Day 2 of giving thanks....

Today I am Thankful for ALL of you. My Friends and Family. Without you all where would I be? I know I wouldn't be who I am today without most of you and the experiences we have shared. So for my thanksgivings today I just want to say THANK YOU to all of you for being my friends.

Some of you are and always have been there for me during my roughest times. And some of you are new to my circle of friends but I see you all in the same circles and I am so thankful for all of you that are in that circle. I really hate to do it but I must quote my favorite song from my favorite Musical and say...

For Good from Wicked.....

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you

Because I knew you

I have been changed for good

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for

But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share

And none of it seems to matter anymore

Who can say if I've been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

And because I knew you...

I have been changed for good...

For todays Picture I decided to do ones of Cannon and his little buddy's Jack and Brayden. They have the workings to become life long friends and I love seeing them play together knowing all the memories they will make. It reminds me of all the wonderful people I have in my life when I see their freindship.

This last Halloween I was reminded of the Halloween parties you had at your house and how I so loved them and how I want to recreate that for my own kids. I remember watching scary movies and telling scary stories and sticking bras in the freezer.... lol! Confession: one time, you had a guess how many tootsie rolls were in the jar and you get to keep them game.... I cheated. I saw the number and guessed it exactly. I still feel a little bad about it now, but kinda think it's funny that I would even do something like that as a kid. Anyway, good times, right? Miss you!
