Hi everyone! Are you almost ready for Christmas? I still need to do a few things. I’m planning on baking cookies, most likely Biscochos/ Mexican holiday cookies later on tonight or tomorrow. I recently posted my mom’s recipe for them. You can check it out here.
Today is the last day of the challenge for me. I want to thank Scales Simple for nominating me for this wonderful challenge! I also want to thank her for coming up with it. Day 12 asks what I’m grateful for this Christmas. Here is my list. What are you grateful for this Christmas?
This Christmas I’m grateful for:
Good health. It could use some improvement but I’m grateful I’m not in the hospital or suffering from a terminal disease. It can be difficult to get around life without good health.
My family members who love me unconditionally. They’ve been there for me through thick and thin. They’ve never turned their back on me when I was struggling in life. They’ve seen me shine! At the same time, they’ve seen me at my worst.
My son and Andre. My son makes me want to work hard in life for him and myself. He’s changed me in such a positive way. Even though me and Andre have our ups and downs, he continues to be in my life. He’s helped me a lot in the nearly three years we’ve been together. He’s been there when I’ve needed someone to talk to, celebrate good times, take care of me when I’m sick, help me with my son and the list goes on! He’s become one of my best friends. I love my family more than they know.
The true friends I still have. The ones I can talk to whenever, whether it’s 6 a.m. or midnight. The ones who don’t judge me. The ones who understand me or at least make an effort to. I’ve already met some great friends here.
Each and every one of you who reads Life of an El Paso Woman. I didn’t know where this blog was headed when it started on Feb. 25. Do you know what my first post was? Lol. It was a review about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I’m so grateful to have a total audience of over 1,100 here, by e-mail and on social media. I think this blog will continue growing. Thank you!
This post is dedicated to you. Have a wonderful holiday season and a great 2016! Keep blogging!
