Make Me Up Mia: A Lifestyle & Beauty Blog: Who are you thankful for?

Who are you thankful for?

I was listening to the radio on the way to work and they were discussing how people always say what they are thankful for as in their family, friends, job, etc. They said, how about you be more specific and say who you are thankful for, a specific person.

It’s thanksgiving and I am so very thankful for my little brother Christian, and to God for keeping him on this earth with us. Today our family will be spending Thanksgiving in the hospital with Christian. It will be different for sure, but I am just so thankful that Christian is still with us, that he is here to celebrate with us.

Can he eat turkey or bug the heck out of me like he normally does? No, but that is ok. I’ll take it.

It’s so easy to be thankful when things are going great, but what about when things are not ideal and you’ve been dealt an awful situation? Don’t get me wrong, we have our days. We would not be human if we didn’t. I spent half the day Monday crying in my office. It happens. I’m sad for my little brother, that he has to go through this and I can’t take it from him or help him. I’m sad for my parents, that they are now indefinitely living in a rehab center day in and day out watching their 16 year old son struggle to even hold his head up.  That doesn’t mean I give up or do not believe 100% in God for a miraculous healing for Christian.

We have to stay positive for Christian, we are his support and cheerleaders. We know that God IS healing him. It’s all in Gods timing, and we believe he is working in the lives of so many others through Christian. We believe one day Christian will stand up and give his testimony.

My little baby brother that, just like any younger sibling, drove me nuts at times. The boy who had to constantly inform me of how many Instagram followers he had.  (can't blame him, 21k is pretty impressive bro) The boy who used to cry when I wouldn’t let him in my room to hang out with my friends and I. The boy who just wanted to come up and spend weekends with me. The boy who just wanted to be loved by everyone. Today he is who I am most thankful for, my hero, the strongest person I know. I can’t wait to hang out with him again, one day soon.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, hug those near to you today!


  1. Oh my heart! We love you, Christian and your whole family! Your trust and faith in God through this horrific journey has been rock solid and incredibly encouraging!! We are believing with you that God is continuing to work miracles everyday in Christian, your family and beyond!

  2. We pray each night for God to be with Christian and carry him through these times as well as all of you. Grandma has told me for some time now how Christian wants to be a preacher, and i know that when he is healed, he will be able to preach about how God guided him through this awful event and made him stronger, he is a true miracle. Happy Thanksgiving, Love your cousin, Angie
