Thanksgiving. A day highlighted in celebration of gratitude. It is a day set aside for us to plan a meeting place, cook our favorite dishes, share a large meal and laughter with those who genuinely love us. Our families. Our Friends.
What am I thankful for?
My heart is continually in a state of gratitude. God has been good to my family and me. Everyone connected to me is blessed including my friends, acquaintances, business partners, and my clients. I am surrounded by an enormous amount of support. I am surrounded by pure love. I can honestly say everyone in my inner circle LOVES me for me. I do not take for granted the security that has been established in my relationships. I in return love them too.
The year 2017 isn’t over yet, but all the things God has given me the strength to accomplish from my vision board has come to pass except for one major project I’ve been patiently waiting for since June. I am not going to lie, it has been stressful waiting without answers. However, God put it on my heart to find a plan B a couple months ago. Plan B is already mapped out and in motion if the original plan does not work out. I am so thankful to God because he has ensured me that no matter what happens, I WILL BE AN AUTHOR IN JANUARY 2018! I am grateful that my hero gives me peace of mind. I know God loves me. I love him too.
A moment of silence
I am thankful for my loved ones who have passed away. I reflect on the value they left behind that has made my life better. I miss my grandmother and Aunt Bo terribly. I miss my grandmother smile and our casual conversations. I also miss my beloved Aunt Bo. I miss seeing her at family functions. I miss how she would give me the side-eye every time I said something crazy or provocative. It is interesting how annoying my Aunt side-eye used to be to me, and now that she is gone, I miss it…..a whole lot. Anyway. I salute them both. I am thankful to have had a personal relationship with women who were of substance. My grandma and aunt were godly women who lived a good life. I miss their warm embrace. I miss their love. Even though they are no longer here physically, I love them with all my heart.
I am thankful for you
When I created KeiannaJohnson.com eleven months ago, my goal was to become a freedom builder. I planned to give people hope and the tools they need to find themselves. I wanted everything I wrote to come from my personal experiences either good or bad, I wanted to share it on this platform to show those who are going through life transitions that they are not alone. Life is a process. Life change. People change, and we reverse. I wanted my readers to see when a person refuses to give up, they will be successful. Thank you for reading my blog post, commenting and sharing my content with your audience. I appreciate you. I love you.
I close this post with one of my favorite songs by Hezekiah Walker; Grateful. Happy Thanksgiving. Have a great day.
What are you thankful for?
