Thanksgiving Blessings

Thursday, November 22, 2012

As I sit and reflect on my life and my Spark journey, I realize how very much I have to be thankful for. I am abundantly blessed for:

My husband: He is the love of my life, my best friend, a loving and wonderful husband, and a kind hearted Man of God. I know our union was divine intervention.

Friends/Sparkpeople: I'm very thankful for this entire site and all of the tools it has to offer, free of charge. I wouldn't be the success that I am today without it, and the love and support of my friendships I have maintained here. Each of my friends are an amazing blessing to me, all have impacted my life to make it even richer and more meaningful. I've had some friends disappear along the way, but I don't believe in coincidences, and know God brings the people we need into our lives, even if only for a season. Each of you are in my life for a reason, a purpose. You make a difference!

My family. We have good relationships, sometimes trying, but we all get along. I'm thankful for each one of them, and for their love and support. I'm also thankful for the means to be able to travel to see my family in MN.

My home. I am blessed to live in the woods, away from everything, in the peace and quiet, surrounded by the beauty of God's Creation. It is beautiful, spiritual, and amazing. Serene!

My Job: I'm very thankful for having a job, although it is highly stressful and I'm not fulfilled professionally. I pray for a job where I can make a difference somehow.

Me: I am thankful for all of my successes on this journey so far, which has changed me completely. I went into this weight loss journey with only the goal of losing weight, but so many changes have taken place in addition to weight loss. I am proud, strong, healthy and complete. I am balanced physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I am fulfilled, and at peace.

There is so much more to be thankful for.........

Thank you all for being part of my life, and for your support and friendship. All of you are an amazing gift, and I appreciate each one of you!

What are you thankful for?

    I'm just thankful you posted this. It reminds me to be thankful for everything God has given me (sometimes without even having to ask Him), He always knows our needs.
