A Thank You Note For You

 Prince of Wales hotel - Feb. 2011

Did you know that January is National Thank You Month?  I didn't know, until just this morning, when Nuno posted this as his facebook status:

"Today is national "thank you" day, be thankful for what you have and don't have."

He heard it on the radio while driving this morning.  I went online and discovered that January is national thank you month!  I could not let this day go by without saying thank you to my blog readers and followers. 

Thank you for reading my posts.  Thank you for all of your comments.  Thank you for taking the time to tell me you enjoy reading my blog and thank you to those who enjoy reading it, quietly, and have never told me. 

I couldn't possibly continue writing my posts without your input, comments, and inspiration.  You make me feel that you care about what I have to say; that you enjoy reading and seeing what I have to share.  I am blessed to have such good friends and family who support me on here and share in my most happy moments.  Because, that is what life is about, sharing happy moments, good times, fun adventures... LIVING, LAUGHING, LOVING! 

Thank you for coming along on my journey.  It makes me happy to share my life with you.  I will continue to document the things that make me S-M-I-L-E and hope that they, in turn, put a smile on your face. 

So, as Nuno said, so thankful for what you have and don't have.  I am!  I send out a huge thank you to the Universe...there's no place I'd rather be, than here with you! 

"Gratitude is the best attitude. There is not a more pleasing exercise of the mind than gratitude. It is accompanied with such an inward satisfaction that the duty is sufficiently rewarded by the performance."


  1. Ahh well THANK YOU Rosinda, for being YOU! You're like a sunny day, everyday, and someone we're all thankful we have around us to be a beacon of cheer and inspiration. You're as yummy as a girl can be--like a Snickers bar in human form!

  2. Still laughing at Nancy's comment, Rosinda - a Snickers bar in human form, lol!! I don't know that I'd put it quite that way...BUT I agree that WE should be thanking YOU! There's no doubt that my life is much better for having you in it...cheery, loving and an inspiration for every mother & wife...contented and always looking on the bright side. You're a star, sweetie xoxo Rachel
