                  The more and more I went through my trials the last five years, the more I realized what I do have to be thankful for. I realized what is truly important in life, and everything I have to be thankful for. Sometimes I look back and wonder if I would see all of that now if I didn’t go through those trials that I went through. My eyes and heart were opened in a way I didn’t see before. Every day things I used to take advantage of, I now am so grateful for.Every single night since I had Krew, as I say my prayers, I say how thankful I am for him. It was a long hard road to get him here, and he has been through more than I could of imagined. After losing a baby ,I realize how grateful I am that Krew is still here with us. I am so thankful for him. My trials have taught me so much, and one of the things it taught me is gratitude. I have so much to be thankful for. 
               This is my favorite time of year. As thanksgiving approaches I am starting a gratitude journal this month. Everyday I will write down things I am thankful for.  I challenge you to do do the same. Write in a gratitude journal everyday this month. Or get some post it notes and write down something new everyday, then put it up somewhere where you can see it. It’s amazing when you start thinking about what you are thankful for, and then you realize how much you truly have to be thankful for.
