Tis the season for lots of food, elastic pants, cooler weather, and ohana. The season reminding us for being thankful of what we all have, even the little things we probably take for granted. I’ve seen a lot of Instagram and Facebook posts for what peole are thankful of, so here’s mine…
I’M GRATEFUL FOR….
waking up in the morning: Happy I get to wake up and spend another day with my family. Each day is a gift. I try to make each day count, freezing time with my kids on my camera and remembering their ‘first times…’
my husband: he keeps me laughing, lets me be a stay at home mom, hugs me when I need and always say the right things. (NO Pink, you’re not fat. NO you dont need make up, you look better without it. YES that last cookie is for you. SURPRISE, I got you some ice cream and a phone case. ) He makes me want to be a better person everyday.
my kids: they’re the best gifts I could ever have, and having them love me the way they do is the best feeling in the world. They keep me smiling and they always make me want to be the best mommy to them.
family time: all day just the family going out to eat, shop, or movies. No thinking about work or school, just us.
working weddings!: I know people always ask me how I can do it because its scary. It can be, but it gives me a rush. The best part of it is being with happy couples, happy people surrounding them, and hearing each of their vows. It doesn’t get old. It always reminds me of ours and how grateful I am for a great marriage!
my accident: I was in my 20s, typical girl clubbing and bar hopping. I guess enough was enough and I had a back breaking accident 12 years ago. I learned it was close to severing my spinal cord, which means I could’ve been paralized. The surgery, the healing, the time out opened up my eyes and put me back on the right path in life. The rods in my back is a constant reminder. I keep wondering if it wasn’t for that, would I still be single and bar hopping?
And sure, I’m also thankful for a lot more than above…like hair clips, maternity pants, anti-aging moisturizers, smart phones and wi-fi. haha!
Have a WONDERFUL HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! It’s a cheat day so forget counting calories. Eat up!
