I am thankful

This thanksgiving 2009 I am thankful for so many things...

I am thankful for my ever loving husband who stands by me, supports me, would do anything for me & loves me for me. He's not perfect but he is a good man, a good husband & a good father. I am very blessed.

I am thankful for my mom who comes to the rescue when I get overloaded. While she can't often be with us, I know she thinks of us and is always praying for us. I am ever grateful for her constant prayers.

I am thankful for the family & friends who have helped & supportes us in so many different ways these last few difficult years. With open ears, helping hands & many, many other ways... I can never tell each of them just how much they have touched us, I& I could never repay them for their love & support.

I am thankful for my baby. My baby is just a few weeks away from his third birthday. While I am happy he is growing & healthy my heart is sad. age 2 is still a baby to me...age 3 is entering childhood with full force. I want to stop time for just a little while longer....i want a redo. I want to hold him & not let go for the next 2 weeks.

This year I am thankful for perspective. I've had a rough couple of years & serious bouts of major depression that anyone reading has no idea how badly I suffered.

I am thankful for my health that I have managed to take control of

This year I am truly thankful in my heart. I know I am blessed. I praise God for these blessings & that I can finally see just how truly lucky I am.

Happy Thankgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I enjoyed reading this post.

I battle off and on with depression too. Hasn't been bad since '99, until now, after Jesse. It's pretty rough right now. Just wanted to let you know that I know how it feels and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I don't know if I ever commented on any of this - but I love how you share honestly about what is going on in your life. It's hard being a mom sometimes (and a person in general, ha!), and I'm sure that when real depression is involved...it's suffocating. You seem like such a great mom, though, and your little guy is terribly lucky. I'm proud of you for taking charge of your health and counting your blessings. And I totally know what you mean - my eyes fill with tears just thinking about my kids being 9, 4, and 2...I want a redo, too!!! :)
