Way behind

I am a bit of a ways behind. But so much to be thankful for. I will start where I left off.

Day 9: my parents hard work! Due to this they have given me a wonderful life, and had the opportunity to be at everything for me and spend so much valuable time with me. My dad
Spent 5 wonderful days with me and mom as well! So blessed!

Day 10- Showbox....enough said for anyone who knows me. This horse was more than a horse and there will always be a piece of my heart missing that he took with him when he left this earth that Sunday night in 2003. I to this day, almost 8 years later, always think of him and still cry.

Day 11- Coup...for showing me God had a plan for me. And everything does happen for a reason. And for teaching me patience and horsemanship!

Day 12- Western Lane...couldn't have asked for a better neighborhood and friends to grow up with!

Day 13- College Station- I love and will always love this town!

Day 14- the Harkeys...my second family! They are the best people and we are so lucky to have such wonderful next door neighbors that became our family! I love my then!

Day 15- My Job...for the first time after
College I am truly happy at my job! I can't complain! It gets demanding but is so rewarding!!! I love it!!

Day 16- My Brother, Tj. I was so happy the day he and my sister said I Do! It was so special and one of the best nights of my life to see my sister with so much happiness and joy in her life! I wish them a happy life together forever!!!

Day 17- K9 Literacy, a wonderful program helping kids! It was a remarkable experience to see Rocky's little boy transform over the 5 weeks we were with him! I made him a photo book of pictures with him and Rocky and motivational sayings hoping it would help him remember this
Time to to be confident. It was the least I could do , and it meant so much more
Than I could have ever imagined. He was so entirely grateful and excited. And wanted Rocky to read thru it with him! He could not wait to show his grandpa and mom who rocky was! And then I met his teacher and learned how
Much he has improved since he has been with rocky! Such a rewarding experience! We will be back in the spring!

Day 18- TEXAS A&M. Say what you will but I love this school for many reasons! It comes together in the moment of pain, and success. There is no other place like Aggieland! Gig em! And always remember 11.18.99. I was there that year, after the fall. The candlelight vigil, yell practice, and game. That changed my life forever and I believe changed me into an Aggie.

Day 19- My bridesmaids...I love every single on of them. They are all part of important part of my life and have been there for me throughout my relationship with Josh and God! I love these girls and could not imagine my special day without a single one of them

Day 20-XM radio for my Commute each day

Day 21-My Memaw. For always being there for me and supporting me no matter what.

Day 22- holiday season! I love this time of year! Time with family. Great food. Celebrations of our lord Jesus Christ! I can't wait to decorate for Christmas and get our first tree:):)

Day 23-My home! I love where I live and am blessed to be with such a awesome place to live. You can't pay for the view I have!:)

Almost done with us month! Hope everyone remembersTo always thank the man upstairs for everything in our life other than this month! I heard a great saying "what if all you had today is what you thanked God for yesterday?"

Happy Holidays!

Day 8

Today I am thankful to have such amazing neighbors! Today when I got home for work I had this amazing treat in my mailbox with a note from Mrs. Doris! My neighbors and her mom are the sweetest people and I am lucky to have them watching over me while Josh is gone and the two of us once he returns! I can't wait to try these yummy treats!

5,6,7!

Day 5- very thankful for my puppy dog Rocky. Anyone that knows me, knows my dog is my world. He has been by my side for the past 4 years. He was a gift from Josh before he moved away and it has been the best gift ever! He is such a neat dog!

Day 6- I am thankful for my lord Jesus Christ. He has blessed me with a wonderful life. He has definitely tested me and given me challenges, but through him all things are possible. And in the end, the journey is worth it to spend our life in eternity with him.

Day 7- I am thankful for Brazos Fellowship! This was the church Josh and I attended in College Station. This church changed our relationship spiritually and us as individuals. It is great to see what god can do! This church, and Pastor Will, will forever hold a special place in our hearts!!!!

Sorry I seem to be playing catch up every post!

Until tomorrow!

Day 3&4

What a week. It sure is making me realize what I'm thankful for. Get home last night and no water....jacked with or for an hr and nothing. Had to get ready at work :/ and then the hair dryer in locker rooms didn't work! All I can say is I am thankful for Fridays! So that is my day 3! Thankful for Fridays! It is the end of the work week and the start to the weekend! Good day Friday is!

Day 4: thankful for my fiancé! Josh has been by my side for 7 1/2 years! We have been through so much and grown so much over those years! I am so lucky to have found someone that has stuck by me and supports me and believes In me so much! He is my best friend and love of my life and I can't wait to go through this journey called
Life together forever! :)

Well I'm plum exhausted! It's a gossip girl, lay on the couch all night kind of evening!:)

Peace!

30 Days of Thankfulness!

So...it is the month of November, officially Fall, and officially colder weather, hopefully!The month Josh comes back from CO, & another month closer to the wedding! :) Lots of wonderful things to look forward to! Being that it is the month of Thanksgiving I decided to copy Sisters blog idea and write something I am thankful for Everyday! I missed Day 1 because I had no phone or internet last night....! So here it goes!

Day 1: I am thankful for the phone & wireless internet! Living out in the middle of nowhere I am already disconnected from the world, these things help me communicate with those I love and miss! It may seem like a materialistic thing, but to me it is a way of connection and I did not have that last night and missed talking to my parents, sister, and Josh! Hope that will be back on today! :)

Day 2: I am thankful for my family! Without them I would not be where I am today! We are a small family, and are a very close family. My sister is my best friend and mentor in so many ways! We weren't always so close when we were younger, but am so thankful for the friendship and bond we have formed since she left for college!She can help me through so much & is always there for advice on anything!! I am proud of her!

& My parents! I am truly blessed to have two amazing parents! I can literally say they are my best friends and I can talk to them about anything! I admire them for how they have managed to be my best friend and by biggest fear of disappointing! These two things have drove me to go after what I want, and know they will always be there for me!
I have a pretty awesome family and when we get together we have a good time! It is a time full of laughter! :)

I am caught up! These 30 days of Thankfulness is a great way to reflect & remember to not take the little things for granted! We need to be thankful for so much! Well busy days at the office! Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Until tomorrow,
