Thankful for Family – Personal
See that picture up there? Those two people (and the fella who helped me make them) are what I am most thankful for today. I am thankful for the beauty and joy they bring to my life. What was once a black and white world is now bursting with technicolor because of them. They are the reason I carry on; they are the reason I believe in love. They are everything.
This last week has been hard… like really, REALLY hard. I have had to face fears, stand up to situations that felt impossible and find solutions to problems that seemed beyond solving. It has also been one of the best weeks ever. It has been spent with friends we really, truly love more than we can say. They have made us laugh, made us feel incredible and reminded me that life is so very good. And we have also been so blessed to be surrounded by family. Today we sat down together in my brother’s living room at a long table and ate A LOT of delicious food together. Again with the laughing and the feeling warm and safe and home. No matter how impossible life seems sometimes (and it TOTALLY feels impossible sometimes) I am blessed beyond measure with friends I adore, family I would hand pick if it were up to me and the best husband and kids in the world. I am blessed to have a job I love doing something I am great at. I get to be a witness for people, and that means the whole world to me. I am thrilled to be surrounded by love in my work, and hope to surround others with that same feeling of joy. So Universe, THANK YOU! Thank you for this blessed life. I am so very happy to be living it.
