Gratitude

Good Evening, Dear Readers!

I’m really starting to cut it way too fine with making our dates! Fortunately, I know you understand that life sometimes takes big strides ahead of us and we have to jog a little bit to keep in step with it!

Tonight, I was going to talk about knowing your worth and learning how to articulate it, but that’s going on the backburner for another time.

I have friends of different calibres in my life. I quite like it that way. Some are much older and others much younger than me. Some are married with kids, some are single and unattached. Some are black like me and some are white; some are men and others are female. This kind of variety has helped me to have perspective. To understand the value of my own life and where I’m at in it in relation to theirs. All my friends have taught me to be grateful for the way my life is right now, because I know I will miss how it is now when I’m at a different place later.

I just got home from visiting a friend in hospital. She had an Arthritic episode and was admitted yesterday. She’s 25. 25 and Arthritic! That’s crazy! As we sat together during her visiting hours, I was struck by how I myself have had very few serious visits to the doctor or the hospital for that matter. I’ve never really been a sickly person. I could only imagine the pain she described to me of injections and swollen joints, being bedridden with nothing to do but wait to get better. She’s familiar with most of these discomforts so she handles it like a champ while I felt nothing but terror for her as I listened! My friend is so brave and strong for going through all of this on her own!

I think it’s very important for us to take a moment tonight and thank God for our health. We are healthy, guys! Let that sink in for a moment and give thanks! While you’re at it, take a moment to think about those who, like my friend, struggle with all kinds of illnesses. Pray for their recovery but also for love and light as they brave such storms.

Thanks for popping in tonight and don’t worry, Sunday will be here before you know it😉 Until we meet again!
