Thankful Thursday

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.

I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.

Moving to Mexico

When I was 18 years old I was working in Thrifty Drug Store in Modesto, California. When summer rolled around a handsome new pharmacist started working there and we caught each others eye. We eventually went out on a date and then another. As the summer wore on we were seeing each other every day. I knew that when summer ended he would return to medical school for his last year. I was heartbroken when he left and figured that would be the end of it.

Several weeks later he asked me to marry him and I accepted. He sent an engagement ring. Not a very romantic way to do it, but there were a lot of miles between us. He scheduled a trip back to Modesto and I packed up and went to Guadalajara, Mexico with him. I was not well traveled and it was a huge learning curve, but I managed to get around very well.

I remained there for four months and eventually we knew that it wasn’t to be. I was to young and he was about to be a physician. It was a world I couldn’t fathom. We parted and I returned home, but I came home with more than when I left. I was pregnant and had my one and only child later that year.

What are you thankful for today?
