Last year Jared and the kids went to Texas for his family’s reunion. I wasn’t well enough to go physically or mentally. It was one of the hardest times of my life. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I was heartbroken that I just couldn’t go with my family.
Over the last year I’ve been working really hard in my spirituality, in counseling, and in my physical health. It has been a long, trying year. I’ve had miracles along the way that I’m utterly grateful for! I’m healing and getting stronger each and every day.
My biggest hope was that this year I would be able to have our family in our home and that I would be able to host like I have done almost every year prior. With a lot of prayer, and through the grace of God, I was able to do just that!
We had all of Jared’s siblings over. My sister and her kids came too, however I didn’t get a pic of us…or me and my little family….Darn it!
The miracle of technology also let us visit and see Jared’s mom! <3
The food was delicious and the company was wonderful!
I was so grateful for everyone’s help in making the day special. I’m even more grateful for my Heavenly Father for helping me the entire day to manage my anxiety and that I was able to enjoy myself and be with my loved ones. I feel beyond blessed!!!
