Giving Thanks

I really do have so much to be thankful for. I often time's tend to focus on what I don't have. In reality, I am beyond blessed.

I may not own a house, or live in one for that matter, but I have everything I could need and want in our little apartment.

While we aren't rolling in $$$$, we are able to pay our bills every month, have food on our plates and spend a few bucks at Target! My husband works really hard to provide for us, and for that I am so thankful.

I'm not pregnant like I would love to be, but I get to nanny for the most adorable twins in the whole world. They make me smile each day, and working for them allows us to be in a better position financially to have kids of our own.

While I would love to move to Texas and buy a beautiful house, by staying here in California I am able to get in my car and drive 30 minutes up the freeway and spend time with my family.

I am so very thankful for all that God has blessed me with. This past year has been wonderful and full of new experience. I may not have all that I "wanted" this past year, but I'm realizing I have exactly what I need. And as I am being reminded of daily, God's plan for me is far better than any plan I create.

If You Have Nothing Nice to Say...

I'm still saying it!

If I read one more blog that says "we weren't even trying to get pregnant, it just happened" I might throw my laptop/rip my hair out/scream at the top of my lungs.

I know, I'm bitter. Very bitter. I shouldn't be, but I am. If this experience has taught me anything it's that you never know how long or hard others have struggled to have a child. I understand that people don't mean their statements to rub it in, but stop and think that maybe it's not that easy for everyone else. We haven't even been trying *that* long. I can't imagine couples who try for years and years only to never get pregnant.

I'm just tired of seeing 17 year old's pregnant and people who "accidentally" got pregnant, and "we weren't even trying, it just happened". Good for you. I wish it could "just happen" for me too.
