So, every morning after I've hit the snooze button two (okay five) times I lie in bed and think about all the Reasons why I'm Lucky:
-I have a husband who loves and supports me (even when he thinks I'm certifiably nuts)
-I have three beautiful, smart, healthy children who I adore
-I have an angel boy who watches over me and my family
-I have a comfortable home that keeps me warm and safe
-I have an amazing support system of family and friends
-I have passions that I am able to pursue
-I am able to be a stay-at-home mom
-I have the best Dad, Mom and sisters anyone could ever want
-I have food to eat, clothes to wear, eyes that see and ears that hear
-I've been given an opportunity for growth and learning
It's a weird thing to be thankful for, but truly I am so grateful for Archer and the lessons that he brings me. Yes, it's hard and yes, I would love it if things were different and Archer was a healthy baby. But I've learned that Heavenly Father does as He sees fit and there is a lesson to be learned in all of this. I think that slowly, I'm learning that lesson. Love, patience, understanding, positive thinking, cherishing moments, gratitude, importance of family. So many things I have learned, and I know that there are many more to come.
Tell me, what are you grateful for?
