(I wrote this post months ago, found it today, and thought, “Wow”! Life is good. We have our health, our home, our sanity? Well, maybe.. and gosh darn I’m still feeling grateful lol)
Jesus. I know I talk to you often. But today, I wanted to Thank you for my beautiful blended family. There was a time in my life that I thought I didn’t have a family, then other times where I felt like every family I had fell apart.
Today, I have a family that will last forever, and I want to Thank You. Every time I looked around, times seemed to be a struggle. The struggle was so often it felt comfortable. Today I don’t feel the struggle. I feel your love and your joy and your gifts around me. Those gifts may come in different ways, but I’m so grateful for them.
I know most of the time I am crying to you with questions and demanding answers, but this time I can see you everywhere. I don’t need answers and rationalization. Just your joy filling the air. Truly, the best feeling in the world. Today, I know we are ok.
Now, we laugh, we cry, we pray, and sometimes yell pray- I’m sorry. But even when we don’t know what to do, we have come to a time that we just say, “I don’t know” and are comfortable with that. We don’t have the answers to everything, but we know that this is your world and it is in your hands, and I’m so grateful for that.
Thank you Lord for always watching over us and seeing us through. Thank you for an amazing Christmas…the whole family was there Christmas morning. What a dream!
OH, and Happy New Year,
Sometimes a little cookie, but always just being ourselves.
This one was last year in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Great memories and just-so-happened-to-be, great pictures from strangers.
I love all these humans.
