Happy Tuesday my lovely readers! 

I hope y'all are having a good week so far!

I've been scrolling through Facebook just about every 5 minutes since Hurricane Florence hit NC, I've been trying to keep up with all the latest news and sharing as much as I can. I can't believe how many people are left without homes. And I can't even begin to imagine how bad things COULD'VE been if it had hit as a category 4! Thank God it didn't! 

My family is safe and sound! They've been without electricity since Saturday I think, but other than that, they are fine, and our home is good too! Praise the Lord! 

Which brings me to today's post....

A while back I published a similar post, you can check that out HERE  , with everything that's going on back home, I was inspired once again to just remind everyone to be grateful. I know things, life, can be so tough, but there's always something to look forward too. I have seen so many families lose everything, I've seen posts about people trying to get back home, people being scared because they don't know if they still have a home, people have lost their lives, family members, and pets. And gosh it all just makes my heart ache! 

But it also reminds me that I have so much to be grateful for! I have a good husband, a wonderful little boy, a family that loves me, a couple of friends who accept me for me, and online friends who support me so much! I am healthy, I am alive, and I have everything I NEED. I often find myself thinking so negative about a certain situation, a temporary situation, that I forget how much there is to be thankful for. 

A little over a year ago, I was such a different person, I isolated myself from everyone. I was in such a negative place! Alot of it had to do with me not feeling good about myself physically, so I started working out, but another major part was that I was constantly feeling ungrateful. We are renting our house, and I kept thinking, well I wish we could buy a house, we have a good car, and again I kept telling myself, well we need a truck, we have the basic furniture we need, but I wanted more....

I never once just thanked God and my husband for everything we already had. We might not have everything we WANT but we sure do have everything we NEED!

So with everything going on back home, just take a moment to be grateful for what you have, take a moment to thank God, and to thank all the men and women who are working so hard to clear the roads, rescue people, provide food and shelter, and to all our linemen who are working endlessly to get things back up and running. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Thank you so much for stopping by and please know that I am praying so hard!

P.S I should really start calling Texas home, but it might take a while lol
