Tonight, I just want to close out this month of blogging by saying that I am thankful. I love my family. I love my job and the people I with whom I work. I am thankful for the opportunity to get off of work and come home, to my own house. I appreciate all of the friends in my life and I pray that I always remember to make sure they know this.
I am thankful for people who go out of their way to make sure you are okay, but I want to make sure I am that person to others.
I am appreciative for so much, but what I am realizing is that I need to make sure that I am the person others are thankful for, also. I don't want to be the one who takes and takes but never gives. I don't want my friendship to be a burden, but to be a mutual give and take with no expectations or repayment etc. I am the type of person that will always be here for those I love, but the problem is I'm not always good at recognizing when there is a need.
So, to all of my loved ones, if there is ever anything I can do for you, will you please never hesitate to ask?? I know that asking is uncomfortable, but I really am not good at figuring these things out. I promise I won't be burdened and actually look forward to the chance to "pay it forward".
Meanwhile, I am going to make it a point to be more in tune with people and their needs so that I can begin to meet needs without having to be asked.
I hope this makes sense...I have just had MANY people lately stepping up and pouring into me and my family and I feel so appreciative.
