To all my special Enrique friends and Enrique too,
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends. Each and every one of you have touched my life in so many wonderful ways. This thanksgiving I am focusing at looking at the big picture. I am thankful for the job I have...I know it's rough at times...but standing back and looking at the big picture....at least I have a job. I am thankful for my wonderful family Ashley Griffith and William Griffith. Sometimes we have our differences and life is hard...but standing back and looking at the big picture...I realize that I have the best husband and daughter in the world. I am also blessed to have such a large family. 19 years ago....my husbands family welcomed me into their family with open arms and for that I am truly blessed because even though there are disagreements at times...we all would have each others back in a heartbeat. And that is a true gift. I am thankful for all my wonderful friends...even though we argue sometimes...we argue because we care that much about what that person thinks and feels. I am thankful for my home...and yes mortgage payments can be rough and neighbors can be aggreviating ....but at least I have a place that my family and I can call home. I am also thankful for getting to know Enrique (yes Enrique if your reading this) I mean you! I know your probably smiling and giggling to yourself right now. But aside from your smoking good looks and your wonderful music, I am thankful for you being you. And I know that may sound kind of crazy but really it's not. You personally have touched my life in more ways than you will ever know. Your music gets me through some very tough times and brings out the best in me. When I am having that rough day, I know I can turn on your music and I will feel a little bit better. Your music has also helped me with my writing. I do most of my writing to a good portion of your music. That has helped me to write and make my scipts that much better. And more importantly, through following you all these years, I have learned so much about myself as well personally and professionally. You are the one that has taught me that when times are tough and you feel like your going nowhere that I should never give up. You have taught me that perserverence, committment and dedication is what makes an artist truly unique. You also taught me that my writing should be done on my own timeline and that I shouldn't worry what others think. I should do my writing and write until I feel that it is my very best. I know it seems maybe corny to say this Enrique....you have had a major influence in my life and I have never even met you. That is one of the best gifts in the world. I know we all have our faults and things are not always perfect....but it's important to surround yourself with people you love and that care about you more than what you can give them. And I thank you Enrique.....for just being a part of my life. And most of all, I am thankful for the personal relationship that I have developed with God through the years. Sometimes I don't understand why he does the things he does and why he can't change things that I want changed. But it is my faith that has grown stronger over the years and in turn that has shown me that it's not for me to questions who, what, where, when and why. It's not for me to question but to put aside those questions and become the servant that he has instilled within me. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. This year I am truly looking at the blessings in my life. And more importantly....remember those blessings not just on Thanksgiving but everyday in the year. God Bless you all and please stay safe. And just one more thing......I put fort a CHALLENGE for each and everyone of you. I challenge you to tell at the very least, 1 person that you are thankful for them and why. Now Imagine if everyone of you who reads this did this. I am sure that the person they do this to will ask why your doing this. Don't say it's from me, but just tell them that this thanksgiving this is what you are doing. I am 99.9 percent sure that they will do it too. And it will snowball through many people throughout the day. And at the end of the day.....you personally in your heart will know that you made Thanksgiving just a little bit better not just for you but for everyone.
