Make November Thank YOU month in your life!!

HEY THERE~~
I challenge YOU to make the most of the Thanksgiving season and make November “Thank You!!” Month~
Here’s some tips and ideas on how to do it:
1– take 10 minutes today and make a list of all the people in your life that you could say “thank you” to …aim for a list of 30- one for each day of November
2– take a couple minutes each day to say “Thank You” to that person at the beginning of your daily journal status or  blog  post
3– make sure to follow through by thanking them personally too!
Let’s have fun with it~~”
Thank YOU”!!!


Now here is my START to this Challenge:

NOV 1-Thank you my son, Gunner!
Thanks to Gunner, I am a Mommy!
Thanks to Gunner, I have a boy whom I can cheer on in Football and in all the BOY things of life!!
Thanks to Gunner, I realize how much of my own attributes were passed on!
Thanks to Gunner, I have yet another man who will love me and whom I will love forever!!!
Thank You Gunner for being the BEST son in the whole world!!!
I picked Gunner to thank today because he had his last 7th grade Football game tonight…It’s been a tough season for them. Lots of losses and getting used to their growing bodies, lol!
Thank you Gunner for being you~! I love you!

NOV 2- Thank you my Family!!
So for this second day of the month, I’d like to say “Thank YOU” to my Family…Meaning my extended family…My parents, siblings, the in laws, etc…I want to thank them for all the love and support they given me through the years. Family is important because at the end of the day, no one will ever care for you as much as your family.
I picked today to thank them because it is my youngest brothers birthday today, Matthew is  24 now married and on his honeymoon!!  Happy Birthday! I think God was preparing me a bit for motherhood by giving me a brother that was 14 years younger than me. I babysat him a ton the first 2 years of his life! And then I got a car, so I managed to do it less as I grew older, lol!
Thank YOU my family!! I love you!
Nov 3- Thank YOU TEAM BUFFMOHTER “ORIGINALS”!!
I want to thank the Originals!!! The original founding leaders of TEAM BUFFMOTHER and our Private Women’s only area www.TheRallyRoom.com. Did you know that at that we started way back when as a Yahoo! group??  I don’t believe yahoo groups even exist anymore, lol!!  We quickly out grew that format and as members wanted more security, leaders began to emerged there….The “originals”  were invited in in Jan of 2006 prior to us even opening the our membership area to the world on March 1, 2006. They tested it and were instrumental in welcoming all the newcomers when we did open up.
Since then they have all made an enormous impact on countless members of  TEAM BUFFMOTHER and the Rally Room, including ME!!
Thank YOU so much for your devotion, positive energy and leadership in making TEAM BUFFMOTHER and the Rally Room  the BEST support group for women in the WORLD!!!
I LOVE You!!

And TODAY!! November 5th– Thank you HUBBY!
Today, I want to thank my DH Travis! He is my best friend EVER and is the reason I am BuffMother!! Travis, I can’t begin to describe all the reasons why I love you so much and all the value you’ve added to my life, but I an so thankful to God that you are in my life!
Thank you for your encouragement!
Thank you for your sacrifices you make to care for me and our kids!
Thank you for your involvement in my life!
Thank you for your LOVE!
Thank you for your desire to be with me over anyone else in the world!
Thank you for desire to see me succeed! I love that you are my Lover and my Friend!!
Thank YOU!!

Weekly Q! Week 3, 2009


It’s Wednesday today…so that means it’s “Weekly?” TIME!!!
Our question for this 3rd week of 2009 is….Do you have pets? …or have you had any in the past?(Week #3-2009)
I was amazed last week when EVERY news station in the world was covering WHAT kind of DOG the new president should get?? It is amazing how much value is placed on pets in our society! Pets are fun, they bring joy, laughter and love into our lives…plus they also help teach responsibility and often times provide helpful services in the lives of owners (security, assistance)
So…with that said. Please tell me about all about your pets!
Currently the Berger household has NO pets! We have 4 small children and I look at adding pets to our home as seriously as adding more children~ I have too much on my plate already without adding more. However, I do expect that we will have have pets in the future. We’ll probably start with a Dog, then depending on how that goes…add other animals to our life from there.
I have had pets in the past. When I was 5 my parents got us a dog- SMOKIE was his name~ he was fun, but CRAZY. We ended up giving him up for adoption about a year later and I didn’t have a pet until I was in college. We got a ferret names SQUIRT and then a few months later a cat, who got sick and passed away, then another ferret name BRUTUS. The ferrets were fun for that “season” in our lives, but they were a mess and in the end we moved and gave them away.


Do you have any pets? or have you had any pets in the past? Do you have any funny, heartfelt stories to share about pets?
let’s have fun by sharing~
