Happy Turkey Eve

I was hoping to jump out of bed and forget that yesterday was chemo, but that wasn't the case today. When I woke up, I felt like I'd been in a fender bender. You know, one of those wrecks that hurts like hell but you can't see any damage? That was me today. Tonight I took a nice long bath and I'm finally starting to feel better.

Over these past few years, my list of things to be thankful for has grown out of control. Life, Love, Laughter are some of my favorites. I hope you've taken the time to appreciate all those things you are grateful for as well. If I haven't told you lately, I'm THANKFUL for all of you. My friends, family, blog stalkers...

Tomorrow we'll be spending the holiday with Rick's family at his sister Vickie's house. As usual, I'm looking forward to turkey, cranberries and pumpkin pie. I also look forward to leftovers which is why I'm cooking a turkey at home too!

A few weeks ago, Amy bought me a book at Starbucks called Five (Where will you be 5 years from now?) I'm hoping my answer will be "Right here in front of the computer still writing this blog and dreaming big". I would like to share a little bit of it with you: Live your life on PURPOSE. The best day of your life is the day on which you decide your life is your own. No one to lean on, rely on or blame. The gift of life is yours, it is an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. Life is about the choices you make-so choose wisely.

If you're looking for the perfect gift for someone you love...this book is it. It's hard not to keep pushing forward and living your dream when you've read these pages.

Gobble, Gobble...
