November feels like a good month to be thankful. A month to look at everything I have and forget about the things I want. That being said, I’m going to attempt a series this month. 30 Days of Thanks. Every day, I’m going to blog about one thing I’m thankful for. Some days might be serious, others may be silly, but at the end of the month, I’ll have reminded myself of 30 things I am so grateful for. Whose going to join me?
Disclaimer: I’m a busy lady. I am aiming to post something new every day, but we all know that will most likely be derailed at some point or another. So if I miss a day or two here or there, hang with me… I’ll make up for it.
DAY ONE: I’m thankful for our healthy reproduction.
Some of you know it took us about 6 months of trying to get pregnant. I know heartache at the end of the month. I know jealousy when your friends announce their pregnant. I know what it feels like to get my hopes up only to find disappointment again. But I also know what it feels like when my unborn son is stretching. I know what it feels like when he kicks my ribs or sits on my bladder. I know what it feels like to see a positive sign on the stick, hear a heartbeat through the doppler, to see a little head sucking on an even littler thumb in the ultrasound. I’m so thankful we were able to create this little human life.
For those of you who have experienced the amazing emotions of being pregnant, I hope you can remember just how thankful you are for that. And for those of you who are still waiting for your little one, don’t worry. You’ll get your baby. Soon enough, one way or another, you’ll get your baby. And no other baby will matter.
PS Thank you Danielle for the sweet idea! You’re an inspiration. XO
