I'm thankful for my family, who provide all the love and laughs that one person could possibly stand. I'm thankful for my friends, who put up with my moody days, support me in everything I do in life, and push me to be my best self every day. But most of all, I'm thankful for this little dude here. I'm thankful for the sleepless nights and early mornings...for the hugs, cuddles, and big, sloppy kisses...for the butterflies and heartwarming feeling I get when he flashes me that crooked smile and tells me he loves me...for the uncontrollable laughter we experience when he's trying his best to show me every amazing aspect of his little personality... for the way he looks at me like I'm his hero... and for how exhausted I am at the end of every day because that means I'm trying my hardest to be the mommy he deserves. I've never in my life known a greater love than what I have for him, and I'm truly blessed to have been chosen to be his mommy. 💙
Everyday we have something to be grateful for, but today is the perfect time to stop, remember how blessed you are, and express that gratitude. .
Today and everyday, I’m so thankful for my husband. I’m thankful for my family, and the friends I have that feel like family. I’m thankful for my maker tribe (looking at you, my friend), for constantly supporting and encouraging me along my maker journey. I’m thankful for my side hustle and to have a full time job that I love. I’m thankful for my health and the ability to run (even if it’s sort of awful, it means I have legs that can carry me). I’m thankful for the little things in life, like puppies, naps, and good cups of tea. .
I could keep adding to this list for days. And that in itself is something I’m thankful for. Not everyone has the things and opportunities I’ve had, and I never want to take them for granted. ❤️ #happythanksgiving
I have so many things to be thankful for and I am especially grateful for the fact that I regularly count my blessings in life. I'm so excited to be able to say that I am where I am in life. I have a wonderfully kind and determined daughter to raise, I am surrounded by so many incredible people who I can be completely myself with, a rewarding job I never would have guessed I'd be in that I love, a cute little place with cheap rent and a garden, my bills are paid, but most of all I am grateful for the person I am today. So much of my life has been full of struggle, painful lessons and growth, so much of it I once wished I hadn't experienced but it made me who I am today and I love that person. I'm an entirely different person than I used to be and I can't express how happy I am to be able to say that. I love waking up and going to bed with a smile on my face most days, I never thought life could be this good. #happiness#redhead#naturalredhead#babe#selfie#gratitude#thanksgiving#thankful#lifeisgood#realtalk
A Great Story #lifeisgood . This is the touching moment a paramedic stands by the side of a patient as she sees the beach for one last time.
The palliative care patient, in her 70s, had been travelling with ambulance crews when she said she just wanted to be at the beach one last time — with the paramedics making her wish come true. “She asked to see the beach one last time. After going the beach and opening the rear door, we asked her if she would like an ice cream, to which she replied yes with a giggle of delight. A short time later the hardly licked ice cream fell to the floor. “The patient had passed away. As she lay there still smiling at the last view that she ever saw.”
My kiddos are with their dad today, so for me it was a very overly quiet house. There was coffee and orange rolls and steak and potatoes and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and National Dog Show watching via live-stream on the computer. These past few months have been difficult and challenging and prayerful and tear-filled... and also freeing and calm and peace-filled. I just don’t take any day for granted. Thanksgiving is less about food and more about me taking a day of quiet reflection. I have so much, so many people, to be thankful for. I am humbled and grateful... I feel like the most fortunate of women. #lifeisgood#goose#schnacks
