Fine – I’ll Toot Some Horns

OK, no one willing to be the first to step up and brag about themselves, ey? OK, 2nd. I went first. Well here’s just some the horns that deserve some tooting – just a few of your fellow blog subscribers:

We have Linda who has been fighting lung cancer for over 3 years now. She is never is a bitter or foul mood – at least not when I talk to her.

Then there’s Jan. She’s a great mom, and has handled moving more times than I would ever want to! And from one climate to another. She is a healthy eater and feeds her family healthy meals. She has also been working hard on her writing.

Then there’s Donna, who is another writer. Donna has come really, really far since I first met her. She was wallowing in self pity and procrastination. Now she’s got it together, has control, and is working toward reaching her goals.

Then there’s the other Jan. Always upbeat. She is another of my top affiliates. She’s a WAHM and I wish I could find her blog link. I lost a lot of info with that last computer crash. Jan – if you read this – plug yourself!

Then there’s Beth. Beth has had a lot of health problems over the years. She and her husband are finally moving into their new house that they have been working on so hard. She is always so sweet. I appreciate you keeping in touch Beth!

Then there’s Fiona. Fiona lives in Cairo. It’s a little more difficult to get the things you want on the Net there with no paypal, but Fiona reaches out and really goes out of her way. She is a great wife and mother who goes out of er way to provide the best for her family.

Then there’s Carol. Carol has it together, even though she thinks she doesn’t. But we all feel like that when we have a lot going on, don’t we? You need to give yourslef more credit girl. You’ve been dealing with a lot, and handling it marvelously.

Then there’s Cecelia. Cecelia managed to drop a lot of weight, and has kept it off for a few years now – despite the fact that she is a teacher, and works a second job. It can be really hard to keep up healthy eating when you’re never home – but she’s done it, and she looks great.

Speaking of healthy eating, there’s Debbie. She’s been a tough nut to crack – but she’s really made an effort to eat healthier and keep her house cleaner. You’re on the right track – keep up the good work!

Now you might not think that losing weight, or being a great mom, or working at home while being a great mom, or just getting yourself organized, or staying upbeat and optomistic even when life is unfair, is all that noteworthy. But I do. I think every accomplishment should be celebrated.  All those seemingly ‘little’ accomplishements add up and before you know it, you’re in a whole different place.

Don’t take your accomplishments lightly. Even if they seem small right now.

I invite you to toot your own horn. Tell us your accomplishments in the comments.
