I’m not exactly a bible-thumper, but I do believe in God, and think He plays a starring role in my life.  I believe things have worked out as such to lead me where I am today; thanks to Him.  I probably don’t give enough thanks for things big and small.

So, I’d like to take a moment to do just that—and encourage you to do the same.

Thank God for true friends that will stand by you through thick and thin, and don’t allow outside drama or petty things get in the way of that.

Thank God for family, who have always supported me, and picked me up when I was at my lowest points in life, and cheered the loudest during my successes.

Thank God for our military, police, firefighters and EMTs who make the career choice to put themselves in precarious positions to protect our country and communities.

Thank God for dogs.  The excitement shown when I return home after each workday never gets old.

Thank God for spandex-infused denim, as it prevents me from having to lay on my back on the bed to zip up my jeans.

And finally, thank God for a career that allows me to be creative, write, and talk with people.  Life is good.
