- My wonderful husband who puts up with my moodiness and crazy ideas. This man is a saint, and I am truly blessed to have him in my life.
- My amazing son who is growing up too fast. I watched him find "himself" this year and accomplish some incredible things. He is sensitive, smart, respectful, a dreamer, hard working and loyal, and he is going to be a great husband (in about 15 years) to some lucky girl.
- My mom who will always be my closest friend and the person I turn to for guidance and to vent. She shows me that you are never too old for anything and deserve all the happiness that you now enjoy in your life.
- My brother who makes me so proud to be his sister everyday. He faced adversity and now has found peace and happiness. I am so glad that we are closer now than we have ever been.
- My son's other "family" who are some of the most incredible people I have ever met. This family loves my child as if he was one of them and both PV and myself feel so grateful that he (and us) has them to lean on.
- My body that has taken a few blows this year and keeps on going. Somehow I am always able to bounce back. Might not be back to where I want to be, but I am able to get up each morning, lace up my sneakers and do something.
- My mind that got a "workout" this year when I went back to work. It might not have been the right fit, but it gave me the confidence to start Real Bite Nutrition, become a freelance writer and meet 3 inspiring young women.
On this 2014 Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for
