Family Matters: Thankful

FamilyI didn’t think this would be so difficult to write, but I think writing a blog about being thankful has given me pause to think about the myriad of blessings in my life this year.

First of all, I’m thankful for my health and for the medical community. I’ve suffered debilitating migraines, about once every 10 years, for the past four years. Recently, I think my doctor figured out the cause and has it under control. I haven’t had a migraine in six weeks (knocks on wood).

Secondly, I’m thankful for restored relationships. I had fallings-out with two people I love very much this year. It’s not like me to have a falling-out that goes unresolved, so the months it took to restore the faith, trust and love in those relationships felt like an eternity.

I’m thankful for our new dog. I knew that we’d know when the time was right to replace the pups we lost, and sure enough, we ended up with the best pet ever, the hound who loves eggplant.

I’m mostly thankful for my family and friends. Although my immediate family lives too far away to celebrate with today, I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that our connection is strong, and the ties that bind will remain unbroken. I’m thankful for my friends in the area who are like family and would do anything for me at any time. I’m thankful for my two boys, and words truly cannot express the depth of my love for them.

Finally, I’m thankful for my relationship with God: for with Him, all things are possible.
