Thankful

I'm so thankful for my sweet and loving husband. He loves me for me! He has been my strength and picked me up when I felt like I couldn't go forward anymore. He's my life, my world! My sunshine on a cloudy day! I would be completely lost without him. His laughter is contagious and makes every day with smiling!
 
I am beyond thankful for our family. My mom, dad, step mom, brother, all my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and in laws...together Zach and I have quite a large family. I'm blessed to say we are close to everyone. God has truly blessed us with family who have been by our sides through thick and thin!!
 
My sweet friends make me count my blessings everyday. I do not know what I would do without them! I have several, and several that I have met online and have been honored to become close to. My friends ARE the BEST! While going through infertility or treatments, even the rough patches of failed IVF's and miscarriages our sweet friends always always knew a way to put a smile on our face...when Zach and I were drowning in tears they were always there to save us. I am beyond grateful and thankful for the amazing friends I have!
 
I'm thankful for infertility. I know, what a strange thing to be thankful for considering it's brought so much heartache into our lives. We haven't know anything but struggling with infertility since we got married, it's all we know. It could have broke us or built us; and I'm so honored to say it built us. We are both two completely different people because of this. Infertility taught us how to lean on God 110%. It taught us about Faith and Patience. It taught us about each others weaknesses and strengths. It taught us how to never give up!! It hasn't always been peachy, but it was/is our life...it will always be apart of our life...almost 7 years of trying to conceive. It doesn't define us, but it's defiantly built us!
 
So thankful for our merciful and glorious GOD! A God who is SO Big! A God who never leaves your side...a God who even when things seem to be falling apart around you always finds a way to show you that everything will be ok. So thankful for being brought up in a Christian family.
 
So thankful that after almost 7 years I can say I'M PREGNANT. I haven't had the easiest pregnancy...I've determined I love pregnancy but pregnancy doesn't love me :) It's been quite the journey, but we MADE IT! So thankful for this little bean! My sweet bean has no idea just how loved it already is, my heart swells when I think of being able to hold him/her in a short 5 months...I will finally get to see my husband be a father. My parents be grandparents. This bean is our life, we have waited so long for this. I am so thankful for this bean, stay strong bean...your mommy and daddy love you more than anything in the world!
 
 
Life doesn't always go the way you think it will, were proof of that. But I'm thankful for the ride God took us on, the people He has placed in my life and the miracle He has blessed us with!
 
God Bless you all! Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

What a wonderful post on THANKSGIVING! I agree with you 100%, my husband and I struggled with infertility and a failed IVF before GOD blessed us with a miracle baby girl! This Thanksgiving she is 5 months old and we can't express enough how truly thankful we are! I've followed your blog for a few years now and am so happy for you! I never dreamed I could love this much!! Congratulations and get ready for the time of your life!!
