Give Thanks.

Happy Thanksgiving Lovies!!!

eat to your heart's content & feel as you should... BLESSED.

i hope you have so much to be thankful for. I'm thankful for so much:

*my amazing family.
*my faith.
*my brilliant boyfriend & our puppies.
*my incredible friends
(this includes each and every one of you reading this)
*my job.




but most of all this year, I'm thankful for my brother Marco. I know that this would be included in "my amazing family", but this year it means so much more that he gets to come home for Thanksgiving. My brother Marco is about to deploy for the third time to Iraq. He will leave before Christmas. And already I miss him.

A whole year. For the THIRD time. It's unfair. Why my brother, again? and then i look at everyone around me and realize each person is why. My brother has the greatest purpose. He will fight for you. for me. for our freedoms.

he is my hero. he is who i am most thankful for this year.

our family is surprising him by celebrating Christmas this Thanksgiving for him. We're very excited!


Enjoy your thanksgiving darlings!!!

I've never met anyone who had family overseas. You have such a great attitude about it, I would fall apart if my brother was there.

Thank you for both of you and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Micaela said...

Diana, thank you darling! it is NOT easy... you would think since this is going to be the THIRD time we will have to deal with him being over there... but oh i will fall apart. this i'm sure. hugs.
