Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!

I am writing this today because I will not have time to do it tomorrow.  LOL :-)   I started out today trying to think of all of the things I have to be thankful for.  I realized I have so many things to be thankful for, and I want to share this with all of you!  Last year at this time my life was completely turned upside down.  I didn't know how things were going to be O.K. ever again.  I had hope for a future with good things again, but didn't see how it was possible.  I could not see past my day to day... put one foot in front of the other and survive at that point last year.  A year later... so much has happened!  I am at a completely different place!  No REALLY!!  God is so good!  My life is completely different, and yet it is not... I am still me and I am confident in who I am.  I am thankful for God's love and faithfulness, for my family (ever growing!! babies for Bobby and Shanlee, Chelsea and Pedro, and Kevin and Candace) ,my Husband (you are amazing... such a blessing to me, and I am so lucky to have you!)  for my children (all three of them...I never would have seen that one coming), for my friends (who through all of this have helped me stay strong and encouraged me... you guys have no idea how much you mean to me).  I am Thankful for my health, and my home.  I am Thankful for forgiveness and for healing.  I am Thankful for new beginnings, memories of the past, and excitement for all of what the future holds.  I am so Thankful for so many things...  I pray that you will all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday!  For those of you who I won't get to see this Thanksgiving here is a great big hug and kiss from me!
