Thankful Thursday

"The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you."  John E. Southard

There have been some amazing people in my life who've reached out to me...who've showed me incredible kindness.....who never gave up on me....never left....never turned away....and who believed in me when I couldn't. I'm so grateful for all of them. Today....I'm thankful for:

1.  Lane who encouraged me not to give up but to keep fighting
2. Carl who loved me when I didn't know how to love myself
3. My kids who teach me everyday that life is meant to be lived and enjoyed
4. My friends who are in my corner and who see something in me they like
5. All you awesome bloggy people who have only offered amazing support and compassion

You are a true ispiration to me, friend. In all the struggles you faced as a young woman, your heart has become like Jesus' , in how you minister hope to those who have been wounded in life.. Your comments on Threads of Hope have helped me rise up each day, knowing that you have become stronger in the time of your healing. And I can be that as well, in mine.. I thank you , dear sweet girlfriend.. you are a treasure to both the Lord, and to me, as a bloggy friend...

Blessings sweet Sarah... So thankful for EACH & ALL your people that have been kind and encouraged you to keep on keeping it on...

Thank You Lord for sending these people to intervene and be there as human representatives of YOU and Your Love for her! Sarah, if you did not know it before you have plenty of people loving you through your "Gentle Recovery" for Him and because you deserve it! Thank You Lord, for Sarah's kids and friends! I count it an honor to love on her! Praise God for forever friends!
