Thankful

Tonight I want to say how thankful I am for my in-laws.  Scott has been great listening to me when I can't hardly speak. He has really been so helpful and loving toward me.  Of course Momma Gabbard is great.  She still loves me and wants me in her life even though David is no longer here with us.  This week has been really hard for me.  I miss David.  I sometimes think oh I can do this, but then I see or hear something that just makes my heart ache.  I praise God I had such a wonderful love in my life, but it is hard being without him.  David was such a good influence on me and encourager for me.  He taught me so much in our short marriage.  I have found that I get so angry some times that he is gone, but when I say my prayers at night I let God know how thankful I am that he chose me to be with David.  What others might think of as a hardship I endured, I think of as the love of my life.  David had the incredible ability to show and make me feel loved.  I will alway be thankful I met him even when I am so sad this is how it ended.
