Be Thankful!

In everything, give thanks!

My last blog, right before Thanksgiving, was about being thankful. Little did I know at that time how life can change in an instant.  

My husband was in a very severe accident before Christmas and it has really changed our lives. After spending over a month in the hospital, I now am his caregiver. We have learned to appreciate every little thing that we can, even just spending time together.  

When you get married, you say “For better or worse, for richer or poorer and in sickness or in health,” but you don’t always know what that will mean. I have definitely learned what that means. We are now closer than we have been in years and have learned to appreciate and experience a deeper love for each other.

Even though life throws you a few curves, it doesn’t mean you should sit in remorse all of the time. Take time to enjoy the small things in life, like being alive. Show your family how much you care for them and say “I love you,” often. 

We do have a lot to be thankful for even though life changes. We still have each other and our family. Like I said before, we need to be thankful for the little things in life as God did not promise us that we would be without troubles. We need to put our faith in God and he will be with us to help us get through our trials in life. Our priorities change and that is okay as we know God has total control over everything.

In everything, give thanks! -Sharon Almquist
