Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! :)

A lot of people are putting together cute posts in which they lists things they're thankful for, but honestly (and unfortunately) I just don't seem to have the time to do that this year.

I'm working my entire Thanksgiving break. Including 10-4pm today.
11:30pm tonight - 6am tomorrow morning.
I'm working all day Saturday and all day Sunday.

But, I'm not really complaining. Honestly, I'm thankful I have two jobs and am able to make all the extra money that I truly need. 

I'm about to go get ready for work.

But, I just wanted to hop on real quick and tell all you followers than I'm thankful for everything you do. My blog wouldn't be anything with out you. Without your comments, your pages views, your lovely insight, and helpfulness... I'd be no where. Honestly, the blog sphere has given me a new home that I desperately needed. And I totally thank you all for that.

Especially all the new best friends I've gotten out of this. I'm thankful for you! 

One in particular I just MUST mention... is Brooke (Brooke-Reports). I don't know where I'd be without her. Even though we live in completely different states, she has become one of my bestest friends ever. I tell her more than I tell the people who surround me on a daily basis. She's constantly making me laugh, and wtf would I do without our BOY chats?! I'm so thankful that we stalked each other's goodreads pages and met. :)

And overall, I'm just thankful for being here today. For having what I have and the people who are around me. I'm thankful for the person I've become because I like her a lot. So thank you to everything and everyone who made me who I am today. I love my family, my friends, my boy, my animals, my books, authors, the blogsphere, music, art and everything in between. I'm thankful for it all.

And a quick side note - one time on an interview I was asked "Do you consider yourself lucky?" and I had to stop and think, but I said yes. Not in the literal sense that I win every lottery ticket I buy. But, I see myself as extremely lucky. I have a car to drive, a roof to live under, food to eat, a family who I absolutely adore, time and money to attend college, a boyfriend who loves me, animals who I can't live without, books that make me happy, friends who are there for me.... I have things that many of us take for granted so yeah, I consider myself lucky.

I hope you all have amazing day, because you deserve it. :)

Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. You and Brooke are seriously like... girl power dream team haha. I'll crawl onto twitter sometimes and see your convo's and you're like, so crazy enthusiastic with each other and just plain awesome. It's obvious you two <3 each other and it's so sweet to see such a bond between bloggers!!

    Such a brilliant and inspiring post, Jena! You nailed it in your last paragraph. We are all so lucky and fortunate for the things we do have in our lives. Especially when you compare those everyday comforts like clean water and a warm bed to people suffering daily in developing countries.
