As Thanksgiving arrives I am thankful for this little space to write about my thoughts and feelings through this journey of ups and downs. Although it has been rough for several months it is good to look around and remind myself of the good things I am thankful for.
First and foremost I am thankful for my family. My husband is fiercely supportive of me and whatever I need to get better. He is a great listener and gives me helpful suggestions and asks me questions to help me sort through all the mess in my head.
I have the best kids. My stepsons are there for me when I need their support. My son and daughter have been awesome when I am broken in front of them and we talk a lot about our feelings and how to be supportive of someone who needs it.
My parents have been so very supportive, checking on me and listening to me. My in laws are always there to help, whatever I need. I get sweet words from my brother and sister in law and so many extended family members. I am looking forward to seeing many of them during the holidays.
My friends have been reaching out to check on me and offer support. They tell me I matter and they love me. I have such a fabulous support system, so many caring people to reach out to whenever I need.
I’m so very thankful for all of the people in my life.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
