As Thanksgiving draws close, I have been making a point to think about how lucky and thankful I am this year. I have had a lot of bumps and detours this year. I have shed more tears of frustration, sadness, regret and loneliness then I would have liked. Even with the hard times, there have been a lot of wonderful things happen too.
I am so lucky. I really am, and it is what keeps me going. I have such wonderful family members that have done nothing but stand close by and love and support me through a difficult time. My friends……I don’t know what I would have done with out them. They have cried with me, made me laugh, reminded me when I was being foolish, and ultimately given me the best advice. It is an honor to call them my friends.
And my luck doesn’t stop there. I am so lucky to be healthy. I have watched so many important people in my life and/or in others lives fall ill. It breaks my heart when someone loses a friend or family member too early. I just hope to stay healthy and live a long happy life.
All of this luck I have in my life has helped me in so many ways. I finally feel optimistic again. I looked at myself in the mirror and was able to just smile! How great is that! I am slowly starting to feel like it wasn’t all my fault anymore. I don’t feel like a waste of space.
So thank you, to all of you that have helped get me here. I can’t express enough, how thankful I truly feel.
