Today...I am thankful for being single.
"WHAT'S THAT?" you say...."You're happy to be single???!!" "Are you CRAZY??!"
Here's my reasoning (I actually do have a reason.......today, at least..haha)
As I was lying in my bed last night, saying my prayers...I began my usual "talk" with God. Something you may not know about me is that I will lay down in bed around 10 and maybe not go to sleep until midnight....because I'll just talk and talk and talk with God. I actually talk out loud...in a soft voice, as if I'm talking to a friend that is seated right next to me. I cherish these times at night...It's just me and Him...no distractions...no noises...just me and Him.
Last night, as I was "chatting"...I began to get emotional about a few things...I talked with Him about marriage and children. As I do every night, I told Him that I will trust His plan and be patient...and then, I. Lost. It. For some reason..I just felt overwhelmed for about 5 minutes...
Then, suddenly...I felt such a peace come across me...such love and overwhelming joy. I couldn't help but smile...a BIG smile. I realized that when I do get married....when I do have children....this sort of "alone" time will be completely different.
Also...I have such an amazing opportunity right now, being single, to do things that I will be unable to do once I have a family to take care of.
So...even though I have my moments of frustration...I now have more clarity and understanding...and, I'm happy. Truly and completely happy...
I hope you all have a beautiful and thankful Thursday...we all have something to be thankful for...what is your blessing today?
