Day 1: Seven Days of Thankfulness

I decided that I would do 7 days of thankfulness leading up to Thanksgiving next week to appreciate all that I’ve been through and survived in the last year. I am different. Stronger. Happier.

It’s a journey. Some good and some bad, but it could be worse. I am thankful for all that have and have witnessed. I want us to see the good in just living and to be thankful for that. So, won’t you join me? Won’t you write for 7 days things that you are thankful for?

Let’s start:

I’m thankful for motherhood. You may not know my story, but I will keep it brief…Difficult conception. Two rounds of IVF. Sickness and bed rest. But, I prayed. God heard. Munch was born. I am his mother. I am thankful for him. Thankful that he continues to thrive through difficult times. I found out that he made honor roll this week and his ceremony is in a couple of weeks. Even with all that transition at his school, he is putting forth his best effort.

My MunchΒ continues to inspire me each day. To be better. To do more. To give more.

Motherhood. I’m thankful for motherhood because that brought me Munch. There is no greater joy than hearing him say “Mommy, I love you and you’re the best mommy in the world.”

  1. Such a wonderful post! While I was not blessed with a child of my own, I possess a mother’s heart. I think I have a hundred “kids”, many grown up now and having their own kids. I feel very blessed and thankful.

  2. Motherhood was so scary for me- I didn’t have the complications you did , I was blissfully ignorant to the miracle happening in my body. My Bee shook my world upside down. Every tear, every smile has been worth it. She is a true blessing. Motherhood is a blessing ,you are so right.
