Happy Thanksgiving!

Well this year has just flown by! I can't believe we are already at Thanksgiving time..but I always love this time of year..I loved it even more when I drove to work this morning and the ChesaCampus was all lit up with those amazing lights..Man, they really go all out! So my hair is dark now..I must change it too much because I really can't tell the difference..but people tell me its very different..I like it though, and it was by MJ's request..

Being that it is Thanksgiving I thought I'd go over my Thankful list: ( In No Particular Order)

1) I'm Thankful to have an amazing family.. Especially around this holiday time I am thankful that I had a mom and dad who took me to church and allowed me to learn the true meaning of Christmas. I feel so sad for those kids who never get to go to church because their parents are too lazy to take them, or too crazy to take them. They miss out on the cool stories about Noah, Adam, Zaccheus, and more.. They also miss out on learning that even if they are around bad stuff, bad people and bad situations that there is always someone looking out for them, willing to help, and willing to listen..And to know they always have a friend in Jesus.

2) I'm thankful for a great boyfriend.. This has been an interesting year for MJ and I to say the least.. but we made it through it. He's my best friend, and even though most of the time I think I have him scratching his head about the things I do and say, he does love me..He's a patient man, and a sweet man, and to be with me, you have to have both of those qualities. Plus Payslee & Sawyer are crazy about him!

3) I'm thankful for a great job. I never thought I would enjoy anything after the radio business..and truth be told, I still miss it every single day, and every single time someone asks me about it. But I have realized that working for good people who actually want you to succeed at your job, and encourage you to do so is Amazing.. Not only that, but pay you well, reward you, and support you! Its been crazy, because in radio that is NON-existent. I've never had a boss that wanted me to go to training, or told me I do a good this has really been a blessing.

4) I'm thankful to have an Amazing relationship with the Lord, and an awesome Church home. Crossings has been such a blessing to me throughout the years..Especially during some of my darkest days when I lost my job. I was surrounded by so many smart people who offered guidance and wisdom about the path I was on..and what I should be doing.. I look back now and realize that the Lord always has a hand in what we are doing..whether you acknowledge that or not..He's always in charge. At the time I lost my job, I lost a big part of who I was and felt like I didn't even know what I was supposed to be doing anymore.. Terry Feix said to me, "KC Did you ever think that God probably already knew you were great at radio, so now he's prepping you for something else?".. wow..Never even considered that, but Now I'm so excited about it! I've met an awesome guy at Chesapeake named Robin Wood, and I can tell that he is also going to be very important to me, and he's already a blessing..I have so many people around me that say they dont' go to church because they don't believe in "organized religion" or "I'm smarter than most pastors"..and the one that is the worst to me is "Your God is an angry God, and I don't believe in him..he lets bad things happen to good people".. those are the folks I pray for every night because I know they are hurting, and lost.. it took me a LONG time to find Crossings, but man, it was worth the hunt!

5) I'm thankful for my sweet dogs. Payslee, Sawyer, and Rally make me laugh every day, and they are so loving and cute.. I love the fact that they are so sweet and make everyone else laugh too. Payslee has turned into an amazing therapy dog who always seems to know just what people need..and Sawyer is so patient and gentle with everyone who loves on him.. Rally is almost 14 now and not going as strong as he used to, but he's still kicking on!

Those are my biggies..Now for some Random things I'm thankful for..
1)That Rob Kardashian didn't win dancing with the stars! I'm so sick of that whole family! I don't want to hear anything else about them!
2)My Iphone 4s.. Siri is amazing..and so is the Iphone..Man I love that invention!
3)American Horror Story.. What a great show!
4) Spray Tans.. Who knew you could look so dark without having to lay in the sun and get cancer!
5) Good Hairdressers..without Nicole at Changes my hair would not be as fabulous!
6) Popcorn..who cares about the movie..give me the popcorn!
7) 30" computer monitors.. Its like looking at a big TV at work!
8) Thyroid Meds..My metabolism is -36%, and this is supposed to kick it up a notch!
9) Woofs Gone Wild--without this awesome store, I couldnt order Miss Payslee so many cute dresses!
10) New Friends..This has been a year of meeting new people and trying new things..and I'm so glad I did it!

Hope you all have an amazing Holiday, and be thankful for What God has given you..
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
