right now i'm grateful for...

Oh Joy and Ruby

...getting past the stage of being super self-conscious about my body. I'm surprised, but glad, that stretch marks and post-baby breasts have made me get over those body issues I obsessed over in my teens and 20's. It feels freeing to accept yourself for who you are.

...having this blog for nine years now (this was my first post). I am grateful that I still enjoy it, and that you all still come by to read it.

...your words of encouragement and support about my gestational diabetes. After crying a good tear over missing my sweet treats, I've learned about how to better balance everything out till baby comes ;)

...being a resident of New York City thirteen years ago when the world changed forever. I am grateful to have seen how a city and a country could unite together and to have been spared the injuries and loss that struck so many.

It's nice to stop for a moment and think about what we really have to be grateful for—on crappy days when nothing seems to be going right...and especially on days when things are feeling too good to be true.

So, tell me friends, what are you grateful for?
