What I'm Thankful For

It's November.  November is the month to be thankful.  On Facebook all you see is daily thankful posts.  Now, I'm not committed enough to do a daily post on what I'm thankful for.  I am grateful and thankful every day for various aspects of my life.  I just can't commit to remembering to post them on Facebook every day.

I have much to be thankful for lately.  I'm thankful for our amazing little baby that came into our lives earlier this year and made it that much richer.  I'm thankful for my two older ones that have adjusted and helped in ways I did not think possible before.  I'm thankful for an amazing husband that busts his butt both at work and at home to support our family. I'm incredibly thankful for Blessings in disguise.

This little one put me out of work. Daycare for her full time and for the other two along with commuting costs and work related expenses were close to, if not more than what I would have been bringing home.  Because of that, I have had the opportunity to stay at home with my babies.  We've done things we couldn't do before.  I have been there for them in ways I couldn't when I was working.  We've had more time together.  I'm more relaxed and not rushing to get everything done in the short span between work and bedtime.  I'm enjoying being their mom more than I ever have. For this I am grateful.

It sounds to me like you do have a lot to be thankful for. I wish that I could have stayed home too but it just wasn't feasible. I am still lucky though to have such wonderful kids and very thankful too.

Nothing like a new little baby to bring perspective and more love! Sounds like an amazing year!

Thanks Ladies.

Kat - it wasn't a choice for me. Working would have cost me more than my salary. I worked for years with my older two. I know how tough it is.

MamaKat - Thanks! It has been an amazing year! So thankful!!
