I got my first tattoo in March. I shaved with a soap and brush for the first time in my life on Christmas Day. I combined it with a safety razor and the experience was incredible. Mom got me cream and a Gillete razor for Christmas when I was old enough to shave because my father wasn't around much during that time, but I think the old-fashioned way is the best.
Several people have blessed us with things we needed such as a new dryer and diapers. Santa sent me a ton of goodies that arrived Christmas Eve.
Lastly, I am thankful I didn't need surgery this year like I did the previous two years. I did have to go the emergency room, but at least no overnight stays. I also kicked my soda habit and haven't had a Mountain Dew since late August.
I am very thankful to God and am looking forward to next year.
