This is a personal post~
Do you ever find yourself taking things for granted? The beauty around you, your amazing loved ones, God given gifts? I hate to admit it, but I do at times. I get so wrapped up in the busyness of life, wrapped up in what I need to do next, or what I want to buy next. I struggle with that one, a lot!!
I struggle daily with depression, it's true, and it eats up my life at times.
But I try so hard not to let it make me forget the gifts I have in my life. My husband, who is still here with his family after almost loosing his life to a ruptured brain aneurysm 3 years ago, my beautiful children, who were huge blessings that I never thought I could have, my mom who is in remission from cancer, my dear dad who suffered a major stroke in December but is still alive and whom I'm lucky enough to talk to every week or so, a place to call home, pretty good health, and beauty all around me everyday.
I am thankful!! Truly thankful, even on my bad days, I am thankful to God!!
Just like these flowers which are also a gift from God.
I think that's why when I have fresh flowers in my home, I am quick to snap photos of them so they can last forever in my memory.
Not looking for sympathy, just stating the fact that I am so thankful!!!~
I am also thankful to all of you for making my everyday a little brighter with your kindness!!
Have a lovely day!
