I’m not going to lie…I’ve had a rough past two nights. I’ve cried and cried. Holidays are really hard for me now. 

Last night, after crying for a while and praying/telling God how I feel, I decided that today, Thanksgiving, I would look at the glass as half-full. Yes, it’s a holiday that hurts. All holidays do now. And there are many many memories from the past that are, and have been, coming back to “haunt me.” Holidays do that to me. But today is a glass half-full day. I will not cry today over what I’ve lost and what I miss. I will not wallow in loneliness or emptiness. I have many things to be thankful for. I’ve lost so much, lost what I held most dear; but I still have more than I deserve.


Join me, will you?

-Whether your marriage is falling apart

-Whether your best friend has left you for someone else

-Whether your children are disrespectful and don’t seem to love you

-Whether you’ve lost your job and don’t know how you’re going to make things work

-Whether you’re broken and empty, or desperately missing someone…

Let’s make this Thanksgiving a glass half-full day. We still have so much to be thankful for! If you can read this, you have much to be thankful for. Internet access, electricity, a roof over your head, money to have bought the computer, etc etc.

Today I will be thankful for what I still have. Today I will look at life with my glass half-full, and today I will, I will, make sure that I don’t take for granted what I have.

You never know what you have until it’s gone. Be thankful for what you have, and treasure the relationships around you.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
