Giving Thanks

I am thankful…

for every new day God grants me in which I am given the opportunity to live, love and serve Him.

for my parents. They gave me life, they love me unconditionally and they instilled in me the knowledge, morals and values that have made me the person I am today.

for my step-parents. They love me, support me and are there for me as if I were their own.

for my extended family. I may not see you all a lot, but think of you often.

for Brandon. He is one of my closest friends and he is always there when I need him. He is wise beyond his years, gives me honest advice (even when it’s something I don’t want to hear) and when we hang out there is NEVER a dull moment.

for my amazing friends. Fallon, Dukie, Tiny, Tony…I wouldn’t be the “Princess” I am without you all. And Stephanie…I know our friendship isn’t what it used to be, but I am thankful knowing you’re still in my life.

for Sam. I’m not sure why, but he thinks I’m beautiful, puts up with my moods and goes out of his way to make me happy. I love the time we spend together and I am so happy that you are a part of my life.

for a roof over my head, food to eat and the clothes on my back.

for the little things….all those inconsequential things that make life easier, things that entertain me and things that make me smile.

for my Freedom. I am thankful for the men and women who fight every day to keep this country safe. I pray for them and their families and for those who lost their lives defending this great nation.

We are not guaranteed a tomorrow. Be kind, loving, forgiving, humble and thank God for your blessings. Be thankful for your loved ones, always tell them what they mean to you, never be afraid to say “I love you” and live each and every day as if it were your last.

Happy Thanksgiving! Eat lots of turkey and you better save me a piece of pumpkin pie!
