Sunday appreciation post, because I just get in these emotional moods lately where I feel so eternally grateful. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
I was in the grocery store last night and I saw this little family struggling to pay for their groceries. I really wanted to intervene but I couldn’t get the courage to say anything before they were already using a different payment method and swiftly leaving. I was kicking myself all the way home 😫But if you know me, you know I am really shy- which I’m working on.
But I got in the car and tears just rolled down my face as I realized how blessed I am even through all this adversity. The truth is- drake and I have major struggles. I have had over half a million dollars in medical bills since December 2014 when all of this began. But- even yet, I’ve never missed out on anything. Drake has always made sure I had my treatments, the most high quality food, all my supplements. We aren’t well off by any means. Our walls and home are very bare for a reason (notice we have no Christmas tree or presents/decorations.) But if I wouldn’t have told you, you probably would have never noticed. Because, for everything that actually matters, like love and joy, we’re absolutely overflowing.
Also, just because I think it’s awesome- everyone complimented me on this dress and the way I looked Thursday night. My dress was 19.99 from “The Body Shop” like 5 years ago. You don’t need a designer tag to turn heads. Confidence is what really gets people’s attention, and that is just something that can not be bought. 🖤 I love you. #happysunday #grateful
