10 Things I Am Most Thankful For
'Tis the season to give thanks!
Although Thanksgiving holiday has past, I am thankful all year around, but this seems to be the season to give thanks especially. There are many things that I could share with you about my life and why I am thankful, but that would truly be a lengthy list! So, I thought I would share a few...
1. I am Thankful for life
There have been so many people that lost their lives, some violently, some in accidents this year that we knew or was a sibling of someone we knew. Some died before the age of 30 or 40 even. Life is not promised!
2. I am thankful for my relationship with God
He has never left my side and has always been there. It sounds very cliche' but he has given me peace in my life during stormy times.
3. I am thankful for my son
My son is the light of my life and I am so thankful for him! He is beautiful, healthy and I love him so much! We had a difficult road to pregnancy with 3 previous miscarries and him trying to come too early but after 3 months of bed rest he's here!
4. I am thankful for my husband
Who is my bestie, supportive of my creative efforts and decision to become an entrepreneur officially, that is an awesome father to our son and wonderful provider.
5. I am thankful for my family and friendship
My mom and dad have instilled in me life long values that I pass on to my son, also my grandmothers, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends keep me young, hip and grounded.
6. I am thankful for a right mind, vision and health
Being young doesn't mean anything, I could be in several different bad situations right now. I know three people I grew up with that struggle with debilitating disorders and have to fight daily to breathe, see and do normal stuff you should be able to do in your 30's.
7. I am thankful for a safe home
Being raised in south kansas city and then moving to east kansas city and then back to south kansas city, I am just thankful to live where I feel safe in my home. Many people don't have that luxury.
8. I am thankful for the courage to pursue my passion
I have been in love with writing for awhile and have been wanting to pursue my passion fully for along time. This fall I was handed a invitation to be able to do what I love full time and be good at it. Blessing do come in disguise sometime.
9. I am thankful for love
Some people never experience true love and I lucky to have found it.
10. I am thankful for peace
I can't stand drama! I am thankful for the drama-free life and being able to hand my troubles over to the Lord.
