|True advice, for reals.|
This year, in spite of all its challenges and frustrations (at times), I am thankful for so many things:
I am thankful that my husband made it back from his third deployment safe and sound and that we are spending the holidays together.
I am thankful my old man pug, who is about 16 now, is still with us through another holiday season. I am also thankful or other little guy is such a good fit with the old man. They totally wub each other.
I am thankful I am gainfully employed, and I am thankful that I am nearly done with my Master's Degree.
I am thankful for the roof over my head and for the fact that we bought the house we live in so I can do whatever I want to it. New floors and countertops? Yes please! New bathroom? Working on it...
I am thankful for the opportunity to write this blog. It has given me the opportunity to discover so much about myself and "meet" some pretty awesome people that I may have otherwise not known. And I am thankful to all of you that follow me. Makes me feel special.
I am thankful for the relative health of my family and Joel's family, and I am thankful that I am blessed with some pretty amazing in-laws. They're really good people.
And on a silly note, I am thankful to all the Housewives franchises, New Girl, Modern Family, and the NFL and NCAA seasons.
There is so much more that I know I am thankful of, and even though I didn't do the "30 Days of Thankfulness" like most people, I feel blessed every day I get another chance at life on this earth. It really is an amazing life, and through all of its challenges, life is really a lot of fun. I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving wherever you're at and with whomever you're with. Enjoy it. In the words of Usher (holla!), "you've got one life, just live it." And I thank God for every breath he allows me to take.
