The Nicest Thing Anyone Has Done For Me (A&I Challenge, Arctic Foxes, Week 3)

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Our challenge this week is to blog about the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me. There is absolutely no way I can single out just one thing as the "nicest." I have been incredibly blessed in my life to be surrounded by people that are good to me. Instead of talking about the nicest thing I've had done, I'm going to talk about the people that are kind to me daily. I'll also give an example of something nice they have done for me. Ill try to highlight just a few.

My Mom - my mom has always been my biggest supporter, in everything I have done. She has my back 110% of the time and for that I am eternally grateful.

Nice Thing - bought me a new wardrobe after my first significant weight loss

My Dad - again, always has my back. My dad came into my life as a stepdad and adopted me later on. This man is my dad. Period. To know that this man chose to be my dad made me feel so incredibly loved and wanted.

Nice Thing - does all of the dirty work for me at our place at the river lol

My Aunt and Uncle - before my mom met my dad, my aunt spent a lot of time with me. She helped fill in the gaps of single parenthood. She has been like a second mom to me. When she married my uncle, he fell right into place beside her. These two are like second parents to me and another set of grandparents to my children.

Nice Thing - my aunt takes my son to school everyday so he doesn't have to ride the bus (she works there and he would wind up with almost an hour long bus ride each day). My uncle takes his days off from truck driving to help me and mine with whatever needs done (ie, pulling our new camper 4 hours one way).

My Husband - this man is my rock. He supports me, challenges me, loves me unconditionally, and probably most importantly, is a great dad to our kids.

Nice Thing - tells me everyday he thinks I'm beautiful and that he loves me.

My Munchkins - my reason for living and breathing. These two have brought a light to my life that I never knew was possible. I am amazed everyday by them.

Nice Thing - their hugs, kisses, casual "love you Mom", and just general way of being are the best gifts I can ever receive

My Sisters - one of the greatest gifts my Dad ever gave to me was the gift of a sister. I went from being an only child to being one of a pair. My second sister is actually my cousin, daughter of the aforementioned aunt and uncle. The three of us call each other sister, friend, cousin, etc. The label doesn't matter as much as the relationship. I have two women in my life that know me, faults and all. I can call them anytime of the day or night and know they will be there for me. When I'm sad, they pick me up. When I'm happy, they laugh along with me. I'm so lucky to have these two amazing women in my life.

Nice Thing - daily texts, phone calls, emails, etc encouraging me on this journey, celebrating my successes and being supportive, even when I'm grumpy.

And finally my friends, both online and in "real" life - I've been blessed with some great friends. I have a strong support system in place, people I can laugh and cry with.

Nice Thing - being there for me, each and everyday, through thick and thin.

I feel so lucky and blessed to have the people in my life that I do. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for them.
