Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. Today I am reflecting on the last few months as another month ends. My time to take stock of things I have done/ accomplished in the last four months. I look at my goals and scratch some off and others stare right back at me and I feel this sudden pain inside, I have once again left some things undone due to procrastination on my part and some just didn’t work out plain n simple. I feel frustrated and a few tears roll down my cheeks afterwards. I decided this morning not to focus on what I haven’t done but on my triumphs and things that I am thankful for today. It’s especially difficult to write about what I am thankful for when I am faced with major road blocks but I chose to remind myself of all that I am blessed with and uplift someone’s spirit today after all my bible tells me to be thankful in all circumstances (1Thessalonians 5:18)
I am thankful for my husband. The amazing man that God blessed me with. I feel like I won the lottery when I think about him sometimes. I am not just saying this because he is my husband:-) He is a wonderful human being, just ask anyone who knows him. He is not perfect, but who is, lol. He supports me and encourages me even when I have given up, he sees the GOOD. He picks up when I can’t handle things n just gets things done, anything and everything. He loves every bit of me the good bad and the ugly, cos it does get ugly, lol. He taught me to love myself even on the outside where I saw more flaws than beauty 🙂
I am thankful for my children even when I get frustrated and yell and scream, they show nothing but love. The love a child has and gives is so PURE and my prayer to God is for strength and wisdom to be a great mom to my angels 🙂
I am thankful for my parents, their prayers especially. I still can’t believe my dad now sends me weekly prayers (story for another time) they have taught me so much about being resilient and being strong regardless of what is going on.
I am thankful for my readers, your comments, emails, ig dms everything! It encourages me greatly and pushes me to do more with my platform:-)
I am thankful for having the privilege to reconnect with some of my high school mates. This past few weeks or months have truly being a blessing to me. I have made connection I never knew were possible and I have learned A LOT from you guys (don’t get me started, lol) I have learned things about myself and they have even pushed me and encouraged me in ways I never thought possible. I have laughed so hard and even cried but most importantly I have felt LOVE from across the oceans from this amazing family 🙂
I woke up this morning feeling deflated and defeated but I have so much to be thankful for so I chose to embrace that and press forward because I have so much already and it only gets better. Dusting the negative energy/dirt off my shoulders and off to make things happen so help me God 🙂 Excited about what May has in stock for me. Wishing you an amazing May! What are you thankful for today?
