This week I am thankful for:
1-My health. My grandma has always said, "If you have your health, you have everything." She's so right. Never doubt your grandma. Especially when she's this darn cute.

2-My friends. I have a great group of friends. There isn't one type of person that I am friends with. Each one of my friends has their own unique thing/personality that they bring to our friendship. And how lucky am I that I have friends all over the country? California, Arizona, Colorado, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, South Carolina, Florida, Nevada, New York, etc. I am blessed.
3-I have a roof over my head. And I have owned two of them in the last 6.5 years. I read an article recently on people in Las Vegas who live in the underground tunnel/water system below the strip. Most of them are homeless b/c of the economy and that makes me sad. We were lucky that after Chad lost his job; we were able to hang on until things took a turn.

4-I live near the beach. How cool is that? I grew up being 2 and a half hours from the beach which meant beach trips were few and far between. (Especially b/c my mom hates the beach-sorry mom to call you out-but you do) Now it is practically in my back yard. Funny thing though about things being that close-you tend to take them for granted. I am going to try and not do that from now on.
5-Last but certainly not least. My cousin Tara. She's a mom of four, my nurse, advice go to woman, my "sister" the person I talk to on my way into work most mornings and she knows waaaaaay more intimitate details of my life than probably anyone else. I don't know if that's "lucky her or unlucky her" ha ha. She's given me the four most beautiful babies to love and if I had only one wish, it was that she lived down here. (B/c it is way too cold up in PA for me to ever live there!) Love you Tara!
