I've Been Tagged for a Fun Meme

Deena, my beautiful friend at Can I Be Pretty in Pink has challenged me to a meme. The meme was created by Jan at Bold and Free. I am to list 15 things that make it great to be me, so here goes.
1. I am a mother of one beautiful daughter.

2. I am the grandmother of two handsome and loving grandsons.

3. I am the wife of a good and loving man.

4. I love nature. Watching animals and birds and all of God's creations, brings me great joy.

5. I have wonderful blogging friends who stand by me when things get tough. Thanks to all of you.

6. One of my friends and I have been together for about 35 years. Jo Ann is awesome. She lives within a 5 minute drive of my house.

7. My parents were loving and taught me the lessons of life that I needed to become a good citizen.

8. Grandma taught me to love God as well as many other lessons of life.

9. I was blessed by God with a talent for writing and have realized my dream of having my writings published.

10. I enjoy living in a country where I can express myself without fear of retribution.

11. God has allowed me to climb mountains and trudge through valleys in order to make me both a stronger and better person.

12. God has allowed me to experience certain things in my life in order that I could better understand what others are going through and help them through it.

13. God has blessed me with logic and the ability to survive through situations that weren't always pleasant. With each situation I have learned a life lesson.

14. I have been blessed with the gift of giving. I am happiest when I am doing things for others and bringing a bit of cheer and joy into their lives.

15. I am blessed to be in a position where I can work from home and take care of my grandsons while their parents work.

I had fun thinking of all these reasons why I'm lucky to be me. Now, I am going to tag:

Grams at Talk to Grams


Diane at Diane's Place


Lady Di at Kitty Justice

  2. Our God is good.
    Just when we want to cry out--Don't you see what is happening????
    He smiles and the sun comes out and we see what He was up to all along.
    And we realize--IT WAS ALL FOR OUR GOOD!
    Don't you just love Him?

  5. Sharon,

    Yes, God is VERY good. I'm truly blessed that Grandma brought me up to love God and His Word.

    I have been through trials and at the time asked why, but now realize that it was all for His glory.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  21. Good Afternoon Mary,
    "CONGRATULATION'S" on the beautiful Award from Denise. She gave it to me as well. You truly deserve it very much as you have so much love to share with everyone. I will do the Tag Meme one day next week if that's okay. I was tagged for this already by Mimi and I was tagged for a couple of other things, so, this will give me something to post about next week. I enjoyed reading your Meme and you do have so much to be "THANKFUL" for as we all do. "THANK YOU" for sharing your list with us. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.
