During my two years of blogging, I have shared a lot with you all. I have shared my beauty favorites, my thrift store finds and insight into my natural hair journey. One thing I have not shared much about myself on the blog is literally that... I haven't shared much about myself or who I am.
A recent post in the Facebook group, Bloggers Like Me, made me think about sharing something with you. They asked bloggers to post about goals for the upcoming year or what they are thankful for. Well, today, I was thankful for something major. Yesterday was my first day of being back to work.
On October 31, my job ended. Even though I knew the job was ending and I had been applying for jobs for months, the last day of my job came and I had no job to go to. I packed up my box and went home. I proceeded to file for unemployment, which was only a portion of what I had been making monthly. My days consisted of prayer and applying for jobs.

One of the things I was thankful for during this time was seeing how much my family and friends truly cared for me. Before my job ended, I received cards and even after, constant encouragement through texts, messages and phone calls. The fact of the matter though was that unemployment was hard and as the days went by, I was becoming stressed with how I was going to pay my bills. The favor of God saved me when I was just about to really freak out!
I'm thankful today to say I'm working again. I was unemployed for less than 40 days. God truly worked a miracle for me. I could never thank God enough.
As we enter a new year, please remember to be thankful for even the small things. You never know how your life can change from one day to the next. Thanks for continually reading my blog.
God bless you and stay fabellis!
