I'm remembering today to be grateful for all the blessings in my life. Traffic was just awful this morning, and people seem to be ruder than ever this year. I'm trying my best to smile through it and remember my happiness doesn't depend on them but on me. I'm making it a goal to not get irritated by Holiday craziness this year my mother did a great job of spreading Christmas Cheer when I was younger I remember being in awe of her and her ability to let little things roll off her back, I learned from her that Christmas craziness wasn't a reason to let my spirits die and I hope I teach the same lesson to our sweet girl :)
I have so much to be thankful for this year:
Wonderful doctors who've helped give my mom another year of Holiday celebrations with us.
Family who although drive me crazy are mine and I wouldn't trade them for anything.
Mr. A my wonderful thoughtful caring husband who daily I look at and wonder how I got so lucky. I cannot wait to see him become a daddy :)
Amazing people I'm blessed to call friends
a church home where we are not judged for who we are but accepted: broken, bruised, tattered, and torn though we may be. It is amazing to know that no matter what struggles we face the bonds we've created in our church home will be there to support us through it.
a home of our own to spend the Holidays in this year and looking forward to many years to come of watching our sweet baby girl grow up in that home
my relationship with Christ and being secure in the knowledge that I am His child and no one can take that away from me
the sweet baby girl growing inside me who daily reminds me with her playful kicks, and sometimes crazy dance parties, that I am not alone and no longer am I just a woman contemplating my future, but I'm a momma with the chance to leave a legacy by being the Light to my baby girl and teaching her about our Heavenly Father who already loves her so much so that she may also become Light to a broken world.
My little piece of the internet in which I'm free to write my thoughts however often or sporadically I choose it's my place, my private little oasis where I can be alone with my thoughts and whatever comes to my head is what usually goes on the screen :) the wonderful relationships I've formed with so many other bloggers is an added bonus :)
There are so many more things I have to be grateful for but these are just a few. My prayer for myself as well as all of you reading is that you will remember your own gratefulness list when your in the midst of Holiday chaos and it will make you smile regardless of how many times you just got cut off in traffic or how long of a line you have to stand in to get those Holiday purchases made.
