Giving Thanks

Start believing that just having a dream begins the process of fulfilling a dream

Today I really wanted to take the time and write down everything that I am thankful for.  There are many blessing in my life that I need to to acknowledge or I would be very ungrateful.  The first thing that I am truly thankful for is my two daughters who I feel are the biggest blessings in my life.  I don't want to think where I would be without them in my life, they both make me smile and make me a better person. 

I am grateful for my career, it is challenging and always makes me think and learn.  It's not easy, I have to work to learn all that I need to be really good at my job.  Sometimes I feel like I am in over my head where work is concerned but there is always someone there who shows me I can do this, I am never too old to learn.

I am thankful for my sisters, all of them are incredible blessings in my life.  We all have been through difficult times, yet we all have become more than what we were led to believe that we could.  We are survivors who always try to see the best in life, it has not been easy for any of us.  Each of us has raised kind, loving and caring children who have done better than we did.  Isn't that what we want as parents, we want our children to succeed and become who they were meant to be.

I am grateful for my friends, I have some really amazing people who have come in and out of my life.  What I have really learned over the years is that each one of us has challenges that could break us but we all keep trying to be better, keep giving of ourselves to make life easier for each other.  I continually pray for each of my friends to be able to overcome the trials that they have been given in this life.

I am thankful for my tenacity, without it... I don't want to know where I would be right now.  There is something inside me that refuses to give up, even when I sometimes feel there is no hope.  I find that sliver of hope and hold on to it until I get through another trial.  I often wish life was easier, that the dreams I hold for myself would just come to pass.   There is what is different about me, I never give up, I hold on when other people tell me to give up, I believe there is hope (no matter how small) and that my dreams will come true.

Feel for what your soul believes. If you believe it, you can achieve it. Anything is possible.
