Ten Things Tuesday 7/23

2500 Comments 500 Love Its First Answer First Anniversary
edited July 2018 in Trying to Get Pregnant
A friend of mine challenged me to write a list every morning of the things I am grateful for. I only did it a couple of days in a row, but I noticed something. When I write about what I'm grateful for, my perspective shifts. So let's hear your list!

People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

How I feel all of the time.

  • 1. MH who DTD even though it was humid yesterday.
    2. My dog who was such a good girl yesterday and today.
    3. MH's aunt who told me that I am beautiful and voluptuous as all the ladies of the lane agree.
    4. The water cooler, especially today.
    5. Librivox keeping me connected with Anne Shirley.
    6. My calm office
    7. The gorgeous wool that arrived so I can finally start knitting something for myself.
    8. Living by the ocean despite not making a good deal of money. Makes summers awesome.

  • @suzycupcake ; Thank you for this.
    @meri-mac I bet it's so nice to live by the ocean! We're making a trip to a beach next month and I can't wait! 

    1. My health. Even though sometimes I feel like my body is letting me down by not conceiving, I'm thankful to be healthy overall. 
    2. My DH who has endured 3 rounds of mood swinging clomid.
    3. Home. We traveled this weekend and stayed with a friend and it's just so nice to be back in our own home. 
    4. My cat. I just love him to pieces!
    5. Everyone here who always provides me with encouragement.
    6. Home decor items. I just love decorating our new house!
    7. Fun weekend plans ahead. Looking forward to seeing one of my favorite local bands this Friday.
    8. My church. I go to a non-denominational, very laid back church where I can always relate to the sermon and there's never any judgement. 
    9. Books. Currently reading Harry Potter and it's such a nice escape. 
    10. Pinterest. I have so many Pinterest boards! I think I'm addicted.
