I have so much that Im thankful for this year! I cant believe we are wishing each other a Happy Thanksgiving! Seems like the days have gone by so fast!
Usually on the holidays I just say Happy Thanksgiving and leave it at that on my blog…but this year I would like to say a couple of things that I am thankful for! This is in no particular order!!!
Let me start off by Thanking God for another year, and another year to be able to celebrate with my family. This year has been just as emotional if not more than last year. Since Darrick II passed its been a year of “first” with DJ, but also a year of missing Darrick II in the midst of DJ reaching his milestones. But this holiday I plan to spend it with family, and loving on my babies and husband. Darrick and I had a talk and although we are doing some of the traditional things, we plan to just hold each other during these times. We both have mixed emotions about the holidays so what better way to spend them than with each other doing the things we love to do.
Im VERY thankful for Emma’s teachers and therapist. They work very hard with my child and I am grateful. She has developed so much since being in school, and we are very pleased with her progress.
Im thankful for my blog! This year I feel like I have done the most with my blog, its still not quite where I want it to be but I am getting there and I will continue to get there by working hard. Im thankful for the additional income it has generated for myself and my family.
Im thankful for health! We are not in perfect shape or condition but Im very grateful for being able to celebrate this holiday with everyone being in good health.
Im thankful for my social media family, yes not many people can say this but I post a lot on social media. I love sharing about my family, and when I am having a rough day and I may post something…there is always encouragement sent my way.
Im thankful for the moms that I have met through Emma’s school. Its hard being a mom of a special needs child, and sometimes when you talk to other moms that dont have to deal with therapy, and delays they dont understand. But God has sent some women my way that totally understand all that I am dealing with!
Im thankful for a roof over my head, clothes on our backs, the cars we drive, food in the refrigerator…I take NOTHING for granted! God I thank you!
Im also thankful for my cousin getting me into planning. Darrick and I talked about doing one thing a day that is “our-own” thing and this is mine. Every night I check my planner, I may add something to-do, a sticker or two, some washi…whatever, it is its mine and I love this new hobby!
Im thankful for my mother and father…they do so much to help us and Darrick and I couldnt be more thankful!!!
Im thankful for my sister…I love our talks after she gets off work and calls. We usually lay everything on each other but its a conversation that I love having with her.
Im thankful for my morning prayers with my husband. This is something we should’ve been doing from the beginning but we weren’t…but now its like clock work we are up praying with each other every morning and it leaves me with the best feeling when I am going about my daily tasks.
Im thankful for this weather that we have been getting in Cleveland. Its November and we have been getting weather in the 50’s, 60’s and even a few 70 days!
Im thankful for friendship…ones that have been a listening ear to me and I have been a listening ear to them.
Im thankful for my prayer warriors, those I really know that are praying for me and my family!
What are you thankful for this year?
