On to the next few days and I promise we are caught up. Thank you for being patient.
November 5th: I am thankful for God. Though I have a recent relationship with God, and still trying to figure all of that out, I am thankful that I have been shown mercy. The mercy I am talking about is, even though I am still struggling in a lot of ways, I am struggling a lot less, sad a lot less, and quite frankly, I have put the cat claws away and stopped being irrational and backstabby. This is huge for me since I am known to be that way as a defense mechanism with having a child young-ish and moving and being homeless and all that other stuff. It’s nice to see that I have been able to cope differently and pray when I need it. God has given me all this grace and mercy to be able to grow, and that’s a huge thing.
November 6th: I am thankful for my mother in law. Yup, this may be the only time you ever hear this, but I love my mother-in-law. She has helped me when it comes to growing, and how I react to certain things. Not a lot of people can sit there and talk highly of their mother-in-law, or how amazingly they raised their son, but I think mine did awesome. There’s also that I live with her, and when you live with someone, you become used to who they are and what they stand for.
November 7th: Woohoo, finally on the right day. I am thankful for the ability to go to school. Not a whole lot of mothers have this opportunity, and not a lot of people in general do, so the fact I am raising a child and have the ability to attend school with him going to school, and my lowest grade is only an 80, with things not totally being put in, this shows that this is a good thing and that school will be worth it in the long run.
