GOOD MORNING READERS AND FELLOW BLOGGERS, MAY THIS BLOG FIND YOU IN GREAT SPIRITS!
Today I would like to dedicate my blog “THANKFUL THURSDAY”, to my FAMILY!
When it come to the things that I value and love, it would have to begin with my family. Many of us have loss dear loved ones and myself personally have lost my father as well as my husband. Therefore, I choose to cherish and be utterly “THANKFUL” for my family, because tomorrow is never promised to any of us!
With Mother’s Day just passing, many of us enjoyed fun times with our mothers, as well as I. In addition to this particular holiday that is recognized, my relationship with my mother is more daily and for that I am truly “THANKFUL”. More importantly that I would like to elaborate on, is why I am so appreciative to my mommy. Today I find myself experiencing my obstacles and tribulations, that my mother encountered on her journey. I recall witnessing my mom many days on her hands and knees in front of the bible, crying. Unsure of what could possibly be affecting this super woman that I had known, had me sad and puzzled. After many years, two more generations of entry to the family and a whole lot of hurt and pain, I finally got it and had an understanding of this woman’s strength. So today mother dear, I am so ‘THANKFUL” for your strength that I inherited and your will to keep moving forward. A mother’s job is not a job, but rather a lifelong blood connection that will always find the strength needed to be their for her own!
“MY CHILDREN & GRANDCHILDREN”
To be blessed with two handsome adult sons and to beautiful women as my daughters, why would I not be “THANKFUL”, because I am. To put more great blessing on top, my children have made me a grandmother to three handsome GMA baby boys and two GMA gorgeous girls. Trust and believe that I did not see myself with five GMA babies, but I wouldn’t give them up for the world. As I sit around and observe, listen, talk, hold, hug, kiss, say I love you, spend fun times, teach, play and protect them unconditionally, I SMILE AND SAY TO MYSELF, ” I AM SO “THANKFUL”, BECAUSE I DID THIS AND MY ROOTS WILL BE GROW LONG AFTER I’M GONE!
“MYSELF & MY LOVE”
As I write this blog today, I am celebrating 8 years in my current relationship and I love him unconditionally. This is another reason why I am so “THANKFUL”, for myself and my love, because I really didn’t believe I was capable of loving again. After burying my husband 10 years ago, my life was shattered and I didn’t see any clear skies. My mother, my children and family, were very concerned about me. With much support and plenty of counseling, my level of pulling myself up became recognizable. When I met this man, I wasn’t even trying to hear him, but with respectable persistence, we are here 8 years later. “He found me hurt, torn and full of baggage, he saw pain in my eyes and love in my heart, he touched me with his smile of gold, he showed me how to love again, no effort to fill someone’s shoes, built our love from bottom up, stood by me through thick and thin, standing strong to this day and for that I am utterly “THANKFUL”. My spirits are lifting and I am constantly growing, taking each day as the blessing it is and being grateful for it all!
HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY “THANKFUL THURSDAY” AND UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, BE SAFE AND HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!!
