On the 4th day of Thankfulness, my true love gave to me…Family. I love my family on both sides. They are all the loudest, most fun, night owls that you ever want to meet but what I love most is the warmth that you receive in their presence.
Right now, some cousins are staying with my mom and I love it. This is coming from a girl who desires to have a family and lives alone. So, when the kids are running and yelling, playing and to hear their feet going up and down the steps, it really just makes me smile. I don’t get to spend a lot of time with them but when I do, I’m really grateful. My little cousin, Bentleigh (she’s in the white shirt) literally lights up when I walk through the door, she tries to sleep with me and follows me around. She makes me feel like I’m doing something right. Kids have this crazy intuition, they just know things, they know good people and they are so honest and for her to be attached to me means so much to me. I love coming over there for that very reason.
If you guys have read any of my other blogs, then you already know how I feel about my sisters. I love them as if they were my own. When I’m down I look at videos with them in it and I instantly feel better. They are my Why.
Honestly, I could go one by one and tell you how truly special each person is but just think if I’ve done any justice in explaining my love for these kids just think about how amazing their parents are. I’m truly blessed to be apart of both
the Boone’s and the Tracy’s. I am who I am because of who they are.
Also Jubilee Worship Center, OMG, you talking about people that care about you…These are extraordinary people. Most would call them my church family but NO, they are family! They are so bomb!! I mean, they have the biggest hearts and are genuinely glad to see and hear from you, in and out of the 4 walls. I know the church, in some circles, has a bad name but these people give you hope. There’s not enough words that I could put together in any language that can come to the surface to describe the love, support, care or celebration that they give me. I know their lives, it’s not for show, they are truly the real deal and I pray that one day I can give them what they’ve given me…purpose.

Then there’s my friends. I’m so passionate about them because friends are the family you get to choose. In the past I lost friends and I never knew why and I would have to chalk it up to them simply not being meant to be in my life. So the friends that I have left, I cherish. I don’t know if they even read my blog, but words truly can’t even express how much their friendship means to me. They are truly the best when I’m at my worse. They know me and they didn’t leave. That’s everything to me.
My heart is so full of gratitude and I’m so appreciative of each and every last one of the people that fall into these categories.
See ya soon,
