Lesson #15 - There Is ALWAYS Something To Be Thankful For

This week I'm linkin' it up...Supah-style!! Okay...so this year has been a bit of a whirl wind for me. I mean, it isn't often that two people meet, get married and have a baby all within a matter of ten months! Okay, maybe it is more common that I think. In any case, I wanted to take a minute today to list a mere fraction of my list of things I am thankful for.

Well, first and foremost, I am definitely thankful for my family and friends!! Wait, does that count as one or two? I'm counting it as one - get over it. Being married to the most understanding husband a crazy lady could ask for and giving birth to the funniest, happiest baby who will eventually be giving me heartburn...all in the same year...AWESOME!! Having the most supportive parents/grandparent a gray-haired giving daughter/granddaughter needs has made life exciting. Being able to share laughs with the highest quality OCD compulsion-sharing friends an ADHD brain can handle is just the icing on the cake.

Second, I am thankful for the fact that I am employed and still getting a paycheck - given the hard economic times we are in currently. While my boss continues to be unforgiving, I can't help but think of where I'd be without my job. I am willing to put up for the put-downs...for now.

Third, I am thankful that my family and I have these four walls and roof we call home. To me, there a huge difference between owning a house and being able to call it home. Our experiences with and love for each other, have turned a simple townhouse into the place we will raise our daughter (and however many more children we end up having).

Last, but not least, I am thankful that I am healthy and able to move around to do the things I do. For those of you playing along at home, the man recently broke his hand. Seeing his frustration while trying to do things like feed the babe or open a jar. It makes me thankful that I am able to do a little extra to get things done. Lets be honest - if both of us were broken, the babe would be running amok...without even being able to run yet!!

I feel your pain. The hubs sprained his wrist at his alumni baseball game when our bambino was 10 wks old. I had to carry must of our luggage plus our little dude through the airport. No easy feat. Ah ha!

Love this post! There's so many things to be thankful for that we sometimes take it for granted.

Keep up the great post! Btw, just to let you know I stopped by your blog from SITS. :D

Great list you have here! I can't imagine not being able to use my hand. The closest I came was to having bad carpal tunnel in my 3rd trimester with my first son....apparently about 25% get it. It lasted until he was 6 months old!

I just read your comment on my blog. I am so glad my story could help you. It sounds like you have had a hell of a change in the last year yourself, so it wouldn't be a surprise if were struggling a bit as well. Even if they are happy changes, they are still changes and transitions are usually the time when people's emotions can be a bit all over the place.

It sounds like things feeling better lately though, so that's great!

Will be following your blog....love your lessons learned! ;-)
