Lots to be Thankful for!

I asked a few wonderful ladies to be a guest blogger for me this week. I have 5 wonderful ladies lined up with some wonderful posts. I wanted to post this earlier this morning, but with the events of today, that was impossible.

This week, I will be hosting Riding The Roller Coaster, Navy Doll, Faith & Deployments, Inside My Mind [like Phantom of the Opera] and The Life Of A Sailor's Empress.
 Here's what to expect:
Monday- "I'm Thankful for this Deployment"
Tuesday- "Dear USAF, I'm Thankful"
Wednesday- "Dear Military, I Thank You"
Thursday- "I'm Thankful for this Life"
Friday- "Ola Vevik, The Navy and How They Saved My Life"
Saturday- "Thankful"

These ladies are great. I will tell you why I love them the day I publish their guest post.

I asked these ladies a simple, very simple question. "What are you Thankful for?". With that question, it had to be positive and military oriented.

I have read their posts, and I must say.. I have some wonderful ladies surrounding me. Cyber-world and real life.

I am blessed.

Although this is not my actual "Thankful" post. I would like to say "Thank you!" to everyone who has reached out to me and my husband today. Whether it be here on blogger, facebook, email or even by phone. It means a lot to me. There are many of you I have yet to have the chance to respond to, it's been a busy and chaotic day, and I will try my best to get back to each and every one of you as soon as possible. Just know, I appreciate all your kind words.

NCIS has yet to find the 2 men that held the gun up to my husband today, but I know in time they will get what they deserve. I am just Thankful that my husband was not harmed physically. Money is replaceable, my husband is not.
I pray that noone else faces what my husband had to endure today as well as the mental anguish I felt this morning. We try to make light of the situation and make corny little jokes, so far it's working... We refuse to loose our positivity and refuse to let this ruin our Thanksgiving.

Again, Thank you all.


  1. Thank you so much for letting me guest post. Can't wait to see it posted and to read the other fabulous guest posts.

    And again, I'm so glad your husband is ok. I still can't believe that happened on base, but I'm glad you 2 have each other to get through it. Hang in there and I hope those guys get what they deserve.

  3. So glad your Husband is ok. Deployment is incredibly difficult, and its times like this that being Thankful for life and the chance to come home is extremely important.

  4. I can't wait to read everyone's post from this week. It's always great when you can find the positive side to things.

    Great guest blog line up!!!!

  5. Cannot wait to read them... I am happy your hubby is okay.. I'll be praying for you
