The word that comes to mind....GRATITUDE!

I can't even begin to express the feelings of gratitude I have been feeling lately! That isn't the only thing I have felt, but I would say my feelings are the strongest there!

As I look back over this past year, SO much has happened! We have gone through some MAJOR changes. One year ago, Jerry was so busy spending all his time, energy, and thoughts on taking his STEP 1 boards. He wanted so badly to get a score that could open up possibilities to his career in medicine. He hoped it would give him the option of choosing a career that would let him have a family life too.

As Jerry was focused on that...along with many other things...I was focused on my ever GROWING belly! I also had decisions to make about our future.

And now..We have an amazing, healthy, handsome 10 month old little boy. Jerry scored above his expectations on the boards, and life is GREAT! Don't get me wrong, our life isn't perfect, but we know we have been so blessed!

Now the BIG question is...where will we be next year? What will happen between now and then? I think if we continue to think positively, and continue to grow together as a family, I know we will be ok!

I am thankful for all of my blessings. I appreciate the love and support I receive daily from the people in my life. I would be lost without it. I am so grateful for Jerry, and the daily sacrifices he makes so that one day we can live our dream! I am so grateful for Tayden and the things I have learned being a mom. And the list goes on and on! All I can say is I am so grateful!

GRATITUDE: a feeling of thankfulness and appreciation
