My family and I have so much to be thankful for this year. I could not be happier or more fulfilled than I feel today, and that is not only because of the blessings that I have in my life, but also because of the happy news that the past week has brought for several of my good friends:
I have 'known' Adrienne for almost 3 years and even though we've never met in person, I most certainly count her as one of my friends and, in many ways, know more about her and feel closer to her than some people I have actually met IRL. The internet is an amazing thing! :) She struggled for a long time on her road to motherhood, and we were both in the trenches together for a while. It made my heart swell when she made the big announcement that her baby boy, James David, was born last Friday morning. I am so incredibly happy for her, and James is adorable, so head over to her blog to see pics and congratulate her!
And then, go over and congratulate Alison, who had a positive beta yesterday after her first IVF cycle! WOOHOO!!! So happy for her!!! (AND, so amazed that she successfully resisted the urge to POAS before her beta. WOW. I sooo could not have held out! But I'm kind of a POAS addict, as we all remember... :)
Congratulations to Adrienne and Alison, and to my other friends out there who have celebrated happy news recently. I feel honored and THANKFUL to be able to share in your joy with you!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
