  1. So being that I am part of your past, in a round about way, you are thankful for me…I think if you were to make this list over again, you should have one of the 55 as I am thankful for Jeremy! A little more direct!

  2. It is Thanksgiving Day and my wish for everyone is that you all feel the closeness and the connection of really being in the moment with your friends and family ♥ ♥ ♥ I wish the miles were not so far since I would love to spend the day with so many of you. I am thankful that we will be close in heart… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
