Day 6: thankfulness

Today your mama was reminded ever so gently, okay, not gently at all but more of a huge giant slap in the face about being thankful.

First of all, you my love, are perfect. I'm not talking about cutie pah tootie, I'm talking about your health. You grew into an amazing and 100% perfect little man. You have 10 fingers, 10 toes, amazing eyes, ears, and everything else a baby should have. I was reminded today that this is not always the case and in fact was brought to tears at the mere "taking it for granted" feelings. Sure I thank God every single day for you. I thank him that you are healthy, happy, and all around amazing.

I am thankful that I am able to be home with you, that your daddy has a job when so many do not. I am thankful that we have food on the table, in the fridge and in the pantry. When so many do not know where their next meal will come from, we have food to spare.

I am thankful for amazing family that is here for us whenever we need them. Both your family here in Texas and around the country love you more then words and would do anything for you. At the drop of a hat at least 50 people would be surrounding us if we needed it, and that is something that not everyone has.

I pray that you will always be thankful, have a heart that is full of gratitude. That you will always be able to see the glass as half full and not half empty. See the sunny side of things and most importantly, know how completely blessed we are!

YouAdios Mis Amigos,
