It’s Friday! You know what that means. Time for some good vibrations gratitude.
This week I am starting something new.
I am inviting you join me on Good Vibration Gratitude Fridays!
You are probably wondering how you get in on the action.
It’s easy! If you are grateful for something, please either comment below or share a pic of what you are grateful for on Instagram with the hashtag #goodvibrationsgratitude
Also feel free to follow me on Instragram at @kerrymckim
Here is what I am grateful for this week.
- Hallmark Christmas Movies
Though I don’t advise actually playing this game. You will be lucky if you make it 20 minutes.
- Children’s Grief Awareness
I did not know that there was a month dedicated to this but I am grateful that there is. At first I thought that my daughter’s predicament was rare but then I thought about it. First there was my daughter.
And several friends who told me that they lost a parent at her age.
And I have widow friends with children.
And my mother lost her brother when she was a child so that would mean she and her siblings were affected (even though her youngest sibling wasn’t born yet, I do feel that siblings can feel a sense of loss even if the sibling died before they were born.)
And my best friend lost her mother when she was a child.
And the sad thing, I can go on with more examples of families within a first degree who have experienced loss. This is much more common than we think.
So if you are/were a child that is grieving or are close to a child that is grieving, they are not alone.
Please be supportive to grieving children and their caregivers and families.
- Attending a political rally
Last weekend I took my daughter to her first political rally. She enjoyed the experience though she told me that some people were too loud and hurt her ears.
While the New York elections did not go the way I wanted, I do appreciate that we have a right to vote.
I have always brought my daughter to vote with me. It is important for her to grow up seeing the process. I voted around 5:30 pm and it looked like they were running low on stickers but we got one. And I made sure to post this pic on social media because I heard votes only count if you post a picture with your sticker on social media.
- My parents visit this week.
My parents came out this week to help me pack up stuff and my Dad fixed a few things around the house. Most importantly, the elevator on Barbie’s Dream House.
I didn’t get any pictures except my instragram picture from the 99. We always go to the 99 because we are #newenglandAF
What are you grateful for this week?
