As we are nearing another years end we start to reminisce and reflect on what we are most thankful for during this Holiday season. In one simple word I am thankful for LIFE. I love my life, which consists of a somewhat unconventional yet fabulous family, sometimes stubborn yet precious children, friends that might be spread across miles yet are true to my heart, a job that I love and am passionate about, a home that I may only be renting but is sweet never the less and a wonderful social network at my finger tips everyday all year long.
If you asked me last year what I was thankful for I probably would have said my children. Maybe in particular I might have said I was thankful for spending the Holidays home with Gabby instead of in the hospital with her grasping at life. This year I have learned a lot. I may have learned more than I ever have in my 28 previous years. Sometimes it takes time reflecting on past experiences to learn more from them than actually just living through them. I learned this is my life. It’s not my family’s life. It’s not my children’s life. It’s my life to appreciate and make the best of. Happiness is, however, just a mood. So as I continue to strive towards living in happiness I take a moment this Thanksgiving to acknowledge I am thankful for every single day I have in life and it’s whole entity. I feel very blessed and happy!
