Thanksgiving

This week is bittersweet for me, but I have a lot to be thankful for.

I’m thankful for my husband who has stood by me through everything.  He is my best friend, the protector of my heart, my love.

I’m thankful for my family who has supported me and believed in me, even when I’m feeling insecure.  They have been my cheerleaders since I was little, and I’m so thankful for that support and love.

I’m thankful for my husband’s family who loved me and welcomed me from day one.  Your excitement for life is addictive, and I’ve learned so much from you.

I’m thankful for my community.  It comes in different shapes and sizes.  From people who have known me my whole life to those who have only known me a few months.  From the people IRL to those I’ve met only online.  I have been so grateful for the comments, hugs (real and virtual), and prayers.  You all are so awesome.

I’m thankful for God, his son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit that guides me every day.  God gave me all of the things I have listed.  I  know that there are so many who live in darkness, fear, and hate, who need to know the love of God.  I pray that His light shines in my life, even in my darkest moments.  I’m so grateful that he continues to walk with me through this journey.

Thank you for reading.  Thank you for listening.  Thank you for praying.  May you be surrounded by the people who love you today.  May you find joy and peace in your circumstances.  And may you know that no matter what is happening today, you don’t have to go through it alone.

Happy Thanksgiving.
