I am thankful for the patience I have gained through my life’s trials and for the many friends that I have met along the way. Friends that love me no matter how long we go between talking and who accept me for just who I am, faults and all. There have been a number of people in my life that have come and gone but every one of them have left lasting impressions in my heart that bring a smile to my face when I think about them.
I am thankful for my family for standing by me through thick and thin. I am thankful for my sister’s brutal honesty as it always lets me know exactly where I stand and what I need to work on improving in my life. For my mother’s willingness to listen to my problems without judging me for making poor decisions that created the problem in the first place. For my father’s willingness to help me anytime that I need something fixed or when I need advice on a big purchase I am considering like my home or camp trailer. I am thankful for the fun times that I have been able to spend with my brother and his family camping and just hanging out together.
I would love to hear about the things you are thankful for. What is it that gets you out of bed each day and puts a spring in your step when you think about it?
