On this day set aside for giving thanks in the USA, I want to take a moment and reflect on some things that have made me happy this past year. It’s been a difficult year, but soooo much to bet thankful for!
On a personal note, I’m thankful my family is happy, healthy and doing well. I’m blessed to have such an incredible network of close friends who have been my emotional rock and during my recovery really taken care of me in the most literal of ways. I’m happy I’ve had another year with my Not McG, my partner, my supporter, my BFF. I truly could not have made it through my year without them all. Forever grateful.
In this world of social media, I’m amazed that it’s so easy to make friends around the globe and feel so close. This past year I’ve also leaned on an online Ohana that have been instrumental in helping me keep my spirits up, my sanity semi-together (heh) and the kick in the pants when needed. I would be remiss if I didn’t give a special thanks to my girls: @kimphin1, @h50JunkDrawer (steph), @glbali, @lahagela, @heymomo, @crumpet_B, @heyD50, @rainycali, @westy5oh, @mymaximus, @aliciagecko, @melmelika & @pnwgal <<–My life would have so much less shine and luster without you amazing and wonderful ladies!
From there I could list friends who have provided technical advice and support (@neropatti, @bookemdanno_net, @sabrinanthesand, @rocsfan) and an innumerable listing of people who keep my blog alive with their twitter RT’s, Pinterest pinnings, FB shares, Tumblr reblogs, comments and participation. Do you know how wonderful you all are??
I am grateful for each of you who have made H50BAMF rewarding and fun to keep up with.
Regardless of today being a national Holiday for the USA, it is also #ThankfulThursday. Tell me something you are thankful for. It can be meaningful, superficial or silly….all of that makes our worlds safe, fun and rewarding.
“What are you thankful for??”
