thankful Thursday...

I know I missed one...I guess that was bound to happen eventually...but I will pick up and start anew! I haven't done very well with my scrappin goal, but I will be posting some stuff soon. We have just been really busy with summer and working and well, life. Since I missed last week I think I will post ten things, wink.

...Saturday afternoon movie...
...berry-limeade...
...lazy Sunday mornings...

I have been doing some thinking lately. Could you smell the smoke? I am so thankful for my family. Kenny and I have faced some very challenging things this year, fortunately we have each other lean on and get through the things life throws at you sometimes. Breanna is our joy in life, she is truly a gift from God and we thank him everyday. We are also very lucky to have our extended families. Love that my Mom and Bob took their first vacation ever, so glad they are embracing this new time in their lives. Praying for Kenny's Mom and Dad, they are facing some challenges too, but together we will pull through these things and be a stronger family in the end. Love my nephews and the young men they are. Their Mother would be so proud of them and the way they are standing together, I am definitely proud of them. They are strong young men and also gifts from God, I am very lucky to be their Aunt! I am truly blessed to have the family I do. It is the family I always wanted growing up.
My friends bring so much joy to my life. Each of them have their own special gifts, Stephanie has become more to me then just a BFF, she is family. She is someone I look to for inspiration, she is an amazing woman who is a phenomenal force. She is dedicated, loyal, and so caring for the people in her life. Nita has always been like a sister, and I am so happy that she is starting to find herself again. I hate watching friends and family go through difficulties, but I know she will be a stronger person in the end. I miss seeing Kristy, but sometimes life takes us in different directions, but she is someone I can pick right up where we left off. I am so excited that she will be welcoming a new baby this year. Can't wait to meet this new little life. Jennifer, someone I have been friends with now for 12 years, will be moving back to Ocala this year. I cannot wait for her to be back. I have missed her. I love that she is moving her family back and we will be able to spend time together.

I realize this has been a long post, that's what happens when I start thinking. I am also thankful that I have this blog to share my thoughts.
