Day 27: My Post on Gratefulness

grateful So because it’s Thanksgiving I figure I should write about things I am grateful for. Of course, I am grateful for a lot of things.

  1.  Always number one on my list is my children. They have changed me and my life in more ways than I can count.
  2. My parents. When I knew I was getting a divorce, the first people I told were my parents; even though I thought they’d be disappointed with me. Guess what? All I received from them were hugs and a lot of unconditional love. My parents have been my number one supporters over the years.
  3. My sisters. We’ve had our differences over the years but you know what? They’re pretty cool. And they are not just my sisters, they are my friends.
  4. I am grateful for all of my friends, old and new. One of the things that amazes me is the fact that I am still in touch with people I knew in kindergarten! Over the years a lot of people have come into my life. Some are no longer there. Many still are; even if it is in a small capacity like being in touch through Facebook.
  5. I am grateful for my life; and this point where I am at today. Everything that has happened to me over the course of my life (the past few years especially) have brought me to the place where I am at today. I can honestly say that I am at a place where I know peace and complete joy.

One of the things that someone told me when I was going through my divorce was to envision the life that I wanted to have. I was at a point of complete hopelessness, and couldn’t imagine my life getting any better. The question I was asked was: When I knew happiness and joy, where would I be?

The answer is Here.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.  I hope this day finds you with lots of things to be grateful for.
