Thanksgiving is a time where we take the opportunity to reflect on what we are thankful for in life. Traditionally I take to my social media accounts to post about what I am thankful for today. However, I decided to instead share here all the things that I am thankful for, not just today, but everyday.
Family that is always there: I am extremely lucky to have family that supports me, encourages me and is there for me no matter what.
An amazing partner to navigate this crazy life with: (Yes, I am talking about you Aaron) Someone who is not only the love of my life but my best friend as well. It is an extremely rare find and I can not express enough how thankful I am for that.
Children that challenge me, inspire me and push me to be the best mom and person I can be: They also teach me how to be more patient, kind and imaginative.
A job that I love: Sometimes (okay, most of the time) I complain about working but I still love what I do. I love being a nurse.
Friends that understand my hectic life but still want to be my friend despite only hanging out every few weeks: The older I get the more I realize that having a lot of friends is less important then having a small group of good friends who understand you and love you through the good times and the bad.
The ability to overcome: If you asked me a few years ago if I was happy I would have said yes but I secretly was slowly dying inside. I overcame a lot in my previous relationship and I am stronger for it. I also have to overcome the doubts I have everyday that I’m a terrible mom and nurse. The doubts that I will fail as a blogger. So I am thankful for my ability to push past these thoughts most days and continue on.
Lastly, I am thankful for all of you: The ones that have been following my journey from the beginning. Thank you for taking the time to read, share and comment. I appreciate it more then I can say. Stay tuned for some new posts in the next few weeks!
