thankful on thursday

Its the end of the day and I'm just getting around to popping in here. Its crazy busy at work with our biggest event coming up on Monday, and our events planner out indefinitely due to her mom quickly loosing a battle with cancer. Its a horrible situation, and while it sucks not having her here to help, it sucks more going through what she's going through. She already lost her father to cancer a few years back, and she herself had surgery to remove a cancerous mass last year... now her mom. Some families simply seem to get more then their fair share.

So here are just a few of the things I'm thankful for:
  1. ...that my family has their health. 
  2. sweet, caring husband; who loves me no matter what.
  3. beautiful daughter who lights up my life. And who clearly loves me so much that she needs extra snuggle time with me at night.  ;-) 
  4. ...that she slept from 11 - 4 last night, then went back down until 5:55. She's also been going down to bed easily lately, which is nice. ::knocks on wood::
  5. snuggly, cuddly pup. She's the sweetest thing. 
  6. ...that I just had to send an embarrassing email to my boss and our contact at the event site, asking about a room where I can pump, because it means that we are still breastfeeding almost 9 months out!
  7. ...that my boss responded quickly, without batting an eye, and offered me his and his wife's room at the hotel there to use! Sometimes my boss is really wonderful. 
  8. ...that my supply, after taking a dip, seems to be recovering with the help of some fenugreek, blessed thistle, and an extra pumping session in the evenings. 
  9. ...also for my freezer stash, so that while my supply was down, we didn't have to stress about having enough milk for Gwen's daycare bottles.
  10. ...that Thanksgiving, a great day surrounded by family and full of good food/cheer/laughter, is right around the corner. Can you believe it?!

There are dozens more things that I am thankful for, but I'll stop there for now. So much more to do before the end of the day!

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your co-worker, what a horrible situation.

    I like your thankful list very much. It's very easy to forget how lucky we are, even when things are tough, we still have something to be grateful for. Thank you for reminding me :-)


Leave me some love!
