Hey guys. To speed up the days and catch up, here are my thankful posts for November 2nd, November 3rd, and November 4th. Enjoy!
For November 2nd: I am thankful for my family. Rather, my husbands family who have added me as their own, whether they thought it was a good idea or not. It wouldn’t have happened if God didn’t let it, especially when my family and I are so badly estranged. Not that anybody wanted that, but it was pretty much like that before I even graduated from school. Sometimes that’s just what happens. Granted, my husbands family doesn’t like everything I do, but they will tell me rather than talking to everyone else about why they don’t like it. Even if they don’t, when they realize that there’s no talking me out of whatever I choose, then they decide they will be there for me, and that’s better than my birth family. It’s all about looking at the bright side of life. My husbands family is way better than my own, and I don’t think they know that.
November 3rd: I am thankful I have a home to go to every night. This is a big thing because my household has pretty much been homeless and it sucks. Not homeless to where we are sleeping on the street, though it almost came to that. The worst was living with two alcoholics who, one night, listerally got into such a bad fight I called my husbands aunt at 11pm or later to take Baby Chewy because I would rather him not with me than with me and possibly in danger. Since then, we have gotten on our feet and into our own apartment. Sure, it’s not a house, but it’s a roof over our heads until we can get a house.
November 4th: I am thankful for my husband. Everyone could sense this one too, probably. Quick background; my husband and I met online and by the grace of God, and help from others, I was able to move across the US and be with him and his family ((almost)) 3 years ago. To me that’s wild. I knew I loved him as a teenager and I still am in love with him, and love the fact he is not only emotionally supportive, but also he is supportive of my decisions, no matter what is it that I want to do. To find that kind of quality in a man is so amazing. For someone to go from a lazy divorcee to adopting a woman’s child, busting your butt to get a job to support your family and to be working on getting a raise…that’s kind of huge in my book. That’s why I am thankful for my husband.
