Top 2... Things You're Thankful For

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

In the essence of all things Thanksgiving, Taylor over at The Undomestic Momma blogged a thought-provoking weekly post for her "Top 2" series...

Top 2--Things You're Thankful For
1. A Once in a Lifetime Love
Though my relationship with Mr. Fabulous hasn't been the easiest road to travel, I wouldn't change it for anything in the entire world. Jeff is the most incredible thing to happen to me... with him, I was able to discover the true meaning of God, found out what a woman should expect to give and receive in a committed relationship, saw just how much someone can fall in love with not only me but with my family, and truly found my counterpart and soulmate. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't remind him just how much I love him and tell him what a blessing he has been for me. I was able to turn my life around and find out who and what really matters and having someone to share a life with fulfills all I could ever need. I'm thankful for his understanding, his love, his ability to forgive me when I get a tad bit selfish, and for lessons we're slowly learning together. 

2. Optimism
We are all bound to face setbacks throughout our lives, and I have most definitely had my fair share let me tell you, but being able to walk away at the end of the day and say "tomorrow is another day" or "I'll get them next time" has helped me overcome some of these obstacles. Sure, we all have debbie downer days at one point or another, but I think my optimism has gotten me through some difficult times and has helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. Glass half full, hopeful, call it what you will--but I refuse to let in to life's ups and downs and I am all about keeping it positive no matter what... and hopefully, that can rub off and inspire someone else someday, too!
So, what are you most thankful for?? Head over to Taylor's blog and let her know!
