Counting Blessings: Reflecting on Thanksgiving 2021

Updated: Apr 5

Throughout this month, I've been striving to get this blog published online, but every time I sit down to write, distractions seem to find me. Whether it's the TV blaring or someone interrupting my train of thought mid-sentence, it's been a challenge to focus. Yet, amidst the chaos, I've been determined to share my gratitude with the world.

Despite the recent struggles, from missing Jimmy while he's away to not being able to spend Thanksgiving with my eldest son, I've come to realize the importance of acknowledging the blessings in my life. Even amid the depths of my depression, I find solace in the simple joys that surround me.

Take today, for example. After a string of restless nights, I finally managed to get a full eight hours of sleep. It was a rare treat, especially considering the hectic day ahead. Timing couldn't have been better as I prepped my Thanksgiving feast, with everything miraculously finishing around the same time. It's moments like these that remind me to cherish the little victories.

I'm deeply grateful for the unwavering support of my fans. Their encouragement fuels my passion for creating content and sharing my story. Knowing that my words have touched others' lives keeps me motivated to persevere, even when life feels overwhelming.

My best friend, Roller, deserves a special mention. He's always there when I need him, whether it's embarking on a cross-country journey or lending a helping hand with my beloved pups. Roller's selflessness and ingenuity have been a constant source of inspiration, shaping both my personal and professional endeavors.

And then there are my boys—my greatest blessings. Despite the odds, they've grown into remarkable young men, each with their own drive and determination. From defying medical expectations to carving their own paths in life, their resilience never ceases to amaze me.

Of course, my circle wouldn't be complete without Amanda, Sabra, and, of course, Jimmy. These incredible individuals have been my pillars of strength, offering unwavering support and laughter in times of need. Jimmy, in particular, has shown me the true meaning of love and companionship, proving that even the smallest gestures can make the biggest impact.

As I reflect on the blessings in my life, I'm reminded of the importance of gratitude. So, to all who've shared in my journey, I extend my heartfelt thanks. May we continue to find joy in the simple moments and cherish the love that surrounds us.

Until next time,

Blessed be!
