Might Be In Over My Head…Maybe?

Thanksgiving Banner from www.wifemomhouseohmy.comHappy Thanksgiving Everyone!

By now I hope everyone has enjoyed their turkey, been stuffed with stuffing and got their delicious piece of pumpkin pie loaded with whipped cream. I hope you were all surrounded by those you love and that the mood was one of peace and love.

This year I took time to be thankful for all the wonderful and amazing things I have been blessed with in my life. Once I started, I found that I had so many wonderful things in my life and as I thought of one, another came to mind, and another, and another. In the end, I found I had this serene and peaceful, warm calm about me. I felt filled and surrounded by abundance and love. I felt awed. I encourage you before you go to sleep tonight, try this for yourself. Write them down, say them out loud, say them to someone or speak them to your soul but I think you will be amazed at how you feel afterward.

Here are some of the things I feel grateful for and for which I give much thanks.

  1. I am so thankful for the people in my life…my husband – who has graciously let me focus on dealing with health challenges and figure out how they get managed in my life and how to live life around them, my mother – who is the strongest woman I know, unbelievably compassionate and wise and always there for me, my friends – who despite who I am and all my faults except and love me, my son – who despite us butting our heads a lot lately I am so grateful beyond words that God brought in to my life.
  2. I am so very thankful that after 17 years I was finally able to see and heal with my father’s family, most of whom I have not seen or spoken to since his funeral. Though awkward and scary, I am glad that the distance, time and rift I have felt is starting to be mended and I hope it will not be another 17 years till I see them again.
  3. I am so thankful for my furry babies who remind me daily what unconditional love is, that bring such joy to my life and for how they teach me something everyday.
  4. I am so thankful for my home and the roof it provides and all the luxuries with in and that I have the luxury to complain about its challenges. I know the grace of God is the only reason I have it.
  5. I am thankful beyond words for this blog and for those that read it. It is a wonderful outlet for me to share what I learn and experience as well as a deeply fulfilling creative venture.
  6. I am thankful for the challenges with my health, for they could be so much worse, and they remind me that I am still alive and to not take that for granted.
  7. I am thankful for the meal I enjoyed today. I know that there are many people today who will go without food.
  8. I am thankful that for all our nation’s challenges that I live here and for all our military that protect and serve so that I have the freedoms I do.

There are so many more that I could right several posts trying to get through them all. Again I encourage you to try this yourself. It is amazing what you will feel afterwards. What are you thankful for this year?

Always love hearing from readers! What do you think of today's post?
