I'm thankful for....

The Waffle House

I'm thankful that my husband has a job. And not only that, a job that allows me to stay home with my baby girl. Yes, he may work every holiday, every weekend, and 75+ hours a week, but it's a job he loves and it allows us to live comfy. Even with the economy in the gutter and so many people struggling right now, the waffle is still taking care of us.

My Friends
(I don't have a picture of all of us)

I have many friends, but I'm talking about three in particular, Amy, Nicole, & Sheena. Honestly, I've never had many "girl" friends that I've been really close to. I've known these girls for years now, but this year we've grown much closer. I don't know what I would do without the three of them. They make me laugh till I cry and make me laugh when all I wanna do is cry. I cherish our time together, whether be at playgroup, a couples night, or girls night. If it wasn't for them these past few months, I would be in the nut house by now.

Our Family

When they rolled me out from my c-section, I expected to see them all there because I knew they wanted to meet Olivia. What I didn't expect, was to see them all standing there when I was rolled out of my second surgery. I know every year I say I'm thankful for my family, but this year it has a whole new meaning. Their excitement for Olivia has overwhelmed me and their support this past year has been so much needed. I love them all and thankful that we have family who loves us.

My Two Moms

Yes, this is a horrible picture of me, but this is the only picture of the two of them together. Plus, this picture describes what I'm thankful for. This picture was taken after my c-section and I had just been brought back to my room. While everyone else was oohhing and awwing over Olivia, they were checking on me. These two were the ones who put their lives on hold and took care of Olivia and I that first month. I could never be able to express how thankful I am for both of them and all their help those first few weeks. I talk to both of them pretty much everyday. I'm sure I probably drive them crazy calling with all my questions and wanting their opinions on everything. Thankfully, they both always answer their phones. Now that I'm a mom, my relationships with them seems so different but, I cherish them both even more now.

Of course, these two....

Words cannot express the joy these two bring to my life everyday. I'm thankful for the two greatest gifts I've ever received, the chance to be this man's wife and this baby girl's mother.
I love them both more than they'll ever know.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
