Today was hard. It seemed like everything was a constant struggle for me. At one point this afternoon, I sent J a text that said "And the hits just keep on coming..." because that is exactly how I felt. It was just. plain. rough.

So I thought I would end this day on a good note. I try to do this every day, but especially on the hard, frustrating days. So here are a few things I'm thankful for and happy about today...

I'm so blessed to be able to spend the rest of my life with this man.... I love him more and more every day. And he's so dang good looking, I can't even stand it! Side note - someday I would love to have that body back. :)

I'm thankful for this little cutie. My first baby. The baby girl who made me a mother. The baby who grew up in 3 short years to become this little girl...


And this baby girl. My second baby. The baby girl who was so attached to her mommy that no one could hold her for about the first six months of her life (really, no joke... she would scream for me, even if Jared was holding her). And in just a few short months she'll be 2! She is such a sweet little girl....


And then there is my third little girl. She is such an easy baby. I love her sweet cheeks and her tiny little smile. She's such a joy and I am enjoying watching her grow and change...

I'm so happy that my sister will be moving back home to AR in a couple of months. She's my best friend and we are incredibly close... so this past year with her so far away has been hard on us. I can't wait to see her more often! (Again, look at my rockin' body - I know it will never look like that again, but a girl can dream!)

I'm thankful that I have a husband who loves me and who I love more than I ever thought possible.
I'm thankful I have 3 precious children who are healthy and happy and are the joys of our life. 
I'm thankful that I'm a mother - it is a responsibility that I do not take lightly.
Every day I thank God for the abundant blessings in my life... even on the hard days. 
I'm thankful that I have family, friends and a God who loves me.
And I'm thankful for today, even though it was hard and frustrating and I found myself in tears more than once.... I'm happy I had this day.

I am so glad Whit is coming home too! And I love that you probably the only person who's babies I can look at and tell which child it is with no questions!
