I have soooo much to be thankful for! My husband who has been so supportive and loving all these years and for celebrating 25 years with him, my children who all continue to give me so much love and give me true satisfaction being a mom, my family, friends, provisions, a church home we love, women from our church I have the opportunity to mentor and a small home business I didn’t even know I would end up having. And the list just goes on and on!
Though my Dad passed away early this year, I can be thankful of how God is truly healing the pain. It still hurts to not have him around anymore. And my nephew who also passed away just several months ago. So losing two loved ones in one year has been really difficult. But time really heals and I am so thankful for all the great memories and I will always have them in my heart ❤ 🙂
And each Thanksgiving has become a marker for me since 2008 as how my life is returning one year at a time. I’m reminded to be thankful despite the condition and to not waste the opportunity to live! Fibromyalgia really took over my life and I was honestly ready to die or came to a point of accepting my life was just always going to be spent very sick in bed. But God is so good to give me my life back again. Even if I have to wait one year at a time.
Lastly, I am most thankful for God who has shown me the meaning of true love as He sent His one and only son to die on the cross so that we can have a personal relationship with Him–what sacrificial love! I am also thankful that in hardship, I have personally experienced mercy and grace. And seen Christ heal and provide firsthand.
Enjoy your day today with loved ones as you reflect on thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving Day! ❤
