A Thankful Heart

Thursday, November 27, 2014


Wow what a year!  To think about where I was in life this time last year and where I am now - it is just crazy.  I have so many things to be thankful for this year and I just feel very blessed.  I left 2013 completely broken and hurt and I'm finishing off 2014 very blessed and excited for what is to come in the new year.  I really want to spill the details - but I'll hold my breath for now.

I am thankful for family.  They have been so amazing to me.  They are the best support system a girl could ask for.  My mom is a solid rock, she has my back like none other.  I have the best cousins in the world who really are like extended siblings.  Even though most of us are islands apart, the bond we share is so special and I'm thankful for each and every one of them.

I am thankful for Inspire Church.  Pastor Mike and his team have shared the love of God in such a real way that really helped me to get back on the right track.  Christina and the rest of the girls that I've connected with took me into their little church family and though I haven't seen them in months - they are always there as a listening ear.  Pastor Mike brought in amazing speakers, especially the sermon from Pastor Archer.  It has resonated with me all year.

I am thankful for friends.   Ally, Janel, Chelsi, Geneva and Missy - true friends are hard to come by, a lesson I had to learn over and over again as a teenager and young adult.  But the five of you - I know will always be my friends for life.  Thank you for putting up with my crazy shenanigans, my podagee mouth and everything else that makes me - well you know, me!

I am thankful for Kaimana.  He is the best dog in the world.  He drives me crazy.  Is still a little wild and crazy playful.  But he knows his momma.  He can sense how I feel and he knows exactly how to make me smile and laugh.  I'm so proud that he adjusted well to being an outside dog from an inside one when I moved from Ewa Beach to Aiea.  It was sad, but he is a happy pup!! And I definitely sneak him in inside and put him in a kennel to sleep with me some nights when I'm not waking up before the sun rises!

I am thankful for my job.  So blessed to work for an amazing company with some of the best benefits.  Hello 8.5% 403b match!  And that's just one of the many benefits.  Last year I sat for a national test to be a CDM, CFPP and this year I got my "official" card and now I am the President Elect of the ANFP Hawaii Chapter, which is exciting to be making my way in the professional field I'm in.

I am thankful for him.   There is so much to say.  Thinking back over the past year since January, so much has happened.  Being loved through all the flaws you point out in yourself to all the true flaws you have in life that you're working on every day - that is something special that I will always be grateful for.  I feel so blessed to have such a sweet man in my life.
