Being Thankful During Difficult Times
Our journey with this blog began over Thanksgiving 4 years ago, so I thought this week would be a great time to try again.
Every November people begin making lists of everything they are thankful for. It occupies your Facebook newsfeed, it inspires self-awareness and discovery.
I have had some many great, life-changing events happen in the month of November.
November 13, 2004- Met Brian
November 26, 2004- First Date with Brian
November 24, 2005- Met Brian's family during Thanksgiving dinner
November 20, 2007- Closed on our first house
November 22, 2012- Found out we were being blessed with an Aubrey (Thanksgiving Day)
Even with all the great things that have happened to us in November, it is still a month I struggle through. The one date that takes the most significance in my life is November 19, 2010; the day we heard "your child has cancer". The year Liam spent his first Thanksgiving in the hospital.
So through all this I work to tell myself- I am thankful for my home. I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for all the experiences this life has offered me.
