Thank you so much for the birthday love yesterday. Yesterday was amazing. Words can’t express how much I enjoyed yesterday. My husband and daughter made yesterday so amazing. For the first time yesterday, I felt comfortable in my skin. I loved me, all of me with no excuse. I have always been small or some may call me skinny. But I have never felt comfortable in my skin because people use to tease me when I was younger. And as I got older people use to say girl you need to eat. But the truth is I know I eat more than they do, but what bothered me so much was why people always questioned my weight? I was healthy and that’s what mattered most to me. But yesterday as I was trying on clothes I felt amazing. I finally felt beautiful and it made me think that my size has nothing to do with how I feel about myself. I know my self-worth. I have let my past define me and not anymore. I love me and my size. Yesterday taught me that no matter what I need to speak life and love over myself. Despite what’s going on I had an amazing day yesterday. And to be honest being in my 40’s is amazing. I’ve learned and grown so much. If I could leave you with one thing please don’t ever let anyone make you feel less than. I love how my family and friends showed me so much love yesterday. But more importantly, they show me love all the time. I need that because sometimes I don’t feel like I’m enough. But to be honest I am enough and will always be enough. So thank you so much for the birthday love yesterday.
In this time we are in right now I sit back and become so humble and thankful. I’m thankful that my family isn’t sick, I’m thankful that my husband and daughter still have a job, I’m thankful we were able to pay our rent yesterday. I’m thankful for my mom’s health, I’m thankful that my son’s don’t have to work right now, I’m thankful for all the doctor’s and nurse’s. I’m thankful to be alive, I’m thankful that I’m still in my right mind, I’m thankful to be able to praise God another day. Please be thankful in this season that we are in right now. No complaining just give thanks.
I would like to say thank you to everyone who follows and reads my blog. It means a great deal to me to know that you have taken the time to read my blog. There are so many blogs out there that have so much information. Thank you for going on this journey called life with me as I grow, make mistakes and learn valuable life lessons. I was told to give people their flowers while they are still alive. So thank you so much for all the love and comments on my blog. You all make this so worth it. Again thank you.
Yesterday was a good day. This was the first time I have ever spent a holiday with my dad. My dad surprised me with a visit to Texas. It was good but weird. I had never spent any type of holiday with my dad. It was nice to spend time with him. Hope everyone had a nice holiday.
I’m thankful that I have so much to be thankful for. I will never take anything for granted again. It has been a real eye opener to list everything that I’m thankful for. I have never really taken the time to do that. There are so many other things that I’m thankful for but these are some that came to mind right away. I’m glad that I took the time to list what I’m thankful for. Thank you for going with me on this journey of me being thankful.
I’m thankful for my granny. You have no idea what my granny means to me. She is like a mom, sister, a friend rolled into one. I love this woman unconditionally. She has made me a better person. The wisdom that I glean from her and the love that she gives me is the best. I know we all have grandmothers who are special but mines is one in a million. I can’t tell you how many times I have called her just to hear her voice. My granny is the sweetest, kindest most loving person you will ever meet. I can’t thank God enough for her in my life.
I’m thankful for second chances. We all need second chances because when we mess up in life we need a re-do. The older I get the more I need second chances. They help you become a better you. Life is full of surprises that we need second chances. Thank you, Lord, for second chances.
I’m thankful that I got to tell my grandpa how much he meant to me. My grandpa has been gone for almost two years now. This man was like a father to me. He loved me unconditionally. He made sure that I was okay. I miss our Sunday football game talks. I loved to hear him laugh. I miss my grandpa so bad, but I know that he is watching over me. I’m thankful for the relationship that we had. If you knew my grandpa he was a quiet man. But he had a huge heart. He is missed so much. I’m thankful that God blessed me with such an amazing grandfather. Even though you’re gone you never will be forgotten.
I’m thankful for my dad. As many of you know I didn’t grow up with my dad. My parents were married and divorced by the time I was 7. I didn’t have a relationship with my dad until I became an adult. It took some work to get to where we are now. And I must say it was worth it. I remember growing up and my mom would comment about how much like my dad I was. My dad and I have love sports, cooking and being around family and friends. One thing about my dad and I is that we don’t care about fashion. I’m glad that my kids get to have a relationship with my children. I’m blessed to be able to pick up the phone and call my dad and laugh with him. I’m thankful that we have a great relationship.
I’m thankful for my WordPress family. What would I do without my WordPress community? I’m thankful for the encouraging words, love, and support that you have shown me. This love and encouragement have made it easier for me to tell my story and the things that I’m going through. I have always loved to read and write. And now that I have a community that shows me nothing but love, well how can you not be thankful for that. Please keep supporting me, encouraging me, commenting, and showing me love. You don’t know how much I appreciate it.
