Gratitude

There is no such thing as gratitude unexpressed. If it is unexpressed, it is plain, old-fashioned ingratitude. ~Robert Brault


I am so grateful for the people I have surrounding me.
I’m reminded frequently but say it rarely. So here it is.

Thank you.
Thank you for loving me as seriously flawed as I am….
Thank you for supporting me in all of the trials I’ve faced.
Thank you for knowing I need to be in control of my own life and make my own decisions. Even if you can predict the future and know that decision will knock me on my ass.
Thank you for helping to pick me back up.

Thank you for understanding that I sometimes need my own time to detach from my life for a minute and de-stress.
Thank you for rolling your eyes and laughing at the ways I blow off said stress….but never judging me for it ;)

Thank you for always being willing to help when there aren’t enough hours in the day and I feel like I’m neglecting my son or myself.
Thank you for sharing the load, even though it’s not yours to carry.
Thank you for allowing me to help carry your load – it makes me happy to return the favor.

I’m so very very luck to have you in my life.
