Thankful Reflections & Thanksgiving OOTD

    Today I am thankful. And today I reflect on the fact that each and every day I am thankful. For what, well- that changes daily. 
    Some days I'm thankful for hot tea and cable knit sweaters. Other days I'm thankful for long books and slow songs. Or even silence and a clear mind. But every day I am thankful for the moments. The good ones that send me soaring high over oceans and in planes to places I never dreamed of. And the bad ones, that send my flying straight back down, grounding me to my two humble feet. Together in a jumble of seasons and hours and seconds, those moments make up this life I lead. And this life I love. 
    So today I challenge you to find what you're thankful for. It can be the big things, your first love, your beating heart, the food in your stomach or the bed where you lay your head. But sometimes the big things break at the seams, so take a moment to count the little things. Green Sour Patch Kids, your favorite TV show, a good novel, fuzzy socks, things that smell good, long drives, sunsets and imaginary friends. We take what we can get and we make the most of that. Make it magical. 
    And if you can't find big things or little things. Let me be your thing. Let me be the first to tell you that I am thankful for YOU. That you are worth more than you can wrap your head around. That I care what happens to you. That you matter the whole world to me. 
    I live a life comprised solely of moments. And those moments are all thanks to you. Because one day you clicked on a YouTube video, and you found a girl with a twisted sense of humor, a love of Christmas, candles and makeup and you saw something in her. Something enough to bring you back. And before that girl on your computer screen knew it, there were half a million people who got her. And that girl felt a little less alone. And that girl became a somebody. And that girl is living out her wildest dreams. And that girl is me. And this girl says thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving

  14. It was a dream come through when a traveled 4,530 miles just to see Dr. Wakina face to face and to also witness how he does the spell work that got many people talking all over the planet.
    I was happy for the reception I got in his spiritual temple. As a nervous woman, I was astonished the moment Dr. Wakina placed his hands on my forehead and showed me a vision and the future between me and my husband.
    According to the vision, the future between me and my husband lasted for eternity withought any negative effect or external interference.
    The reason why I am going public is because the visions and prophesies towards my entire house hold has already been manifested, today made it three months that Dr. Wakina proved himself to us and it is a thing of joy.
    I humbly share Doctor Wakina email address where he can be reached
    Eternally grateful.

  15. I looked forward to be a whole family again with a love spell, I actually got tired of living a depressing life. I was so unlucky that my husband fell out of love with me; he keeps threatening me with divorce paper almost everyday. But all I wanted in our home are positive thinking, love and happiness all the time. I wanted us to be good parent to our kids. When Dr. Wakina stepped in with his helping hands via I began to feel lighter on the inside, I stopped having that heavy feeling on my chest during the process of the love spell. Two days after, my husband started exhibiting some positive character. He confessed that he was thinking of me more recently even when he was with his girlfriend. I was overwhelmed when he came to me and apologized for every wrong he has done to me, I also apologized to him as well.  Dr. I just want to say thanks for the patience and kindness shown to me during the whole spell process. My husband and I has been living happily after the love spell, none of his exs ever comeback.
