Thanksgiving is this week and I am thinking about how I very lucky for each person who has been apart of my life and supporting me and not letting me just say I have a disability so I don’t have to do anything. My mom most importantly because of her, I am able to be independent and I know I can do everything just in a different way! I know I will always need help, but if I work at it i could do anything! There is a person who I have grown close too because she saw me without my disability from the first time we meet and I realized how much she helped me and loved me during a time in my life when I was going through a lot of hard things. I am so thankful for her! And all my friends and family who have helped made my life so amazing!
November is time to give thanks for all your hold close and all you have! I normally write each day what I’m thankful for, but this year I don’t think I could do one for each day of the month, I am thankful for everything I have and do! I have someone who has helped me realize that you can be happy without having everything you have enough just with your family and people who love you and that’s what I’m thankful for this year!
Mother’s Day is Sunday, what can I say about mothers but they are amazing and we would be here without moms! I have the best mom ever who had to raise me on her own, moving to a different country to make sure I could have a full life, also so I could be safe and independent . We couldn’t bring my brothers because they are much older, so it was hard for us our new life. I would say my relationship with my mom is more like a friendship then my mother and I love it. We are close; I’m so lucky, I am not a daddy’s girl but a moms girl. I have two other very special friendships who I think of them as my other mothers and I feel so lucky to have that kind of relationship with two of my dearest friends!
My day was just made by my friend/sister now before I got her text I trying to think about what to write about. Then I got a text from her; asking if she could use my picture to help her teacher children about different/disabilities. Its not a big deal her asking me I want to bring more awareness to difference and she is like a sister to me. I was her baby-sitter when she was 2, I went over to their house every day after school. And her family moved after a year of being a’ ’mother’s helper’’ I thought she wouldn’t remember that time but kids do. Like it was yesterday! I just think about that family means so much to me, first it was the first opportunity a job for me and I really don’t have to explain why I was in a chair or about my CP her mom just saw me and wanted me to be able to watch them, Adira and Addison. My close friend now; don’t make a big deal about my disability which I think helped the kids just see me without my disability, now that I have been able to know Adira a little more I love that even if I hardly see them; we are still family. I think it would be great for more young children to get an opportunity to around people with disabilities so they know that just because someone is in a wheelchair doesn’t mean they are that different from able-body people. I am proud of my little sister!
The day before Thanksgiving and not doing a good job at writing daily about what I am thankful for after not feeling good a few days of not doing I want to say thanks for my health; I get headaches a lot I am not sure why sometimes. I think sometimes I get so tight that it doesn’t help, there could be a lot of different that could be giving me headaches; waking up and feeling sick is the worst thing you have a lot of to do but you cannot do because it hurts and it could last days not fun. Other than my down headaches days I am pretty healthy and happy. I know my blog has a long way to go; so I can make some money from something that I love doing which is writing and helping others; I am happy and thankful that I have so many followers on the blog and on the facebook page so thank you who-ever is following me. It means a lot! I just started writing to keep busy but now I have a feeling that one day I can have my online community to help others I am so thankful!
It’s the week of thanksgiving and I officially am bad at trying to write something I’m thankful for each day; its because I’m not thankful for I am. But I don’t know why I can’t think of something different for each day. For me it’s people that I am most thankful for, the times I get with them is the best. People, love, is what really matters to me!
Today I’m thankful for love! I know it has different meanings to everyone. But for me, it’s always thinking of someone else; family and friends. A special friendship that you know its always there just like family! Lately there has been a lot of shootings and sadness everywhere including sicknesses that it has gotten to me; especially because I have so many people I love that I don’t see much because they far away and I feel like I can’t be there the way I want to or they don’t know how much they are loved. It’s the way things are but I am thankful that everyday I can share love in some way!
Today I’m thankful for joy happiness. And just knowing that I can help others because I can share my heart without thinking about what I am doing for others! =
Day 13; I love waking and looking around my room at all the photos I have all over my room! First because so many of my loved ones are so far away, and it helps just to see people who have been there for me, love is everywhere in my room I love it!
Thinking about what I’m thankful for today yesterday it was fun because I saw a friend who when we are together; its like we became kids and laugh no stop! I love that kind of friendship where we can act like kids and not care. Today I am thankful for music I love and need it on all the time. It helps with my mood sometimes, its makes me think. Most important I can dance in my room where nobody can see!
I know I already gave thanks for this friend but I would like to write a post just to her because I know she has helped make this year better for me! Also I want to make her smile and feel special like she does for me daily! Sometimes you just know that a friendship is meant to be! From coming in my life when I really needed a friend and giving me my first babysitting job to somehow always supporting me even when we didn’t talk much, I know that we will always be close! She is one of the most important friends to me! Today I’m so thankful that she is my special best friend I know I will have forever!
What are you thankful for this year? Each day there is something to be thankful something that no everyone gets maybe it’s simple but for you it is huge! For Day 9; I am so thankful that I can write; to you it may not seem like something to be thankful for; but writing has gave me the opportunity to work but most importantly I have this blog where I can do something that I have dreaming about forever! Its has been in my heart to help people. Ever since I was a kid, making others feel happy and loved has been my mission! So now I can write for others in read, it is the best! I still have hopes to get a network for others to reach out me but with that I have a lot of leaning to get so I be a coach. But for now I am very happy to be able to write and hopefully it is helpful to others. Thanks for your support!
Day7; I am thankful for love. I have been in a little weird mood for me lately. There are times when I’m down and it is because of anything, I guess I just wish I could do more like be out more. I know I do a lot but I want to be able to go out. Am I depressed? No I think I need to get into something like life coaching or just do something with my days that makes me happy! I am thankful for my best friends so thankful that they mean so much to me; more than I could say! My best friends, they are more like family I got to pick. I have a lot of best friends, but I have a very different and special friendships with each of them. To you, my best friends you mean everything to me, I love you!
Day4. I am thankful for happiness too the kind where you don’t care who is calling you names or people who see you and think you are something that you are not. I know I am not a good person to say it’s easy to not let it affect you because it’s annoying when people don’t see you for you. I think what can be helpful is if you know who you are and if you love yourself than those things people tell you may hurt a little but then you will remember who you are and that you are loved. I’m happy as who I because I am loved!
So the month of thanksgiving has started and I missed my thankfulness by two days, what how! Day one, would be I’m thankful for my family especially my mum, they always told me not to let my did disability stop me, because of that I am able to live independently from them like a normal young adult! I love it that my cp does get in the way. Day two; would have to be getting a pretty friendship back! Not only we had time together but now we talk everyday which I love so much! Day three would be reading.
It’s coming up on my favorite time of the year, Thanksgiving! I like this time of year because we can give thanks each day, we should do it every day but life is so busy that we don’t. Every year I try to write each day what I am thankful for; it doesn’t always happen. This year I did some though out the year; I went to keep it going. I am thankful for true friendships that they are not with you in a way that we can see them but you know you can talk to them each day anytime. I always want to see friends thinking that is what is a friendship but you know what I realized that it’s so not the most important way. But the important thing is that you know you can talk them no-matter what.
I am so thankful for this last weekend; I was with a special friend best friend. Life has moved us to different states sometimes I wish we were living closer but the distance doesn’t make our friendship any different! I loved every minute that we had together, like a gift just us!
What makes you the most happy? Or if what is the best gift you have gotten? Don’t think about it as just something but maybe someone. That changes the idea of a gift. Does really. No I think it’s better, something can’t give you a lot like the people in your life can! Its hard not to wait stuff but people are the most important gifts I think!
I will have my house guest in two weeks I am super excited about the time with a best friend, especially since we have known each other forever but haven’t been in contact all this years till this year which I don’t know why I did not do better at keeping in concert with my friend. First because I wish time didn’t get a way from us, second because I am remembering how much we were in each other lifes. It was a great gift when I recognized how I missed this friendship, something somehow we both knew we needed each other like when we meet! It just awesome how sometimes people stay with you even if they don’t see them. You know time will never change that friendship. That I think it is the greatest gift you can get!
I am so thankful for friendships I know I write about friendships a lot but to me it’s the best gift you can get. My birthday is coming up and I’ve been asked what I want and I don’t want anything. People are my favorite gift. I don’t want things just to say you gave me something, love, family and friendships is what is important to me!
These last few days I been wishing a friendship would come back. I know somehow it’s still apart from me but there are days when I wish my heart felt a little different but I don’t, I do; I know I can always think about it and it makes me happy and I know we always have that. All that to say people are my best gifts and this week I’m thankful for amazingly friendships.
This week I am thankful for love! Not only love I have; but also I love making others feel important! It is what keeps me happy, it’s what makes me me. My daily life I need help with everything physical it’s the best feeling to give to my loved ones; I might love too much but it is me! “Real love is opening your heart to the unlovable. Real gratitude is giving thanks when things aren’t perfect. Real generosity is sharing when you have very little. Real courage makes the ‘impossible’ — possible, with real faith.” — Bryant McGill
This weeks gratefulness is to something that to most it must not be something to give thanks for, but for me it is. It pictures and memories that remained with you always! Each day I get excited to look facebook and look at the memories for that day a year ago on a few years back! It’s a great way to remember people who may not talk to as much but the memories helps to know that time will be yours to think back to!
This week I’m thankful for the things that made me smile; like the scenes changing into summer, everything seems new. The sun shining on everything making things look happy and healthy like life is starting new again, in a way it is. I love sitting outside thinking about everything I have.
I think I start a thankful once a week , you know each day there is something to be thankful for. May be it’s small maybe it’s a smile from someone you love. I am thankful for amazing friendships.
I am thankful for my family. I might be disabled to some people. But to I’m not!
I’m thankful for dancing
I am thankful for writing! I love being there for others and supporting those who do not have that, I just can see people in a different way. have always wanted to help others .
Day7; I’m thankful for the way I am even my crazy CP! I’m the way I am because of what I have been through and my CP. It might not easy but I wouldn’t be same. I need a lot of help which sometimes I could do more for myself but I’m thankful for what I can do!
I am thankful happiness! Special people that mean so much to me; more than I could say! My best friends, they are more like family I got to pick. I have a lot of best friends, but I have a very different and special friendships with each of them. To you, my best friends you mean everything to me, I love you!
”Be careful not to attach your sense of worth to your performance. When you’re dissatisfied with something you have said or done, talk with Me about it. Ask Me to help you sort out what is truly sinful and what is not. Confess any sins you’re aware of, and receive My forgiveness gratefully. Then live in the freedom of being My beloved believer. Don’t let your mistakes and sins diminish your sense of worth. Remember that you have been declared ‘Not Guilty’ forever! There is no condemnation for those who are in Me—who belong to Me. You are precious to Me, and I take delight in you, so refuse to condemn yourself.” —Jesus Always by Sarah Young
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” —Romans 8:1 ESV

I Am thankful for being able to read wherever I go, I have always loved reading .But now that I have a book app I love it even more . .
I Am thankful for music . I have it on always . .
What is the best thing that has happened this year . As I think about my thanksthanksgiving list of this year . I can’t pick one thing . . The first thing is family of course , but my family is far away , then again family can be friends too. I am thankful for people who are always there . When they make sure to tell you that you are loved every day that is the best gift i think !
Its that time of the year to try to give thanks every day, I’m going to say one thing I’m grateful for each day let’s see if I can do it through the new year. This year I have so much to be thankful for; where do I start? I have started to live on my own well with a roommate and it is only part time: but it is a lot different than having your mom with you every night now I have to make sure I have help and everything. I never thought I would be able to live without my mom or with family but I can! And I love it!
Each year I can think of a few things I would like to get for my birthday, but this year as my birthday is coming up and as I think about this last year and everything I have and all I am doing. I don’t want gifts there is nothing I want. I just want to be with the people who mean the most to me. The best gift for me is knowing that I am loved, this year I already received some amazing gifts which are not things you can buy as in; friendships, starting my own own life, having a job after a long time of thinking I couldn’t get a one that I could do well in. I just received so much this year and to you; it might not seem like gifts, but they are so much to me. Life is awesome and I don’t have to be someone I’m not to have a happy life. So thankful!
Today I’m thankful that although I have a disability; which I always need to have someone with me to go out and all of my physical needs, I can still have the life of a normal” adult whatever you think that looks like! I just had a busy weekend and that made me realize that not everyone who has my kind of disability can have a life that they would like to have. And for the people who help make that happen, thank you! !
To my amazing friend C, Ever meet someone from first meet you felt that it was not by accident but you both needed the friendship. I love this amazing crazy lady so much, its so great to have someone who does not mind, how much I message her I know she has lots to do but when I need someone to talk to she always has been there! Or even when I need someone to come over she has been there every time with the biggest heart ever! I will never forget about the first time that I needed help with something, we had just started talking still getting to know each other more; I had just found out that my aide couldn’t come help me; I had been talking with her, and when I took her she said that she would be over with dinner. It was the first time she would help me with my care and I was a little nervous that it would be hard for her to understand me; because people who have not been around me can’t understand what i’m saying but she found a way to understand me. We laugh so much when we are together it’s like we don’t have to talk much just laugh! My best crazy cat lady friend, you have been the best gift to me, always there just when I really need. I love you so much more than you know! ❤ I’m so thankful for you
I am going to start writing when I can about thankfulness or things that I’m thankful for, I know we do this during November but I think that everything is a gift, each day there will be little things to be thankful for. Maybe something as small as waking up and looking outside and that gives you happiness. I have been realizing now more than ever how you never know how fast life can change. I am thankful for everything in my life, even the times where it’s all going wrong, I know I wouldn’t be doing the things that make my life happy if life was was easy. I have a disability life can get hard but I think it’s helps me get to what I am meant to do! I am so thankful to the people who have never thought I am just a girl with cp and can’t do anything for myself and make me try things so I can be independent. I am also thankful for people who may be see me and think that I am a kid; no I just do things differently . I am thankful and happy about everything, life is so amazing, I want to give thanks every day.
The one thing I’m the most thankful for is LOVE! Family and friends who don’t care about my crazy cp and I have about five best friends whom I don’t think my life would be this amazing without each of them! I could not say how much they mean to me!! I have so much to be thankful for I don’t think I could write everything down. I have a great life and I am so thankful for it all! I love that I can help others thought writing because helping others is my dream. So thank you for following me and letting me what I love! Happy Thanksgiving! Oh yeah and just because today is Thanksgiving doesn’t mean that we can’t think about what we are thankful for everyday of the year.
Oh boy it’s hard to give thanks for people and things in life when I think about people in my life hurting and knowing a friend is going through losing her second son. But at the same time I know that I am so grateful for each person in my life! Right I’m saying I love you like crazy; because I realize how much everyday is a gift and really we don’t know what will be today you could have everything you want and need , the next your life could change, life changes so so easily we always need to let people in our lives know how much they mean to us. I want to give thanks to everyone who is important in my life; I’m so happy that I have so much love from friends who now are a part of my family . And I am very happy that I have a amazing family that all over the world but we are still close!
I’m thankful for dancing! I love love dancing! I love having music on and going crazy when a favorite song comes on.
So thankful for love, fun days and my sister Aloura. Having a sister we have so much fun together now we live together. She was first my aid but now she is my best friend and sister. I have two amazing sisters which I don’t couldn’t be more thankful that they have become family ! Love you!
Thankful for everything I have; I know healthy and I have so much in my life to be thankful for! I know there are times that I have wished that some things could be different from time to time; we all get that way sometimes. I used to think it I love others to much but now that I think I understand how much love can give us true happiness, I am very thankful that I have love in my world, I have the best mom in the world and brothers and two amazing dads. Not only all those people but I have greatest best friends who are now apart of my family, I have a second mom, sisters I couldn’t be more grateful! Having friendships that somehow became apart of your family is the greatest gift ever! Especially when your family lives around the world, it can be great having family in different countries to get to go visit but most of the time it’s hard. My best friends who I think of a family; it doesn’t mean that I love my friends more than my mom and brothers it means that my mom and I never have to be alone we know we can always find someone to talk or who will help us if we need it. I just wanted to give thanks to every person in my life, I am so happy, loved and to me that is the best gift I could ever have! !
Yesterday I went to an event which was the opening of a new place called project walk, they work with people with disabilities to help us with our physical strength and work on walking. I was able to go because I work with Ms. Wheelchair Colorado and I am so thankful that, that organization does it is so great for women in wheelchairs. When I was Ms. Wheelchair Colorado2010, I thought it would only one year that I would be Ms. Wheelchair, but no I will always be Ms. Wheelchair Colorado 2010! Now that I run Ms. Colorado it’s more apart of my life and I am so thankful that it is apart of my life! I am going to try out project walk and maybe they can help me. Today I am thankful for a long walks I love going for walks with my dog. It is a nice way to think and just be out.
Today I’m thankful for the sun and horses
I’m thankful for dancing and music! I love music that when I hear that song it makes me think about a special time or person. And I love to dance!
I am thankful for angels crazy idea right? But there are such things as angles, when life gets hard there are angles looking out for you! Maybe it’s someone you know family member or a friend. Today I’m thankful that I could feel one beside me when I needed it.
This is to someone who is so incredibly special to me I’m writing about her because I am so thankful for her! Also I’ve been thinking so much her lately. Life has a weird way of giving me the best people to be a part of life, this lady has thinks that I’m always there, but she been there for me in so many ways. I don’t see her a lot but when I do it’s so special!
