This Thanksgiving, there is just so much to be thankful for in my life that I don't even know where to begin. I took the opportunity today to thank some people on Facebook, by posting a "thankful post" on each person's wall. I told them the exact reason I was thankful for them in my comment. I am a firm believer of telling people how you feel now cuz when you're gone, you can't. Simple fact.

So as I write today about thankfulness, I can't help but feel grateful for all the people in my life that have helped me out this past year. I read through some old posts last night and reading a few of them was downright painful. I remember clearly being in the WalMart parking lot wishing my life was over. I remember clearly calling out to God that night for help. I remember promising to have the courage to change the things I could in order for things to improve in my life. That was scary, but a necessary change.

So many people both near to me and far away from me began praying for me. SO many people reached out to me to lend me a hand, their shoulders, time or money when I needed it most. It's been an incredibly rough 9 mths, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel now and it's an exhilarating feeling knowing I did this and I survived. :) So today as I reflect on what I am truly thankful for, I want to remember all those friends and family members who held me up when I couldn't walk on my own. I am so thankful for your presence in my life, soooo thankful for your love that I feel like I could burst wide open with thankfulness!

Here's hoping you have lots to be thankful for this Thanksgiving too. Much love <3

Yes it's true, I admit it. I am IN LOVE! I have been keeping this little secret all to myself until the time was right to share it. But I could yell it from the rooftops now and not care who knows! I am in love and not ashamed to say it. It's really amazing how things work out when we let God do the navigating. Waaay back in February of this year I had a nice long sit down with God and told him of my troubles and my unhappiness. I made a promise right then that I would do my part down here on Earth if he would help me out of the situation I was currently in. And then I waited....I waited patiently. I cried a lot, I prayed a lot, I talked to my loved ones gone before me asking for guidance (thank you Grandma!!), I doubted myself, I had LOADS of self pity, but I persevered and I waited some more asking for nothing other than God's will in my life.

Then one day when I very least expected it, our paths crossed. And suddenly, it felt like things just clicked into place. I pretty much knew after the first time we spent some time together, that this was the man I had been waiting for. I feel like I waited my whole life to meet him. Whenever we are together, it just feels completely right. I know for sure that he is Heaven sent to me. He is the most amazing addition to my life. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me. I just know that my life seems so much fuller with him beside me. <3
