I try my best to be thankful every day, but today will be my first Thankful Thursday post. I want to shine a light on five things in my life that I’m thankful for this week. It may be the same five things as last week. It may be the same five things next week. But for right now, this is what I’m thankful for this week.
I am thankful for that God has brought our family through another week together, that He has kept us safe, that He makes sure we have a roof over our heads and food in our bellies, and that He blesses us and watches over us in too many ways to mention. The best thing I ever did was to ask God to take charge of my life and open my heart and invite Jesus in. The world has been a whole new place, my family life has improved by leaps and bounds, my life in general has gotten nothing but better. The best part is knowing He’s got this no matter what this happens to be, that He can handle all things and does on my behalf every day. Oh yes, my God is mighty and He is good!
I’m thankful for a son who is willing to let us borrow his vehicle when we need it. Our car has been down and out in Fatopia for months and months. Any time we need anything from the store, need to go to town, or have to go to the doctor it’s either bum a ride or beg a vehicle. We are blessed that our oldest son will let us borrow his vehicle to go to and from the doctor when we need to. If it wasn’t for that, I’m not sure Mr. FatChick and I would be able to make the trips we do to and from all the doctors we have to see.
I am thankful for the ability to witness the circle of life happening around me. In the last year our family has been bless with our first granddaughter and grandson, a new calf, and seven puppies. We’ve had our share of loss along the way, which I’d prefer not to remember right now for personal reasons, but who doesn’t suffer losses in this life? But I see every birth as a miracle and I’m thankful for every one that we have and that I hear about others having as well.
I’m thankful for credit, for without it no one on my Christmas list would be getting a present this year. Yes, money’s tight and times are hard for everyone, especially us since Mr. FatChick had to come off work with a bad thumping gizzard a few years ago. Fortunately, there’s this amazing thing called credit that allows you to make purchases, get your stuff, and stretch the payments out over time. Yes, I’m thankful for credit right now, but let’s wait till after the first bills get there next year and see what I have to say then, lol. Oh yeah, and I’m also thankful for deferred billing 🙂
And last but certainly not least, I’m thankful for family and friends (and hopefully readers) that understand what life can be like with narcolepsy. A prime example of what my life is like dealing with it is this post. I started working on it well over twelve hours ago and have been on it looking for graphics or writing or whatever since I started, and sleeping. Oh yes, we can’t forget the sleeping. I do a lot of that at times, and today has been one of those time. On the flip side, there are times I don’t sleep at all for long periods of time. Not sure if that’s the bipolar disorder beating out the narcolepsy or if it’s how narcolepsy works (I’m a whole bag of tricks.), but it’s how I live. So I ask for you to be as understanding as my family is as they watch me drooling into my own lap on the chaise lounge in the den on any given afternoon.
What are you thankful for in your life? Use the comments and tell me. I’d really like to hear about it
