Thankful Thursdays

I'm jumping on the band wagon here. I've seen many blogs do this and thought I should start because I think everyone should take a minute and think about what they are thankful for. Especially if you are going through a hard time and are hurts just a bit less if we stop and think about the good things in life.
A little side story real quick. I made my Thankful Thursdays badge with an apple blossom for a special reason. I love finding out what different things symbolize. And I found out that apple blossoms signify that better things are to come. Which I think fits so perfectly into my life right now, I just had to incorporate it in here somehow!
So here we go...I'm thankful for

having hope: After everything that has gone on this past year, it would have been so easy to lose hope in myself and in God. But no matter what, I kept that hope that "better things are to come." I have been sad, angry, bitter about everything I have been through, but I have not lost hope.
                 (Another apple blossom badge I made)

My doggies: They are my fur-babies and are my constant companions. I swear they look after me as much as I look after them. Whenever I need a cuddle or a hug, they are more than willing to give me love!

Of course Justin: I honestly do thank God for him everyday. I think he is the only one who can handle my craziness : ) He's up for anything (even if it is a chick flick. He doesn't like it but will do it for me!) and helps me when I have a crazy new hobby I want to take up.

Celebrity magazines: Is this weird that I'm thankful for them?! I look forward to the Friday when Us magazine shows up in the mail. And sometimes at the grocery store, I will buy a People or OK! magazine and feel so happy! It's the little things in life I suppose.

another obvious one, my family: both Justin's and mine. Even though we don't see each other all the time, it just feels comfortable whenever we get together.

my Canon camera: I don't think I will ever fully master what all my camera can do, but it has been my creative outlet and my new passion.

I have so much more I am thankful for but will save those for later weeks. What are you thankful for?

Happy Thursday my friends,
