Thankful Thursday!

It’s Thursday already? My where has the time gone this week!

1 – I’m so thankful for the men and women who choose to fight for our country. This week I had the privilege to photograph a commissioning ceremony for Lt. Evans. He is one of 5,000 that will be commissioned into the United States Army this year by way of the ROTC college program. (GO NAVY!)

2 – I’m thankful for a best friend that goes to events with me even though he hates dancing and would rather be somewhere else : ) C, you’re the best! I am glad that we’ve been friends these past four years..I have no clue what I’m going to do when you leave after graduation!

3 – I’m thankful for amazing people who rescue animals from cruel situations. This adorable dog has been my buddy this week as mom and dad headed to some warmer weather to work on their tans. She was living in San Antonio, TX pregnant, malnourished and dehydrated in the middle of summer when a neighbor noticed her. Her owners were moving and had planned to drop her off on the wrong side of town when that courageous neighbor walked up to them and said absolutely not. She took both dogs (the second would later die from her conditions) and immediately got medical care for both of them. Unfortunately, Cari would lose the litter that she was carrying due to her poor treatment. This kind Samaritan took Cari home and fostered her until her now mom and dad adopted her :) She’s been their kiddo for 2 years now and I must say I am in absolute love with her :) I’ve enjoyed our playtime and cuddles this week! To all the “rescue dog” mom and dads out there..Thanks!

4 – I am thankful for sparkles! Sometimes you have a bad day..and I had a horrible Wednesday this week. I’ve been commuting back and forth this week as I’m living in another town taking care of Cari :) One my way to work yesterday, I was rear-ended by an F350 with 250 gallons of water on the back. Talk about ouch. Thankfully the only damage my truck sustained was two messed up bumpers (I was hit and hit the guy in front of me). But in my slightly melancholy state yesterday I saw sparkles all around my office :) and I smiled! Because it’s the little things in life that make me happy..sparkles in my window, puppy cuddles and best friends :)

What are you thankful for this Thursday?

XoXo!
