This year has been a roller coaster of ups and downs – a wild ride to be sure. I have much to be thankful for and I wanted to take a moment to list some of those things.
1. I am thankful for the people in my life. My family, friends and co-workers who make my daily life better. The wonderful office staff here at Round Hill Meadows who don’t make me feel bad for the sheer number of times I have to go to the office to get a package from them. My new Sunday School class and the wonderful church people at CBC who have been so welcoming. And for J who, despite everything, has been a wonderful friend during a very difficult period in both of our lives.
2. I am thankful for my new apartment and the chance to strike out on my own and start over. I never knew how much I needed this to work. And I am happy to report that it does.
3. I am thankful for my job and the flexibility that working at home has given me. I am continuously amazed at the ease of which that happened and the stress relief it has provided – even while I still have stressors in my life.
4. And most importantly, I am thankful for a God who forgives me over and over again. I need more forgiveness than I think is possible sometimes and He always amazes me at his grace and mercy.
