Our Five Ring Circus: Thankful

Wednesday, November 27, 2013


I didn't jump on the 30 days of Thankfulness bandwagon this year.  I am thankful.  I'm thankful every single day for all the gifts I have been given.

My list is the same every single year...I'm thankful for my wonderful husband who is my best friend, my beautiful children that bring joy to my everyday, my amazing parents who have always been there for me, my huge and wonderful family, my incredible friends, the warm home that we live in, our good health, two cars to get us where we need to go, all the clothing that we need, a steady income, entertainment, and an abundance of food.  Even though the stress of everyday life can bring us down, we are so lucky and so blessed.

This year, there is one more thing on my Thankful list.

My sweet, beautiful boy.

I am so thankful.

I am thankful that I was chosen to be his mother.  I am thankful that he made my family grow more than I ever imagined. I am thankful for the challenge.  I am thankful for being able to become a better human being.  I am thankful for the amazing people that came into our lives through his birth diagnosis. I am thankful that he is healthy.

Most of all, I am thankful that I was chosen to love him.

This Thanksgiving I'm even more blessed than I was last year.  I will be counting my numerous blessings and thanking God for adding Liam to that list!
