Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!  I am thankful for each and every one of you!  I am also especially thankful for my children, family, and friends.  At times, as much as we try to forgive and forget and be happy, sometimes we need an extra push to make it through the day and it is those that love and care for us who help us get through dreary days and make us see the beauty in every moment.  Be extremely thankful today; as some people have no one to lean on or turn to.  Help us give without expecting in return and be thankful for every moment in life. ~ Determined D.


What are you Thankful for?

Over the past several months, I have been extremely lucky to have worked with some great people, I truly feel special and of course thankful.  I am also thankful for my determination and motivation.  I like to think that I always try to my best and put my best foot forward.  I also thank those that support me and are next to me routing me on.  And, those that have strong spirits and contagious positive attitudes!  I reached out to some of my favorite women to see what they are most thankful for this Thanksgiving:

I present Melina Druga of P.O.V. ~ I am personally thankful for Melina for answering and being patient with all of my questions about writing books, etc.  She has given me some great advice and has also allowed me to publish a few articles on her site. Melina is thankful for ~ "My grandmother died this year.  I am thankful to have had her in my life for as long as I did.  She is missed." P.O.V. 

I present Jennifer Peele of AMothersFitness2Love ~ Another great inspirational woman.  Jennifer is extremely fitness conscious and has a great blog and fitness title of ~ Beach Body Consultant!  I am thankful for Jennifer for supporting my efforts and sharing my ideas with her readers.  I also look forward to her helping me in the near future with weight loss, diet, and exercise. Jennifer is thankful for ~ " I am thankful for God blessing me with such a wonderful husband and with the cutest baby! I am also thankful for all the challenges I have faced this past year because it has only made me stronger."  AMother'sFitness2Love

I present Sharon Messier of Avon ~  Ms. Messier is my aunt :).  I am thankful for all of her advice, personally and professionally.  She is a strong spirited entrepreneurial woman with a fearless attitude. I admire her ability to keep on moving forward with all of her ventures.  I also thank her very much for the great prize that she donated to Got Fat?.  While she had a lot to be thankful for (many many lines), I chose one of my favorites ~ "I am grateful that my three grandchildren have the best mommies and daddies. I am grateful for every moment I get to spend with my grandchildren. I love their hugs, kisses, stubbornness at times...even their defiance. They are here to teach each of us a lesson. And they are here to give their parents character....gray hair and wrinkles!" AVON

I present Rachel Pisano of TwoBoys&ALady ~ Rachel is a wonderful person.  Always so sweet and helpful.  Any time that I need help with something blog related she has the answer.  She also knows how to make a mommy look and feel sexy, check out her smokey eye look.  Rachel is thankful for ~ I am thankful for the unplanned. For so long I have tried to meticulously control every little aspect of my life, but the past few years have taught me that we can plan all we want but sometimes life has its own plans for us. It is in that spirit my greatest joys and accomplishments have evolved-- from meeting my husband, to meeting the love of my life, my son, to starting my blog.  I am very grateful for all that I have been blessed with, anticipated or not." Two Boys & A Lady
