FULL of Thanks (Thankful)

Even tho this post is part of the #happydiabeticchallenge, I’ll actually be off the diabetes topic today.  So, here it is.  The answer to the today’s question, “What are you most thankful for?”

This is my first Thanksgiving in our new home.  In Colorado!

And although I have so many things to be grateful for, I’m putting that one at the top of my list because it’s brand new.  Firsts, as we all know, are special.

I’m SO grateful that my husband, Fermin, was laid off from his job.  It was during that in-between job time that we actually made the move.  It was a life long dream for both of us, and rather than waiting for it to happen to us, we decided to make it happen.

Once we made the decision in our heads and hearts, everything quickly fell into place.  And I believe things go that way when it’s meant to be.

Now we live in a place that is as beautiful as any vacation/destination spot I’ve ever been to.  I am definitely living the dream right now.

So, I’m thankful for EVERYTHING.  I’m thankful for that shitty day Fermin got laid off.  And I’m thankful for the years I spent in Dallas feeling stuck.  I’m thankful for how out of my grasp the idea of moving felt for for quite sometime.  I appreciate THIS, right now, all the more because getting here wasn’t necessarily easy.

I am thankful that right now, I’m healthy and so happy.  And I just want to live in this moment, this right now, as long as possible.  These are, most definitely, the good old days.

I'm a dog-lovin', music-makin', jewelry-creatin', lover of life... and I just happen to have Type 1 diabetes. I think of it diabetes as my sometimes challenging friend, who sometimes frustrates me, but overall~ I know she's a weird kind of blessing.
