Gratitude

 

  This is part of Free Write Friday Prompt

Gratitude: The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

Gratitude should be something we all take to heart.
Gratitude should be in your heart, mind, and soul.
Gratitude = Grateful/Thankful
Here is a list of my Thankfuls

Friends and family I will see Thanksgiving. The memories we will be making, and the time spent with love ones. Everyday I am thankful for the ability to get together with people I love, hear laughter, and share that contagious smile everyone always talks about.

Zumba, and all the girls that go. They can boost my motivation and I love it.

Everything I had to endure to get to the place I am today. If it wasn’t for the lows, I wouldn’t be the strong person I am today. Just always remember “This Too Shall Pass” and push forward, because there is always happiness somewhere, just open your eyes and look for it.

Thanksgiving Break! I get to spend all week with Jade and get to spend every evening with both of my loves.

All the “Moms” who helped me grow into the person I am today 🙂

Knowing what Love is

Everlasting love, and Jade saying, “You get the baby out now!?”

Modern day technology. I get to see our baby! ♥

My Hubby teaches our daughter about giving. She had about $50 in her piggy bank. she bought herself a toy and then got one for the Toys For Tots, and even put it in the box by herself.

Friends who will let you crash at their place

A car; a car that gets warm, protects me from storms, and gets me from Point A to Point B.

The military fighting for our freedom, and putting their lives in front of danger, just for me and you. Thank you Military, old and new. I am also thankful for being able to feel my lil bug move this morning.

All my family ♡

I can always count my blessings

Today, well not just today, but I am thankful for my friends. A lot of them have stuck by me through the years, even through hard times, and I still think they are just as dear to me. I am very thankful that I can call them my best friends and would even consider some of them as my family.

People understand the severity of Jade’s food allergies. I am also thankful that her Allergist wants to get more “detailed” information regarding her allergy, that way we will know fully, instead of taking precautions of something we have no clue about.

Walking by faith, not by sight.

Jade cares and helps take care of me when I don’t feel well.

Spend the evenings with my Pawpaw. I am so blessed that he is still here for us to enjoy, talk and share memories.

The friends, and family who has helped support us through this change of Lifestyle we had to overcome. If it wasn’t for yalls love, and understanding, I think I would be totally (not completely) lost in this journey with food allergies. I also know God can see us through and he has already.

My Husband, he is my rock, and he supports whatever decisions I make. He is my love, and he provides for us and I will always be truly thankful for him.

 

Do you have Gratitude!?

Thankful in November

I know I haven’t been writing a lot, but don’t worry I am still around. I am getting my life adjusted because a lot of things are going to be changing in the coming year. I will tell you that I am taking a break from my weight loss journey for right now, due to things going on in my life at the moment. Also, my neck has healed! I am glad for that but it does catch every once in awhile.

During this month, and the next month I am spending every moment I can with my husband before he starts another shift. We are praying that he can stick to the Monday – Friday shift, but you never know what will happen. We are praying for the great news and continue to be looking forward to more awards in our path.

Another thing is we are thinking/talking about another baby, and I am excited but then again I don’t want to get anybodies hopes up rather we are or we’re not, so I am just going to keep it simple till we figure something out on our own.

I haven’t been going to church either, and not because I don’t like it, but because I want to suck up all the time with my husband. In the past 6 years he has worked weekends and now since he is off on the weekends I wanna spend those times with him. He just started being off on the weekends (not just every other weekend) this past October (so, not even a month) and they are already talking about sending him back to swing shift this January. I love sleeping in and waking up with him still there, and I am sure if you was in my shoes you would want the same.

We have been going places on the weekends too since he has been off. It is like mini vacations or just spending time together. This weekend I went to see Breaking Dawn with Lisa. We also go eat chips and dip at the local Mexican restaurant with a order of cheese dip of course and a margarita! YUM! We can always use a girls night and I simply love it. Saturday, I woke up 6 hours later to go with my husband to a reptile expo or show, which ever they call it. It was different, but it was spending time with him and if he wants to go look at snakes, lizards, turtles, and other things then I will be right beside him. On the way home we got confused in road construction and ended up 160 miles out of the way from where we was. I had to call my mom, who was babysitting Jade, that we would be about 2 hours later from the pickup time. lol. I am glad she understood! The hamburger 2 hours away from home, taste the same by the way! lool. Today, we got up, cleaned the house some and went to do a little bit of Christmas shopping! I am tired! Monday, I can see a nap or 2 sneaking into my schedule.

However, in this post I will tell you I am thankful for…

— Gosh, There is so much I am thankful for I could go on and on. Just know I am thankful for everything I touch, see, feel and see (well the positive things at least).

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, then I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I hope your days are filled with laughs, joy and happiness, because without that life would be pretty boring. I miss all of you and I hope to be able to write more in later days. Personally I haven’t been writing because a lot of things haven’t been going on. Just the same ole stuff just different day kinda thing lol I guess though as you can see a lot of things have been going on I just haven’t been venting LOL!

Later my readers, I will be back
((Hugs Virtually with much Love))
