Blessings Instead

On this Thanksgiving Eve…I’m thinking of the blessings received in spite of, instead of…

instead of the “to-do” list I gave God,
instead of how I was sure it needed to go,
instead of who,  what,  when,  where, or  why…

thanks instead

It is amazing, when we look back on what we thought we knew for absolutely sure that we wanted — even things we grieved over because they never happened. It is amazing how blessed we were that those things never happened or because we never “got” the things we thought for sure that we wanted.

Think back. Think back and find those things. Think about what has happened
INSTEAD.

Think about where you are now, and what you have learned, and who you have become, and where you are headed, due largely in part to those things NOT happening that you were sure that wanted to happen.

Even if those thoughts are painful, and you are still wishing, be patient. You are in the middle point of here to there. If things haven’t worked out, they aren’t done working out yet. You will soon see, beautiful friend, if you have not already,
that everything somehow just works out. It always has, and it always will. Trust this.

Please don’t worry anymore.
Please be at peace.
Please trust
your journey.
You have not been forgotten. ~Brave Girls’ Club
