Since yesterdays post was so decidedly negative I thought I might do a post about what I am thankful for today. :)
My husband and I live in Northern California and the weather here is really great. It makes me happy that I no longer have to shovel snow or drive on ice.
I have two chickens...and that may seem like a strange one but it is awesome. I like everything about it, I think maybe I should have gone into animal husbandry or something. I'm also thankful that they are both healthy after our scare over the summer.
I have three cats...it may seem like a lot to some, but I did only have two and then a stray "chose" me and I can't not be happy about it. I always have someone to snuggle when I get home from work. Someone is always happy to see me. :)
I have a good job. Frustrating at times but good. My DH and I have not been too impacted by the economy other than furlough for him (knock on wood) and in that respect we have been very very lucky and I am thankful.
I have good family and friends...clueless they may be but they love me and that's nothing to sneeze at.
I have no major health issues (besides the ONE big one that the blog is about). I can run and jump and read and hear and eat etc and I am very thankful for that.
I have access to a wonderful therapist.
I have access to a wonderful support group here online.
I can choose to eat healthy, organic, locally grown, grassfed, etc. I don't always choose to do so, but I have the means and the willpower to and for the most part choose it.
So when all is said and done I am a lucky girl and today that's what I am focused on.
I ordered a big pack of Ovulation predictor tests and some pre seed which I've read about online and had a serious conversation with DH about what we both expect this month...and off we go!
Thank you so much for all of your support and kind words, I can't tell you how much better it makes me feel to read what you've written.
