Just Happy To Be Here This Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday ButtonI’m thankful I started doing these Thankful Thursday posts. They give me a reason to stop and look at my life,  at where I am in the world, and what’s going on around me. I try to look at the small things as well as the large and try to find the silver lining in the dark things as well as looking at the shining stars.


johnny_automatic_Praying_handsThis week, I’m just happy to be here. The Fat Chick is sick as I wrote in another blog post. I could be mad at being sick, but instead, I feel thankful that the problems have been found and further tests are being run to get to the bottom of things. I know I’m going to be okay because I’m a firm believer in the saying, If God brings you to it He’ll see you through it. Faith is free, so I can afford to have a lot of it, LOL!



I’m thankful that the common cold only lasts so long. My granddaughter Shelby caught a cold and was so pitiful. She tried to be her usual happy self, but she just didn’t understand why she didn’t feel good. I hate that as she gets older she’ll get used to being sick and getting over it, but that’s how life is. For now, I’m just thankful she feels better and is back to her old self again.

womanI have found out there really are decent people out there in this word, even when it comes to doing business. I’ve been exceptionally blessed in my business with clients that have been very understanding when something has happened and my work has been interrupted for whatever reason. I’m so thankful for clients who understand that I work my hardest for them, but sometimes things happen that are beyond my control like a house fire, a spouse’s multiple heart attacks and medical procedures, getting new diagnoses that take more tests for myself, sick kids… you get the idea. While I am a very dedicated editor and proofreader, my family comes first. I don’t know how else to be, and I don’t think I’d want to be any other way if I did. It’s a large part of the reason I’m a freelancer. So even though you may never see this, thank you to each and every one of you.

kattekrab-Hand-printsFamily is where it’s at. My family is everything to me. They are my safety net, the ones I know when the chips are down always have my back. My family is my heart and soul, and home is where they have to take you back. Knowing my family has always been behind me has made it possible for me to accomplish everything I have in my life. Without my family I would be lost, so I always have been and will always be very thankful for them.

Take a minute to look around you. What are you thankful for? Leave a comment and share with me.
