Today I got to thinking about how much things can change in a year. I always say that at New Year’s, by the way – that you never know where you’ll be a year from now. Love it or hate it, over the course of a short 365 day span things in your life can do a total 180. And in my life, they certainly did. Over the last year I married the love of my life. Had an amazing baby boy. Watched my little Lucy turn into a miniature moose. Quit my job. Got a new job. Started writing more. Started this blog. Spoke my mind. Fell more in love with my life than I can ever remember being before. The list goes on.
So then I got to thinking about how Thanksgiving is next week – and how thankful I am for my life. Specifically, I’m thankful for these things:
An amazing husband.
The gift of our baby.
A loving Lucy.
And family support.
Being able to write.
Being able to spend time with my little family unit.
My hubby’s work ethic.
Being strong enough to stick to our family values when it might not be the popular choice.
Our cozy home.
The ability to speak my mind, even if some people don’t like what I have to say.
This year I took a stand against negativity. I took a stand against immorality. Against doing the easy thing and instead did the right thing. It wasn’t easy, but I put my mind where my mouth is and took a stand for what I believe in. And I’m so THANKFUL that I did.
