Giving thanks...

It's Thanksgiving Day here in the United States, and I would be remiss if I didn't take the opportunity to express my gratitude for the endless blessings in my life.

For the sake of keeping it related to the blog's topic, I will only list the Jovi blessings here - but I have a whole other treasure box full of life's gifts that I am grateful for today.

I am thankful for...

- ...every single one of you reading this right now. I wouldn't have had nearly the success with this blog if you all weren't sitting here reading this post; you've made it what it is today, and will help make it even more successful in the future, I'm sure of it. Running a blog is hard work, especially when it's time-sensitive and needs to be updated with news and current events, so it is VERY rewarding to see the numbers of readers, read the feedback, and receive the kind words and compliments. I hope you get just as much out of this as I get out of running it!

- ...the opportunity to have seen Bon Jovi live as many times as I have (especially this year.) Many of those concerts were gifts from people who love me, and I can never thank them enough for the incredible, memorable experience it is to see this amazing band live. And I couldn't have done it (on a college student's budget) without them!

- ...the wonderful, amazing, and inspirational people I have met through this band, and whom have touched my heart greatly. I would NOT be the woman I am today without them; they make my life richer and happier in infinite ways, and I can't imagine never having grown to know them.

- ...and finally, Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan, and Tico Torres. I have poured out my heart before and I know I will do it again, but words will never express the ways in which these men have changed my life - for the better. And I will never, ever forget or underestimate the power of their music and influence on me; they will be a part of my heart and soul until the day I die.

So, have a beautiful day, everyone - it may only be Thanksgiving in America, but there's always a reason to stop and reflect on the blessings in your life, no matter which country you live in. Take a moment today and think about what you're grateful for - it just might put a new perspective on things. xoxo

That is a beautiful and an inspiring message. You brought tears to my eyes. I don't know you, but I can feel that you have a good heart. You are talented and a hard worker. I'm from Montreal and here we don't really celebrate Thanksgiving like in the U.S., but I am grateful to have virtually met you through the Web, and I will make sure to talk about your blog to my JOVINATION entourage. Keep up the good work Girl - Johanne
