Gratitude Project

The beginning of November just reminds me that the end of the year is coming fast.
I have so many things to be thankful for and sometimes I forget that.
So, I'm having a gratitude week.
Everyday I'll post about something I am grateful for.

Day One

I am thankful for my eyesight.
(When I was 23 I was diagnosed with a condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri.
My body produces too much spinal fluid and it puts pressure on my optic nerves. One of my biggest fears is loosing my eyesight, the other is not being able to have children. This summer, I've been working on getting my body healthy so we can try to get pregnant. Not only am I thankful for my eyesight, but I am also thankful for modern medicine for helping me keep my eyesight so one day if we are able to get pregnant, I'll be able to see our baby.)

What are you thankful for today?

I am greatful for a little boy that loves me to pieces, so much that he follows me to the bathroom and tries to sit in my lap while I'm going potty.

ps--Jack and I tried to almost two years to have him, and it happened when I was stressing about other things right after Katrina. Surprise, it's not stress, you're pregnant!

You and I are so much alike, Kat. I was thinking of writing a similar post on my blog, can you believe that? It's so cool when that happens.

I'm grateful for friends like you, Kat. I love reading your blog and appreciate all that you share with us. Also, thanks for being so supportive and kind and I want you to know I appreciate the time you take to visit my little 'ol blog.

As I get older I've become much more aware and appreciative of all of the things that we sometimes take for granted. It's always good to be reminded.

Great idea! Right now Kevin and I both are going through an assortment of health issues. (long story) I too am grateful for modern medicine. What a blessing to have doctors that can help us have a life with quality.
