2020 has been a year, hasn’t it? We have all somehow been affected by this pandemic. Jobs, relationships, school, and well basically what we considered our “normal” has been flipped upside down. It might seem like there’s little to be thankful for but we must always look at the silver lining. This year for me personally opened up my eyes to a few things. Today I want to share 5 things I’m thankful for in 2020.
More than ever health has been something that I am more than thankful for. I thank God every day that my family and I are healthy. And I pray that God continues to shield us. Being healthy is something that I didn’t really bat an eye to until now and I don’t take it granted for anymore.
Family is everything to me, sadly this year we suffered some losses and it was so difficult on us. It still is actually. But through our grieving process, we have grown closer. I find myself wanting to spend more time with them and just cherishing every little moment. I call them a little more and let them know how much I love them. Even the family I’m not near I make it a point to FaceTime and make time for them.
Three. My job/Blog
I am so thankful to be still able to work during this time and able to help provide for my family. I know a lot of people have lost their jobs and that truly breaks my heart. I’m also very thankful for the opportunities my blog and Instagram have brought me. Every opportunity big or small is received with so much love and gratitude.
Oh my God, my friends have been so amazing to me. They have kept me grounded and lifted me up when I need it. I have faced a few bumps and sometimes some sinkholes this year but I know I can always count on my girls to be there. I am so lucky to have been able to meet so many wonderful woman this year and that I actually get to call friends. The amount of love that I feel from them each just makes my heart burst.
Five. My Faith
That’s funny as I was typing this my sister called me to do our weekly prayer request and to check up on each other. But yes my faith has grown immensely, I am in no way shape, or form perfect but I am trying to trust God and his plan. I am learning to just let go and let God. It hasn’t been easy and I am nowhere near where I need to be but I am in a better place.
Like I said it may seem like our world is upside down right now but let’s try to look at the good even if it’s something small. It’s very easy to focus on the bad and even though we are going through something so scary I am hopeful that we will all be okay. Know that my heart is with you all. Hope you enjoyed reading about the 5 things I am thankful for in 2020.
