Be thankful.

Today, I am thankful.
I’m thankful for my wonderful husband. He may be miles away, in a foreign country… but only for now. Someday soon, the love of my life will be back where he belongs: with me. Elliot will know his father's love. Not everyone is so lucky.
I’m also thankful to have this little boy growing inside of me. I feel blessed to be chosen to carry him, and I am proud to be his mother. Some women never know the joy of being pregnant, giving birth, and being a mother.
I’m thankful to be lucky enough to live in the USA, where I am free.
And lastly, I’m thankful for the air that I breathe, and every breath that I take. It’s wonderful to be alive.
The best lesson I ever learned was to count my blessings and not my sorrows.
What are you thankful for?

Oh, by the way: I'm still having contractions. But they aren't coming as often anymore. So I'll take that as a good sign!


  1. I couldn't imagine going through pregnancy, let alone a pregnancy with complications without my husband! you are so brave!

    I'm thankful for my son and that I get to be a mother!

  2. I'm thankful that Elliot is staying put for now and that your contractions have slowed.

    I'm also thankful for my husband, he is my rock. When I feel like I can't take another step, he helps me. I'm also thankful for Bunny, and for the fact that I've made it this far in pregnancy.

    I'm also thankful for the fact that although my mom isn't here with me, she gave me all the tools that I'll need to be a great mom. She passed when I was 12, but she was amazing!

  3. Hi! WE love your blog! We are a company called Padalily, our product is a cushion that comforts mom's sore arms. It wraps around the car seat handle so mom's have an easier time to carry the handle in the bend of their arm. We would love to find out how to do a giveaway or review on your blog. Would you be interested in something like that?
    If so ,please contact

  4. You make me very thankful for having my husband here with me. I can't imagine having to do it alone while pregnant, especially in your case. Brave woman!

  5. I am thankful for all the amazing stories on blogs that I get to read every day.
    There are so many people in this wide world and it is great to get to "know" people from the other side of it.

  6. Living in another country than the man is hard stuff. I totally give you credit. I know how hard it is to go through that. You're a strong woman!!!
