Happy Friday y’all! Fridays always make me feel excitable because I do not have to wake up early Saturday morning. I am sure some or most of you understand that very well.
First, I would like to thank Aislinn of http://msbabymakin.blogspot.com/ for the wonderful gift of the paracord awareness bracelet (see below). I am super excited about this! Thanks Aislinn! May your journey be Blessed with a bundle of joy in your arms.
Secondly, I feel so grateful to have my husband as my life partner. I am amazed at his propensity to make my life better in more ways than one. He has truly been there for me even when I do not deserve his constant assurance and love. I need to do better in terms of loving, giving, listening, assuring, and pleasing him. Besides, what good am I being nicer to strangers than I am to him?
I am also grateful for last weekend. It being a long weekend allowed us to have a mini-getaway. Isn’t this beautiful? This is a view of Lake Tahoe from above. I took this pic from the Heavenly gondolas up above.
As much as I did not realize, this trip really allowed us to focus on each other and remember what is important. Sometimes we are so busy going through the wringers of life that we forget to have some fun or pay attention to all the Blessings around us. A few things I was reminded of were the fact that I have a best friend for a hubs… I can pretty much tell him anything and we have fun together. His goofiness totally puts me at ease when I am sweating small stuff. I love that I can be myself in all ways, and I mean ALL ways and he will still think of me as the cutest thing in the world. I mean, what did I do to deserve such a great man?!
I am also grateful for sunsets. I think they are a great reminder that even with all that goes on in the world and in our lives, beauty exists. I see God in sunsets. I just love them. They exude peace, joy and tranquility to me. I took this photo on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe and in all honesty, the pic does not do it justice.
I am grateful for the lack of hot flashes... this is not to mentione the ugly side of Estradiol - read wt gain... It is kinda nice to be comfortable and sleep like a baby again. I know this is short lived but I am grateful altogether.
I don’t think I mentioned that we started seeing a therapist. This I am grateful for! We are still establishing rapport (seen her twice) but I feel that she has already been essential in helping us deal with a lot of things. I am now able to look at hubs point of view in dealing with the throws of complicated-baby-making. He is also able to see things from my point of view. This I know because he has been working hard at meeting me from my place instead of asking me to shake it off and keep moving coz life is not fair. Yes, you heard it... that is his way of dealing. Instead of me looking at it like he does not care, I now know that this is just how he deals with tragic problems. He has been through a few tragedies and has emerged strong and focused. Our goal is to go in weekly, and I feel good about this one. We should have done it sooner. I think everyone should look into thisJ
