My testimony why I am Thankful

Happy thanksgiving to everyone reading this. Today I would love to share with you why I am thankful because I feel so thankful for a number of things I’ll be listing below. So I hope you enjoy reading it as much I love sharing this with you friends. 

Parents
The first thing I’m thankful about today is having my mother, I am thankful that I have such an amazing mother. Proverbs 22:6 ”Train up a child in the way he, should grow and when he is old he will never depart from it” I’m so thankful with the way I grew up, since I was 6 my parents taught me how to read the bible, pray before doing my daily activities, and this has been a part of my life, that I am so thankful of. I grew up in a small village, but my mom and dad had a modern mind. She is my number 1 supporter, she always got my back and advises me the right way. I could remember last year when I told my mom about traveling to the state for studies, she knew it would cost us a lot of money but she still supported me to follow my dream. I could still remember before I lost my dad, we never had an discussion about marriage. One thing he said to me was, “Gone are those days when your mum and I were rushed into marriage with understanding what marriage really means. Arrange marriages are for the past. Whenever you are ready for marriage, God will direct the right one to you,, but if you choose to be single, feel free if that’s what makes you happy. It’s a free world and it’s your life, you take your decision and we as  parents are here to support and give you the best advice.

Friends
I made awesome friends back then in high school, in church in my dancing club and family friends, but the numbers of friends doesn’t matter because you could have bunch of friends and only one could be a real friend or none. I am thankful that I am still in touch with a few friends now, that I know they got my back,  they love and accept me the way I am.

Relatives
I am not really close with all my relatives, because they live in different parts of the world, but I’m grateful to God to have a lot of bunch to relate. And they are all successful in their ways, respected in society. They are all educated in respective fields
In my family we are all successful my eldest brother is a doctor and happily married, my second brother is a Chef and also happily married my two sisters are still schooling and one has a bachelor degree and the other has a master degree, there’s nothing like molesters, or criminals in my family.

Life
I am thankful for my life, food, my health my supportive friends and family. I love the way things are going in my life. Sure I have setbacks in life,and made mistakes in the past, but I’m happy I learned from my mistakes and failures.  They made me a strong woman today and completely changed my life. I’m thankful I met amazing friends, people who are genuinely happy for me, (not fake love). I‘m thankful to have bumped into to these people
I am thankful for the things I have listed above. I did not really have to struggle. I lived a luxurious life before I lost my dad, but I still live comfortable now(not luxurious though!). I always feel privileged and bless whenever I hear when others talk about their struggles and hardship they have gone through. My memories of childhood was wonderful, I wish I can be a kid again I really feel thankful because I had the greatest upbringing and support, growing up as a child.

So here are the list of things I’m thankful for. My advice is, appreciate the little things you have in life, in order to enable God to do more in your lives. Be thankful in every situation you find yourself because you don’t know how privilege could be disguised as.
