Thankful

 

I don't think I even need to list what I'm thankful for this year.  I'm a very lucky (blessed) girl. :)

But I know that there can be two sides to Thanksgiving...you can be incredibly thankful for what you have, but you can also be reminded of what you might not have.  This past Sunday at church, we listened to a sermon on how we can have so many things, but if one thing is terribly wrong in life, you can feel like there is nothing to be thankful for.

I know that feeling.  Last year, I was so blessed to have an amazing husband, wonderful job, great family...but the one thing I wanted more than anything else in this world was missing.  It was the most selfish, empty feeling I have ever felt in my life.

So instead of just listing everything I'm thankful for this year, I wanted to let each one of you that find yourself in this position (whether it's because of a baby or something else) know that you've been in my thoughts all day.  I know what a difficult time of the year this can be.  Just know that your day of true Thanksgiving is coming...and I'm praying for that to be very soon for each one of you tonight.
