I am still not sure who reads this blog but I'll write in it anyways. So I haven't written any post lately because things have been so busy. With school coming to a close. But that's enough talk about that. Today is Thanksgiving day and what's the best part of thanksgiving. The food, nope. The gathering of family and friends, nope. It's a day to say thanks to our heavenly father for all the blessings that we do have. So...here is my list of my thanks.
My lovely husband. He works hard so that I can go to school and don't have to work. He works his butt off every day at work and is even working today to make sure that we have food on the table and are able to buy things that we need. He is also a wonderful support when I am frustrated and upset. He gives me hope that everything will turn out okay in the end. I can't be who I am today without him by myside and supporting me.
My mom. Things this year have been going on a rough trip with her. She had surgry to remove her kidney and found out that it had cancer. We almost lost her after surgry because she couldn't breath right. It was hard to be away from her while she was in the hospital. But I am thankful for at least having another year with her. For her to be able to see her grandchild being born in May. I am very greatful for the doctors who took care of her. I am also greatful for the strength that she has. It was just the two of us for a long time and she worked hard to make sure that I can be a normal teenager.
My sisters. My sisters are a wonderful support system for me. they always drop their things to talk to me when I call. Especially, when I am nervous or scared. My sisters listen to what I say to them. They don't judge me and I don't judge them. We have come a long way to have this relationship. I am so thankful to my sisters in my life.
My In-Laws. I don't think their is many daughter-in-laws that can say that they adore their in-laws. They are a lot of fun to be around. Especially, when playing games with them. When I married into the family they also took my mom in. They try to invite her over as much as they can. They also visited her when she was in the hospital which I am so greatful for. They didn't have to do any of that but they did and that means so much to me.
My nieces and nephews: I have grown up into an adult along side them. I remember when my first nephew was born and I held him for the first time. They taught me so much of who I am and how much I want to be a teacher. They give me strength through their hugs and smiles. They taught me how to become a parent as I watched them grow up and watched their joys.
My friends: You guys are strength to Stephen and I. You give us strength and we cherish creating memories with you guys.
Sarah: I am so greatful for a friend like her. I couldn't get through some of my classes without her help. She is always willing to look over my papers for me even if she is working on homework. She always puts me first and it makes me so happy to have her as a friend. I couldn't be where I am with out her support. I am hoping so very hoping that soon she will be able to get a job that she loves.
My little one: I have always dreamed of becoming a mother. Never in my life did I not want to become a mother. But when I was twelve years old hearing that some of the medication that I was taking for my RA could cause me to not become a mother I was heartbroken. I have struggled so much for this chance. This chance to be who I always knew I wanted to be. Worried about the struggle of being able to concieve a child and Heavenly Father blessed me with the surpise of my life. Even though Stephen and I didn't think we were ready. Heavenly father knew we were and blessed us with this little one. I can't wait to find out what we are having in a couple more weeks. I can't wait for the chance to be able to feel the baby move within me and know this isn't a dream anymore. Then when May comes, I'll have my own little one in my arms. No matter the struggles Stephen and I will have in becoming parents we are so thankful for this chance.
Gospel: Not many people know that I fell away from the gospel. I struggled with being a member. I am so greatful for the chance to be able to come back to the gospel. So feel the holy spirit within in my soul. To watch it's gifts in blessing my loved ones. So watch my soul being healed. I am so greatful.
