Nov 29

For any of you who read this post, you may be interested in this update also. Just amazing! And Exciting! And Unbelievable! And, well, you get the point.

I am on my next to last day of finding something to be thankful for. It has been eye opening for me, even when it was difficult to find something of great importance to appreciate. Of course, I am thankful for small things which make my life a little less hectic. I have a love/hate relationship with my alarm clock, but have found it to be a necessary evil; I love hot chocolate when it's chilly outside; I am thankful for spell check (since I am a t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e speller!!!); I can't live without my get the idea, right?

So, I saved one of the most important things until next to last: You, my blogging friends. Blogging was introduced to me impromptu when I felt like my life was spiraling out of control. I had been trying for a baby for over 3 years, and it was my blogging community who came out of the wood work to hold my hand-as virtual as it may have been--while I cried and poured my heart out to people who completely understood all I was going through...the emptiness, the doctor appts, the hormones! You became my allies who marched the front lines of this war on infertility with me. You prayed for me, and I prayed for you. And, now, we share a bond that is as strong as any other.

I am so thankful for your comments and encouragement. I am so thankful for your posts. I am so thankful that I chose to continue blogging on this side of the pain. You and each of your journeys are important to me. I can't really express in words how truly thankful I am to be here blogging, and that through out the entire web, you and I connected by chance (or a google search).

Thank you for everything blogging friends. You are certainly one of my many blessings to be thankful for.
