Despite the fact that my laptop is in the shop and I am limited on my access to my photos (and photo editing software--gasp!), I can only tell you tonight that I am blessed.


I just have to thank God for surrounding me with the right people.

If you don't like sappy, you will probably want to stop reading right now... really...

I am emotional and in awe of those around me tonight... so bare with me.

My life is not perfect, nor are the people in it...but I have to tell you, they are GOODe people.

My husband is nothing short of amazing. Ladies and gentlemen--this man supports me to the core. He "gets" me. He loves me. He believes in me. He pushes me.

My family have always encouraged me. They have always envisioned a limitless world for me and instilled in me that I can do anything.

My friends are incredible. They understand my hectic schedule and love me anyway. They inspire my creativity. They show me God's hand in man.

My colleagues and industry allow me to work along side them and fuel my passion to bring people together to find solutions. From mentors to co-workers, I am impressed and honored to work with them daily.

I guess what I am trying to say is that truth be told, I am blessed.

And oh, so grateful.

Just sayin'

5 GOODe Thoughts:

It's always good to stop & take a personal inventory of our lives once in a while. It keeps us balanced & positive. So your "sappyness" doesn't bother me one bit. I'm uber happy for you that you have such a great support system surrounding you :)

Hi Cris!
I love your post! I think it's terrific that you have gratitude for the blessings in your life!!!
We should all express more gratitude for our blessings :)
Have a wonderful day tomorrow !

We don't call that sappy...we call it gratitude and it's important to keep in mind. Thanks for sharing, Cris. :)
