Focus on Life Week 25 - You are....

This week our prompt was:  'You Are...'  fill in the blank with 'the positive reinforcement YOU deserve'. 

I am a very giving person in fact I will do for others long after I should stop and look after myself.  I am married to a wonderful man and we celebrated our 38th anniversary last December.


I am creative and for me it fulfills me.  I have to do something creative every day or I feel incomplete. 


I am a grandmother to five.  Three boys and two girls.  They are the love and joy of my life.


I am a mother to a son and daughter.  They make me so proud not just because of what they do but who they have become as a person.  

I have a wonderful daughter-in-law  Kathy  so we are both Kathy Gales.


Shadow form shows strength

I am capable and determined - I feel like I can do anything I set my mind to.  One of my big accomplishments was getting my pilot's license just before I turned 50!  I am more proud of that than anything else.

                                                                              The proud day I became a pilot June 20, 2002
Right now we are experiencing floods and devastation in the southern part of Alberta - the beautiful province where I live.  My heart and prayers go out to all the people who have lost their homes and are displaced.  I am fine where I live but so much has been destroyed by this natural disaster.  

 Thank you for stopping by once again and please take a look at what others have done at The Studio Sublime

Awesome job mom/grandma. I know that compared to that, getting your pilots license was a piece of cake! Keep soaring girl, it can only get better!

I got my pilot's licence when I was 21 I was working in the NWT and some of the pilot's weren't very good.. I thought being able to take over might come in useful.. never happened.

I have a friend that was moving back to Canmore from Edmonton on Thursday they got turned around at Kananaskis. I hope their house in Canmore survives as they've sold their Condo in Edmonton.

I am so glad I stopped by to read about YOU...wonderful YOU!!! Congrats on your pilot's license! That is a really big deal...my family's business was aviation and it is not for the faint of heart. Do you get to fly often?
Weather has been severe this past year. I am sorry where you live has been so deeply affected as well. Thinking of you all. Mother Nature needs to calm down.
