So I am getting ready for Thanksgiving and the Cowboy's game, and I just thought, hey, I should write a blog post! lol. There are so many things to be thankful for, and so I am going to just list some of the things that come to mind for me right now. This is NOT a comprehensive or exhaustive list mind you, :) but rather just a musing of love.
I am thankful for my new Daddy. He makes me feel so special and cherished. I love being his and being on his arm, and the swell of happy that I feel when he shows me off to his friends can not be explained. I am so thankful for his patience with me and my crazy, and for his desire to push me to be the most and best I can be. He is the most wonderful teacher I could ask for to discover my BDSM side, and I am loving every moment I spend with him. I am so proud to be his.
I am thankful for my beautiful sisters, Mila Kohl and Sarah Gregory. Mila is an amazing roommate and the best of friends- she makes me smile when I'm down, and laughs and cheers with me when I'm up. And Sarah is the kindest most genuine person to be around, and I am so grateful that we have created this bond, and nothing is going to tear it apart.
I am thankful for my Mozzie. :) Yes, I am possibly in an abusive relationship with my cat (I have more scars than any one person ever should) but there is nothing like the love I get when I walk in the door, or the feeling of him cuddled on me in bed.
I am thankful for Zyrtec. I am allergic to my Mozzie. Nough said. :)
I am thankful to live in a country where we have an entire holiday dedicated to being thankful. And where we have peaceful transitions of power. And where I can do this!
I am thankful for my family- my parents and brother. We have our issues, but I could not have possibly asked for a more supportive family. They have taken everything I have thrown at them in stride, and not only accept who I am, but do their best to be involved in my life. I am thankful that my mom is finally healthy, and I am thankful for everyday I get with them.
I am thankful for Model Mayhem. It has helped my dreams of being able to model professionally come true, and has helped me feel more comfortable in my skin than I ever have before.
I am thankful for Fetlife. For bringing people together, and for continually making me "Kinky and Popular." Lol, I have certainly never been popular before.
I am thankful for Miss Rose's evil paddles, London Tanners wicked straps, Mr. Zia's crazy creations, Miss Kitty's beautiful wood, and for Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond for carrying such amazing brushes and spoons. :) Anything to get my butt spanked... I am thankful and happy! lol
I am thankful for BDSM. It's fun... way more fun than I thought it would be. Oh yeah, and for condoms ;)
I am thankful for Shadow Lane. You introduced me to spanking all those years ago, and then introduced me to my idols. You brought me together with my sisters, and showed me that I could be strong on my own.
I am thankful for Bottoms Up and the local community. I could not possibly have ever asked for a better group of people to call my friends and my family. You have always made me feel welcomed and safe, and I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing organization.
I am thankful for Rachel Maddow. For World of Warcraft and for Nerdfighteria. And for really good bras.
I am thankful for Paul. He taught me so much during our time together and showed me so much in this world. He gave me so many opportunities, and opened up new roads for me. I learned who I am and who I'm not with him, and I wouldn't be where I am had I not been with him. I am thankful for the time we had together, and for the love we shared.
I am thankful for my past, my present and my future.
I am thankful for my health and safety. For the ridiculous blessings I have in this life. For my happiness and my occasional sanity.
And most of all, I am thankful for my fans/readers/lurkers/stalkers/friends. For everyone who has stuck with me in good times and bad. To this community that has enriched my life in so many ways. For my blogging friends who have supported me and been amazing... thank you all. You make not only this worth while, but also just make me happy. :) We are about to enter year 5... and there is no way I would have come even close to this far without y'all.
