Thankful

When going through infertility, it can get easy to focus on what you don't have. On this one, beautiful thing that you know what change and enrich your life, but is out of your reach. For now.

So instead, I try to focus on the tens of thousands of blessings I do have. And say thank you--for the friends who always make me laugh and lift me up when I'm upset, the warm bed waiting for me at the end of a long day (which is from Ikea and breaks every other day, but who's counting:) ha!), my calm and happy scrapbook room.

For the family that raised me since I was little (and I was not that easy to deal with, from what I gather) to the new family that's welcomed me in since I got married. For my grandparents living nearby, so I get to see them all the time. For all my friends who have welcomed little ones this past week, healthy babies who I know will grow into special people.

For the man who has made me the happiest woman of all. And for G-d, from whom all blessings flow.

And last but not least, to you guys: Your comments have made me laugh, made me cry (in a good way), and made me think. I write this blog because I love getting to know you all. So thanks for coming by and sharing a bit of yourself here:)

And because no post is complete without a picture...

(Me at the awesome hotel on our last vacay. I realize you can't see my face, but I like the hair, so in it goes!)

And before I go, in case you've been eyeing some of those Ella e-books, Ella is having a huge Thanksgiving sale today! See details on the Ella blog! Also, don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY in the post below (I'll choose a winner Sunday)!

What are YOU thankful for today? Alternatively, what deals are YOU snapping up?
