Thankfulness, overwhelming

While appreciation and thankfulness should be practiced everyday, the month of November celebrates gratefulness.  I would be remiss if I did not take this week, the week of Thanksgiving, to express the overwhelming and blessed thankfulness to the family and friends who undoubtedly carried me through in trying times.

The outpouring of support and prayers I received after the passing of my husband brought rejuvenation to my spirit.  At a time when it could be so easy to turn my back on or get angry with God, instead I felt uplifted by those in my life.  It is hard to describe, but I could actually feel the support.  Instead of crying tears of pain, there were many times I cried tears of appreciation and love.  I felt supported by those who were close to me, those I hadn’t seen in many years, and even those whom I had never even met in person.

I have been overcome with the gentle and positive nature that can be shared by humankind.  I wish it didn’t take a designated day, week, or month to be reminded of the kindness and compassion we are capable of.

I am a mother of a teenager. I am a career woman. I am a remarried widow. I am struggling everyday to hold it all together, raise talented and gifted child, and come out a better person in the long run. This is a chronicle or rant of my journey. Many will judge, many will criticize, but not many can say they walked in my shoes.
