Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
As much as I love the festive decorations and the delicious foods, today is much more than that to me. It is a day to truly be thankful for everything in life that I am blessed with (I am everyday but this day especially makes me grateful). To think about the positive in everything you have & forget about the negative. I am one that always seems to overlook the things I am blessed with when things aren't going exactly the way I planned.
Each and everyday I am truly thankful for my family. They are my rock, my world. We are all so close & have such a special bond that many families do not have. No matter what happens in life I know that I can count on them. Being with my family is truly the only place that I feel a sense of peace. They mean the world to me & I will forever cherish & be grateful for the many laughs, great advice, & the crazy stories & jokes that forever hold us all together as a family.
I am also thankful for my job. As stressful as it is, I am beyond grateful that I have it. There are so many people that don't have a job & the opportunities to learn new things all the time. Being with a successful company, that will offer me the ability to grow in my career is truly a blessing. Oh yeah, I get to wear jeans everyday which is also pretty awesome!
|Don't we all !? ;)|
Eleven weeks ago, we sold our house & moved in with my mom. Selling our house was bittersweet for us, but it was something that was best for the future of our family; and it was such a blessing that we were able to sell it in less than three months & make a little money from it for our future home. I am beyond thankful that my mom allowed my husband & I to cramp her style for the next year or so, so we can save money, pay off some bills & build a new home. I will be forever grateful & am so happy that we are under one roof for the holidays.
I am also thankful for my grandpa's health. This year has been rough on him. I prayed for his health constantly and God truly answered my (& my whole family's) prayers. My grandpa was able to recover & move into a new home very close to all of us, which is a true blessing. No matter what is going on in life, he always knows how to bring a smile to my face. He is full of jokes, love and kindness & I am grateful God helped him to heal.
We all have something to be thankful for & I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family & friends.
