-I decided to look back at all my Thanksgiving posts that I've done since I started blogging. I did one every year from 2006 until 2011.
-The past 3 years were a time of great transition and change for me. My heart wasn't into blogging. I had high hopes that this year was going to be "easier". It wasn't, BUT, I realized I have A LOT to be thankful for.
-I have learned A LOT over the past 3 years, and I wouldn't trade any of it, even though it has been incredibly hard.
-My list below isn't necessarily in order of importance, and it is by no means exhaustive.
What I'm Thankful For:
-God's Unconditional Love for me through thick and thinPreviously:
-My 4 incredible kids (I can't imagine my life without them)
-My amazing boyfriend (who has taught me how deeply you can really love someone)
-My friends (who have stood with me during my deep valleys)
-My brother (who has been a source of strength and comfort to me these past 3 years)
-My Mom (who is a great listener and a woman of compassion)
-God providing for my needs
-Blogging (it has been a very therapeutic outlet for me and is something that I thoroughly love doing)
-Reading (I met my goal of 60 for this year and am still going strong)
-Books, Movies and Music (they take me to other places and times)
-How God has been opening my eyes over the past 3 years
-God teaching me perseverance through my job struggles
-God giving me a chance to start over
-How God is going to give me the right job at the right time
