Thankfulness [often forgotten but always needed]

I know I'm a bit late on this topic since we celebrated Thanksgiving a mere two months ago, but I feel the need to still express myself. This last Thanksgiving was a memorable one, but also a special one. Thanksgiving is that one day of the year in which we are expected to express thanks and gratitude. However, I realized this last year that thankfulness is something that should be expressed ALL year long, not just on Thanksgiving. This last year has brought upon many happy memories, laughs, sorrows, changes, endings, beginnings and so much more. I have learned that I need to be thankful and have words of gratitude all year long. I feel blessed beyond measure and I thank the Lord for his merciful love and grace. I feel especially blessed for my incredibly loving, caring, self-less, compassionate, beautiful family. My parents and all 5 siblings are all the best and I feel lucky to be a part of my family. So, don't forget your words of thankfulness and everyday is a perfect day to express words of gratitude.

Happy New Year--2014

My oh my, have I been such a terrible blogger. I think the last time I posted on here was over a year ago. Well, let's just say life gets a bit...well...hectic [& crazy]. Honestly though, where does time go?!? As we embark on yet another new year, I have set yet anther set of goals for myself. Did I reach my goals from last year..hmm, well maybe. However, I'm not quite sure I even remember what they were [probably the same ones I wrote again for this year]. Nonetheless, I am determined, re-energized, excited and motivated to wipe the slate clean and re-boot myself to be better at accomplishing some of the goals for this next year. Overall, I'd like to focus on embracing life as it comes, worrying less, enjoying more, laughing often, reading more, moving forward [not backward] and trying to be the best person I can be. Oh, and I forgot...I hope to write more on here than I did last year [which looks like I already beat that]. Cheers to a new year!
