Your blessings count.

I’m thankful for...

…being from good ole’ Joplin, Missouri & coming from one of the strongest communities in the nation, especially after the tornado. Serving my country, proudly following in the lines of my family defending a nation we call so blessed. My amazingly resilient husband, who has been nothing but supportive throughout this past decade of friendship, engagement & almost 4 yrs of marriage. My wonderful family & all my friends back home. And, of course, the little things: a roof over my head, clothes on my back, food in my belly, good people to share life with, & most importantly, being alive, healthy & well. God bless America, God bless Joplin, MO, God bless Mercy. Merry Christmas.
