Happy Thanksgiving & Ten Things I'm Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving Bella's! In the spirit of the holiday, I thought I'd share 10 of the many things that I'm thankful for...so here it goes:
  1. God's mercy, grace, and faithfulness
  2. Waking up to see another wonderful day
  3. My Family
  4. My Besties
  5. The Haters (all their efforts only serve to motivate me to be a better me)
  6. The Good Times (all the memories that I have with my family and friends. Especially the ones I have of a couple of family members that passed away last year)
  7. The rough times (that have only served to make me a stronger and better person. I've definitely been through some things, and seen some mayhem and foolishness over the past year. Anybody out there seen Diary of a Mad Black Woman? If so, do you remember the part where Helen says how sometimes trying to get through difficult circumstances on a day by day basis seemed overwhelming, and she had to take it moment by moment? Yeah, I've been there. Through it all, I try to look at them in a Habakkuk 3:17-19 way, which takes me back to #1 on my list)
  8. That I made it through the craziness that was tech week (Bella's they had me washing dishes, vacuuming, carrying stuff, running from place to place...10 hour days in addition to my other classes..phwhat?! As an actress, it made me seriously appreciate techie's and behind the scenes people. It legit takes a village to run a show).
  9. Vanilla Lattes with Whipped Cream + Dove Chocolates w/ Caramel inside.
  10. The everyday simple joys in life. Y'all know that I love to indulge in fabulosity but I definitely have an appreciation for life's simple pleasures like the first snowfall, hugs from my parents, the laughter of my little sisters, smiles from my baby cousins, the warmth of the sun on my fave spot on my couch, chilling with my hometeam, music, etc.
What are y'all thankful for Bella's?
