Thankful

Oh do I have a lot to be thankful for ...

The list is long but I want to take this opportunity to address each of you. My friends the world over. With out y'all this year would have been a struggle beyond any I've ever known.

Our year began looking like this ...



But thank to the love, support, and generosity of family and friends like y'al,l we now can be thankful it looks like this ...


From my family to your, let me carve off a large slice of gratitude and serve it to all of you that helped to transform this year into one to be truly thankful for. House payments and all, I never imagined that we would be this far removed from that devastating day. I only hope each of you are as blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Travis, I've been thinking about you a lot as the holidays roll around, especially because your tragedy happened two days after mine. I think I'll always remember you in that context.

I'm so happy that things have turned around for you.

I am so pleased that you are all back on your feet, and I still smile when I think of the indestructable shag pile carpet. Your new house looks lovely

Oh my Travis.. Sorry to hear you had to go through this. So happy though that you have pulled through the dark and came out seeing the sun and rainbows once more.

Hello my friend! Long time no see. It has almost been a year since I have blogged. Stopping by to say hello and get my feet wet again with blogging. Sure missed my visits with you.
Take care,
Titania
