There are so many things to be thankful for this year that I can’t even begin to write them all down. But one thing I am thankful for is the hard year I had. As much as stinks I am so thankful for it.
This time last year I was celebrating Hannahs first thanksgiving having zero idea that this year would be full of trials and tears. But I am so thankful for all I’ve been through. We have a blessings jar on top of our hutch ( I’ll have a separate post for that later) and today I randomly dumped it out to count all the blessings we’ve had this year. Let me just say there were a lot! I forgot I wrote all about Presley and put that in the jar. The different heartbeat days and even the day Pres was born into heaven. I don’t remember writing them but I am so glad I did. I am so thankful that I was able to carry that very special gift for as long as I did. I’m thankful that Presley will never feel pain or sadness. I’m thankful that when he first opened his eyes the first face he saw was God’s. I am so thankful God kept me safe through the whole process and that he gave me the strength to get through it. I’m glad that God makes beauty rise from the Ashes and I’m hoping he does the same for me. I’m thankful that all the times I was on my knees crying he was right there with me upset for his child hurting. I’m thankful for an amazing support system. I’m thankful that I have two children waiting for me in heaven. I’m thankful that this is my life and the struggles are part of my testimony. And of course I’m thankful for you. Whoever you are, wherever you are you’ve taken the time out to read about Presley and Sage over these last few months and I’m so thankful for that. So thank you! Other than the usual, health, clothes, shelter what is something YOU are thankful for this year?
