Aloha Friday #109

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What are you thankful for?

Well, besides some of the obvious blessings like my family, our health, and a job I love (which I’m returning back to in January) I’m also thankful for our baby swing. I’m not kidding! Sometimes it’s the only way I can get Kaila to sleep!

    I am Thankful for:

    *My kids, that they are healthy and happy

    *My boyfriend, he has been my rock and the greatest man I’ve ever met

    *My friends for holding me up when I was a single Mom.. AGAIN and 5 months pregnant

    *The chance I have at my “Ah-Ha” moment, even if it’s not realized by this magazine… I’m still going to continue on with the path.

    *My body, for it’s health, brain and ability to carry me through 6 healthy pregnancies, one miscarriage and surgery to remove an ovary. It’s been a blessing.

    *My blogging community! These women are so amazing!

    I am so very thankful for our Lord, Jesus Christ! I am also thankful for all the of the wonderful works that the Lord is doing in our lives. We have just moved in to an outstanding new home, are so blessed with our health for another year, have a career that allows me to help people every single day and more importantly, do that from home. I am so thankful for all that God has put in our lives.
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I am thankful for my wonderful husband, my fabulous children, and my friends both in real life and the terrific ones I have met through blogging that have been a real support to me during this very trying year (which is not over yet) and have always been there with a helping hand or words of kindness or a prayer when I needed it. It doesn’t get much better than that!
    Have a wonderful holiday everyone!!
    Blessings to you, Kailani, and your husband and beautiful girls!!
