These days, I know for many, many in this world it's hard to say, "I am thankful for..." I know I had quiet the year of really high ups and really low, lows. So I decided to take it one month at a time. Simply, thinking back over the past year and finding at least ONE thing to be thankful for, so here are my 11 months of thankfulness:
- January: I am thankful for another birthday. That the Lord gave me another year to share with my family and friends.
- February: 1) I am thankful for my son, Eli. 2) I am thankful for my friends, Sam & Frances for all their love and hosting my son's 4th birthday. Miss them deeply.
- March: 1) I am thankful that the Lord brought my niece into this world safe and sound. 2) I am thankful that my friends, Heather & Richard opened their home to us with love and support. Miss them deeply.
- April: 1) I am thankful that after 6 years, my husband is finally out of the Air Force, safe and sound. 2) I am thankful for 5 years of marriage to my prince in shining firefighter gear. 3) I am thankful that the Lord died for my sins.
- May: I am thankful for business picking up.
- June: I am thankful for my friends who supported my career by helping make things happen; Sabrina Noel Hill, Christina Martinez and Lily Hernandez.
- July: 1) I am thankful that I was able to help my friends Dee and Jason have a wonderful anniversary. 2) I am thankful that my hubby got his dream job.

Last, I'm sure I'll find something to be thankful for next month. Meanwhile.....enjoy your families, your friends; enjoy those laughs, those moments; enjoy that food, that hug. Breathe it all in and hold it.
