Be grateful for “one” that makes you smile.

The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” ~ Morrie Schwartz



I often talk about my babies and friends and dreams and all the things that are important to me (ok, not all but you might be very confused as my head can be a quite a hodgepodge of thoughts at any given time ) but I rarely talk about my husband and love, KSP.  It is actually not my intention to do that today as I also believe that blogging about my spouse is a slippery slope and exploring the wonderful things and sometimes not so wonderful things is not the best thing for our relationship.  But, being that we have been so busy lately and we haven’t seen each other all that much in the busyness of life, as I listened to his voice last night on the phone since he has been out of town, I thought about how no matter what, he can always make me smile (even when we argue which if you are ever frustrated and the person can make you laugh it is wonderful and infuriating at the same time, I am supposed to be mad:)!).  So, as we approach our 4 year anniversary, I just wanted to take a moment to be grateful for him and just him. Not him as my friend, husband, partner, father of my babies, just him.  It is a perfect day to be grateful for someone special in your life.  It doesn’t have to be a person as it can be your pet.  If they make you smile then they are giving you a wonderful gift that helps to make it ‘yournewfavoriteday’.  And to my love KSP, you make each day ‘mynewfavoriteday’.

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon

    It’s about time :). Love you too babe . I am proud of everything you are and do. You’re an inspiration and I couldn’t be more proud to be your partner in life.

    Aw. ♥ What you described (about the “slippery slope”) sums up why I don’t talk too much about Ba.D. on my blog. There’s some stuff that’s not so pretty and plenty that’s beautiful, but that’s–largely–between him and me. (Every day, I see a little more clearly how touching on something “just this once” never turns into “just this once.” Not really!)
