Tuesday at Ten {THANKFUL}

Tuesday at Ten {THANKFUL}

This weeks prompt phrase is:


Being thankful right now is very difficult for me. I am seriously depressed. The depressive part of manic/depressive you could say. These phases for me are so difficult to live through and now at this time of thankfulness it is even harder.

I have to say that I am thankful that God spared my life during that horrific time 3 years ago when I attempted suicide. It was a time just like this. Only it was just before my birthday. I was released on my birthday so at least I didn’t have to be there during my birthday.

Not that it would have mattered. My ex-husband forgot it most of the time and he never thought about a cake. So my last good memory of a birthday was ruined by the man I was living with. He gave me the best birthday yet and then ruined it by being a con man who took from me and most of the other tenants. Not a great association to my birthday so spending it in the hospital wouldn’t have been that big a deal.

Holidays are very depressing for me. Ever since I was a little girl I didn’t like holidays. They up my depression.

So a short Thankful List:

My family, friends and that includes my online friends.

A home and food to eat.

My father is still alive at 83. Happy Thanksgiving Mom in Heaven!

Each week I post a prompt phrase and you finish the phrase and write how that phrase fits you and your life or your thoughts.

Whether it be just writing a story behind the phrase or being as creative as you wish using photos, poems, art, or graphics – whichever creative way you choose.

You have 6 days to write and link up your blog at the bottom of the page so that others can link up with you.

Be sure to visit your “link up” neighbor and spread the joy of connection! A new Prompt word is posted every Tuesday Morning at 10am, the link up closes at 11pm the night before.

Every Monday evening (the day before the new word is posted) I will choose ONE highlighted writer of the week to be highlighted and shared on the Tuesday at Ten Facebook page for all to see. You will also get an award graphic for that week to post on your blog.

Make sure to visit the Tuesday at Ten Facebook page to view the winner and for daily news!

Remember  – it’s not about being perfect, it’s about being YOU. Have FUN

      My dad is starting to open up to me about my mental health and his. No smiles today or lately. Seeing my therapist Wednesday and nurse for my meds on Dec 8. this is not a good time. My sister doesn’t understand not coming to a big holiday dinner with the family. Even more of us on Christmas.

        We can only live one day at a time. We are granted a very short time in this world. Find peace and joy on any level you can. Sometimes it can feel like a lot of work, but the emotion it elicits is worth it. Best always.

    I’m glad you were able to find some things to be thankful for. Sometimes it’s so difficult…. one would think it would be easy. I’ve always liked the holidays but this year is different. I don’t even know if I’ll decorate a tree. Hang in there, Tessa
