About Me

I am a lot of things, wife, sister, friend, and aunt but most of all I am a grieving mother of a lost baby girl taken too soon.  This blog is my way of venting and surviving.  I'm trying to find my way back to funny, sarcastic, and happy but it's quite a journey.

Things for which I am grateful

Things for which I am grateful

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I thought I would write out a list of things I am grateful for.  This past year has been a real test so I thought it important to remember the reasons why I keep fighting.  The reasons I know that although I will never forget, that I will make it through this. 

So here goes:

·         A supportive husband that never lets me down
·         A kickass big sister that shows me how to fight
·         Friends that have been there for me through the good and the bad
·         Our black lab Annie, even though she drives me crazy, is truly man’s best friend
·         Over-all good health (This week anyways)
·         Arts and crafts to keep my mind at ease
·         Wine for the really bad days
·         A roof over my head to keep the black clouds away
·         Food in my belly-sometimes too much
·         A chance to emotionally recover-And work out the food in my belly
·         That we got Lydia’s heartbeat recorded-So I can listen to it all of my life
·         Health insurance-Without it I wouldn’t have most of the above!
·         Cute boots-Because my inner self is kind of a diva
·         Coffee-Without it I wouldn’t be able to function
·         Inlaws that I love-A lot of poeple do not get that lucky
·         CJ my nephew-Who has made me want to be a mom
·         Kevin’s ability to understand me-Because sometimes I feel like no-1 else does

Well with that all said, I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope all of my Angel mommy friends find some peace this holiday.  Kevin and I decided not to do family stuff for Thanksgiving and go to the casino and have a fun date night instead.  I couldn’t do the family stuff.  With Christmas not too far away I would rather be more emotionally stable for that, than try when I’m not ready.  It might sound selfish to some people, even our family, but we still have a lot of healing to do and we just couldn't emotionally deal with a holiday yet. 

Hopefully my millions await J


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I love your list (especially the cute boots). I am not feeling the family stuff either, but The Husband won't hear of skipping his aunt's house. I would gladly sit home and eat takeout all day. Anyway I hope you win lots of money :)

    1. Hey,
      I have been trying to accept your invite and it wont let me. It says to resend. Can you please resend so that I can still follow your blog?

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! Your list is awesome... I'm thinking about doing one tomorrow too. I love the casino idea. Hope you guys have fun!

  3. What a wonderful list. You've inspired me to do my own tomorrow.
    Today my post was a bit morose so I should probably balance that out!
