Okay so it's not quite Thursday but it seemed like a good title.

My husband installed cable at one of his old buddy's apt today and when he came home he told me how much we have to be thankful for. His friend was jobless and a bit lonely. It kind of bummed DH out. I might whine alot but I really do have it good. A loving (and handsome) husband, a house and a baby on the way. We have our health, decent jobs and supportive families. It almost seems too good to be true.

What are you thankful for?

Today I am super thankful for the kindness of an internet stranger. I haven't bought anything for baby yet and saw that this lady had posted a large lot of a particular WAHM brand of diapers that I like. I saw them over a week ago and thought, hmm that's a good price but I don't have the money to buy just yet. Well today she bumped her post and asked for final offers before she took them to Goodwill. She had 11 diapers and was asking $100ppd OBO for the lot (these diapers retail at over $20 new so it was a steal even at that). So I decided to offer her $45 for 5 of them. She accepted my offer and then said if I really liked them that I could just have the rest since she was not trying to make money off of them and was trying to get her drawers emptied. So I scored 11 beautiful newborn cloth diapers for only $45ppd. I know exactly what I will do with them when we are done with them. They will be paid forward to lots of cute little baby booties. I feel blessed!

Today I am thankful for the Rx my doc gave me for headaches because this sucker has been keeping me awake since 4am. I have drank water and no luck so I am finally going to give in a take one - the fluorescent lights in my office were killing me, so now I'm sitting in the dark lol.
To dive in a little deeper, I would guess I am most thankful for my husband today. He is truly a good man (and good looking!) and I am blessed to know that he will be the father of my children. We have worked very hard to get back to a good place in our marriage, and today I can say I am even thankful for the HORRID times we have endured because it has brought us closer than ever before and completely recommitted to our marriage. More specifically, I am thankful that we reached that milestone BEFORE getting pregnant because the added pressure could have been detrimental to our progress.
I love love

I've been thankful for many small things since a lot of bad things have happened recently.

I'm thankful for snuggles from my kids. Everything is fixed when they just "mommy mommy mommy" and curl up in my arms

Today I am thankful that I finally got rid of that bad tooth. LOL It was stubborn and he showed it to me after he pulled it and that thing was HUGE!

I am also thankful that my mom has seen the light and stopped with her meanness. I think it mainly because she is dealing with my stepfather who was just diagnosed with cancer. Life is short and some things are just not worth the fuss.

My baby boy!

Today I am thankful that all of my kiddos are healthy! It seemed like we were battling sickness forever! And I felt the baby move this morning (first time I've felt definite movement this pregnancy), so thankful for that as well!

I'm thankful that I'm healthy, I have healthy kids, a roof over my head, my DH has a stable income and that we have great health insurance. God is good!

I am so thankful for my husband. He is my partner, my equal, a fantastic father, and the one who calms me when I get stressed. After my first marriage, I didn't think it was possible that there was someone as wonderful as what I found.
