Thankful.

I am going to be real honest up in here today.
When I first scrolled past Jenna's Thankful Thursday post in my feed today I didn't want to read it.
I didn't even want to look at the word Thankful.
NOT because I don't love me some Jenna...
I love her to pieces she really is one of the kindest ladies I know.
It's because if I am keeping things real this week has been far from wonderful.
It has basically sucked the biggest set of donkey balls this side of the Mississippi.
 
But...
As much as I am hurting I felt like it was important to choose five things I am thankful for today.
It is important to remind ourselves even during tough times that we really all have things in our everyday life to appreciate.
Nothing is too big or too small.
 
{one}  For my job.
I may bitch about it way more than I praise it but I realize I am lucky to have one.
I know plenty of people out of work that would kill to do what I do and make the money I do and they would be happy about it.
 
{two}  That I have two legs that allow me to walk, hell to run!
There are people that cannot do either.
I can.
 
{three}  This blog and the sweet people who read it.
The amount of comments, emails, texts, etc. over the past couple of days has blown me away.
There really are good people in this world.
 
{four}  My Husband.
He continues to be my rock and my punching bag at my toughest of times.
He loves me through it all and never complains.
 
{five}  To have been blessed with the most amazing Pawpaw.
A hard working man who has always remained my number one fan.
The one man in my life who has NEVER let me down.
Thankful for all the memories we have gotten to share over the past 28 years.
 
 
I am hurting.
Nobody wants to read the depressing posts so I will try my best to be back tomorrow with a smile on my face and some funnies.
I hope.

  2. ((((HUGS)))) You are an amazing person!! It's takes a strong person to find the good/positives things in life when you've gone through what you've gone through the past couple days/weeks/months!! Praying for you and your family to find the strength and courage to get through this.

  3. Chin up buttercup :) Thank you for linking up! See you have so much to be thankful for!! Did I ever tell you that 3 years ago before it was cool I got drunk off margaritas and got a tattoo of a mustache on my finger and told everyone it was my serious face when I held it up? Hahahahaha

  6. So sorry to read about your Pawpaw. The loss of any person is very hard, let alone someone you hold dearest to your heart. I'm praying for you girl, refuse to sink.
