Living Life with an Attitude of Gratitude...

There are so many things i am thankful for in my life, I realize that for the most part I am not as vocal about the things i am thankful for as i am about the things that I am upset or concerned about. Most of this blog has been dedicated to my rants and raves about people and things that upset me. I've decided that from now on i will write about something i am grateful for once a week.
I am thankful for my wonderful family, especially my amazing mum and step dad. They have been raising me right for most of my life, I am thankful for my job, I love it and every day i work there is a day that i have a smile on my face. I love arts and crafts and my new job lets me work in very very close proximity to everything i could possibly need to do my art projects. I am thankful for the wonderful girls that God has recently brought into my life, they are amazing and I am so blessed to call them my friends (and soon to be my sisters! <3 Love those girls sooo much). I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to attend college, and major in something i am very interested in, a chance that as a woman i would not have been given were i from many other countries in the world. I am thankful for my amazing boyfriend, who loves me and supports me even though we hardly get to see one another. He's my hero, and I pray for him daily as he goes on calls and helps to protect the people of Laurens County as a volunteer firefighter. What he does scares me to death, and i worry about him constantly (especially now that he's actually able to fight the fires i was less worried when he was just doing scene control and directing traffic around wrecks) Which brings me to my next gratitude, i am grateful for all our public servants, as well as our Military personnel. Our cops, firefighters, and soldiers put their lives on the line every day so that the rest of us can sleep at night. I am grateful for the hard working janitorial staff that were recently cut back at my school, they are needed and missed. Finally i am thankful for the teachers who are out there every day doing what i hope to soon be doing. YOU are my hero's and my inspiration. So until next time... I love you all, and hope that you will find something everyday that you can be thankful for. Peace, Love, and Passion (for giving thanks and loving my life) Nyki. K.

Love this pic... and since i'm both a proud Laurens County Resident, and a proud firefighters girl friends I'm gonna put it up here, along with the pic below which i'm pretty sure is from Station 21 (my baby's station <3)
