Why I’m Thankful

This week I’m taking a break from the interviews and focusing on all things Thanksgiving this week, since Thanksgiving is this Thursday. I can’t believe that this year has gone by too quick. I’ve been married for 3 months now and I still feel like I’m getting used to it. But I couldn’t be more happier and thankful. Which is what today’s post is about, Why I’m thankful for everything I have. We should be thankful for everything that we have in our lives. From food to clothes to family, because there are people out there that are homeless and have no families to spend time with. I’m very grateful for my family and the family I’ve created myself. It was definitely quite the change going from a single mom to becoming a mom of 3, but I’ve learned to adjust and I love all 3 kids just the same. When I was pregnant with Donovan, my mother told me that no one would want to be with me, being a single mom, because she was one herself, and she thinks no one ever wants to be with her. I ended up proving her wrong, finding the most amazing man that loves Donovan as much as he loves me and although she may never admit it, I know she’s jealous. Anyway, there are many other things to be thankful for. Some people say they’re thankful for their phones and any other piece of technology. Yes, nowadays we need it to keep up with family and friends, post photos for other people to see, post updates, but I’m rambling, so that’s a story for another time. This post is not just about what I’m thankful for, it’s about why. Why I’m thankful for the things I have. If you just look around, look outside, you should just know who created it all. The main things you should be thankful for; the sky we see every day, day and night, being able to breath and talk, God created those for us. Whether you’re a firm believer or not, you should at least believe that God created this world for us. He created each and every one of us, it’s how we choose to act as people, and to truly realize our purpose for this world. So I challenge those who read this post, challenge yourself, not only think about what you’re thankful for, but think about why.
