Grateful

Something has changed inside of me over the past few months. I look at my life and see a wonderful husband who takes me for I am, allows me to be me, and accepts my shortcomings on a regular basis. A man who loves me unconditionally as I love him. A man who makes me laugh and shares my dreams. I live in a nice house with nice things, never worrying about money, having enough that we can give to others and that makes me feel good. I have a wonderful group of friends who love me and teach me about life; I have parents who are healthy and happy, a brother who is on his way to becoming a doctor and I couldn’t be more proud of. I have my health. I have a job that I enjoy (most days) and a partner at work who makes it all worthwhile. I live in a place that is beautiful, surrounded by mountains and the sea. And most of all, truly madly deeply – I have a Son. A wonderful, funny, handsome, charismatic, smart, gentle boy who I can call my own. A boy to come home to every day, who runs to the door to wrap his arms around me when I come home. He jumps on me until I almost fall over, “Mama!” he says. A boy who I kiss goodnight and cuddle in my arms every single day. A boy who I play with, and laugh with, and love with every ounce of my soul.

Sure, I still yearn for another child. I still ache for another baby in my arms. But looking at what I do have already, who could ask for more?

    Your post just about made me cry. We always look at what we DONT have as opposed to what we do. You are truly blessed!

    It’s easy to focus on what we don’t have sometimes. Your post definitely inspired me to try to look at the good. 🙂
