So, because my brain is pre-occupied with my little boy, I decided to go to blogthings and have a little fun. I love November. It's a great month and Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays ever! :) I think it may top Christmas for me! :)
After taking the quiz I learned....
Your Thanksgiving Personality is Thankful
At Thanksgiving, all you want is a warm bed to sleep in and a home cooked meal to eat. As long as you have those things, you're grateful.
You're able to rise above any of the stress or drama associated with the holidays. You are just happy for what you have.
Whether it's been the best or worst year of your life, you take this day to count your blessings... no matter how small they might be.
And if possible, you try to help someone in need - anyone from a hungry stranger to a lonely friend.
The First Rule of Blogthings Is: You Don't Talk About Blogthings
It's pretty much 100% right on... except for one part. That part about me rising above drama and stress.It's true that I am genuinely happy for what I have. BUT - I hate drama! I really do. It stresses me out. My husband and I are probably 2 of the most NON dramatic people in the world. Think laid back - and then multiply that. I avoid drama like the plague. But when it's forced on me (like in family settings) I get super stressed and usually go home and cry. Then John tells me everything will be okay, and life moves on.
I love the part about whether or not it's the best or worst year ever I can find things to be thankful for. It's true - but the only reason that is true is because of Jesus Christ working in my heart. I've had some pretty tough years recently, but because of God's love for me I always have much more to be thankful for than not... and because of His work in me I find that I am even able to be thankful for the bad/hard things in life. They've taught me valuable lessons. They've taught me patience, trust, and how to lean on Jesus. They've strengthened and matured my walk with my husband and the Lord. They've made me a better person - more loving, giving, and certainly more compassionate.
So this year I think I am the most thankful for the things that have been the hardest in my life. That includes having to wait to meet and bring home Tucker. Because I know God is going to use these time to prepare my heart and our home. I know that this time of waiting is going to make me the best mother I can be through Christ. That makes it worth it.
