Today I am thankful. I am thankful everyday, but I don’t say it enough. Life’s stressors tend to get in the way of realizing all the Lord has blessed me with. The Lord woke me up on this beautiful morning beside my husband. I’ve always wanted to be a wife, the Lord blessed me with this amazing man. I’ve always wanted to be a mom, he blessed me with 2 amazing children. I’ve always saw myself when I was younger playing guitar, writing, and singing. The Lord taught me to play and gave me the words and the courage to share my music and thoughts. Growing up, I’ve always imagined myself with horses. I’ve always loved horses and would daydream about riding. I have 3 beautiful horses in my pasture behind my house. As I walk out this morning in the cold to feed them, I look towards the sky and smile. I will scratch their necks and rub my fingers through their mains. Then, I will continue to my all go and no whoa sort of day, and continue to smile. Today, I will not complain of all the problems in the world. Today, I will not compare what I have and don’t have. Today, I am thankful and I will bask in all the blessings the Lord provides, and continue to do so. I may not be where I want to be in life, but I’m right where I’m suppose to be.
