Giving Thanks

Last Thanksgiving I was forced to deal with THE biggest decision of my life. My marriage, or the lack thereof. It has been one year today that I have been separated from my soon-to-be-ex-husband. I can't even start to explain all that I have gone through. No one reading this has the time. All I can say is that it was not his decision, it was mine and he made that completely understood through his behavior. I have lost just about everything that I love and although this isn't the end, I still have a lot to be thankful for.

I am thankful first and foremost, that God never left my side, even when it felt like I couldn't carry on.

I am thankful for my boys. They are now in Hawaii (as of 26Aug) with their father, but I talk to them almost everyday and I miss and love them with every ache and beat of my heart.
 They are my world.

I am thankful for my BRH. We have been apart almost a year and I can't wait to hug the ever loving crap out of him the next time I see him.

I am thankful for all my friends and family that have been my support system and have witnessed me at my utmost worst--and they are still my friends. Family, you have no choice.....
My sis and I
Lastly, I am thankful for my life. There were days when I really did believe that it was limited.
I don't even have an explanation, I'm just me.

No matter the past, what was said or done and the future, I am truly thankful for all that I have experience and the people that experienced it with me. I have been tested and tried and am still the person I have been, just a little stronger and maybe a little less tolerant. I am thankful for all of it.


  1. Fight on Pru!!! Life is what you make it and you know as well as anyone what hard work is! You will have everything you have ever wanted and more!!!!!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

  2. You are a strong and resilient person and for that I love your guts! You are one of the BEST People a girl could have as a friend. I am thankful to have you back in my life. I will be here with you as long as you want me around. I cant express how much I admire you for standing up and fighting for your life. It might suck now but I know it will get better. I Love you so very much.
