Today I am thankful for my son. I am thankful that I got to carry him for 8 months, which was far too short. I am grateful for every kick and roll that I got to feel. I am very thankful for the hours that we got to hold him in our arms and say good-bye. I am thankful that I believe that I will get to see my sweet Declan again in Heaven. I am very grateful for my friend, Kim, who was able to come up and take these photos for us. I miss my little guy.

Today I am thankful for my Elsie Piper. I love that goofball girl. She is silly and sweet and a whole lot of sassy. I am thankful for her silliness. She quite often makes everyone giggle during stressful moments. I am thankful for her constant business even though it makes me crazy. She has a big heart and LOVES babies and animals. I am thankful that she is quite a chatterbox for her age. She has to keep up with her big sisters and is very insulted if left out of anything.

Today I am thankful for my second born. Calina Jean is a sweet, energetic girl with very big emotions. I am very thankful for her constant snuggles and hugs, especially the last few weeks. She and I speak the same love language so I am grateful for her snuggles. She is funny, smart, and dances to the beat of her own drum. I am thankful for her unique fashion sense and how she has blossomed into quite the stubborn spitfire since starting school this year.

Today I am thankful for Fiona. Almost 5 years ago she made me a mommy and it has been a wonderful adventure. She is so kind hearted and generous. She keeps me on my toes constantly with her intelligence and high energy levels. She is a social butterfly. I am thankful that she is such a sweet, caring big sister and friend.

Today I am thankful for my bow business and all the amazing people who have supported me in this adventure. I love that I have the ability to be creative and crafty, while making some money for extra things for my family. I love getting to go to craft shows and meet new people. Plus, I have a pretty fantastic craft show partner. I am blessed that I get to make a little extra money doing something that I really enjoy doing. It gives me an outlet for my creativity and is often a stress reliever after a busy day with the kids.

I am thankful for Nathan. Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of our first real date (I don't count the sort of dates and years of just being friends before that). I found my soul mate and my best friend in him. He is my rock. He teaches me patience. He has the ability to make me laugh when I am in my darkest places. He holds me when I need to cry. God knew what he was doing when he sent Nathan into my life and I am grateful to have such a fantastic partner in life. We have walked a busy road the last 10 years and our life has gone through a lot of changes. I can't wait to see where the next 10 take us.
