Thankful Thursday! First Edition!

Happy Friday Eve Friends! Today I am starting a new weekly post…’Thankful Thursday’! As we approach the holidays it is easy to start becoming more ‘thankful’. I know many people who share something that they are thankful for every day throughout the month of November. This got me to thinking….ya know, we should really be doing this now and continually not just November. This brought the idea of sharing a quick post on Thursdays of something we are thankful for. Just a simple one thing that makes you happy and thankful!

Link up below to share what you are thankful for!

I Am Thankful For YOU!

Seriously, guys, I am so thankful for you all and this format! I started this blog as a school project. While it had been an idea that I had been toying around with fear was holding me back. Fear of the unknown ( I am NOT a computer person ), fear of rejection, fear of bullies, fear of simply what others thought. It might sound crazy to be so fearful about a little blog, but I was ( and honestly still am ). Not being of my friends and family know about this post for these very reasons.

Also, when I started this blog I was in a tough time in my life. My husband was away for months and I was left a first-time mom, working full-time, grad student, in a foreign country all alone. I wish I could say I had a great support group but it was just not the case. Our journey here has been the most difficult of any of our journeys and also a huge blessing! The blog has been an outlet for me during that time and through transitioning to becoming anΒ SHM.

Thank you all for your listening ears, thoughts, and kindness! If you are out their and do not think anyone is thankful for you then today know that I am.

    Love this! And I totally get it. I’d had my blog for years (and made lots of new friends via it) before getting married and moving across the country, but my “internet friends” became even MORE valuable when I left my home.
