You know how in my last post I said something about how I felt like I should be writing some preachy post about thanksgiving? Wellllllll... Here it is. Kind of. Hopefully not too preachy, just want to express how grateful I am about absolutely everything.
You see, I just see some people who don't necessarily complain (and if they were to complain, they would have a right to) but don't realize the beauty of the bad things in their life. Now, I think we could all go on and on about the wonderful things in our lives that we're grateful for, and I mean for hours, but I think that would be a little too simple. How about thinking about the not-so-great things that we're grateful for? I know it might sound silly to be grateful for family issues, sicknesses, deaths, and other personal problems, but personally those things are what I am most grateful for. Who would I be today without those trials? I would be nothing. Really though, nothing. When you think about it that way, I promise you life will be so much happier.
I know it's past Thanksgiving already, but really, think about these things! I'm grateful for divorced parents because I've learned how important family and love is to me. I know that I won't marry someone until I know them inside and out. It's hard, but in the end, worth it.
I could go on and on about this but for once I don't think I will. Thank you all who are reading this for being in my life! Even if I don't know you well, you are important to me somehow. Thank you.
Happy holidays, everyone!
