Thankful Thursday, 8.16.12


Please show some love & post the button or link back to First Day of My Life :) 

Despite the craziness of the world, take a second to sit back and give thanks. When you truly take a moment to sit back, you will realize how blessed you are.

In the midst of chaos and lots of decision making, I am thankful that those I hold near and dear have only my best interest & happiness at heart.

I am thankful for a family who loves unconditionally & for teaching me the tools so that I can be the role model I need to be for my future family.

I am thankful for old photos - blasts from the past!
Can you tell who I am? :)

I am thankful for afternoon thunderstorms that leave us without electricity. Something about that screams romance.

I am thankful for a patient lady that has been training me...there is so much to take in & learn.

I am thankful for V's soccer team winning first place in his Tuesday league...woohoo! (Makes him a happy camper, too!)

I am thankful for my blog...for having a place to call my own to be creative, tell stories, share my of all - make friends <3
