Well hello there my friends! First off, I want to send a huge THANK YOU to all of you that gave suggestions and ideas yesterday for games, drinks, and food ideas for my sister's bachelorette this weekend! I am not kidding you when I say you made my life 100 times easier!! I cannot thank y'all enough! I think I now have a game plan for the night...and it's going to be a blast (if I do say so myself!)
Now...to turn the page and focus on the topic for today's post: Being Grateful. I had a whole other post ready for today, but when I read Brin's post over at Bold Butter Baby, something just hit me...and I sat down to just pour out my heart on here this morning.
So much of my life lately has been focused on one thing: having another baby. It has literally consumed my life and it is by far the most stressful and physically exhausting thing I have ever gone through. And, when I finally took a step back, relaxed and examined my life this past week while on vacation, I realized I just need to let go. I need to stop obsessing over every month. I need to relax and focus on the most important things in my life. The people in my life that I make me who I am.
My two boys. My husband and my son. They are here right now. They love me more than I ever could ask for and I am truly blessed to call them mine. Together we are a family and that is all I could ever want. Would I like another child? Of course. But what I do have is more important than anything else.
I have a loving husband who works extra hard to provide for our family. It's because of his determination and work ethic that I am able to stay home and care for our son everyday and to take care of all of the household responsibilities. He gives me a kiss and tells me to have a great day every morning before he leaves for work at 6:30 in the morning. And as soon as he walks through the door (sometimes as late as 8:30 at night) the first thing he does is give me a kiss and hug and tells me that he loves me. He thanks me regularly for all that I do for the family and supports me in all of my decisions. I couldn't ask for anything more. He was my first love (at the ripe old age of 15) and my only love. I can't imagine my life without him. So for him, I am grateful.
What are you grateful for?
Until next time...
