On the day before Thanksgiving, I think it is suiting to talk about what I am thankful for. There are several family traditions that happen during this holiday, but I believe the one common practice is to give thanks.
I am thankful for my two children. They are two amazing boys that make me laugh, cry and frustrated, amongst many other emotions. What they do most is make me feel proud to be their mother. They have accomplished and overcome so many things in their short lives. They show me that anything is possible. I am in awe at their strength and unconditional love they have for others.
The time I was able to spend with my late husband is something to be thankful for. It was not as long as I planned for, but he taught me so much. He helped create the person I am today and his death has created an undefined appreciation that I have for life now. He left me with that one final gift in my life.
My family and friends have been there for me in the ups and downs. With their help I was able to get through things in my life, I once thought impossible. I probably could have done it on my own, but their support made it so much easier for me.
I am thankful for the organizations that have supported my families and other families throughout the United States. For all of you that follow me and read my words. You give me inspiration and confidence that what I am doing is important.
I am also thankful for my admirer. I did not think that it would be possible to love another man after losing my husband, but it is. I am grateful he has entered my life. We are able to look into one another’s eyes and really see each other. He shows me each day who I am and gives me boundless love.
So thankful for all the love that surrounds me, strength, beautiful moments and joyful memories. May beautiful moments, joyful memories and love surround you during the holiday.
