Nice Footsteps to Follow

For the past month, I have been reading the blog of a friend of mine back in Michigan. She has decided to write something she is thankful for everyday for one year. This struck me on many levels. After being diagnosed with post-partum depression after Nico was born, there were days that would go by that I couldn't see past my own self. It was dark, sad and extremely lonely. I forgot that there were so many wonderful things in my life to be appreciative of and be thankful for. Now, 7 months into the life of my new son, and nearly 4 & 1/2 years into the life of my daughter, I am ready to be thankful too. Every day.

So, Sara, today, I am thankful for you. Thank you for inspiring me to enter this one year journey of looking beyond myself and into what this incredible world has to offer.

Meg, I write a blog also - I just started it in December. My first post was called "Flashbacks to Losing it" regarding the PPD I experienced after the birth of my second daughter. I commend you for going on each day and doing what you can to get by - I understand how hard it can be. My daughter will be 2 in 6 weeks, and I still struggle sometimes, but each day gets a little easier!
Thank you for sharing and God Bless you & your beautiful family!

Although we don't do it daily, we have been keeping a gratitude journal for a couple of years now. It's nice to see what your spouse is grateful for, to reflect, record, re-read and remember the big and small blessings in our daily lives. Like being blessed to stay in touch over the miles through this site! XXOX, Momma Mia
