Thankfulness

A few days ago, I wrote a post that was about my bad day. I needed new perspective and I'm so thankful that Jesus has truly given me a new perspective today. On any given day, if someone asked me what some of my biggest blessings are, it wouldn't be hard for me to name off a good list. Sometimes it's hard to just maintain a thankful spirit though when I'm going about my day to day life.

This afternoon, I put Judah down for his nap, did my chores and then I sat down to relax and eat my lunch. I stumbled across a blog that is written by someone who has struggled with infertility for many years. They do not have children but, they so desperately wish to be parents.

My entire life I have dreamed of being a mom. Without a doubt, it's the biggest desire that God has put in my heart. I am so blessed to have a perfectly healthy son who's almost 15 months and to also be 13 weeks pregnant. When we wanted to get pregnant, we got pregnant in ONE month. I could have all the computer viruses in the world, all the chores piling up, my whole life feeling messed up but, the fact that God has allowed me to be a mom is more than enough to be thankful for.

Everyone has different struggles but, when I read about or talk to women who are having trouble getting pregnant, or staying pregnant, it makes my heart ache. All those things make my little troubles seem so small. Thank you Jesus for new perspective!

When Judah wakes up from his nap, I'm not going to be frusterated that he pulls all the clean laundry off the table and onto the floor while I try to fold it. Instead, I'm just going to be thankful that I have him and that he's there to put all my clean clothes on the floor.

  1. So good! Sometimes I have actually caught myself saying "I hate my life" in moments of complete frustration. I don't really hate my life, I can just be a little melodramit;) but still, it comes out of my mouth. I have to remember that since I was little I dreamed of having this life. A husband, lots of kids, being a stay at home mom. Thanks for sharing you're new perspective. I'll remember it next time I'm feeling frustrated.

    And my best friend has been trying for years to get pregnant. My heart completely aches for her:*( Would you join me in praying for her? Her name is Megan and her blog is linked on mine:)
