Thankful 30/Day 2

Today I am thankful for me !!!  I am grateful for all of life’s challenges that I have had.  Someone once said to me, “Why do these things always happen to you??”  At the time that hurt, but after some thought I figured it out.  God has blessed me with his grace and he knew whatever came my way, he would be right by my side helping me to get through it.  He didn’t do it, but he was going to see me through it.  He knew I was special and he wanted me to stay close to him.  I have always wondered why everyone blames God for the bad things that happen.  No one ever blames the devil and he really is at the root of all evil.  I remember thinking the devil must have invented smoking (not directing it at anyone who smokes).  I smoked for 25 years and I truly loved to smoke.  But when I started having breathing problems and my youngest was only in 2nd grade, I thought I better quit because he still needs his mom and his mom to be healthy.  The husband said, “I’m going to move out for a while while you quit (just kidding).”  So I woke up one Monday morning, set that day to quit, and I never smoked another cigarette again.  One and done !!!    Only the devil could create something that made you feel so good at the same time being so terrible for you.  

I have had many trial’s.  My teenage years were nonexistence and extremely traumatic.  That’s when I really started my pact with Jesus.  Then into my 20’s I suffered a major car accident and lost a son.  My 30’s & 40’s were probably the best time of my life, raising my family and being a homemaker but that time was also filled with some pretty trying times.   I have loved and lost but through it all I have kept my faith in God (albeit challenging at some times) and the other constant was that guy I told you about yesterday, the love of my life my husband ❤ …  

How lucky am I.  I know how important your health is.  I learned how to be grateful in every situation.  I know how important it is to love yourself no matter what the world throws at you and the most important thing I have learned is never, never quit.  So today I am grateful to God who has given me so much in my life.  To Him I say thank you for my life.  I wouldn’t change a thing.  I have gone through so much and I’m still standing healthy and happy.  Blessings, have a great day ❤  Oh and my Blackhawk’s are 6/3/1 !!!!  Very Cool 🙂 … 

I also just love, love, love this version of this song.  I put it at the end so if you don’t want to listen to it you can just by pass it.  But it’s like Dirty Dancing the movie, if it’s on, I just have to watch it ❤ …
