Thank you!

This year I’m thankful for my husband who loves me; I’m thankful for my two beautiful daughters. I’m blessed to have become a mother for the second time. I’m also blessed to have such a great extending family in the Seamans. My in laws are awesome! They accept me for who I am, and during our separation, they never judge me but kept telling me they loved me no matter what.

Vanessa, what can I say! You are the best Auntie my daughters can possibly ever have! You are also there when I need a shoulder to cry on. I love you very much!

Guy and Mandy keep doing what you are doing; you are an inspiration to us all!

James, you will always be my brother in law no matter what happens from this moment on. I do not regret choosing you to be Sofia’s godfather.

Pati, I’m glad we connected again. Let’s begin a new friendship!

Hollis, you and I still need to talk and I promise it will be very soon. Then we will begin a new friendship based in forgiveness, love and acceptance towards each other.

Zarah, thank you for being so caring, kind and understanding towards me. You seem to always call me when I need someone to talk to. I look forward to meeting your beautiful twin baby girls in February!

Jo, thank you for recommending the raspberry leaf tea for my morning sickness. It sure helped!

I feel that each year that passes by, the Lord challenges me to grow in Him and takes me to paths where I don’t want to walk across but He wants me to break free from my old ways and build new ways based in Him. The Lord is humbling me once again.

This year, I have been loved, I have been hurt, I have laughed, I have rejoiced, I have conquered, I have lost, I have gained, I have cried, I have forgiven. But most importantly is to know that family is the most beautiful thing to cherish each and every day. What I have now, I will not take for granted ever again. I make a choice each and everyday to love.

So, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Forget Black Friday and instead choose to spend the day with your family and love on them! God Bless, Sandra.

p.s: A year ago I ran my first 8 mile Turkey Trot! I can't believe it!
