-We’re thankful for (4) parents, (6) sisters (2) brothers, (1) sister-in-law, (6) brother-in-laws, (8) nieces and (14) nephews in Mesa, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Central Point, and Portland. We feel their support even though we live so far away. And we’re so happy that many of them want to visit us Ecuador! 🙂
-We’re thankful we have health. While I don’t have fertility, I still feel healthy and can walk, talk, breathe, move, etc. It’s such a huge, huge blessing. I will never ever forget being very sick with pneumonia shortly before starting this blog. I felt so weak that I remember seeing the end of my life and realizing how fragile and short this life is. And so, I started to write my first blog drafts while being so very sick. I felt such an urgency to record my truths, to share anything that I could.
-We’re thankful for the journey of having this blog. We try to offer love and support here to those who need it and in return, we have received so much love and support from you that we can hardly believe it. Thanks for your beautiful lives. Thanks for connecting with us here.
-We’re thankful that life still has so much to offer even though it often looks nothing like we planned. We learned that lesson when we found ourselves divorced and single again. And we’re learning it again now as we embark on this next chapter of our lives.
What are you grateful for in 2013? It’s kind of cool to reflect and think about it.
P.S. Aren’t the new holiday lights all over Downtown Brooklyn so great? They made all the design saavy Brooklynites proud. 🙂
