Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I’ll be spending most of the day away from the computer, but I wanted to be cliche and share what I’m thankful for this year. A LOT has happened this year, and I’m just so grateful for everything, both the great and not-so-great!
First of all, I’m so thankful for my little family. Allison has grown so much in these short two years; she’s full of personality and spunk, and she never stops moving. I cannot wait to see how she grows and what she becomes! I’m incredibly lucky to have such a great husband; John works so hard to provide for this family. He leaves early for work, stays late, and still comes home happy to play with Allison and give me a small break. He’s given me the opportunity to stay home and take care of our daughter full-time, and that, in turn, has given me a chance to pour out my heart in the form of this blog, which is now becoming a full-time job and providing an income for us!
In relation to the above, I’m thankful for all of you, my loyal readers. You all are so amazing and open, and so encouraging in my endeavors. Thank you for listening to my ramblings, for encouraging my weight loss, and being so supportive!
Today I’m also thankful for my health. Almost 9 months ago I was monitored for my heart palpitations that suddenly came on and wouldn’t stop, and ever since I started my journey to better health, I haven’t had any! John’s been there to support me in this and has made sure I stick to my plans, and I can’t stop now that I’m so close to my goal!
Recently I’ve been waking up just feeling very appreciative of what I have. We have less than some but more than others, and I’ve been learning to be grateful for everything. Like the fact that starting yesterday, I put Allison in underwear while she was awake and she hasn’t had an accident. That’s huge! I never thought I’d be thankful for using a toilet.
I hope everyone reading enjoys their Thanksgiving day, whether it be big or small; just stop and enjoy what life has for you right now.
