I am thankful.
Thankful for love.
There’s the reason I know what love is- Jesus.
There’s the love I was born into- Family.
There’s the love of a best friend- Rebecca.
There’s the love of a man- Jake.
All of these loves help to somehow make me feel complete and joyful, each day. The difficult task is to maintain the healthy balance and continue to love them back. Sometimes it gets exhausting and sometimes I feel like I have failed. I have not listened to that person, I have not served that person, I have not loved that person. In all of these relationships, they are two sided. If I do not initiate anything, then the relationship does not move forward. My thoughtful conclusion: I am thankful for the love of these relationships. Thankful enough to continue working everyday to ensure they’re here to stay.
