Good Morning & Happy Thursday! Today’s post is one that I wasn’t hoping to write anytime soon, but unfortunately I think it’s the best thing to do. Many of you know that I started Thankful Thursday months ago. Unfortunately, the link-up isn’t as active as I was hoping when I first started this campaign.
I didn’t want to have to end it so soon, but I just feel the time has come. So where does that leave it? Well, I will still continue to share things about myself, my family, and just life in general that I’m thankful for, but it will be sporadically throughout the week, not just on one certain day.
No matter the ups & downs you my face in life, I want all of to know that you are loved and beautiful, and that there is always something to be Thankful for! So when your upset or angry at someone or something, just try to remind yourself that things could always be worse. Know that God will never let you suffer, yet he’ll guide you into the right direction <3.
But for today, before I end this link-up, I want to share a couple things I am thankful for in my life today:
- I’m thankful for my husband; the man who is supportive, caring, driven, honest, and just all around the most amazing person I’ve ever met. I cannot, and refuse to ever live without him. He’s not just my husband, he’s my best friend & life companion
- I’m thankful for my family; both my parents and Joshua’s. As hard as it was being in the states without Joshua, they never let me feel alone. We shared lots of love, and laughter with one another that will forever be in my heart.
- I’m thankful for life; I know that sounds a bit cliche, but it’s true. Sure things aren’t always perfect, but what would be the fun in that? I truly do believe you need to experience challenges, and hardships. Those are the things that help mold you into the person you are today. They give you the strength and courage to move on when you don’t think it’s possible. But life isn’t just about challenges, life is about living & having fun! You are the creator of your life, you determine the outcome. So smile, because you know know whose looking your way!
&& that’s all I have for you today! I do hope that many of you will take a day out of the week, whether you post it on your blog, twitter, facebook, etc… to share something your Thankful for.
