Today, as with every day, I am incredibly thankful to be alive and well. I’m thankful for all of the love in my life, there are a lot of people out there who don’t have a life filled with love the way I do. I strive not to take it for granted. I’m thankful for my loving pets and that I make enough money to support and care for them. I’m thankful for my family and friends, for Mitchel and our healthy & happy home. I’m thankful for working a job that I love, and that I’m good at, that provides for me. I’m especially thankful for Christ and the sacrifice he made for us all. I’m thankful for God’s mercy and His grace.
And lastly, I’m thankful for all of you. Everyone who takes the time to read even one measly sentence on this blog of mine. I’m very lucky to live in an age where getting your writing out there to be read is easy to do. I write because somebody out there reads it and you all make me feel blessed, like I matter, and I want you all to know that you matter to me, too! Have a fantastic Thanksgiving and I hope your bellies are full and your cheeks are sore from smiling. =)
Happy Independence Day, American readers, and happy 4th of July, citizens of the world. Today we celebrate the signing of our Declaration of Independence and our freedom. I know we’re not supposed to talk about it, but the NSA is really impeding on our freedoms and privacy as a nation. I’ll take today to celebrate the good ole’ U.S. of A. and focus on the rights we are fighting for today [and everyday].
Stay safe, everyone, and enjoy your time off with your families [if you have time off today]!
I hope you all have a safe, happy, and joy-filled Easter today! For me, Easter is a religious time to celebrate the rising of Christ. Whatever Easter means to you, I hope you take a moment to enjoy the day, the people in it, and all the Reese’s eggs you can shove in your mouth!
I have a top 10 list of accomplishments that I would like to reach this year. Some are a bit lofty, some are a bit silly… all are things I want to strive for in 2013.
There you have it, folks… the 10 things I plan for my 2013 to be about. It doesn’t necessarily mean the year will go that way, but it’s good to have a plan to start with, even if you stray from it!
How was your holiday, reader? I hope you had plenty of time to enjoy your family, friends, and a little champagne! I really got to enjoy spending time with my parents and brother… with my brother going to school up in Chicago, we rarely get to spend extended periods of time together. It was such a blessing.
Now it’s back to the old grind! Thank goodness I actually LOVE my job and coworkers, otherwise I’d be in some real pain coming back after my mini-holiday.
I got a Nexus 7 for Christmas!! And I’m writing this entire entry from it… just wanted to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!! Love, Sarah, Mitchel, Franklin, and the kitties!

This year I am most thankful for my dad being home for the holidays! It has been 2-3 years since he’s been home. Most of the time he’s in Afghanistan fighting the good fight! We are so lucky to have today with my father! We are all so proud of him for what he does everyday! He is a great man and a great leader in Christ! And he is who I am most thankful for this year! I love you, dad!
I hope everyone celebrating today has a fantastic day filled with family, love, and happiness! You are all in my thoughts and prayers this holiday season!
Thank you for riding in your really beautiful yachts all that way and
pilfering using your five finger discount to acquire the “Free world”.
No, really… I have today off of work because of you!! You rock!
PS: I’m not really this rude. Just trying to be a bit clever and tongue-in-cheek. haha
