A guest blogger, that is! Wow, can you believe it? Yeah, me neither… But, ’tis true.
When Deb from The Monster In Your Closet asked if I would do a guest post for her FTIAT (For This I Am Thankful) series, I was thrilled! I was also shocked, scared, overwhelmed and feeling unworthy. So, I put it off. Then decided I shouldn’t do it at all. Until an encouraging comment from Deb on Facebook made me realize I was letting my self-doubt keep me from this new and challenging experience.
Reflecting on what I was thankful for was a wonderful exercise in appreciating things in life. In appreciating MY life. There are so many things I have been blessed with, it’s difficult to name them all. A wonderful, loving, supportive husband. Great kids who are bright, loving, and kind (mostly… they ARE kids after all). A kind and supportive church where we can worship as a family. A beautiful home, and reliable cars (a very important thing for me, based on past experiences). Living in a lake-side town where people come to get away from the cold during the winter, and spend summers vacationing. Yet, to truly appreciate these blessings, I had to delve deeper. Head over here with me to Deb’s, and let me share with you what I am thankful for.
Deb is such an amazing woman, who inspires me with her courage, frankness, and beautiful expressions of kindness, compassion and love. I thank you, Deb, for offering this amazing opportunity!
