Today is the day we celebrate all that we are thankful for, remembering and cherishing.
My list is pretty simple, but of course unique to who I am.
I am Thankful for my wonderful and incredible boys. I have the privilege of watching them grow and learn each and every day. I cherish the innocence they see the world with, and the love they show.
I am Thankful to have been given this new chance at life. Just a few years ago, I knew I was in a rut, but had no idea how to get myself out of it. I never realized that the rut was my marriage, and that shedding it would wake me up to a world of possibilities. I am doing what I can to not take this life for granted, and to find as much joy in it as I can.
I am Thankful for a handful of wonderful, awesome friends. Without their love and support, and a lot of listening and understand, I would not be where I am today. They helped keep me sane when my world was falling down around me, they helped me remember that my boys were what mattered... I could get through anything with them surrounding me.
I am Thankful for Love. I have fallen in love again, unbidden and so surprising. I really did not expect to be here at this point in my journey, but I am. He has shown me more compassion, caring and need than I had seen in more years than I care to think about. He has helped to awaken the person I was starting to become when I met my ex, the person I repressed for all those years. He, I think, has enjoyed watching me grow as much as I have relished each and every step.
I am Thankful to whatever God/Deity is out there watching over us. I have spent most of my life questioning my spiritual path, and am finally realizing that I don't need to fight anymore. I do believe there is a God, but I don't believe he is the God found in the Bible. I'm not sure I can fully explain what I believe, I think that will be a post for another night.
I wish everyone out there could find their way through whatever sorrows they have, to see what a treasure our lives really are. We all have the potential to be happy.
