Mostly Wordless Wednesday: What I'm Thankful For

I know it's a little late but just because Thanksgiving has passed doesn't mean I don't still have plenty to be thankful for. Such as:

A wonderful, loving husband

An amazing family

Incredible In-Laws (yes, I know how VERY lucky I got on this one!)

Fantastic friends from coast... coast.

Constant, unconditional support from all of you

And of course what I am most grateful for, and the picture I have been most asked for these past few weeks...

A cute belly bump, where my sweet baby girl is currently growing and thriving

I am so grateful for everything in my life right now. Even though my infertility will always be part of me and I still face it daily and will have to receive treatment again when we decide to have another child, I know there is a special appreciation of these things I might not have had without my experiences and struggles. I truly feel incredibly fortunate for all of the love in my life. I may never be a millionaire, or set foot on every continent, or be famous and well-known, or be able to say I've lived a pain free life, but I have the things that matter most- and that includes you, so Thank You.

Happiness is in what we have, not what we dream of having...

Your post is so beautiful and so true, its so good to be reminded that what we have is important, and that we should be thankful for everything in our lives!

May your holiday season bring you more and more happiness and joy, and as i have said so many times before... You are always in my prayers, and i pray nothing more for 2011 to overwhelm your heart the way mine has been overwhelmed this year.

What a cute bump you have!

And I completely agree with you: struggling with infertility will only make you appreciate everything even more! I know that once we are blessed with a little one it will be just that much more special because of the struggles it took to get there!

Your little bump is A-DORABLE! Love it! You look so, so happy, Holly. You give me such hope that IVF will be our answer to baby, too. xo
