I am thankful for this journey and for having a husband who’s been taking it with me. I am thankful for my kids for the most part supporting us and making some changes of their own too. I’m thankful that we have a warm place to live and a job that provides, and that I get to be a stay at home mom for this moment! I’m grateful that I had loving parents who taught me by example how I should live and that left me an outstanding legacy of service and love to follow.
I do have some heartaches in my life. We all do. Mine are probably quite small compared to others. Yet, I know the Lord wants me to learn from this. I wish I didn’t have so much to learn! I’ve heard that on the other side of suffering is a greater capacity to love. I find it easy to feel love for others and I often feel it in abundance, yet I have a hard time feeling love in return. I have a hard time feeling the Lord’s love for me, although I know it’s there. Maybe it’s part of all those years of self-loathing that I am working to overcome, I don’t know. I just know that I am not turning to food for comfort anymore and in some ways, it makes me feel things even more bitterly.
Still going to be On Plan for tomorrow! Life is good!
