So on this Wednesday before Thanksgiving I am thinking about all of the things that I am truly thankful for.. God has sent me a lot of blessing this year and I am not one to look over that.. I know how lucky I am so I want to take the time to say how grateful I am.
My Health- If you can wake up every morning and open your eyes and look around, or walk across the floor and take a deep breath, then be grateful! Think of all of the people out there who are suffering.. I am so blessed to have my health.
My House- God brought an angel into my life this year named Adam Grobben. I will forever be thankful to him for giving me this amazing home. I feel safe and happy here. There are so many people who are living on the street, who have no home and no place to go. There are so many people who dont have a roof over their head and I do. I am so blessed to have my home.
My Family- I have the best family in the world! My mom who is so kind, warm, loving, accepting and who has taught me to be the woman I am. My dad who is so protective, so hard working, such a loving, caring man. He has taught me the importance of giving back to those you love. My sister who is so beautiful, so strong willed, so sensitive and so smart. She has taught me about the strength within myself. My aunts and uncles and my cousins all have my back. They support and love me for me. I am so blessed to have my family!
My Friends- My second family. I dont think anyone has friends who take care of them the way my friends do with me. These people have come together from different places, with different ideas and different paths and they have formed a family. This is what I love about human nature! I am especially thankful to:
Brandon Goers- who helped me to move back down to Utah. I would not be where I am right now without him. He is my brother, he is my soul mate and he will always be in my life.
Jenna Burnam- who lived with me this past year, who went on this amazing adventure with me and came out a stronger person because of it. I am so grateful for her! I know we will remin friends even states away!
Chris Sugden- who quickly became one of my best friends after I moved down here. He gives me insight, energy, love.. He has such a great way at looking at life. Whenever im down I talk to him and instantly feel better!
Adam Grobben- Of course this man stole my heart this year! He has that effect on everyone. His energy is intoxicating. His heart is so big. Since moving in I have cried so many times because he is so giving and so caring to me and every person he meets. If I could pick someone for my future husband to be like it would be him but the sad thing is there are no other Adam Grobbens out there..
Sparkey- is my other half. He is gone until Sunday visiting his family and I am so lost without him! Since I have moved in I havent gone a day without seeing him. Last night I really didnt know what to do with myself. He makes me laugh, he has such a warm nature and he loves with all of his heart.
Tasha- I am so thankful I reconnected with her. After our ups and our downs we came out realizing all of that happened because we cared about each other so much. She is me in so many ways and she is the person I go to when I need to know that im not alone. When I need to know there is another person out there by my side thinking and feeling on my level.
Tommy- Meeting Tommy this summer was one of the highlights of my year. He is my little light of sunshine! He is so funny, and so supportive and so understanding! I cant tell you how much he means to me.
Daniel, Jack and Justin- The three musketeers make me laugh. Each one of them is always so willing to go out of their way and help me when I need it. Love me when I need it. And just be there for me. Plus they are all FUN! Get the party started with these three!
Randy and Sean- The little married couple who I dont see as much anymore and yet they are two people who I know would have my back with anything! If I were stranded in the middle of the night these two would be the ones who would help me in an instant even if we hadnt spoken in a month! They would give their last dime to someone they loved, they would find a way to help anyone and I know God is going to bless them with so much because of it.
Jesse- He is a constant in my life. No matter if we are talking every day or every other month. He is someone that I dont have doubts ever that he loves me and will always be my friend.
Claude- The sweetest man. Such a big heart. Such an intelligent man who thinks so logically(which is the total opposite of me). He would give anyone a helping hand. I love him!
Nic and Jeff- My cuddle bugs. They give so much love! You cant say a bad word about them.
Klint- EVERYONE loves Klint! He is the best! He makes a room light up! Im so glad I have been able to get to know him more this year and call him one of my good friends!
Megan- She will always be the girl that I look up to. She is smart, she is sweet and fun to be around! I have so much respect and love for her. She has always and will always be there and I dont feel like I can ever tell her how much she means to me.
Casey and Nic- Two of the funniest people! Again they would always have my back and I could call them with anything even if we hadnt talked in a week. Big, big hearts!
There are so many others- People I have met this year, people I have known for years. Each one of you brings something to my life! Each one of you I love and would be there for in an instant!
Ok this post turned a lot longer than I intended it but as I was writing about people I kept thinking about more that I couldnt possibly leave out! And there are even more that I am thinking about now! Basically I am very lucky! I love each and everyone of you and I couldnt ask for a better life! :) Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving everyone!
