What am I thankful for? Everything! During this time of year people ponder on the things they are thankful for. They range from family, to health, to jobs. For me I am thankful for the hard and sometimes bad things that have happened in my life. Those dark days that looked like they would never end. As I look back now, I thank God for these times. I couldn't see anything positive coming out of them. But now I see so much that I learned along the way. It taught me to appreciate the good things in my life so much more. To get over myself. It gave me a taste of my own medicine that I so much needed. I learned to see people as they truly are. Not what I wanted them to be. To see not only the bad but also the good in myself. That I am a lot stronger than I ever thought I could be. I learned to value little moments in my life.
I learned what a true man is. It's not the one that values money over all or turns woman's heads. Or the bad boy we seem to think we can change when were young. But the one that sees the beauty in us, even when we are at our worse. The one that holds us when we feel our world is falling apart around us. Whispering everything will be fine in our ear. When they really have no idea whats going on.
I thank the Lord for those hard times that have blessed my life so much.
