Being Thankful

Happy Sunday everyone. It’s been an interesting week and this Thursday is Thanksgiving. It’s got me thinking about all of the things that I have to be thankful for. I have had a rough year, but things have gotten better. So, I just wanted to take this time out to thank you for caring about what I have to say and to thank God for all of the many blessings he has bestowed on me. At the beginning of the year, I felt like I wasn’t going to make it, but God kept me strong and now I’m giving thanks.

I am thankful for the ability to have faith during the most difficult of times and even though it was tested repeatedly, I never gave up on what I wanted most in life which are to take good care of my family, have a wonderful man in my life, be a good Christian, and become a successful writer. I have the first three and still working on being a successful writer. Dreams can come true if you let it. You just have to work at it.

I’m thankful for my job and financial stability for however long it lasts. One of the hardest things about life is being able to take care of oneself. It sounds easy but unless you were lucky enough to be born into wealth or create your own, it really isn’t. I’ve never really cared about being rich or famous. I believe in working for what I get in this life. But even that can be impossible if you can’t find adequate employment.

I’m thankful for my health. I have never had a serious illness since I was a baby and I don’t get sick that often except for an occasional cold. Recently I had a very bad case of bronchitis which was a first -time thing for me. It lasted an entire month and got pretty nasty. But with the right medication, I am back to normal. Other than that, and a few extra pounds to lose I am good.  Staying healthy is important and although I hate exercise due to a lack of energy, I plan on doing better and exercising more often. Eating right is not a problem for me but getting enough sleep always has been. I just hate going to bed when there’s so much work to be done. But that will have to change too. I am always evolving.

And lastly, I am thankful for the ability to write. I know I am not the greatest writer in the world, but this is my calling and my purpose in life. It is the food I eat, the water I drink and the air I breathe. When I don’t write I feel as though I am only half alive and unable to be the real me. Even when I’m not writing, I’m thinking about it. I just can’t help myself. But you know what? I’d rather be addicted to being creative than drugs, sex, or alcohol. Because writing is one of the most positive and healthy ways to express oneself. It is my life.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday this week. Next Sunday there will be no new blog entry because I have to work. I know, that’s unusual for me. I never work on weekends, but I’m needed there.

Until next time.

See you in two weeks.
