I wrote something very negative that I was going to post. After a very emotional weekend, I decided to stop wallowing in my sorrow and self-pity and try to focus on what I have to be grateful for, because there is really so much, in spite of what I don’t have.
I am grateful I was born in a country and a time where I am free and safe and can pursue my dreams.
I am grateful for the men and women who serve and make sacrifices for our country to protect that freedom.
I am grateful for my husband who works hard so that we can have a wonderful life together, and who makes me feel loved every single day.
I am grateful for my family, who is always there for me, and offer their time, love and support unconditionally.
I am grateful that I am a mother, even if it is to a baby that I never held in my arms. Knowing that pure love and the depth of it has changed me and my life forever and I will never regret being pregnant, in spite of the pain that came with the joy.
I am grateful for all the amazing women that I have met because of my loss. Their strength and love has inspired me and helps me get through the hard times when it seems no one else understands.
