I can't believe we are here- the week of Thanksgiving. Lately, I have been feeling a little overwhelmed and behind. Behind in cleaning, cooking, TV shows (lol), blogging, everything! We have just been so busy, then on top of everything, we have all been sick so it has been Dr. visit after Dr. visit.
I am looking forward to a slow and SHORT week at work and spending some quality time with my family this week/weekend!
God has been so good to us. So very good! I am so beyond thankful for all of the amazing blessings in my life.
I am extremely grateful for my children. My family is complete and I love it! I am so thankful for my two beautiful kids, thankful to have both a boy and a girl, thankful that they are healthy, thankful that they are happy. Thankful for the science that brought them to us through IVF. Thankful for our careers, which allowed us to pay for that science and not live in a cardboard box. Thankful for my body, for tolerating all of the hormones, shots and manipulation that it had to endure and accepting the beautiful embryos which are now our babies.
I am also so incredibly thankful for my husband. He came into my life at a point when I had given up on love and showed me what it was to stick by someone and love them unconditionally. He is the most amazing father to our children and has a heart of gold. As I go through life and see others and their relationships, I become more and more thankful for my own. When seeing other people's lives, you have to remember you are looking through the snow globe seeing their best picture and not all the in behind the scenes stuff. I know every relationship is different, and to each is own, but I am so grateful to have a husband who so genuinely loves spending time with his kids, who enjoys going to the grocery store as a family, who helps in the kitchen and with baths and every in between.
Family. Oh family. I am so blessed to have my wonderful family close by. To have my mom (Granny) as the hired help and nanny of my children. To have big thanksgivings and Christmas's. Family is such a blessing!
Health. This year my husband and I ran our first half marathon and we are running our 2nd on Thanksgiving morning, I am so incredibly thankful for my health. I have been through my share of health obstacles and to be healthy is a huge blessing, not only for my health, but for the help of my family! Yes, we have had to deal with croup, bronchiolitis and even hair tourniquets, but overall we are so beyond blessed to be living healthily!
These are just a few of the things I am feeling thankful for. What about you?
