I wanted to wish every one a Happy Thanksgiving now before I forgot. I also wanted to share my Thanks with you ladies this year since you won't be around the table to hear what I have to say.
I give Thanks this year to my wonderful husband, for being the best, most understanding, reliable person in my life. I give Thanks to my girls for watching over me and protecting me this past year. If my girls weren't watching over me, I don't know where I would be now. I love you girls and miss you terribly. I want to give Thanks to my JM mommies for being there for me no matter what. I don't have friends like you girls and if it weren't for all of you, I don't know what would have happened to me through my grieving process. No matter what I had to say, no matter what words I put it in, You all understood and gave wonderful advice when needed and knowing that I can count on you girls means more to me than anything. Finally, I give thanks for all the wonderful things I have in my life, my house, my dogs, my cats, my friends, and of course, My Family.
I am thankful for my amazing husband who gently leads me to be better than I think I can be. He lets me be who I need to be but makes me a better person through his loving guidance. I am thankful for my smart, beautiful, full of love and laughter daughter who reminds me daily of the amazing things the world has to offer. I am thankful for the 26 short weeks I had with my son. He made me a better person and made me realize all that I do have to be thankful for. I am thankful for a God who loves me and takes care of me and my family. I am thankful for wonderful parents and sisters and wonderful in-laws. I am thankful that my husband works so hard to provide us with our needs (and wants ) and allow me to stay home to be the kind of mom that I want to be but that he is also a wonderful daddy who loves spending quality time with his daughter.
Steph, I hope you don't mind that I hi-jack this thread and add to this beautiful sentiment you started
Here goes ...
First and foremost, I am thankful for the beautiful Moms on JM who have provided endless and selfless support to me, particularly this Stillbirth board. Your thoughts, well-wishes, support, and encouraging words have been (and continue to be) priceless beyond measure and I am honored to be amongst the strongest group of women I will ever meet.
I am thankful for the man who I am lucky enough to spend the rest of my life with. He is a patient and supportive husband as well as a loving and attentive Daddy.
I am thankful for my beautiful Champ-of-a-daughter Julia, who teaches me more and more about myself and the beauty and innocence of the world around me. I am honored to be called her Mama.
I am thankful for the time I got to spend with her twin brother Noah. As short as the time was, the few months together was priceless. In his death, I have found strength, courage, humility, and hope within myself that I never knew existed.
I am thankful for the miracle / rainbow baby I carry with me wherever I go. She is here for a reason, and I truly believe that Noah had a hand in sending us this beautiful angel as an addition to our family. We are so excited and cannot wait to meet her!
I am thankful for old friends and family back home in CT as well as new friends that we've made in TX. Each of them has played a very important part in shaping my life and making me who I am today.
And last but my no means least, I am thankful for the roof over my head, the spare change in my pocket, having a job to gripe about, having a meal on the kitchen table, and for knowing that as long as I wake up above the dirt each morning as opposed to below it, it's going to be a good day.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving, everyone
Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!
I'm Barb, Mom to Angel on Earth Julia Rose (7*22*08), her twin brother Angel in Heaven Noah (7*22*08), and rainbow baby Sydney Noelle (12*4*09).
*a special 'thank you' to all the blinkie creators for their talents*
I've already celebrated Thanksgiving in October (since I'm Canadian), but I that doesn't mean I still can't be thankful!
I am SO thankful and grateful for Katrina and Sweet Pea. My life has unfortunately changed drastically since losing Katrina, but I honestly couldn't imagine my life without having met her, kissing her, and seeing her beautiful little face. Sweet Pea has brought the joy back into my life and although there will always be a void there without Katrina, I am just SO incredibly grateful to be pregnant with a healthy, living baby and I know Sweet Pea is a gift from Katrina which means I can finally smile again!!!!
I am also SO thankful for my dear Jonny. He is the most amazing husband anyone could ever ask for and I am so very grateful for him He has always, without a doubt, been there for me when I need him and I only hope I have been there for him as well. I know Jon will be the most amazing father in the world and I am so grateful that our children have him as their daddy!
I am also very thankful for my wonderful family (parents, sister, nieces), my doggie, Jon's family, and our friends. We may have our typical family issues, but I seriously couldn't have asked for a better family!
And also, I am very thankful for my health, job, house, food, clothes. It may sound cliche, but it really is true. I may complain about my job like all the time, but I am so thankful to just have a job.
And of course I am thankful for you JM girls. You've seriously helped me through some of my worst times after losing Katrina.
