Thankful, Not Bitter

Thank you, my bloggy sisters, for sitting with me as I let out my pain and frustration. I am sad and feel a loss, even though I only knew for a short while I was pregnant.

But. Though in pain (both physically and emotionally) on that Thanksgiving Day, I was, and am, incredibly thankful for what life has given me this year.

-My two beautiful children.
-The joyful and transformative experience of being pregnant, and the safe delivery of my Grace.
-The health and well being of my family.
-My husband's new job, which is fulfilling him professionally, and is supporting us during these difficult financial times.
- A husband who works very hard, and who supports me (financially and emotionally) through my transition to full-time motherhood.
-My two real-life best friends who are REAL friends to me. They have held me up and supported me through so much this year, and celebrated with me too.

...and thankful that I have a stubborn husband who insisted on taking me to the emergency room rather than wait it out. Who knows what would have happened if I had ignored it any longer? I am thankful to be here to be with my family.

I'm glad you are doing as well as possible after such a scary and heartbreaking experience. :(

I think you deserve a break! I'm going to let the fates/gods/God/karma spirits know.

Thanks for your comment on my post -- so reassuring to know I'm not alone. Just catching up on your latest posts and am just so sorry to hear what you've been through -- the experience is so full of sad irony. But your attitude is amazing and I just hope that each moment of joy feels a little longer for you so you can really relish it this holiday and in the new year to come.
