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.
I’m thankful for being a mom. Motherhood is no walk in the park. But I’m thankful that God has seen fit for me to be able to have 3 kids. All my kids are different in their own way. But they are the best. Having children has given me joy, patience, and unconditional love. I’m thankful for all the mistakes that I’ve made being a mother. I don’t know who I would be if I didn’t have children. My kids have taught me lessons that I will carry forever. My children have made me a better person and mother. I’m very grateful for my children.
I’m thankful for my marriage. Marriage has taught me so much about myself. For one I’m a super giver. I’ve always been a giver and it has only increased in my life. I have learned to support and encourage like never before. Marriage is not for the faint of heart. It takes a lot of time and dedication. Marriage can either make you or break you. I’m so thankful for my marriage. It hasn’t always been easy but the work that we have put into it makes it so worth it. I’m glad that God found me worthy to be someone’s helpmate. I’m thankful for 9 years of marriage.
