Reasons to be thankful...

I have God in my life

The ability to see the light in spite of the darkness

Being someone folk can turn to and/or lean on

Knowing how to make a $1 of out 15 cents

I have a fantastic daughter who never fails to bring me love, happiness, and amazing moments of entertainment.

Having the ability to know when to hold or and when to let go

I have some awesome friends who are ride or die and I'm infinitely blessed for their presense in my life

Although I'm far from my immediate family, I know there's mad love there and we simply pick up where we left off

My health! Praise God for modern medicine, technology, and the will to stay strong

For the amazing experiences I'm having and knowing that life truly is for living

For Facebook for bringing some people back into my life

For having talent and using it instead of squandering it

I'm still gainfully employed with excellent health benefits

My Lil Lady's dad who just got her a brand new car. We may not always see eye to eye, but he's good to his daughter

For a president who truly does want to do good for his constituents

For love and it's radiating presense

For not allowing pride to get the best of me when I needed help; I asked for it

For being appreciated at work, home, and amongst my friends

For my first trip of 2009

Being able to recognize that I have much to be thankful for

Love to live; live to love!
