I will never forget thanksgiving day 2011. It was the day my marriage, such as it had been, ceased to have any meaning. It was the day that the last nail went in the coffin.
And I am so thankful for that day – though I certainly wasn’t at the time.
I would not be thoroughly thankful for a couple of years. It took time to fully appreciate the blessings of that day.
But now, three years later, I’m incredibly aware and incredibly grateful that it happened.
Had it not been so, I would not be here today – in love with a man who respects me and loves all my “broken bits”, revamping this blog with my personal mission and long term vision firmly fixed, focused and free.
I have no worries now in this moment, just a pure and peaceful faith that it’s all going to work out in the end.
I move forward in the knowledge of the seven virtues, dedicated to applying them to my life, however imperfectly.
I cannot fail because I have no expectations beyond being in service and making a difference in the world.
I don’t fear making mistakes and seeming a fool, I will make mistakes and while I’m not truly a fool, I will be foolish and wrong-headed – and so what?
How else will I learn?
So many many more random thoughts of thankfulness are coming to me – today is a day of being thankful for our blessings and in have far too many to count.
What are you thankful for today?
