This Thanksgiving, I have plenty to be thankful for. I have an incredible church family and amazing friends. I'm currently sitting in IHOP with a group of them laughing about everything under the sun. I love them so dearly.
So this blog is for them.
Your love has seen me through some of the darkest days. Your laughter has kept me going on the hardest days. You are no longer just friends. You are my family.
It would be incredibly easy to focus on what I've lost this holiday season. But I choose to focus on what I do have. I've lost a lot this year, but I've also gained a lot.
For some of you, the holidays are difficult. They are painful and full of bad memories. I want you to know that you aren't alone in this. We see you. You matter. What you're going through matters.
You will get through this season. You will be better for it.
If you are reading this, then there is still breath in those lungs that God gave you.
You're story is not finished.
If you walk this road alone, please let me walk with you.
I love road trips.
And I would love to travel with you.
I hope that you find a group of people as wonderful as the people I have in my life.
Life was not meant to be done alone.
So let's walk.
As always you can keep up with me over at ohhaiiitsbrandii.wordpress.com
Until next time,
