I feel a bit delinquent because I didn’t put out a post yesterday about all the things I’m grateful for. Absolutely, there are so many things to be thankful for and my list, I’m sure, is very similar to yours.
Everyday for me is Thanksgiving. It’s the first thing I do after I turn off my alarm. I pickup my iPhone, head to the bathroom, scroll through my prayer apps, and give thanks. I praise God most of all for the continued health of the little tyke in my tummy. The 14 week ultrasound from last week captured the baby with his mouth wide open, then shut, his tummy fully extended, then not, and his right hand raised, then down. Oh, the pictures give me immense joy. I just want to cry every time I look at them.
Even though I have been blogging recently about my baby bliss, for those of you who struggle with infertility and loss, I want you to know that I hold you close to my heart. I am extremely sensitive to my own losses and for me, the miscarriages aren’t just bad memories that I’ll eventually forget about over time. I wear two rose gold pinky rings everyday alongside my wedding band as a reminder that they are part of my life story.
I thank all of you for accompanying me on this journey. My heart is full of love and friendship. Blowing virtual kisses to each of you today.
