Today I Am Grateful..

I am a few days late but decided I needed and wanted to do this again as I wake each morning with a Heart filled with Gratitude.

Day 1: I Am Grateful for every moment, every hug, every kiss, every smile and tear that Jim and I shared over our 14+ years together…it was an amazing journey of ups and downs, twists, turns and detours…but together, we lived an amazing life…so I’m Grateful for My Jim…for our time together and the memories I get to hold on to……all the while feeling his Spirit Live on my Heart and Soul ❤️🙏

Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, my second without Jim, will be difficult and very different for me, again.

There is no turkey on the Weber….no pipe smoke wafting in through the window. No sunrise mimosas on the beach. No delivering baked goods to the base……..these are my memories of Thanksgiving past. Ones I am Grateful for.

Today, new memories will be made. Today I’m Thankful to spend this Thanksgiving with a crew of amazing young people and their families…..meaning lots of little ones!!! I am Grateful.

I will shed my tears, but they will be shed with a Grateful heart……for I am Blessed with a Love that transcends time and space. Yes I mourn what is lost, but I also celebrate.

I am Thankful. I Am Blessed.

“I continue to open my heart to the world, a heart that though still broken, is coming back together.”

Happy Thanksgiving 🙏


This Thanksgiving will be difficult and very different for me. But I’m also aware of how incredibly Blessed I am. I will shed my tears, but they will be shed with a Grateful heart……for I am Blessed with a Love that transcends time and space. Yes I mourn, but I also celebrate.

So, this Thanksgiving, I will be surrounded by my son and his extended family. I will be embraced and comforted. Together we will share a meal, remember those not with us, share and make memories….and we will be Thankful.

I am Thankful for all of you. Your kind words, thoughts and prayers let me know I’m not alone while I navigate these uncharted waters I find myself in. My emotions, they ride the waves, and I let them flow. My pain is real, but my love is stronger ❤️

“I am opening my heart to the world, a heart that is slowly coming back together”

Love You Husband ❤️
