It is a couple of days before Thanksgiving and I sit here pondering the events of last couple of years….
Six years ago, my life was in complete shambles. My marriage was a disaster and I was trying to hold on to whatever sanity I could muster. A few weeks before Thanksgiving I had asked my husband for a divorce. I couldn’t keep on living with an alcoholic–the anger, resentment and just plain confusion were too much to bear. We had been invited to my sister-in-laws parents for Thanksgiving dinner–however was I going to make it through the day. I sat around the table as everyone stated “something they were grateful for”; I couldn’t think of anything. I must have mumbled something that appeased the masses but I really didn’t feel grateful.
Fast forward to present day. I am so grateful for everything God has taken me through, given me, and His love that He continues to pour out on me. My husband celebrates 6 years of sobriety, my marriage has been restored, and our daughter is a senior in high school. We could have only made this far by the grace of God.
Everything I am, have, and love is due to Jesus, My Lord and Savior, and I am eternally grateful.
