Good morning loves:-) I hope that your having a great Thanksgiving Eve. I am looking forward to spending time with my family and most of all EATING…my mouth is watering as I type this…lol! During this time of year, I encourage you to take time to reflect on all of the good that you have experienced just this year. Sometimes it is easier to recall all of the negatives…I’m sure you could give me five right now without much thought. Right now reflect, look around you. What has brought you smiles, laughter, pleasure, and peace. For me, I am grateful to be employed with benefits. I went almost 6 months without health insurance…this was scary because I have chronic asthma. I know that my current job is not my ideal job….I am thankful for the experience and the opportunity to serve others. I am also thankful for my family. What I have come to realize is that all families have dysfunction….some more than others. I am so grateful to have parents who truly have had my best interest at heart all of my life. I am thankful for the closed doors that I thought should have been opened. I realized that those closed doors and rejection has helped strengthen my drive and determination. I also probably avoided some misfortune. Some doors have to close so that I step into the right door. I am thankful that I have the ability to love, be loved, and share love.
As I continue to think, I am blessed and so are you! I would like to share this scripture with you. “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (New Living Translation).
