Thankful Thursday - Part 1

Wow! Thanks to Mel's Make a Wish, Take a Wish post yesterday, I have now met my goal (for the present) and have 102 followers! This is fantastic!

As I close in on my 200th post (more about that in a moment), I've decided that my blog has in recent times become a bit too whiny and depressive. Not always. I do occassionally speak on positive things (my weight loss, etc.) but I feel I sometimes focus on the things that are not going the way I want them to, rather than being thankful for the things that are going splendidly. Therefore, I've decided to start a new regular Thursday post for me (you are more than welcome to join in and, if it's been done before, I apologize to whomever's idea I'm stealing!) called "Thankful Thursday". I plan to remember - at least once per week - what I'm thankful for.

This week, I'm thankful for wonderful people who spend some of their limited online time reading my blog and following me. Truly, you are the people who keep me blogging! Without your comments, advice, support and sympathy, I don't know how I'd get through this mess we call infertility (or life, for that matter!). For the last 9 years, blogging has been a huge part of my life. My first blog kept me going during the time I was in England, my second blog saw me through the transition of returning to the US as a married woman and this, my third blog, has been my outlet for all the frustration I'm feeling through our IF battle. You, my dear readers, have been the peanut butter keeping this sandwich together! So, once again, thank you very much for your friendship, your support and your love!

The Hubs and I are working on a very special project to coincide with my 200th post. I'm hoping to be able to unveil it for you this weekend, so stay tuned! I'll now leave you with bated breath until my next installment this weekend....

I feel for you! My husband and I went through the issues of infertility when we were trying to start a family. Back then there was no IVF option. We were very blessed to adopt a beautiful healthy newborn baby boy. He is 38 now and married to a fabulous young woman who is like a daughter to us. We are very lucky proud parents looking forward to someday becoming grandparents.

Congrats on the weight loss.

Good luck on the adoption front. I can't wait to see you become a mommy whether it's through adoption or by giving birth.

Congrats on hitting 100+ followers and on almost hitting 200 posts. Do I officially follow you? I was going to check but your followers list wasn't loading.
