My life story has the best characters in it.

I thought today was going to be kind of a crappy day, but life had other plans for me, so instead of being bitter, I am thankful

Thankful for my mother on mother's day for giving me life.

Thankful for my wonderful husband who woke up super early before I got out of bed and had a "happy mother's day" basket of candy and a balloon waiting for me, and told me it was from our dog Harley, and that Harley loved his mommy.

I'm thankful for being able to spend time with my family today.

I'm thankful for a letter my father and mother wrote to me for today about how they overcame their infertility issues, and about how God answered their prayers...and I'm thankful for a small but very touching and powerful gift my father gave me that he had been carrying around in his wallet for the past 30 years...passing it down to me.

I thought I would be sad, but today I am happy.
I thought I would be angry, but today was filled with laughter.
I thought today would make me feel like the biggest failure as a woman...
...but instead I feel hopeful.

...yes...today I am thankful



Happy mothers day.

I thought Mothers Day would be hard for me, but it really wasn't, so I know what you mean. It's an amazing blessing to have so much in our lives even though we don't have babies yet.
