Giving Thanks

Since Thanksgiving is fast approaching, I think it's important to step back and count your blessings. I thought it would be good for my soul to write a list for all of the things I'm thankful for.

I am thankful for....

- A roof over my head and food in my belly

- Coffee

- A family that really understands who I am and what I'm about it - and they still love me.

- Coldplay's new album Mylo Xyloto, even if I can't pronounce it.

-Sly, a sister that is more than a sister, more than a friend, but almost a soulmate - who loves me more than anyone could love a person, even with all my flaws.

- The Real Housewives on Bravo, well I'm actually thankful for everything on Bravo - it's like an addiction that I do not want to go to rehab for.

- A job that gives me a 3 day weekend which allows me to write this blog.

- Dim Sum, if you have not had an amazing meal of Dim Sum - it should be on your to-do list.

- Friends - Some friends I've recently met and fell in love with while some I've known since I was 5 years old. Always there when I need them.

- Seinfeld reruns

- Lonnie and Kane - the two best dogs a girl coud ask for.

- Wisdom - to learn to walk away or let go of things that are not good for me - I may not always get it the first time, but I'm learning to make the best choices for me. It only took 26 years.

- Pinterest

- Making mistakes that teach me lessons and give me wisdom.

- the color purple

- celebrity gossip

- macaroni and cheese

- Christmas

- GB - for loving me like a real man should, for supporting me even when I make a mistake, and for making laugh every day.

There are thousands of more things I'm thankful but I don't want to keep you here all day.

I'd love to hear from you. What are you thankful for?


  1. I love you sissy. I am so thankful for you!

  2. Countless Miller Lites, fried bar food, homes that welcome you with open matter what kind of shape you're in...I am thankful for friendships that help you to heal and strengthen your soul when it is feeling a bit beat up :o) I love you Ash!!
