A Note Of Thanks

Today's challenge on the Inspiration Calendar was to write a Thank You Note.

Once I thought about this a bit longer, I realized there were so many different places this could go, so here goes mine!

First off...Thank you to the people who read this blog.  It's through that I am encouraged to keep writing and have a space just for me.

Thank you to my family.  My parents have shown me unconditional love and support throughout the years.  Despite how much I frustrated them, angered them and disappointed them, they have still been by my side.

Thank you to my husband.  You were able to see past this plush exterior and get to know the woman inside.  Through that, we fell in love and created a wonderful little family of our own.  No matter my size, he loves me and encourages me to do the best I can.

Thank you to my kids.  You have shown me what my parents have always known.  Your children are unconditional love.  You show me youth and love.  Through your eyes, I can see the pureness in the heart of others.

Thank you to my friends.  While my cup might not overflow in numbers, the ones I have are true.  I don't keep in touch with some of them like I should have or want to, but thy are in my thoughts every day.  These people are my family.  I would drop everything to help them out.  They each add something to my life and also love me unconditionally and support me through my ups and downs and are not afraid to tell me how it is.

Thank you to the bullies in school.  From the day I started, I was picked on.  It wasn't easy and I hated school, but I had those few close friends that made it bearable.  To the made me a better person, because it was through your uncaring and cruelty that made me love others and teach my children how to treat others.  Despite the fact that your actions and words are still as clear as day to me, I have matured and can now walk past you, smile and carry on a polite conversation....because that is the kind of person you turned me into.

As you can see, there is so much to be thankful for!  This path called my life was destined for me.  It's mine alone to travel and learn from.  I do my best to encourage others, love others and help others.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  I would love to read your "Thank You" note!
