Melania Trump  standing at center stage of the Republican National Convention delivering the words that initially made us fall in love fall with Michelle Obama. A lot can and has been said about the unfortunate turn of events that lead to Melania Trump borrowing part of her primetime speech from First Lady Michelle Obama.

Barbie reshapes long held ideals of beauty and body standards.

I was never a Barbie kind of girl growing up. The iconic doll with her long golden hair and thin limbs just didn't speak to me. Theoretically, I was opposed to everything I thought Barbie stood for.  The truth is I was never a doll type of girl but I might have been if I the new evolution of Barbie had been available when I was a kid.
