Oh, how grateful I am on this Thursday morning! I have a wonderful husband, we are about to head to the 2012 London Olympics, my student loan is almost paid off, I’m going to finally get to ride a hot air balloon and we are healthy and happy!
However, the thing that I am most thankful for this week is Ryan and I’s communication. My feeling had been hurt and I thought I had dealt with it, but something happened that made me realize I had not dealt with it. My feelings actually got hurt worse. After being upset I knew I needed to talk to Ryan about it. Sometimes its so hard to put your feeling into words that others will understand. I did my best. Ryan asked questions to make sure he understood what I was saying. We talked about it all. Ryan held me and made sure I knew he cared.
After talking with Ryan the burden was completely lifted and I knew that I had actually dealt with the situation that time. What a wonderful feeling! I am so thankful that through our communication we can understand, forgive and learn. I am thankful for the work that Ryan and I put in to make sure we have good communication.
