10 Examples of My Greatness

Okay, first of all, this post was not my idea. I've been trying to find time to get back together with the excellent bloggers who share lists every week on the Monday Listicles hosted by the lovely Stasha.

So, finally I got a chance to pop over there and see what this week's topic was, and this is it.

Actually, I see nothing wrong with giving yourself affirmations, but sharing them publicly is way out of my comfort zone. It's not that I don't think I'm great, because I am, but I'd just hate for you to think I'm conceited and lacking in humility. 

Anyway, this is the assignment, so let's see if I can come up with 10 explanations for my greatness.

I am great because:

1. I raised two really great kids.

2. I'm reliable. Mostly.
3. My students tell me I'm awesome, even after I inform them that this won't help their grades.
4. My grandma says I'm as cute as a button.
5. I have been known to "adopt" stray children and sometimes stray adults too.
6. Ilana says I'm the coolest mom on Twitter, and I'm sure she wouldn't lie.
7. I make the World's Greatest Pie Crust.

8. I have recently been told I also make the World's Greatest Pecan Pie.
9. I have an IQ of . . . well, it's a very nice number. 
10. Oh, yeah! I totally forgot my sense of humor. Once in a while, someone tells me I'm funny. 

So there you are. What makes YOU great?
