I truly believe we all should give thanks throughout the entire year. However, we (me included) get so caught up in the day to day struggles. It is easy to forget to count our blessings. Thanksgiving is a great time to take stock of all the gifts that we have in our lives.
Once, I heard someone say that by expressing thanks for what you already have, you are making room for more things for which to be grateful. (?) Sounds good to me. So, it is in that spirit that I would like to thank everyone who happens to find their way over here and is reading this. I hope it sparks an interest to express and release some of the things that you are grateful for as well.
Normally, I am not a list chick but, I remember Oprah saying a long time ago to "Just start a gratitude list and you will find it hard to stop." So, let's see Oprah. Why not? This is in no particular order...
Music- It's my work. It's my memory, It helps me dream and when I pray I usually find the answers in a song
My home- and all the homes I've had.
Callie- The sweetest soul I have ever known.
My work- which I think is a real blessing as it so much FUN!!!
My friends- The people that "get me" which is not an easy task!
Scott Cook- Bestest hubby! AND...because you are the bestest hubby, I hope the Steelers go all the way this year.
Huntington, Long Island-
San Antonio- Mexico without the need for a passport & you can drink the water. If you haven't been...GO! The Riverwalk is something else.
My parents- who's words of wisdom I still hear when I need them (and sometimes when I don't)
Sally Hope- a very gutsy life coach who helped me get started when I wanted to become one. She's also my cousin check her out.... sallyhope.com
MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC -
Mike Jennings- and all the help he has given me.
Swimming all year round
Toni and Kayla and little K. who are friends that "get me" and family but get their own line
Mike Hammond-My biz partner at "Top-Notch Talent" and for being so generous
Facebook- I would not have believed I'd know people throughout the world. But, I do. And friends like Paul from such far away places as Canada. (HA)
Every single person that has taken part in one of our contests, or events...Thank you soooo much
My students and my clients -Thank you beyond words
Skype students and clients too!!!
MY sister and her little family... furry and non furry members.

MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC
Being able to take decent photos again...and LOTS of them.Who would've thought? No need for film? Thank you digital age. Thank you Nikon
Wow, Oprah was right. You start one of these and you just can't stop. I haven't even gotten to hair gel and comfy couches yet. Or smart phones. Smart people. Google! Being in a country where I can chase every single one of my dreams. Cat litter that clumps. Nice neighbors...Did I mention Music?
Oh my gosh...I do have as much to be grateful for as Oprah...Everyone should do this. It doesn't even have to be big stuff. Look... warm socks on cold mornings, buy 1 get 1 half off specials....SEE?
So, now my original question...What are you Thankful for??
