I'm off...

I am leaving tonight for Idaho, and won't be back until Thanksgiving day. I don't know if I will have the opportunity to be on the computer while we are gone, so I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. I know that dealing with IF makes it very hard to be thankful for things, but I suggest making a list. Make a list of all the things you are thankful for - I know that it sure is helping me get through this week!

I am thankful for:
My blogger and other internet friends who support me and my struggle with infertility from all parts of the world. I am so thankful that I have people that I can pour out my struggles to and not be shamed, or given crappy assvice! LOL

My husband. IF has made some areas of our marriage VERY strained, but he has never given up on me. When I am crazy on fertility meds, or when I am thinking of my miscarriage and I can't stop crying, he never leaves my side. I love that man and someday he is going to make some child(ren) very lucky by being the best dad!

My friends IRL. I have had some really crappy friends in the past, but this last year has opened doors for me to meet some of the most amazing men and women. I am so grateful that I can call these people friends!

Job security - In this very scary economy I am SO thankful that we both have job least for now.

My family - They really have been wonderful. They try to understand my infertility as much as they can, for the most part, they just listen. Which is sometimes all I want/need.

My increasing health - This year my periods have returned on their own, I started ovulating on my own AND I am well on my way to my very first EVER 27 day cycle. - Incredible!

My Faith - This, above all has allowed me to continue this journey. I am so thankful that I serve a Lord that is forgiving, a Lord that never looks at my past to determine my future and a Lord that loves me where I am.

God Bless each and every one of you. May you all have safe travels and a very Happy Thanksgiving!
