Turkey is stuffed and roasting, everything for the Big Dinner seems to be under control. It is such a beautiful day here in Alaska. After miserably rainy for a couple of days it is snowing again. What a great day to celebrate Thanksgiving and relax at home. And most importantly to be thankful for the wonderful, happy life we are living.
Most of all, I am thankful for J, My Better Half. He truly is my best friend, an awesome man who makes me happy every single day, and I know I can count on him no matter what.
I am also thankful for my family – Mom&Dad and Sister. They are wonderful folks, always there for me; even though they live far, far away they always are in my heart.
I have been blessed by having awesome Friends. Great people near and far, and always ready to cherish my day. Even though life has taken some of us far away from each other, friendships haven’t vanished. I can only hope that I am as great friend to them as they are to me.
Only a couple of weeks ago I started at a new Job. Finding a new job in this economics is always a blessing, and even more when I was able to move from a nice job to wonderful job; doing something that has a meaning and makes difference. It is scary but I actually look forward to going back to work after the holiday weekend.
Over the years I have been in a few close call situations, and that truly makes me to appreciate my good Health. I feel happy, energized and am in a good shape.
This year I have been also very busy with the school – over 30 credits while working full-time hasn’t always come easy. I am grateful for having J’s support, not only encouraging me but he has cooked a number of dinners while I have been drowning in the books and trying to catch up the homework, he has been reading my papers and giving comments. I am thankful for having had an Opportunity to get my classes done, and another degree is closer and closer every day.
Our furry kids - Sandy&Tassu – are always an endless source of joy and laughter. It is weird to be thankful for pets but these little furry buddies are part of our life.
Simply, I am very grateful for my Life. Every day is such a miracle, and a reason to wake up with a big smile on my face. Even the cloudy days in my life have always had the silver linings – I would not change any single day in my life. I love my life.
Last but definitely not the least, I want to wish the Happy, Safe and Blessed Thanksgiving to You and Your Family! Enjoy the time with your loved ones – if they are not physically with you, you always carry them in your heart. And say a little prayer to our troops serving our country, and can’t make home for this holiday. Please, pray for their safe return.
Blessings to You!
