Day 59: 2/28/2014

For a man born 92 years ago today, and for my good luck to call him my grandfather. All the adventures I remember having and for all the amazing memories I will get to share in the future with him. I cherish every single day I get to share in this world with him. Happy 92nd birthday grandpa!

Day 57: 2/26/2014

For being able to catch a glimpse of Air Force One fly over your office. To put all my knowledge of being able to decipher ATC calls and knowing when exactly they will be flying overhead is amazing. A mere few seconds made my entire week complete

Day 56: 2/25/2014

Day 55: 2/24/2014

Friday, February 21, 2014

Day 52: 2/21/2014

For modern transportation that will get me home 1100 miles away in under 3 hours. For pre-flight checklists that will get me home safe (or at least safer)

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Day 51: 2/20/2014

For being given the chance to spend a night on a $40,000 bed. I am not going to say that it was the most amazing of beds, and call it the power of suggestion but it was a very restful sleep that night

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Day 50: 2/19/2014

For the simple pleasure of wearing shorts and sandals in the middle of February. Being able to wear it while at work is priceless

Day 49: 2/18/2014

For such a gorgeous place that I can call "home" for this week. Not only is the accommodation comfortable, it is just peaceful and serene. All I need to retreat from the world is to sit in my patio and close my front gate to shut the world out

Monday, February 17, 2014

Day 48: 2/17/2014

For a beautiful day greeting me as I arrive in a place far from home. Work travel gets taxing after a while but I take the simple pleasures of a sunny day to count my blessings

Sunday, February 16, 2014

Day 47: 2/16/2014

Friday, February 14, 2014

Day 45: 2/14/2014

For surprise night cross-country flights filled with amazing music, flawless landings and great company. I live for moments like these

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Day 43: 2/12/2014

For minor accidents that didn't result in a loss of life. Cars can always be fixed but people are impossible to replace. I am just glad he did not leave my life that day 

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Day 42: 2/11/2014

For views as such, for they let me enjoy the simple beauty of a road. How wonderful it is to simply be driven around San Francisco and enjoying the sunshine

Monday, February 10, 2014

Day 41: 2/10/2014

For amazing cups of coffee to sustain me through my 15-hour work day. The people that made this did not have to go through the effort of preparing such amazing cups of amazingness, but they did and I am forever grateful 

Sunday, February 9, 2014

Day 40: 2/9/2014

For a job (as trying and stressful as it may be) that allows me to travel the country and encounter unique experiences. From the funny to the lifestyles of the rich and famous. This has been an amazing time

Saturday, February 8, 2014

Day 39: 2/8/2014

For a plane that gives me the fuel I need to deal with real life. This one plane has been a rock and anchor in my life. It has been a giver of fresh air, an iron rod when I am falling part and "my baby". Who would have thought it would mean so much to me 

Friday, February 7, 2014

Day 38: 2/7/2014

For "Food Fridays" with co-workers (and friends). Lunch isn't just lunch with these friends of mine. They make going to work bearable and a much better place

Thursday, February 6, 2014

Day 37: 2/6/2014

For a mother that has you on her mind even when you are long grown and is no longer a little child. She sent these red packets for Chinese New Year as a gesture of fortune for the year ahead 

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Day 36: 2/5/2014

For time to spend with Mochi and friends at the dog park. Nothing like communing with nature and all it's inhabitants

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Day 35: 2/4/2014

For reminders whenever I go that life offers so much more if we would only notice it. Our possibilities are limitless and that's such comfort to me

Day 33: 2/2/2014

Day 32: 2/1/2014

For the financial ability to enjoy a simple cup of latte at the local coffee shop. There's something just relaxing about reading by a fire and nursing that cup of hot coffee on a cold night
