Always more to be thankful for!

27. I’m thankful for the amazing women I had in my life growing up as role models!  My Mom, Grandmother and Aunt Verda!  Aunt Verda taught me on the cooking and baking and most importantly, how not to act.  My Mom and Grandmother taught me to keep a clean house, spoil the heck out of those you love & make the holiday’s and birthday’s special, to give, that you can have friends with anyone no matter your age difference, that there is something great about every year so enjoy each birthday, to forgive and never hold grudges…I could go on for days! 
28. I am so thankful for where I am at today in my life.  I love my life and those that are in it!  It feels like a second chance at life & that I’m getting the mate that I always wanted!  So many firsts that I am getting to experience with Dave this year and I it’s so fun!  The magic of Christmas is alive in our home!

29.  Today I incorporate two into one!   I’m so thankful for Coco and the amazing people that work at BluePearl Vetrinary Partners .  I still truly believe Coco was the sacrificial lamb that was the eye opener for me with Brad.  I miss her every single day and am thankful that we had her in our lives even if just for 2 ½ months that we did.  She was Tanner’s & my first experience with a puppy together!  As I always tell Tanner, we WILL have another Coco!

30 days of being thankful continues...

19. I’m thankful for having my car!

20. I’m so thankful for my Grandpa Taylor and that when he passed we were given money b/c a portion of that money was used to pay off my car which has helped me more than I could ever begin to thank him!  Someday Grandpa…I’ll see you in Heaven and thank you for all that you continued to do for me even after you were gone! I miss him dearly everyday & miss our afternoon conversations on my way home from work when I would call and get to hear his voice!  This was the last time I saw my Grandpa, Nov 2006.  We all went down to Arizona to celebrate his 90th birthday.  It was a great time & I got to see all my Taylor cousins I'd not seen in years!

21. I’m thankful for my energy & that I am a morning person!  Having been up at 3:30 & 4 the past few days, and again today b/c Zoey decides she’s not going to stay put in that crate any longer! Love this girl...she's lucky for that!  

22. Coffee – whoever came up with coffee is a genius!  Oh how I love my coffee!

23. My Grandpa Gingrich, Mom, cousin Gary & sister Helen who all had a hand in instilling the love for pictures in me!  Photos help me remember special times/events and the special people!
24. Scentsy – it’s given me a safe alternative to candles since I never remember to blow them out! 

25. I’ve said it once & I’ll say it again – Dave’s love for Christmas & the his Holiday Spirit!
 26. My sweet boy…missing him today as he’s staying with his Grandma and Grandpa for a few days!

30 days of Thanksgiving

I am so thankful for the peace that I have in my heart this year compared to where I was last year at this time?  Couple of years of ups and downs, trials and life lessons.  It's brought me to a peaceful place and much happiness in my heart! 

So this year, as we start our tree of Thanksgiving and I start my 30 days of Thanksgiving (not sure if I'll keep them in sync) here are my first three days.
1.  I'm thankful I met Dave.

2. I'm thankful for my sweet Tanner!  I love that kid so so so much!  Couldn't possibly love him anymore than I already do!

3. I am thankful for the family that we have made.
