I had planned to write this post last week Thursday on the American holiday of Thanksgiving, but I ended up spending the day with a sick toddler. There is no expiration date on gratitude so I am going to write it anyway.
I am grateful for so many things this year. I am super thankful for the amazing staff in the Krugersdorp Private Hospital’s medical intensive care unit for taking such amazing care of my mom in law for over a month. I am incredibly grateful that Lucas still has his ouma and that she is still physically present in our lives.
I am grateful for new friends made. I have become more active in the homeschooling and WordPress communities and have made some fantastic new friends.
I am grateful for old friends who have stood by me and with me through difficult times this year.
I am grateful for my family…it may not be perfect but it is amazing and we have supported each other through a lot this year.
I am grateful for the things that I have learned and that I am becoming more willing to be vulnerable. I am grateful that I am getting better at giving and receiving help unconditionally.
Most of all, I am grateful that I am still here and that I know depression lies.
Love and gratitude,
