This is my first ever blog. If it weren't for the request of my dear friend, I wouldn't be doing it now as it feels awkward & is definitely out of my comfort zone. Nonetheless, I do have MANY things to be thankful for & I'm almost ashamed that it takes a holiday and a friend request to acknowledge these things in black & white. Following are the main things that truly bless my life.
I am thankful for my two children. They are growing up so quickly & the time we have together is so precious. I wish there was more time to be had especially with my daughter who turned 18 this year and moved back home to WA state.
I am thankful for my family. Sometimes you don't fully appreciate what you have until it is no longer near. This has become so clear with all of my family now on the other side of the states. I will never take for granted the limited time we get to spend together.
I am thankful for my friends. I believe that God puts people in our lives for a reason & as a result, I have a handful of people that have truly touched my heart in many ways. I hope these people will always be with me.
I am thankful for a God who always provides for me and my famiily. A God who is always faithful when I wander off my path. A God who always loves me when I am unloveable. A God who will never leave or forsake me.
But for the grace of God go I.
