It’s Thanksgiving this week and I want to share what I am most thankful for in my life. Most of you who know me know my current situation and this past year has not been an easy one for me. It was probably the most difficult year of my life. But even though there were struggles, heartbreak, and many tears, I have come out on the other side. I am so grateful to everyone who has been there for me during that time.
To my boys, thank you for being my rock. Thank you for giving hugs whenever they were needed and making me smile and keeping me so busy that I wasn’t solely focused on myself.
To my friends and family, you have been amazing. I’m so thankful for you all. I won’t name names but you know exactly who you are. I love you tons. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You listened to me, hugged me, you were there when I needed you most. I will forever be grateful to you all.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me with my little guy. Being able to work during the week and focus on schoolwork and my writing is so important to me. I am thankful to all who have helped care for my precious boy.
This year I have learned to let go of things not meant for me. I am thankful for those experiences even though they hurt. I do feel they have made me stronger. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Letting go of what’s not meant to be and being so appreciative and thankful for everyone who is still here. I’ve made some new friends along the way and some old friends came back into my life. I love you guys and because of all of you I can look forward to what’s next for me and my boys. I feel lucky that I have so many amazing people around us.
Lastly, I am so thankful for my book and this new path I am on. My book has been such a wonderful experience. Writing it as well as publishing it and now having it out in the world. I’m grateful to my publishing company and the support from family and friends. The positive feedback and the push to go forward with it. This year I finally figured out what I am most passionate about. It took me 38 years to figure it out, but I finally figured it out, so YAY to that. Writing is my passion and being a Children’s Book Author is now something I call myself. I am thankful to finally have found my niche. There is more to come and I can’t wait to share it with you guys.
