With Thanksgiving right around the corner I thought that I would write about some of the things in my life that I am thankful for.
I am so grateful for my Eternal family and for all that they teach me.
I am thankful that doctors are not always right and for the perseverance of one little boy that over comes pain every day with a smile!
I am so thankful each time I get to see what an amazing love and friendship Regan has for her big brother as she cares for him.
I am thankful each time we have a chance to give back after all that we have received from so many amazing charities and organizations!
I am thankful for good days of just playing and doing nothing!
I am thankful to "just" be a mom. In a world where women feel that it is degrading or not enough to just be a mother. I take great satisfaction in my chaotic crazy days filled with paint, diapers, baby food, play dates, and the constant "why?" I am grateful that I can fight for a child that does not have a voice and make sure that his needs are met. At the end of the day when I collapse on my sofa and stare at the pile of laundry sitting next to me and look at my house that I have to put back together only to get torn apart again in the morning.I am grateful that I didn't miss a moment of it!
I thankful for my Faith. It is my faith that gets me through the day. It is the knowledge that we are an eternal family and even though Collin is living with this awful life threatening illness and might be taken sooner than I would like... it is not the end. I am thankful that in my hardest, scariest, and weakest times I can turn to my savior and be lifted up.
I am thankful for family. Jason and I both have amazing families that support us so much!!
I am thankful for all of my wonderful friends that lift me up and support me when they know that I am weak. I am thankful for those of you that take Regan when you know that I have gone days with out sleep because of Collin, or when I have to take him to the doctor, etc.
I am thankful for good comic relief! We love the tv show The Office in this house!!
Last but certainly not least I am thankful for my husband and best friend. He is such a good Dad and friend!! With out getting to mushy I will just put it this way. He does a TON to make sure that I can stay home. He's our hero!
