Yet another year has passed, hopefully finding each of us surrounded by the ones we love, and love us back. 
This time of the year always finds me fighting through mixed emotions. I miss my mom, but am also thankful for so many blessings that I've received.

I'm thankful for my family and friends.
I'm thankful for my improving health.
I'm thankful that I have a wonderful medical team.
I'm thankful for each and every one of you.
I'm thankful that I can write again.
I'm thankful for books to read and the ability to read them.
I'm thankful for each and every breath I take.
I'm thankful for my faith.
I'm thankful for our military.
I'm thankful for my life.

This Thanksgiving, as you sit around your bountiful table, please remember to say a prayer for our military and their families.

From our family to yours,
Happy Thanksgiving! 

As always, until next time...

Movie Review of Spy 11/25

Susan Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency's most dangerous missions. But when her partner falls off the grid and another top agent is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global crisis.
- Written by 20th Century Fox
119 minutes in length

My Review
O.M.F.G!! Melissa McCarthy as CIA analyst, Susan Cooper is EVERYTHING! She is my new hero! Her facial expressions are priceless and the one liners are off the chain. I didn't stop laughing through the entire movie. As a matter of fact, I was still laughing an hour after the movie was over. The actions scenes were intense, and up to par with any action movie starring icons like Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, or Vin Diesel! I recommend Spy to anyone and everyone who enjoys laughing and knife fights all at the same time! 

The Cast
Jude Law as Bradley Fine
Jason Statham as Rick Ford
Miranda Hart as Nancy Artingstall
Peter Serafinowicz as Aldo

As always, until next time...

STORM (noun)—a turbulent disturbance; a disruption or dispute.
Jake Wethers’s life is perfect. He’s married to the woman he’s always loved, and they have three beautiful children. The Mighty Storm is still going strong, and his record label is thriving.
Jake has everything—a life he thought he would never have and one that he didn’t think he deserved.
Not so long ago, Jake’s life wasn’t perfect. The unexpected and untimely death of his best friend, Jonny Creed, sent an already out-of-control Jake spiraling down further.
Drug addiction. Alcohol. Women.
Jake was in the fast lane to following Jonny to the grave until Tru Bennett walked back into his life and changed everything.
But now, the past that Jake left behind has come back to find him. And what the past brings with it is going to be one of the biggest challenges he has ever faced.
