Picture: My mom and I love to smile 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to all my US folks! Today as we celebrate Thanksgiving Day let us remember to be thankful everyday for not only the good things but also the bad things in our lives as it makes us who we are today. Today I am thankful for the gift of life, health and the tremendous amount of love I have surrounding me each and everyday. It is a blessing to have a family that stands by you and loves you unconditionally. My mom is my inspiration of the month as I aspire to be half the woman she is.

Therefore, on this wonderful day, I am thankful for all those who have supported me in anyway possible… even the smallest things count! I am thankful for being able to express myself in ways I could have never imagined before. I am thankful for my flaws and imperfections as they are a reminder that no one can be or is  perfect and that it is OK because this is how God made me. I am thankful for all my blessings and the good things that have come my way as they are a reminder that life can be good sometimes even in the worst of situations. I am thankful to God for being alive and well and for providing me with my amazing parents and sisters who inspire and always believe in me, family and friends. I am truly thankful to you, my readers, for taking timeout out of your busy day be it a good day or a bad day – to read what I have to say today. What are you thankful for?  XOXO…The Hotjem
