Week 3 – Thankful Tuesdays
Even if I could choose, I’m sure I’d pick you as my family in every life. I’m thankful to the Almighty for having given me such a beautiful gift even before I took a step in this world. I know I don’t say it often. Words come to me easily when I write, but when they are to talk about you, it becomes difficult, not because I can’t write about you, but the biggest praise seems but a speck when it comes to you. </p
I’m thankful that you were there to guide me when I needed it most, that you taught me those lessons that a book did not have, and instilled them in me without giving up when I couldn’t understand. I’m thankful that you gave me my space, and let me to find my path. I’m thankful that you continue to be there and tell me when a path opens up that you feel might be good for me. I’m glad for the love that you shower on me even in the moments I don’t shower it back, and glad that you see my state of mind even if I don’t share it. I’m also thankful for the times you didn’t seem to believe in me. It hurt, I will be honest, but it made me stronger and made me stand on my own feet. </p
I know that whatever I have thanked you for, you do it without expecting to hear thanks, and that’s why you’re family. But it’s just to let you know that your support is priceless to me, that I love you beyond words, and I’m glad you’re there.
