Thankful Thursday

The thankful Thursday meme is a great weekly meme where we can place into words our thoughts about what we are thankful for.

This past September I found out that the shop my husband and I shared would have to be shut down. I was so worried about him that I forgot about myself. Somehow while worried about everyone else I slipped into depression and lost hope in many things. The only constant was my Lord was always going to be there and from him I would gain my help. Well through these last few months I did find myself depending more on him but somehow while not fully knowing it started to close into a shell. Yes we got through Christmas, I think because the Lord was there and my mind was not full of doubt and gloom. Well, recently I visited the doctor and he is a great friend of mine and suggested that I am a bit depressed. I reckon I am, was and did not want to be anymore. He said he could place me on meds but if I wanted to try other ideas first he would wait. I decided to exercise, proper diet and to change my sleep habits. Guess what all has worked better and now as they say I can see through the rain. I want to list a few things I am thankful for.

As always I am thankful that the Lord was by my side and without him could of been totally lost.

I am thankful that my church home all though I totally turned my back on them loved me enough to welcome me back.

I am thankful that the friends that I neglected never gave up and are still as close as they always were.

I am thankful that my mom even as she ages still has great wisdom in that gray head of hers. Wisdom that can carry her kids through the worst of times

I am thankful for the blessing of a granddaughter that helped me to stay sane even as I slipped away.

I am thankful for my husband, children, brothers and sisters who helped me when it is me who often help them.

Thank you for all you bloggers out there who i have made friends with. When worrying about others I reckon we do neglect our selves but then blogging was an outlet for me and you all were there for me. Thank you.

I always enjoy "meeting" new friends. :-) Second, praising God you are feeling better emotionally and for the support you have with your family and friends. God is good even though sometimes it is difficult to see...I often go back to scripture to remind me of His attributes, which gives me what I need to put my trust in Him. Have a blessed TT!
