As I gather around the table tomorrow with friends and family this year here a few things I am thankful for ❤️
I am thankful for the sadness I have felt and the tears I have shed for without them I would not know the meaning of laughter or the magic behind a smile.
I am thankful for the many nights I knew only worry and fear for without it I would not appreciate the days filled with peace and contentment.
I am thankful for the hurt and the anger I have felt for without it I would not have learned the meaning or power of forgiveness.
I am thankful for the moments I have felt despair and hopelessness for without it I would not realize the power of prayer or the magic in believing.
I am thankful for the hardships I knew as a child for without them I would not know how to be a loving parent.
I am thankful for the many times my dreams have been shattered for without it I would not know the meaning behind hope.
