Thankful Thursday, We can do this
Hello everyone and welcome to Thankful Thursday. To tell the truth I woke up this morning, unprepared, thinking that I would only write a goodbye post and graciously bow out of blogging forever. Life isn't easy for me these days. I have more problems than most people would be able to deal with. Between family, work and financial commitments I am just about broke. My mental and physical bank account is drained and there is no relief in site. However through it all, I keep getting little glimpses of hope and that keeps me going. When I logged on this morning to make that goodbye post, I had some great comments on my last post. Those little comments (along with some really strong coffee) gave me the strength to keep moving and not give up. So here are the little things I am thankful for this morning;
I am thankful for the person at work who told me this week that they didn't mind helping me because I am a nice person.
I am thankful for the two 100's that my youngest son brought home from school yesterday. I knew he could do it.
I am thankful for my oldest son who is picking up the slack while I work these 10 hour days. Living out in the country like we do makes it hard to do all those errands when I have to work late.
I am thankful for my wife who is out there every day watering the garden for us with a brace on her foot. She is hurting but she keeps doing what she can.
And finally I am thankful for all the great comments that I get on my blog. You never know the difference one little comment can make in someone's life. When life gets us down, it's nice to know we are not alone. And I would like to apologize for not visiting your blogs like I used to. As soon as this life slows down I will get back to it.
Have a great day,
