29th Day

I am thankful for the opportunities that my blogging & tweeting have brought me. I could have never imagined that when I started this blog that I would have had the change to write for a magazine & will be writing for a great nonprofit here soon. I am so happy I get to share our story & hopefully help others.

Thankful On This 28th Day

I am thankful for the back surgery I had almost 11 years ago that gave me my life back. I was young when I started having problems & it took me almost 3 years to find a doctor that would finally listen to me. For him, I am also thankful.

Day 11

I am thankful for my job. I am lucky that I have never had to be worried about loosing my job & all the benefits my job provides me with. There are so many that are unable to say this & sometimes even though I get super stressed out by it & pissed off at my the long run, I kinda have it made.

And On The 10th Day, I'm Thankful For

My college education. I was the 1st person in my family to ever graduate from college. I was also very lucky to graduate with NO debt! My parents did whatever it took to get me through school & not have to pay for my education..I am so very thankful for that!!

Day 8

As much as things have been tough between my brother & I lately, due to outside causes...I still love him to death & am so thankful for him.

He is caring, sensitive & always there for me no matter what.

I was never lucky enough to have a relationship with my aunt & uncle & I am so very excited that LP will get to have him as an amazing uncle!!

I'm Thankful For Adoption

I am so glad that this wonderful option is how the DH & I will become a family.

Sunday, November 6, 2011

6th Day of Thankfulness

I have not blogged about this, but the DH & I moved back in August. I am so lucky that we were able to move into my dream house! We live in an amazing school district, so when LP starts school, I know (s)he will be getting an amazing education. The community is so friendly & really community oriented! There is always something going on.

Now, the commute is a bit further to work, but oh well, the trade off is worth it.

On The 5th Day I Am Thankful For

Yep, that is right! I am thankful for Twitter. When I started on Twitter in May of 09, I had no idea how it would change my life. How a social media outlet would bring some of the most amazingly, brave and strong women into my life. I didn't know I could meet some of my best friends on line (I met my husband online, so why not friends?!)

Twitter has been a life saver for me too. The day I found out my DH had azoo I went right to Twitter. The love and support came pouring..or where I felt like the worst person in the world for turning down baby M, they reminded me I was doing what was best for our family.

Sometimes, I can get pissed off at Twitter, it's like any other love hate relationship...but in the long run, I am very lucky for all the good it has brought to my life!

Thankful, Day 4

Today, on our 3.5 year anniversary, I am sooooo very thankful for my husband. This man came into my life when I least expected it & loved me. He loved me flaws & all (and I have a lot) We have been through more in these (4) years of being together than most do in 10 years!! I cannot thank him enough for standing by me, being my best friend, and agreeing to be with me the rest of my life ;-) He also married me a 2nd time (see below)

Day 3

Today I am thankful for my family. I am blessed to still have all 4 of my grandparents & a loving mom, dad & brother. The entire family has been so amazing throughout this infertility/adoption journey. Having a supportive family makes all the difference, but especially when you are dealing with things such as this.

30 Days of Thankfulness

Just gonna spice it up a bit this month ;-) 30 days of what I am thankful for! Sometimes I can be guilty of noticing the bad & what I don't have & I need to focus on the good, as I truly do have a lot to be thankful for.

Today I am thankful for the 3 men in my life (dad, brother, husband-Kiso will have a 'stache at the end of the month too) participating in Movember to help bring awareness to prostate cancer, a cancer both my grandfathers have fought & won against.
