Rocker Bret hit highs and lows this past year — and we just hope his next year is filled with health and happiness!

Bret Michaels had a whirlwind year! The rocker turned 48 on March 16 and he definitely has a lot to be thankful for. Not only did Bret win Donald Trump‘s Celebrity Apprentice, he survived major surgery after a near-devastating brain hemorrhage. Along with these moments of pain and happiness, Bret also became engaged to his longtime girlfriend Kristi Gibson in December!On his VH1 reality show Life As I Know It we watched him be a great dad to his girls Jorja, 5, and Raine, 10, and show that he’s still doing what he loves the most — touring! We hope Bret is with his loved ones in his hometown of Scottsdale, Ariz., on this special day!

Way to go Bret for coming out on top and here’s to the next 48 years!
