The older (and wiser) I get, the more my perspective changes. I get what really matters. It’s funny, when I was younger I was all about climbing that career ladder, getting my big break, being on my hustle and my grind, and making it happen – whatever it was. I still have goals and aspirations. Now, however, they take a back seat to things a thriving career, and a networking connection can’t get for you. In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday I was so blessed to celebrate with friends and family dear to me, here’s a look at some things I’m thankful for.
- A husband who cooks, cleans, is humble, and selfless. He’s an amazing daddy and an incredible marriage partner.
- Two beautiful boys who are my heartbeat. Their smiles, their unconditional love, and their innocent acceptance make me want to continue to do all that I can for them. My heart melts when they laugh.
- Parents who are living, love me and are an integral part of my life.
- Siblings who are now dear friends.
- Inlaws who I genuinely love and appreciate.
- The privilege to homeschool my boys. Yes, I am sacrificing much, but boy, is it worth the sacrifice.
- A place to lay my head, clothes to put on each day and food to eat. Truly things we usually take for granted. Truly things to be grateful for.
- My health. So very precious to be healthy.
- Joy! The joy of the Lord is truly my strength.
- Peace of mind. I could write for days on this one ……
- And last, but certainly not least, the love of Jesus that permeates my being and makes me who I am today.
I am grateful.
