I have so so so so so much to be thankful for. I have no doubt that I am entirely and completely B L E S S E D. So, I'll take a stab at listing all of the things I have to be thankful for (Lord knows I'll probably leave something or someone out and apologies just in case.) I have supportive, faith-filled parents that love each other dearly, love me and my brother and will do anything and everything for me/us. I have incredibly amazing, supportive, caring, hilarious and fun friends. After almost a year of unemployment I've been offered a job and it's such a perfect fit for me it's eerily scary yet insanely exciting at the same time. I look forward to submitting my official acceptance. (Eeeeeeek!) I moved into the most perfect condo in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Charlotte last month — the kind of place that all of my furniture fits perfectly in, a place that's historic with tons of character and everytime I walk through the door I feel HOME and it's MINE. I am healthy. I am strong enough to be training for a half-marathon and fully enjoy all of my training runs whether they are 3 miles or 10. God has blessed me with creative talents, writing talents and the ability to make friends with just about anyone. My family is healthy. The only real true love that I have ever known is what I feel for my pup (SwankyPooch, duh.) but I get to experience it every. single. day. I don't need anything (but there are plenty of things I want ... so I'm certainly no holier than thou.) I genuinely enjoy life — I love the laughter, the emotions, the experiences, my friends, the music, the food, the fun. I have sight and I can hear. I have an education. I have food, a warm place to sleep and running water. My man upstairs (God, obvi) continuously looks out for me, protects me and guides my path every single day — He meets my needs and makes my dreams come true. Bottom line: I. AM. GRATEFUL and BLESSED. 100 percent. And if I ever for a second seem to act as though I might have forgotten that ... remind me of this post, would ya?
Happy Thanksgiving, Peaches. I am thankful for you, too! (Thanks for reading my blog!)
