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.
