Stuffed with {MORE} Thankful thoughts….


On this bitter cold Sunday night, as I sit here with my hunnie, surrounded by my numerous forms of technology ( iPad, laptop, school tablet), I can’t help but also join in the sharing of all the things to be thankful for…

1.)  First, I am thankful for my best friend and love of my life, Anthony. I couldn’t ask for a better boyfriend. He is so loving and supportive and listens to me whenever I need him. ( And I LOVE to talk) He bends over backwards for me and always goes along with some silly things I want to do. I truly don’t know what I would do without him.

2.) My Parents, I could easily argue with many people that I am the luckiest girl in the world when it comes down to parents. I have the greatest parents EVER. They have always been behind me and supported me through all of my adventures in life.(Even when I decided to move to Hawaii) They are two of the most kind, caring, and compassionate people on this earth and I am truly blessed to have them as my parents. They are selfless and would do anything for anyone, I don’t know many people like them. I am a true Daddy’s girl at heart, but Big Deb is my best friend. I’m an only child, so needless to say I was (am) SPOILED!

They are TRUE old Italians that believe the more the merrier. As a child, when my parents were at work, I was taken care of by Nan and Pop. My bond with them continues to grow stronger each day. We spend many Sunday mornings at the diner then off to the mall shopping or stopping for coffee. They have 8 grandchildren, but everyone knows that I’m their favorite :)

 4.) Hawaii: I am thankful for the opportunity to live in beautiful Hawaii. It was an unbelievable experience that has forever changed my life. It is the most gorgeous place in the world and thousands of people vacation to the place I was so fortunate to call home. It truly is my happy place.

5.) Kaimana: I am SO thankful for this handsome little guy. He is the sweetest little bud and SO smart. He knows when I’m sad and can always make me feel better. Even though he didn’t make the big move to the city with us, he is still one of the most important people ( I said it..) to me. He has truly made me come to realize that I think I like animals better than dogs!

6.) My Best Friends: Over the years I have lived many places and had many jobs..due to this I befriended many people. Some I have lost touch with, others I could not imagine my life without. Between high school, college, living in London and Hawaii, and numerous jobs along the way I have developed a few circles of people I would not be able to live without. My girlfriends keep me sane and help me survive those times when I need them. I can’t think of anything they wouldn’t do for me, or I would do for them.

7.) My Grade Partners: I wouldn’t want to imagine not having these two amazing, inspiring, supportive ladies as my grade partners. They are not just my colleagues, but have become two of my very best friends. They see me ( and deal with me) in my craziest moods. They help me and listen when I just want to complain. They make me laugh, and laugh at me. They are two of the best teachers that I know and have taught me so much. I am truly thankful for them, more than they know!

8.) LIFE:  I am thankful for life and the opportunities I have been given. I truly am one very lucky girl.  I have been blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life. I am thankful for my amazing family, sports, surfing, the beach, teaching, COFFE, Hawaii FIVE –0 and MAC Lipgloss {guilty pleasure} I am thankful to have a camera to capture LIFE’s most important moments. I am thankful for the ability to run every day and wake up next to the one I love.


I will leave you on that note, sorry for the 900 pictures, but I love taking pictures..they remind you of the good times you have to be thankful for.
Take the time not only this week, but more often to think of all the reasons you are thankful and how lucky you are, I know I am going to!
 
Have a great Monday!
