Now that thanksgiving has come to an end I have really sat and thought about the things I am so incredibly thankful for. I can reflect on the things that mean the most to me.
God has given me so many blessings and things to be grateful for. The list is so long but here I will name a few.
My family. Gosh I could go on forever about how amazing they are and how I really don’t know what I would do without them. I can’t believe how blessed I am to have each and every one of them. Now that we are all home under one roof, I can let every moment sink in. We may have times where we all get on each others nerves but I wouldn’t trade having everyone home again for the world. I love having my sole support system with me whenever I need them or whenever I need someone to vent to. They’re all right there for me. I am so loved by this sweet family of mine.
My fiancè. Wow that’s something I still need to get used to. I am blessed beyond measure to have someone who loves me unconditionally. He deals with a lot and I give him lots of praise for that but more importantly, he’s there when I need him most. He’s so patient with me and that’s something God knew I needed when finding a future spouse. And that’s exactly what God did. He gave me someone I needed and he has been my rock since February 14, 2014.
Oh my sweet sweet friends. The ones who are just a phone call away and will go on a sporadic Target run with me! Just kidding! But really…. I love that I have another support system of such lovely girls who let me be myself around and who are there for constant encouragement.
My biggest blessing of all? My God. Oh how amazing He is! I wouldn’t have these things if it weren’t for him. I always have to remind myself how blessed I am to have true unconditional love and grace. God is great beyond all measures and compares to nothing. He is all I really need and I am forever grateful for Him!
One of the things I really love that he has given me is a big heart. I also have a fragile heart. I never want to hurt anyone. But sometimes it hurts me in the end. Having a big heart is so great but being so sensitive isn’t the greatest because it sucks to feel hurt over things that don’t really matter in the end. I also feel like I need to please everyone. No matter the situation, I just want to make everyone happy. Maybe it’s because I have a big heart and that’s a way God uses me. It’s always best to be kind to one another and be the bigger person. I have learned that a lot this year and I am glad I have.
When I reflect on this year and the things in my life, I realize I do have a lot to be thankful for. Never forget the things you have been blessed with! Always acknowledge it too!
