Today is 11.11.11, an auspicious day, I’d say. It only happens once a century. I’m getting ready to second shoot a wedding with my friend Natalie, and before I rush out the door, I thought I’d share my week of thanks.
I think there are days when I wish I had this or that. But when I put into perspective all the things I am thankful for, all those little wants seem to quickly evaporate and disappear. So, what are YOU thankful for?
Day 5: I’m thankful for my cousin, Mercy, who is an amazing singer and musician. And over the last few years has become a great friend! We went on adventures in NYC a few years ago and it’s always a good time hanging out in New Bedford. She’s going to do great things, and you should DEFINITELY check out there album: http://www.mercybell.com/
Day 6: I’m thankful for our cozy little house. This time two years ago, we closed on our first home. After getting married, it was the second big step we took together. I’m so thankful we have a place to call our own.
Day 7: I’m thankful for Maggie, one of my best friends, my polar opposite, and someone who I know I’ll always be able to count on. We’ve known each other for 20 years, which is crazy when that’s most almost your entire life. Seriously, she’s the most thoughtful person I know, always remembering the little things like birthdays and anniversaries. Love you Mags!
Day 8: I’m thankful for Krystle, who has been my friend since our second year of college…almost 10 years! College would not have been the same without her! Even if we don’t talk all the time, we can always pick it up where we left off, even with many months in between. We always have so much fun together and she can always manage to make me laugh. (Remembering the churro incident at Disneyland 2 years ago!) Love ya OG! 😀
Day 9: Thankful for the inventor of NyQuil. Seriously, it’s been the only way I’ve been able to sleep and breathe at the same time the last two days. God bless you.
Day 10: I’m thankful for Charlene, a faithful friend from college who stayed in touch no matter the distance. We wrote letters to each other (good old handwritten letters) when I was studying abroad in France and she was serving in the Peace Corps in Kazakhstan. And now, we’re both married and keeping in touch between NYC and Texas! Love ya Char!
Day 11: I’m thankful for all the veterans (and those currently serving) who bravely serve our country to preserve our freedom. I’m especially thankful for my Granddaddy for his service to the Air Force, and my father-in-law for his service to the Army.
What are you most thankful for?
Happy Friday and 11.11.11!
