With Thanksgiving just behind us and the holidays just around the corner I find myself reflecting on what I am grateful for. This has been a particularly hard season and I sometimes find it hard to feel grateful when I am overwhelmed with the stresses of life. I was lucky to have some time off this week and was finally able to relax after going nonstop for the past few weeks. This time made me take a step back and realize that this is just one season, it will end. It also made me think about all of the things I am grateful for, in every season.
I am grateful for my family and friends, my support system. I am grateful for my job (even though it often causes stress). I am grateful that I have a roof over my head, food to eat, and everything I need. I am grateful for my health. I am grateful for Sunday mornings and worship. I am grateful for all the seasons and all the challenges that come with them, challenges equal growth.
Love, Samantha Marie
