Thankful Thursday: A distraction from PPD
It's a good thing that it's Thursday because as low as I've been feeling, it's great that I'm being forced to reflect upon the good things. So, no crying. No weepies. For the next few moments, I'm going to write about the things that are making me smile.
I'm thankful for my sweet healthy children who seem to really love their brother, for my husband who is helpful and takes such good care of us, for an opportunity to stretch and grow as a wife (even if it's hurting me like heck), nice weather and sitting next to this open window and hearing the birds outside, for no longer needing Ibuprofen because I'm healing and feeling better, for friends who take the time out of their day to spend the morning with you and boil your eggs because you always screw it up, for people to whom I can talk about ppd, people who get it and who are willing to listen, for the lovely yellow flowers from my friend Courtney, for an abundant milk supply and a good nurser (despite my hatred of breastfeeding... I know, I'm a huge contradiction), for episodes of "Arrested Development" already watched but enjoyable again and again, and for my nursing tanks on the way!
I'm also thankful for all of your outpouring of love and support. Your comments either here on my blog or on Facebook or via email have been greatly appreciated as always.
