Thankful Thursday

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."  ~ Thornton Wilder

 I have been going through a lot these past few days and although things can seem a bit overwhelming, it doesn't make me stop thinking about all the things I am thankful for. 

This week I am thankful for:

Strength ~ Without strength, I would not have been willing to come to the decisions that I have this week to start fresh with a positive outlook.

Acceptance ~ Sometimes, the hardest person you have to be honest with is yourself and this honesty can be hard to accept.  But, when we find that strength to accept this burning honesty, better things come along.

Understanding ~ I had to back out of a major event for this upcoming weekend and I was really worried about disappointing two people that I care deeply about.  I never imagined that they would be understanding to my situation without a bit of resentment, but not only were they beyond understanding they took a moment out of their hectic deadline to sit and listen.  These are the types of people that true friends are made of.

Friendship ~ I have found that I have a larger support group than I ever would have imagined in the past 7 years.  It's amazing to me in so many ways.  I am blessed that I know so many beautiful souls.

Family ~ As we all know, family is a bond like no other.  I am so blessed to have such a close family that is filled with love. 

Phone Calls ~ It seems so silly, but phone calls I share with those I adore make me feel that much more blessed.

Beautiful Weather ~ The weather here has been beautiful this week.  It has raised my spirits in so many ways.  It was nice to be able to open the windows again this far into October.

What are you thankful for this week? What made you smile when you least expected it?
