I'm Proud!

The lovely Lisa over at Lisa's World wrote a beautiful post today about what she is a proud of. She entitled the post "I Am Proud" and I highly recommend you taking the time to read it. Following in her footsteps, I would like to talk about the things that I am proud of!

I am proud to make people say, "You're a librarian?? I wouldn't have expected that".

I'm proud to be the mom of the world's most beautiful, feisty, smart, funny, and lovable 10 year old.

I'm proud of the woman my sister Reecie has become! She's kind, generous, funny, and beautiful - I'm definitely a proud big sister!

I'm proud of my baby brother Jonathan for taking a chance and following his dreams even when that meant leaving home & risking it all!

I'm proud that these two people are my parents, my friends, my life.

I'm proud of my firefighter.

I'm proud to be "unconquerable"!

I'm proud that I was brave enough to rock a bald head!

And last but not least, I'm proud that I have these bad boys!

What about you? What are you proud of? 
Please share in the comments section!! I can't wait to read your responses!

    I'm proud to have moved to NYC on my own as an 18 year old to pursue my dreams. I'm proud of my beautiful, strong and intelligent sisters. I'm proud of my extremely talented husband.

  7. Wonderful thought!
    Proud of setting healthy boundaries for myself and other people. Hard to do, but necessary to grow spiritually, emotionally and physically.
