Welcome to another Transformation Tuesday here at Createyou86. With Thanksgiving right around the corner we wanted to make a post about being thankful/grateful. This year has been a whirlwind. We certainly didn't think in January that we would be where we are here in November.
We owe our family for the generosity that they have shown us the past few years. We needed a new start, and that is exactly what we were afforded. We couldn't be more grateful for their love, and support.
In the past few days we have seen the oldest ally to The United States go through a horrific event that we went through fourteen years ago only on a larger scale. We will remember, and are grateful for the sacrifice that these people made, that the law enforcement made, and the sacrifice that France itself has made. Our hearts go out to the people of Paris. #peaceforparis
We are grateful that we are healthy, and that we have been relatively healthy for the past few years. We have lost a few good friends in the past couple years that we will miss dearly, but we are grateful everyday that we have our health, and we realize that things could be much worse.
4. Great Friends
Although we have been away from our long time friends for the past two years, we are so grateful for the friends that we made in California. We are grateful for their continued support, and love.
5. Having The Love Of My Life
Having the love of my life by my side is amazing. We help each other learn so much about the world, and ourselves. We are grateful for each other, and the loving support that we provide each other on a daily basis.
6. Our Pets
Our pets are amazing, and they are the perfect example of unconditional love. For this we are eternally grateful. Do we spoil our animals? YES!.... Do they love us for it? YES!
Laughter is the best medicine. The past two years have been pretty interesting, and at some times really, really, really hard. Laughter has helped us get through the good times, and the bad so we are more than grateful for laughter.
We know....most of us think that there aren't enough hours in the day, but when you lose someone close to you, you realize that you sometimes take time for granted. We are grateful for the time that we have had thus far on earth, and being able to spend it with people we love.
9.The Kindness Of Strangers
When moving to a new place it is REALLY scary. I don't care if you are moving a half hour away, or 2,969 miles away like we have done (I moved to California first, and now James has moved to Pennsylvania). Sometimes you are grateful for that one kind word from someone who you don't even know. This is what i can say about the church that we joined in California. They offered us a place of worship, financial help when we needed it most, and most of all friends that we will never forget.
10. Wisdom That Comes With Age
Over the past two years we have learned A LOT! Today i wouldn't dream of doing some of the things that i did two years ago, or even longer than that for that matter. We live, and learn, and grow wiser which we can all be grateful for.
We hope that you have enjoyed reading some of the things that we are grateful for this holiday season, and we would love to know what you are grateful for. Let us know in the comments below!
