What I’m Thankful For

Wow where to begin, I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving Eve! This year has gone by so fast and so much has happened especially within this last month, which has made me realize that life is such a blessing and sadly it can end shortly. If you know me personally then I’m sure you already know that I lost my brother; Jacob on October 27th. This came as such a surprise and something I never thought would happen. During my brothers viewing the deacon said that a death of a young person is more difficult to deal with than that of an old person because we’re so used to old people dying that we don’t expect to lose someone so young. We know that one day their time will come to an end and we begin to accept it early on. However, Jacobs death came suddenly and way too soon. In September we celebrated his 23rd birthday with a bbq and had all of our family here at our home to celebrate his amazing life. Jacob was always such a sweet and thoughtful person. He had a contagious smile and a fun personality that I’ll miss forever. This loss hurts and it always will because a piece of our family is missing. But as a family we are taking everything one day at a time and starting to go on again with our lives. As the holidays approach I get saddened in the thought of it never being the same as years past. But with the amazing memories we have, it will last us for the rest of our lifetimes.

Two women I’m so thankful for are my sisters, they’ve been the best older sisters I could have ever been blessed with. We may not always get along but at the end of the day we love each other and our bonds are unbreakable. 

My parents are the people I’m most thankful for. Each and everyday I appreciate just how blessed I am to have them as my parents. They do so much for their kids for which I’m eternally grateful and at the end of the day I want to make them so proud.

I’ve been so blessed within the past 19 years of my life to have such an amazing family and within the past year I’ve met the best person that has changed my life in more ways than one and that’s my boyfriend, Isaac. He makes me a better person each and everyday, he encourages me, he’s the absolute sweetest, and he has the best heart. Everyday I’m so blessed and thankful to have not only him but his amazing family in my life. 

I’m also so grateful to each and everyone of you who take the time to read my posts. It means so much to me and I’m so happy I get to document my life on this platform.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, laughter, and good food! Please be safe and appreciate every little moment

xoxo, Liz
