There is maybe no greater time than now, given everything that has been happening in our lives, to give thanks.
My family and I are blessed with each other, a loving family, caring friends and soon excellent health again.
This is the week before Thanksgiving, a holiday that typically is more about gathering and eating than reflecting on thanks. But this year, it feels different.
It feels like I can’t say thank you enough to people in my lives. That I can’t feel grateful enough for what I have been given – blessings in the form of 2 sweet children and a husband to cherish them with. Even in the darkest of times, in the hardest of days, we have each other to draw love and support from. And we will have each other for years to come.
We still have some mountains to climb, some fearful days, but they will all end in sunshine. There is no choice. We have to make it so. His health will return, and we will continue to live. And LIVE with enthusiasm.
Life is hard sometimes. The day to day can seem like an eternity. A struggle. But for most of us, happiness is rooted somewhere. Gifts take different forms. Perspective is important.
It’s Thanksgiving week and I am forever thankful for so many things.
What are you thankful for?
