I am a few days late but decided I needed and wanted to do this again as I wake each morning with a Heart filled with Gratitude.
Day 1: I Am Grateful for every moment, every hug, every kiss, every smile and tear that Jim and I shared over our 14+ years together…it was an amazing journey of ups and downs, twists, turns and detours…but together, we lived an amazing life…so I’m Grateful for My Jim…for our time together and the memories I get to hold on to……all the while feeling his Spirit Live on my Heart and Soul ❤️🙏
Thank You For Loving Me
#grateful #thankful #blessed
This is one I shared a year ago on my Facebook page…………throughout my Widow Journey, I’ve chosen to begin and face each day with a Grateful Accepting Heart. By doing so, it softens and helps make the grief manageable.
This Thanksgiving, my second without Jim, will be difficult and very different for me, again.
There is no turkey on the Weber….no pipe smoke wafting in through the window. No sunrise mimosas on the beach. No delivering baked goods to the base……..these are my memories of Thanksgiving past. Ones I am Grateful for.
Today, new memories will be made. Today I’m Thankful to spend this Thanksgiving with a crew of amazing young people and their families…..meaning lots of little ones!!! I am Grateful.
I will shed my tears, but they will be shed with a Grateful heart……for I am Blessed with a Love that transcends time and space. Yes I mourn what is lost, but I also celebrate.
I am Thankful. I Am Blessed.
“I continue to open my heart to the world, a heart that though still broken, is coming back together.”
Day 6: I’m grateful for New Beginnings. Slept well. Woke to the sound of my Grandson Mason talking up a storm…..today I begin the first new chapter of this, my ‘new life’.
As I was having my coffee…looking up, I couldn’t help but smile knowing Jim is looking down smiling…giving me his two-thumbs. It all feels right.
Day 5: I’m Am Grateful for the Rising of the Sun ☀️ It was our favorite time of day. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful send-off. GodSpeed my Husband💛 I leave you physically here, but know that wherever my journey takes me, you’ll be guiding me along. ❤️
