200th Post-I'm Thankful

10:46 AM

I've seen this post going around a lot this week, and I decided to be a part of it. At first I was just going to copy and paste something I had written as a blog on myspace a few years ago, but now I realize that it doesn't exactly apply to where I am today. Instead of focusing on the things I'm thankful for I'm focusing on the people I'm thankful for.

*Don't worry I won't be too long winded.

My Hubby--I couldn't make it through some days without him. I love you babes!!

The strong women in my family. In this picture: my mom, my sister, and my niece. My mother has taught me that it's best for a woman to be strong. My sister has taught me that no matter what happens in your life to never give up. My niece has taught me that it is ok to be a sensitive person.

My best friend Carlos. I could not ask for a better friend/brother. He just knows me, words aren't needed. He's the rock star that can party at 10am after 1 hour of sleep..lol.

My niece and nephew. I used this picture because I think it is so cute!! I am thankful for my nephew because it proves I'm not adopted..haha..!! No seriously, he has taught me that you always have to protect your sibling.

Miriam & Kareem--seriously I don't know what I would do without these two. We will always be friends. I love you guys.

In the middle Min, my hubby's best friend, my 2nd husband...haha!! I am thankful that he is both our friend's despite the fact that we're the 'old married couple' now.

My brothers & sisters in laws. I'm thankful that they treated me like family from day 1.

*Caitlin has taught me that you don't have to share blood to think like sisters.

Matt-I had a better picture, but I couldn't resize it. This picture was taken in 2001. I'm thankful for all the advice, love, and experiences we have been through. You have taught me more about myself than I could ever have.

Grandpa. This picture was also taken in 2001. I am thankful to have had you in my life. Thankful that whatever decision I made I always made you proud.

Ok, enough before I cry!!! There are more people I wanted to include, but if I did this blog would be never ending!!! A special thank you to all of my family that I may not have mentioned- my mother & father in law, aunts, uncles, cousins (love ya Yari), & my brother in law Mike. The friends I didn't mention: Ana & Jeannie. And of course to all you beautiful blogger babes!! Thank you for reading!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
