Terrible Day

I had a terrible day today. It's days like today that I need a reminder of the things I am thankful for.

I am thankful for:

My Husband. He is brilliant, sweet, totally sexy, and adoring. He is a wonderful father and a perfect best friend. I am so blessed to have him. Just about 2 years ago he told me he loved me for the first time. We were in bed, getting ready to fall asleep and I said "Goodnight" and he replied, "I love you". It was so cool. It still is.

My Step Kiddo. She is beautiful, hilarious, crazy, and smart. First grade is treating her well. She is learning so fast. Seeing her with Nora is so cool...They are the best of friends already.

My Baby. Nora, you are all that I could wish for and all that I have ever wanted all mixed up with everything I have never wanted and never wished for. You are my perfect, lovable, screamy, dramatic baby. I love you more than I could ever ever imagine loving anyone or anything.

My parents. God truly outdid himself with my family. My mom, dad, stepdad, and stepmom are all wonderful in their own little ways. Thank you for everything. (I don't have silly pictures of them, or I would add them....)

Everyone else. How many of us realize that every single person in our life is a blessing. Good, bad, and ugly - they all mold us into the people that we are and God put everyone in their perfect places, in the role that they are meant to play in our life. Other assorted family, friends, strangers, etc - they are all here for a reason.

I love my life. Today was a tough one. Tomorrow will be better.
