day 30.

I’m thankful for this project. I started it because I could feel myself slipping back into a place that I didn’t want to go again for obvious reasons (and some not so obvious), and while I don’t know that I was entirely successful I think it did really help me to focus on the good things I do have in my life. I really am a lucky woman, and where I’m not I know that there are steps I can take to change that even if I don’t know what they are just yet.

day 29.

I’m thankful that even when I’m at a low point, I always have people I can reach out to who love and support me.

day 28.

I’m thankful we made it through our first completely binkie-free week unscathed. We’d been down to only nighttime use for a while now, but at Monkey’s 2-year check up last Monday the pediatrician said that we should cut them entirely (and really we should have done it sooner). So we did. Literally. We cut off all the ends Monday evening and while he still wants to hold the empty handles, after the first rather confusing night for him he seems unbothered by the lack of them.

day 27.

I’m thankful for this blog. I’m thankful for the outlet it has given me and the friends it has brought me, or brought me closer to. It is so much more than I expected it would be when I started it over 3 years ago. I’m thankful to you out there reading, whoever you are. I’m thankful for those of you who have been reading since my very first post, and for those of you who might be reading it for the first time with this, my 800th post. I’m thankful for all of you who have commented countless times, and for those of you who have never commented at all. I’m thankful for those of you who follow in readers or by emails, and you who check in every once in a while. I’m thankful for all of you who have given me support and sent me messages and good thoughts, even if they’ve gone unspoken, those of you who know me in person and who have never met me before. I’m thankful to have this medium to reach out into the world and share a little about who I am, where I’ve been and where I want to go, my joy and my despair–and I hope it has been more of the former. This is a gift for me, and from me to you. So thank you, all of you, even if I don’t know who you are.

day 26.

I’m thankful for photography. I love that I can capture images of my son as he grows, beautiful flowers, and gorgeous skylines. I love the women it has brought into my life through my message board. I’m thankful that two weeks ago today I was enjoying the company of some of them, thankful that one of them opened her home to me and was so gracious. I’m thankful that I can laugh and cry with them, that we can share our lives through our images, that they offer me encouragement and support no matter what is happening. I’m thankful that they have become women that I consider dear friends even though most of them I’ve never met. I’m thankful for the images I make and see every day.

day 25.

I’m thankful for safe trips and being home again.

day 24.

I’m thankful for good times and card games with Firefly’s family.
