Give Thanks

To my friends in our blogging community:

I wanted to show you a little of the gratitude I have for each of you and the bonds we have all formed.  Click on the link below – the one that says Give Thanks – and see the card I made for all of you:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love you all,

  1. Thank you for the wonderful card, and for taking time to design it too… Most of all, thank you for always being here for us, for me. Every time I need someone in the blogosphere, you’re always here with your encouraging words, invaluable advice and for sharing your stories with us. This year, as hard and as painful as how things turned out, I am so thankful that I had been given the chance to be a mother to my beautiful son. I have to admit, in the beginning, even after I had him, I couldn’t say those words because it was still too raw and painful. And now, was it all worth it? I’m afraid to say yes, but if changing one tiny thing will erase my son from my life, then I must say all that betrayal was worth it because I can only imagine that my life will be so meaningless without him. OK so sorry for this rant, but I’ve been through hell and back again last week (will try to write about it as soon as I can) and since coming out of it, things are now looking much better and I feel much freer. I am thankful that my husband and I stuck it out!

    Wishing you much love and peace during these holiday times to you and your loved ones. Thank you for being my friend.
    Happy Thanksgiving

      You have taught me much about fighting and surviving even when I thought I had nothing left to fight with. You are one of the highlights in my mind when I think of all the things I am thankful for.

      Here’s hoping your holiday is everything you want it to be…

      Love & prayers,

  2. DJ – You are a blessing to us! Happy thanks giving! Have a great day celebrating it with your family! Thank you for having taken the time to design such thoughtful card, and it is beautiful! Thank you for your support and for making me feel heard and not so alone. Love to you all. Happy thanks giving to everyone who reads your blog!

      TTW – It is I who is blessed … many times over by this blog and everyone who visits. I started off my journey with only a journal, but after 3 months decided I needed to reach out and find people like me. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

      When I visit EAJ, I look at the list of blog comments first. Specifically, I look for the comments of people who often say things that speak to my heart. You are one of those people, TTW. May God bless you for taking the time to write.

      Hope you enjoy Thanksgiving all the way down into your soul…

      Love & prayers,

    What a beautiful card, DJ! I only recently found your blog, but I am SO THANKFUL to have found you and a community of others who REALLY UNDERSTAND what I am going through! That is such a blessing! I have shared my struggles with a few people, but my close friends have not gone through this (thankfully), so it is difficult to keep unloading on them month after month. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and I hope you and others here are able to find lots of reasons to be thankful on this day and every day!

    Lots of love, Kali

      Hi Kali – I am so thankful that you found us! Your comments have really struck a chord with me. It is so easy to wallow in my sadness sometimes, and you remind me that I am not alone in my feelings and that it is possible to be happy and grateful in many areas of my life while still dealing with the aftermath of infidelity.

      Praying God’s blessings over your holiday season…

      Love & prayers,
      DJ

      Thank you, Liberty. I enjoyed putting it together, thinking of each of you as I did and praying for your happiness. You are such a blessing, Liberty! You made me stop and think back on why I am here and how I am going to get through this. I am grateful.

      God has been with me every step of the way, even when I was mad at Him and told Him to leave me alone. I pray that He will be with you through your journey, too… hope your Thanksgiving is a blessing to both you and your husband.

      Love & prayers,
      DJ

    DJ what a beautiful card! And you are so clever. Thank you.
    Once in a while someone comes along, someone who just naturally makes everyone feel more alive to life. You’ve been that someone to me. You’ve given me a new perspective on a lot of things. The words you’ve said that I will always remember. And I always look forward to the next words of wisdom.
    So thanks for being the wonderful person you are. You’re a inspiration and I’m glad and very grateful to you.
    Have a great Thanksgiving, and enjoy.

      Oh, Susie, you’re so kind. All of us together make this blog the comfortable place that it is to share and find comfort among friends. I’m just the pilot light for the roaring fire that it is becoming.

      You are a gentle flame among us. You have a special way of saying just the right thing to add some sunshine to the mix. Thank you.

      Happy Thanksgiving!

      Love & prayers,
      DJ
