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!
