Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving week is upon us and I’ve been reflecting on the past ten months. A lot has happened in my life. Some things were life altering and tragic. Some were wonderful and uplifting.
A few people have been brought into my life and I know they were put there for a reason. One person understands what I’ve been going thru and the other person is a cheerleader for my career and overall great friend. I’m thankful for both of them. :) That’s not to say I’m not thankful for the rest of my online friends, because honestly you’ve all helped me when I felt I couldn’t go on.
I’m thankful for my family. Most importantly my DH. I thought for sure our marriage was doomed this year, but through tragedy we grew stronger. I’m so glad he stuck by me when I pushed him away.
Another thing I’m thankful for is my health.
Rumors are swirling that my job along with hundreds of other colleagues is on the line. There’s a good chance I may find myself in the unemployment line before Christmas. What a shitty way to end the year, but right now I’m thankful for the job.
In the midst of all the rumors I’m moving forward and taking charge of what I can control.
Happy Thanksgiving to all the people in the US and for those who aren’t celebrating, I wish you happiness.
Until next week!


  1. What a beautiful post Amber!
    This has been a turbulent year for many but yours was especially hard. You got through it with grace and strength and managed to accomplish so much. I'm sure the people in your life are very thankful to have you in their lives.

  2. Thanks Kat. 2011 will be better. I know it! :)

    Hugs, Tessie!

  3. Wow...lots to think about. Hang in there girl and happy holidays.

  4. Despite everything we go through, there is always something to be thankful for. It is at this time that we need to focus on the positive things because they help us get through the negative ones. I KNOW that 2011 is going to be a great year! Happy Thanksgiving Amber!

  5. I have been wishing the best for you, and have thought of you as a good, wonderful friend. You know 2011 will be better...and that's because 2+0+1+1=4. And four is good fortune. :P

    Never give up...never surrender. May the farce be with you and the wind at your back, and...oh, you get the picture. God bless you and yours and I am praying things will be beautiful for you from now on.
