Happy Veterans Day — Thank You For Your Service!

I learned something new about Veterans Day! The United States is not the only country that celebrates it. I never knew that.

I found this article in a Google Search about Veterans Day: https://www.history.com/topics/holidays/veterans-day-facts

When I joined the Navy I am pretty sure that serving my country was not foremost in my mind. I was pretty young and my motivation at that time was getting out of the house and doing something other than going to school. College wasn’t working out so well for me. I didn’t want to be there. Initially, I wasn’t even going to go through with it. Then I mentioned to some people I knew that I was talking to recruiters and they laughed at me. That was it. I had something to prove to myself and the naysayers who told me that I would never make it. Yeah, just watch me. One of the best choices I ever made in my life.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who has served, those who served and are no longer with us, those who are still serving, and to the families of all of them. Happy Veterans Day!

Thankful Thursday!

Good Morning and Happy Thankful Thursday! It is so important to wake up feeling grateful. It gives the day a fantastic beginning.

The first thing I am thankful for is my fantastic marriage and relationship with my husband. He provides me with the support both emotional and financial to pursue my online business.

The second thing I am thankful for is the fact that I can spend time learning skills that will help me grow my business. I can help many people with what I am learning now. It is pretty exciting to think about that.

I am also thankful to live near my parents and be able to help them as necessary. Building a business online provides me with the time flexibility to do that.

Even though I get a little down sometimes I remind myself to focus on what I have and not worry about what I don’t have. Enjoy your day!
