It is a difficult and heartbreaking time for us, made sweeter by the love of so many around us.
So, in honor of a belated Theme Thursday with Clan Donaldson and making it quick with Conversion Diary, here are 7 dreams I'm grateful for this Christmas:
|Hubby's graduation in 2010|
This guy. I'm grateful for him. When I was young, I knew I wanted to be married and raise a family, I just had no idea that I would be so very blessed to spend my life with a man as caring, thoughtful and selfless as this guy.
This girl. She made me a mom and she's one of the coolest kids I know. I've had friends tell me she's an advertisement for having kids, which is probably the best compliment I've ever gotten.
This house. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. It is filled with love and laughter.
This job. I work from home, sometimes I work as a trainer in a building, but most of the time, I'm with my kids, working around their schedule. Sometimes I don't work at all, some times I work up to 30 hours in a week. I get a little money to fix up our house and lots of time with our kids. So very very blessed.
This girl. This is a dream I thought for six years of secondary infertility wouldn't come true. Her middle name is Hope to remind me that God is bigger than my doubt.
This relationship. Never has a little sister been more treasured. In her earliest moments, Little Bean prayed for the safety of Sweet Pea while I was undergoing hormone shots to maintain my new pregnancy/baby's life.
The last 2 years, 5 months and 29 days with this girl. Sometimes, the dream ends and you have to wake up, but I'll never stop being grateful for this dream.
