Happy Thanksgiving~

Best wishes to everyone for a wonderfully Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for so many things in my life and am looking forward to sitting down with my family and enjoying a meal tomorrow; albeit at a restaurant. Thanksgiving is not about the meal but those that you are surrounded with and I am sticking to that........

I try to remind myself often during the year of all the things that I am grateful for and try not to dwell on those things that I am not grateful for. I truly believe that it is the bad things that make us appreciate the good more. That doesn't mean that the pain or disappointment of the bad things is not painful, it just makes the good that much better. {I hope that made sense, I am only running on about 5 hours of sleep these days}

I am Grateful For...............
My Family, Shane, Jessica & Chase
A marriage that has lasted 17 years and that is still going strong
Parents who are always there for me and who are my biggest fans
Old friends and new friends
A business that allows me to be creative, and bring joy to others
The opportunities I have been given

As I get older I realize that the most important things in life are who I have with me and not what I have. While I do enjoy the finer things in life they are only made finer because of those you are able to enjoy them with! Sounds cliche but is so true.

Thank you to everyone that has touched my life and who have allowed me to touch theirs. It is an honor and a privilege to do what I do, and that is never lost on me. Best wishes again for a wonderful Thanksgiving, may you be surrounded by family and friends and be able to enjoy all your blessings!
