On this Thanksgiving Day I wanted to take the time to really thank God for all He has given me. I attended mass this morning and yet I still feel like I haven’t truly thanked Him for all that He has blessed me with. My heart is full with love and thanksgiving today, so I hope you will allow me to share some of it with you.
I am thankful for a loving God who helps to fill my heart with happiness and helps me with some of life’s more difficult moments. I know that He will always be there for me, even when things feel hopeless.
I am thankful for living in a country where even on my worst day I know that I am far better off than most people on this earth. I don’t hunger, I have a roof over my head, I have heat in my house, and I don’t fall asleep wondering if my house will be bombed during the night.
I am thankful for my family. Despite the fact that I miss my older sister terribly, I know that she is still with us in spirit and I am thankful for every day that I had with her. I am thankful for two very understanding and supportive parents who love me no matter what, even when we irritate each other. And I am thankful for my younger sister who tends to have an attitude problem, but who I know will be there if I ever truly needed her.
I am thankful for my cats. They remind me that I don’t need to have the latest gadget or be a fashion maven for they love me anyway. After all, I am the lady with the can of food. 😉
I am thankful for my health. I have my bad days, and there are days when I get glutened, but I don’t have cancer and I can control my diet. I intend on living a very long life and keeping myself healthy.
Last, but never least, I am most thankful this Thanksgiving for the love of my life, Jay. There are times when I wish that we had met years ago because I want more time to spend with him. Forever is not nearly long enough. We are getting married on Saturday and I am so VERY happy. Despite what he thinks, he is perfect for me and I wouldn’t have him any other way. People have warned us that things will change after we’re married, but I’m hoping that they will change for the best. After all, how can it not? I know that we’ve only known each other for sixteen months, but sometimes I still get choked up because my heart overflows with my love for him. I spoil him because I want him to know that he’s loved and cared for. I might be trying to make up for all of the years we’ve had to spend apart, constantly searching for our other half, always being disappointed when yet another relationship fell through.
Jay is my love and my life. I don’t know what I would ever do without him. A few months ago at work things could have easily gone horribly wrong for him and he would have been taken from me. I would have gone on, but I would have been but an empty shell where once love lived. I know that God put Jay on this earth for me and I’m ever thankful that I found him. My goal is to always make him happy. I never want to change him and I never want to put down any of his dreams. If he wants something that might be unattainable I will do my best to find a way to obtain a similar thing for him. Even when I’m angry and upset with Jay I know that I will still love him with all of my heart. Life is so fragile and brief. Always live each day being true and honest with everybody. Let them know how you feel so that if something should happen to you they will never have to guess at your true feelings.
I am thankful for Saturday when I get to promise my heart to Jay for ever.
May you be lucky enough to find somebody who fills you with the kind of love that I have for Jay.
God bless you.
