Thankful Thursday: Promises

I haven't written a "Thankful Thursday" post in awhile and today I realized I'm thankful for promises.

My history is, as I'm sure everyone's is, littered with broken promises. Some that caused tears, some that caused scars, and still others that resulted in a complete loss of trust.

The thing with broken promises, though, is they make the promises that are kept that much sweeter.

Today, I'm thankful that my friend who said she'd always be there for me when we were eleven is still one of the few people I talk to on a regular basis.

I'm thankful my husband has truly stood by me in sickness and health, richer and poorer, good times and bad, especially the sick/poor/bad.

I'm thankful that the promise I most doubted, the one that people I trust most uttered one after another, seems to be coming to fruition. I'm going to be okay.

This is a good post, especially while so many people I know these days want to throw in the towel during the "sick/worse" times. I like your attitude. Also, I tagged you in this post. :) http://marinewifeunplugged.blogspot.com/2012/01/q-and.html

Promises that are kept are definitely one of the best things to be thankful for. Like you said, it seems so many folks break their promises instead of keep them, but that does make the kept promises all that much sweeter.
