Thanksgiving is that special time of year to pause and express gratitude to everyone in your life who has been there through the good and difficult times and also appreciate what you have.

This year was quite special and as I look back I can only bow and say “Thank you God” for so many blessings!

I have been incredibly fortunate and have so many people to thank because they have been with me through thick & thin and always look out for me whether it is in person or at a distance.

I am thankful for…


You have been my #1 supporter in my life and in all my adventures around the world.

You NEVER fail me, all glory to you!

When times were tough and felt alone, you were there & lifted me up (and kicked me when needed).

I couldn’t ask for a better friend, confidant, counselor.

My family

What an interesting group of people we are (Latinos & proud. Loud & louder) and you know what? I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I know I’m the one who can’t stand still and has to be moving constantly but you always follow me & support me no matter where I go. For that I thank you & love you!

Don’t worry, I won’t go to space…yet 😉

My friends

What would I do or where would I be if it wasn’t for you all? Close or far away we’ve stuck together like crazy glue!

Your patience, trust, understanding, love and acceptance means everything to me.  (Hope it is for you too!)

Oh those hours on Skype, they are legendary!

We’ll have plenty of stories to tell when we get old, very old because I plan on living a long & fun-filled life 😉

My new friends

God knew what he was doing!

He put you in my path (and I in yours) for a reason: to become a better, wiser and stronger person and learn a lot from you!

Let me know how I can help you in return.

To the persons who left my life

It was a pleasure meeting you. I wish you nothing but the best life can offer you.

Thank you for all you taught me, it will never be forgotten.

2012 is coming to an end.

I look back and see how far I’ve come and how much I have accomplished; It was a fantastic year!

I really look forward to 2013, bring it on!

What about you? What are you thankful for?
