I’ve been so busy over the past couple of weeks that I completely forgot to blog! 😮
So what have I been up to? LOTS of family time with my kids (my son is getting married! :D), sisters and close friends. We have gone zombie hunting, shopping (of course…duhhhhh), dancing and just having fun! So today, I am going through my email and came across this week’s blogger challenge from the Berry (as I like to call her ;)). This week’s blogger challenge is to create a motivational meme. And I thought, what better way to do this than to gush over a couple of my kids and sneak some piccies of me with my youngest child, Kaysha. And of course to showcase my awesome heels by Glamistry. Because just because you’re chillin with the kids doesn’t mean you can’t do it fashionably…just sayin! 😛
So while I’m learning to make poses, I subject my poor children to pictures and when they’re not paying attention…I do stuff like this! hehehehe This is my super handsome son, Kellan who just got engaged!! I’m so happy for him!! And my son in law? HUBBA HUBBA! RAWWWR! He’s also learning how to blog so be sure to check him out! 😀
The one thing I can honestly say I’ve really come to appreciate in SL is the power of family; more specifically having kids. As a RL aside: I am reproductively challenged, so kids are not possible for me. While adoption may be an option in the far off future when finances allow, I can still have the ability to not only carry a child by being in Second Life, but also being mother to those who are looking to have one and that is something I never thought possible til I came here. That being said…I love my family more than anything and am so thankful that this place of possibilities brought them to my home and heart.
Tonight we went pet shopping and got the new cute birds from Free Bird (Kaysha will probably blog it on her blog…I dunno :P) and then play and story time after we got them all settled. I love spending time with this little one. She drives me nuts but she also fills my heart with so much joy. Aaaand is probably going “Mooooooom! You’re embarrassing me…” if she’s reading this. LOL
Aside from gushworthy moments, this blogger challenge asked us what motivates us. That’s usually a hard question to answer because some are very private with their answers, some truly don’t know and some…might feel embarrassed. I can’t speak to what motivates others. But what motivates me is the love I have for my family. Those inworld, those who’ve come and gone and those I have yet to encounter.
Second Life affords me the opportunity to have something that I may never get in my regular life for reasons that aren’t for everyone to know: a family. And they are amazing. As are the friends I’ve made along the way and even those that are no longer in my life. In Second Life, they are what help me be something better. These connections … they motivate me to be a better person. And this family that I have, all of them … help make my second life and first life simply…awesome.
