Happy Thanksgiving…

Dear readers — hugs to you all!!

This outfit was taken on March 10, 2011 — the day my man was returning from a 3 month long military training course.  I thought it would be appropriate to share these pictures today, because I remember being overwhelmed with happiness, gratitude and excitement at the fact that he was finally returning at last.  It may have been over half a year ago now, but I’m still thankful he’s here with me today. 🙂Imperial Princess

My First Coach!This year, I am most thankful for:

♥ My family –especially my siblings, my man, and my closest friends.  They really are irreplaceable, and I treasure and value my relationships with each and every one of them.  Even in moments of disagreement. 🙂

♥ The fact that God freed my pater from his pain this year, even though I never got to say a million things to him, maybe even “Sorry, you were right about a lot of things, wrong about some, but no matter what I really did love you.”

♥ Being able to find a job as a writer.  It has always been a dear dream of mine, and to see that it is finally coming true… makes me so happy.

***

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not;
remember that what you now have
was once among the things you only hoped for.”
——Epicurus

I wish you all a beautiful, happy and peaceful Thanksgiving evening!
