I wanted to share what I was thankful for. The last two years have been really hard for me and I have been through the ringer. I separated from my children's father of 8 years and became a single parent, left a job of 7 years and not by choice, lost my mom and my cat who I had for 14 years. I have been in therapy for a year and a half and I have learned so much about myself. I'm not perfect, I get mad a lot and I shut down when I feel I'm being attacked or hurt. I don't know how to communicate and instead of talking, I get quiet. I'm learning how to be the best single parent I can, and I'm learning how to be vulnerable and raw. Which is the hardest thing I have had to do, next to losing my mom.
Im thankful for my therapist because she not only listens but she has taught me how to work through my struggles and what they mean. She’s an angel in disguise. Im thankful for god giving me another day to live and spend with my children. Im thankful for being able to continue to work through my heartache of losing my mom. She was my everything, my support, my best friend, my nagging mother, and my cheerleader. Im thankful for being strong enough to not let all this spiral me into a deep depression. Im thankful for having work and doing what I love. Having a home, having family that loves me, kids that are active and healthy, having the kids father in their life, a car to get around in and awesome weather! We sometimes forget what we have while were whining about the things we WISH we had. Remember to be thankful for what is right in front of you because you can lose it all without warning.
