Toot Your Horn Tuesday - First Edition

We all know that it's not polite to brag and that God warns us of being prideful, but don't we all do it from time to time? We're human and we all need that bit of affirmation. So let's let it all out here. I officially give God the glory for all of "our" accomplishments we're about to boast about. *wink*

Have I mentioned recently how awesome my kids are? This Friday night my oldest son will be singing and playing guitar at his high school talent show (for the 3rd year in a row.) I know I'll just sit there in my seat gleaming with joy. Look out American Idol!

And my other children are talented as well. Chandler sang in the 5th grade chorus program last week. Carson plays his bass guitar and keyboard in the praise band every week. I can't wait to see what Glynis can do. She's a pretty good dancer actually.

So I can't sing that well and I'm not especially talented in any other art or sport, but I'm feeling like a pretty good parent these days. Did you hear that I've been sick this past week? I'm on the mend now so I look forward to doing amazing things this upcoming week and will have lots to "toot" about next Tuesday.

Now it's your turn and I'm so glad you joined me today! On Monday's we are so tough on ourselves so let's flaunt our fantasticness on Tuesdays!

Here are the official rules for Toot Your Horn Tuesday

1. Write a list, a paragraph, a few sentences or even a book about all the wonderful things you accomplished over the last week or so. Include photos if you wish too. I love photos! Don't be modest. Really, tell us how wonderful you are! This isn't bragging. You're just sharing all of your God given blessings!

2. Make sure you copy the code from my sidebar and use the Toot Your Horn Button in your post.

3. Then, sign up on the Mr. Linky and most importantly, leave some love in the comment section below. Please use the direct link to your 'Toot Your Horn' post so that we can always find the superbness that is YOU!!

4. Lastly, check out the other blogger's posts! Leave encouraging comments for each other and maybe even learn a few things.

(If you're just visiting, feel free to just leave a comment and tell us how wonderful you were this week.)
Psalm 139: 13-14
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

What a fun idea!! I really enjoyed it. Plus, getting to brag about your kids is even better than bragging about yourself. Although I bragged about my husband this week. :) There I go already not following directions.

You sure got plenty of reasons to Toot Your Horn with your amazing family. I look forward to reading all about how the Talent Show went!
