Thankful

Linking up with MamaKat: 2.) We’re going around the table and it’s your turn to share what you are thankful for…go!

I have so much to be thankful for, it’s ridiculous. Ridiculous in a good way. Like I look around and I can’t believe this is my life, that I lucked out got everything I ever dreamed of.

You want to know the crazy part? I am actually starting to think I deserve it. That it’s ok that I have all of this goodness in my life. It’s scary allowing yourself to feel like it’s ok to have this life because at the same time you’re afraid that, if you do admit it, soon it will all be taken away from you. But I’m not doing that anymore. I’m just going to look around and be happy that this is my life.

I am surrounded by these people that I love so deeply it hurts…and they love me right back. There’s this invisible strand of connectedness between us all that you can feel. I am loved every day. Every day.

So today I am just going to sit here and revel in all that I’ve been blessed with. I am so very thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving.
