I’m so thankful and blessed to be surrounded by such great people, including family, co-workers and friends. Here’s hoping that everyone gets their fill of turkey and all of the trimmings this Thanksgiving. Go Cowboys! Happy Turkey Day everyone!

I am thankful for the people at Southeast Texas Hospice, my loving and supportive husband, my friends Benitris Edwards, Mary Ekene, Billy Dorman and Cynthia McClelland for reminding me there are better days ahead. Thank you to my wonderful in-laws for being there for us during this holiday season.

Being traditional, I am thankful for my very supportive husband even with my chaotic schedules of being a mom, working and business life! Also, being thankful to God every day for my amazing children, Jacob and William, my parents Bryan and Donna Richard, Godchild Karson Caesar with The Caesar Family and great friends.  Thankful for all of my clients allowing me to be their go-to personnel for all of their business marketing needs and beyond!
