Thankful Thursday

Because gratitude is the best attitude...

1)  finding the courage (and money) to sign up for Indie Buisness 3.0!!! I really feel I need a push to see if this whole blogger/crafter thing is going to go anywhere and so here I go...pushing myself. Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!

2) the to die for apple turn overs I have found at the cafe near my work. Nom! Nom! Nom! I swear this kid loves the carbs, I think I am going to give birth to a pastry puff

3) I am so grateful that the bug is ok, I had a fall the other day. I was hiking in the Canyon and hit some and down went el prego! Like a sack of potatoes. Gave me quite the scare, and I was sore for a few days, but the bug and I are A-OK! PHEW!

4)Hearing my babies heartbeat yesterday. I will never get tired of that part of the midwife visits! I look forward to it each and every time, whoosh! whoosh! whoosh!

5) My awesome team of midwives. I am so grateful that I have their support and encouragement...I couldn't imagine not having a midwife! The time and attention given in each and every session is truly a blessing for any mom to be.

6) Hitting a whopping 178 pounds, and not even batting an eyelash when I saw the scale. Being pregnant does wonders for your sense of body image! LOL suddenly I panic if the weight hasn't gone UP in a while. I remember at one point I didn't gain a single pound for nearly 4 weeks and I was WORRIED! Wow, so refreshing eh? It really is liberating actually, taking a back seat and letting your body do what it has to do. Naturally. That is a true testament of faith, hope and love. I am madly in love with my life producing body right now. THANK YOU!

7) Each and every comment this wee lil blog of mine gets. Every morning I sit down with a cup of tea and read your kind thoughts, inspiring words, silly jokes, and random thoughts and I LOVE THEM ALL! Thank you

What are you thankful for this week????

PS: I am linking up to Maxabella Loves as well, hello if you stopped by from there! And if not, well go join the fun!


  1. you know I am a fan of the gratitude! It's such a powerful thing to stop & just be grateful.

    Glad that you & the bug (now picturing a croissant wrapped in a baby blanket) are a-okay!

  2. I tried to reply to your comment on my blog, but it seems you haven't listed your email on blogger. I explain how to do it in this post:

    that way people can reply directly to your comments, and you can reply to comments people leave you!

  3. Hi, Visiting from Reasons to be Cheerful, thanks for linking up.
