On this thanksgiving I wanted to share just a few of the many things that I am truly thankful for: 

I am thankful for my truly amazing husband.
I am thankful for my all six of my parents, my one awesome brother, my grandparents, my stepsisters, stepbrothers, brothers-and-sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews who truly light up my life every day.

I am thankful for our beautiful home that we live in. 
I am thankful that we always have enough food on our table. 
I am thankful we have clothes on our backs. 
I am thankful that we both have cars to drive that work and are 100% paid for. 
I am thankful we have steady income right now. 

I am thankful to be able to be back in college, at age 29, with the hopes of one day finally becoming a college graduate!  
I am thankful for red shoes, which even on my worst days, make me feel beautiful and powerful. 
I am thankful that my hands still work most of the time so that I can play Oscar, my piano. 
I am thankful for the days when I see well enough to drive. 
I am thankful for the team of doctors and nurses at Shepherd Spinal Center and other places, including my dad, who all help to take such good care of me year-round. 
I am thankful to have so many dear friends who cheer me on, love me and make me laugh always. 

So I put it to, fabulous readers: What are you thankful for this year? Feel free to share one favorite thing or more than one. 
Leave a comment and tell me what you're grateful for! 

Finally, I am so thankful for the people who visit my blog to check in on me. 
People email me or come up to me and tell me that I inspire them, but hearing that my small journey on this earth can do that for even one person means more than you will ever know. It inspires me to know that people out there read my writing and think it isn't half bad :-) 
So thank you...from the bottom of my heart. 
My love always,

I'm SUPER thankful for my beautiful baby girl, my fabulous husband, my rock star family and my wonderful friends. I'm feeling very thankful these days (I wonder how much of that is hormones....)!

I'm thankful for not having to go through any drama at work today (cuz I ain't got no job, but that's a different story) and a wonderful wifey, adorable son, exciting new venture, and plenty of new opportunities and some fun challenges coming up.
