Happy Thanksgiving!

It's that time of year again. The holiday season is upon us. Turkey (or ham if you prefer) and all of the fixings. Time spent with family. Shopping for Christmas presents. STRESSFUL! But before all of the shopping, and football, and the meal you spend all day preparing, it is a day of thanksgiving. A time to be thankful.

This year I am thankful for my mother. Thankful for all of her love, guidance, and the time that I get to spend with her. Thank you MOM! I may be a brat sometimes, but I value our time together. Hope you feel better soon.

I am thankful for my sisters (my brothers too) but mostly for my sisters. Candi, Shannon, and Bonnie. I love you all. I appreciate everything you have done for me! You all mean the world to me. XOXO

I am thankful for my nieces and nephews and all the greats. You all have brought a lot of joy to my life. Friendship too. I love and miss you all and our time together. My angel girl Aryn gets a special mention because she has a super special place in my heart. Aunt Leslie loves you Angel Girl!

I am thankful for my church families. Livingston (MI) and Huntsville (TX). Livingston, you all made it possible for me to open up and be comfortable with you and to allow you into my life. Trust does not come easy for me. I will cherish the friendships I made there. I have the picture you all made me at my going away dinner hanging on my bedroom wall and the box of mementos sits on my desk. Huntsville, even though we are small in number, we are BIG in love and caring. Y'all ROCK and I am thankful for you too. Especially my buddy Stephnie! Love you girlie!

I am thankful for my cousins. Wynn, You were my first friend (well... next to Sheila) but you and I got to torment each other more often. John and Christine, I appreciate you too! Thank you so much for helping me and mom out when needed. You guys have hearts of gold.

I'm also thankful for my friends (new and old). Sheila, Beth & Heather, I miss you guys! Wish Michigan wasn't so far away!

I'm thankful and truly blessed beyond measure. God has been so good to me. I hope that you all have a blessed and happy holiday season and that you get to spend it with the ones that mean the most to you.
