What a great week I've had. Work has been busy but everything has gone smoothly. Everyone seems to be a little more friendlier(spelled right??)....always a good thing. The turkey is defrosting in the fridge and I am so ready for some pumpkin pie with a huge dollop of cool whip.

I have so much to be Thankful for this year. Just to be alive and well is enough. To have a home and share it with my guys. Thankful I got to spend a couple of months with my good friend. Thankful to have the most wonderful father who is also my bestest friend in the whole world. I'm so grateful for everything I've been blessed with. Even though there are times when I'm at a low, I'm still grateful for those experiences. I've learned that that is what makes me a stronger, wiser more patient person.

Even the whole baby thing.....I feel that is the only thing missing from my life. That little thing that, I feel, could make my life complete. This sounds weird, especially to those who are going through the same, but I also feel grateful for this experience of trying and being hopeful and patient and trusting that whatever happens, happens. I am grateful for this time my husband and I have shared together, it's made our marriage so much stronger. And as much as we want children, we are enjoying this freedom we have now and are taking full advantage of it. A very wise woman told me this when I was at a very depressing point in my life and it changed my whole perspective. She said to stop this, to enjoy this time with your husband and to take advantage of the things that aren't as easy to do with children. Once you stop this depression and constant wonder of will it ever happen, it will happen. I trust God, more than I trust anyone in this world. I know he has a plan for me. I am most grateful for my faith in him and what he has done for me.

I'm going to end it that folks. Please don't pity me...that was not my intention. I wouldn't mind a few prayers though :) I am happy and thankful and I wish you all a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday.

Tina, I love your mosaic!
And about "the baby thing" I know all about it. Although I have a wonderful daughter, me and my new husband cannot get children together. It is a huge sorrow that I don´t think anyone else can understand. I wish you all the luck!

No pity from me, Tina. I went through the same thing you are. Not easy, I know. But, like I'm sure everyone's told you, the second you stop trying, BAM! It's there. Happened to me twice...
Do enjoy your time alone together :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
