Things I Am Thankful For

  1. My Parents – I am thankful for being the daughter to two of the most loving supportive people. They gave me the courage to be anything that I want. The relationship I have with my Dad is truly unique. I love him more than life itself & we have got the best communication (snark included). My Mother is my rock – without her I would be totally lost.

  15. Catfish – I saw the movie Catfish not to long ago & now I’m thankful for the Catfish of life.
    “They used to tank cod from Alaska all the way to China . They'd keep them in vats in the ship. By the time the codfish reached China , the flesh was mush and tasteless. So this guy came up with the idea that if you put these cods in these big vats, put some catfish in with them and the catfish will keep the cod agile. And there are those people who are catfish in life. And they keep you on your toes. They keep you guessing, they keep you thinking, they keep you fresh. And I thank god for the catfish because we would be droll, boring and dull if we didn't have somebody nipping at our fin.”
