For those of you who don’t live in Canada this weekend is our Thanksgiving holiday. I have so much gratitude in my heart. So many blessings I have in my life. When things are rough or I’m feeling sad the best way to move forward from that for me is to count my blessings. I’ve come through a year of being on my own and even though it was hard at times I wouldn’t change what God had shown me through my grief and pain. I’ve become a much Stronger woman and I finally am able to look in the mirror and not grimise at what I see. I’m learning to love myself and I’m so thankful for that. My self esteem is the best it has even been. That’s huge for me. I’m thankful for who God has made me to be.

I’m so thankful for my family it’s been a tough year for my mom as my step dad has dementia. Our family has grown closer because of it. It’s so hard on my mom to watch her husband decline. I’m thankful that I get to hang out with him while my mom has a much needed break. I just make our time we have together the best I can.

I’m so thankful for all my friends. I have the best ones. I love being able to have coffee and hang out and laugh and have fun. One of my core friends has breast cancer and I’m thankful to be able to help her and encourage her through her journey. Our prayers are working for her. I’m so thankful for new friends I’ve found and who God puts in my life for a time. Friendship is the best.

I’m so Thankful for me new job. So thankful for all the kindergarten children I get to be with each day. To laugh with them, to comfort them when they fall or are frustrated or sad. I get to sit with them on a bench and help them feel safe. My new job is so much better than being an Educational Assistant. My role in the children’s life is a nurturing role and I’m able to do early intervention. I get to work with an amazing teacher who has taught me a lot of things already. I love my role at the school I can use all my skills and experience. Children are such a precious gift. I’m thankful to be part of it. ❤️

I have so many blessings in my life I’m thankful for them all even the ones that are ending. Through out all my experiences God is always there and for that I’m eternally grateful. You should try it if your feeling down or sad make a short list of all the things your grateful for.
