GM Foot Soldiers! I had the most awesome weekend seeing my niece and nephew, affectionately called “the twins,” graduate. There are few things I love more than being an aunt. An aunt is 20% mother, 40% mentor and 40% friend. The kind of aunt you are shows up when the cute little kids grow up to be beautiful young adults. One of the best feelings I get is the joy and love that penetrate my soul when my niece’s and nephew’s eyes glow with love as they say, “Auntie Jowanna!” and we share our special signs of affection (a wave under the chin or little spirit fingers from across the room).
I am so proud of Thea and Timothy. I love who they are individually and who they are together. They just fuel me with big doses of happiness! Congratulations, Thea and Timothy. I look forward to supporting you and your endeavors!
When I think about this past weekend and seeing five of my nieces and nephews, it fills me with so much joy and gratitude—even on a Monday. Remember foot soldiers, gratitude improves your attitude and increases your blessing. Happy Gratitude Monday (GM) everyone!
