Lots of things have been swirling around in my head, and it kept me up last night but I knew that when I was letting myself go to places of feeling alone, or less than important, God was reeling me back in with truth.Holidays and special days in our lives are supposed to fun and full of joy, but often it brings painful reminders to me of what I wish was different. How sometimes I just want these people to...well... care.
But I recognize these feelings for what they are and I choose instead to focus on the close knit family I do have. It's small, but it's amazing.
Growing up my mom would always remind us to choose our family over our friends, because friends change, and now more than I ever I know she was right. It brought me to tears because I was caught up on who wasn't there for me and I completely ignored who was and who always has been.
They are the one constant in my life, even through ups and downs.
There are so many things I'm thankful for, our home our health and all our provisions but this year I am so incredibly thankful for my family.
