African Hips Don't Lie

Thank you for the music

Dear friends,

I do not feel I was able to capture all I am thankful for successfully at my Thanksgiving function….. too much emotion on the day, so let me say it here.

I am thankful for a wonderful, supportive, affectionate and loving husband. I love that he is MY husband, that he wears MY ring proudly and that he fights and works so hard for our future. I love that he has taken on the challenge which is me and that he chooses me above all things. I love him very much.

I am thankful for each of my children. Nic, Kevin, Liam, Victoria, Douglas and Jenna. Each one brings a different dimension of delight to my life and our lives are full of funny stories and experiences we have shared » good and bad. As far as ‘step’ (I hate that word) families go, we doing just dandy and I am proud of them all, love them all and thankful for them individually.

I am thankful that after six months of utter torture I asked for a transfer and chose to move where I did. I am once again in a happy space at work although I am working very hard. I am really grateful not to hate going to work anymore.

I am thankful for a home I love. It is crumbling around me with maintenance and ownership issues and I may or may not be able to stay here ….the future is unclear, but it has served me well. It was here, in the spirit of the wind that I did find my soul.

I am thankful for friendships, kichel and the fan in my room. I am thankful for hugs and kisses…. bubble bath and exfoliating scrub.

I am thankful that I now share my Ouma Chrissie’s name, for the nights when Kev makes supper and the days where Liam’s school doesn’t phone.

I am thankful for people who love me and who came to my rescue when I needed it. I am thankful for days where it is colder and when my car starts first time.

I am thankful for ice cream, Strawberry Dacquiries and custard slices. I am thankful for the smell of vanilla and that I have a full time domestic helper.

I am thankful for people who did not give up on me, helicopter trips to heaven and the few days lately where I open my eyes and see my husband.

I am thankful for tears that cleanse the soul, I am thankful for my Blackberry Torch, I am thankful for my family and my in law family.

I am thankful for funny kids, with depth and compassion. I am thankful for cupcakes and yellow roses.

I am thankful that my husband holding my hand makes everything okay in this world. I am thankful that I have loved so deeply that parting did bring great sorrow. I am thankful for memories and music.

I am thankful for the colour purple. I am thankful for books and magazines and the ability to read.

I am thankful for days that isn’t dark and I am especially thankful for the moments I get through without harming myself.

I am thankful for fresh bread, butro and Strawberry Pops. I am thankful for text messages, email and blogging. I am thankful for days my Mom is not in pain and for days when my sister has all she needs.

I am thankful for picnics, the theatre and dinners in fanTy restaurants. I am thankful for haircuts, lotions and potions and long baths.

I am thankful for the laughter of our children and their acceptance of the madness which is us. I am thankful for bed time and fun times and blessings.

I am thankful for manicures, pedicures and eye brow waxes. I am thankful for friends that causes your spirit to dance. I am thanful for those who bring understanding and encouragement to my life.

I am thankful to all who have shown love and kindness to my husband and children. I am thankful that even on the darkest night, a candle glows.

I am thankful….. for life.

I wish you enough,
