22 Things I Am Thankful For

Someone mention in comment I 'ought' to be thankful for something on one of my blog posts. As they did not realize that I use posts to vent about things I have no one to talk to in real life. I suffer from depression. Having to fight depression is an on going issue. I started sharing something each day I am thankful on Facebook. In order to help me through my depression. I wish if people didn't understand something, they would ask questions. Instead of accusing people of something that is far from the truth. 

As I am trying to be more positive. It isn't easy to do. If you are my Facebook friend and interact with my posts, you would know this. If anyone has questions or comments, I try my best to answer them.  I was going to wait and share this at the end of the month. Instead, I thought I would share what I have been thankful each day on Facebook with you all. That doesn't mean these are the only things I am thankful. Anyone who truly knows me, knows I love each of my children without question. I am thankful for my children. I have given up and sacrificed many things for my children.

My point is instead of telling someone how they ought to thankful when you don't know everything that is going on. You should ask questions. Nobody has the right to tell another person how they ought to thankful when they have not been in their shoes. Nor know what is going. as there are always more details than what one puts in a post. Please remember that. As you may think you are helping someone by telling them how to be thankful. Instead your comment can be very hurtful.

  1. I think it's a good idea not to post pictures of real people, but since you mentioned it...yes, your avatar is a good-looking face.
