"Change Your Attitude To Gratitude."
I was talking to my aunt Erma last night and she truly touched my heart and asked me to post this quote that means alot to her. The amazing thing about my aunt is that with everything she has endured through her life, she is still able to have faith and be grateful for what she has in her life. My aunt has overcome so much adversity in her lifetime that our family refers to her as the woman with nine lives. And even though she has dealt with so much, she believes in living her life with a positive outlook and a continuing show of gratitude. My aunt and I are so close and I want to personally thank her for everything that she has done for me...from going to my basketball games in high school, to going to my high school and college graduation, for being a true example of STRENGTH and DETERMINATION, and for always supporting and loving me unconditionally. Thank you for being such an important part of my life and for that I am grateful for YOU!
So my message to everyone is to always be grateful for what you have and who you have in your life. Never take life or the people in your life for granted. ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL! I, personally believe that the people closest to me, MY MOM, MY SISTER, MY AUNT ERMA, AND ALL OF MY FAMILY have truly shaped me into the person that I am today. I will soon include a blog dedicated to the most important person in my life...the one that has sacrificed everything for me, the one who instilled the values and the strength to make it in life, the one that introduced me to the game of basketball and supported me at each and every game, the one that rushed to my side when I had to undergo ACL knee reconstruction surgery four times, the one that taught me to multitask and to be creative in all activities, the one and only that made me do book reports every summer growing up....MY MOM!
