Thankful

Sometimes life gets in the way of everything.

Sometimes during a crazy day of running errands and dealing with the constant picking up and cleaning up after a toddler, who is on the go go go go all day long can make you forget certain things.

Sometimes life just forces you to forget to be grateful.

Some of us are very lucky when we stop the madness spinning around us and remember how lucky we are.

How grateful we are.

I did that today.

I stopped what I was doing, took as deep of a breath as the Turtle would allow and remembered exactly what I was so lucky.

I have an amazing husband, a beautiful healthy toddler and a growing baby inside of me. We have a roof over our heads, a car to get us places, friends who love us and family constantly surrounding us.

So today I am thankful.

And grateful.

And happy.

Beautiful. I too try and remember how grateful I am to have my family, a roof over our heads, and food on the table. Especially in this current economy. Congrats on your preganancy!
