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.
