Mary's 1st ever Thanksgiving list, 2008

Definitley Obama, who I fell in love with many years ago after reading “Dreams of My Father”.  And I’ll have you know I told everyone…this man should be president!  I don’t think he was even a Senator at the time!

Thomas the Tank Engine (Sasha is obsessed!)

And now I’m drawing a blank.  After a truly life altering event at the end of September I’m sitting here thinking of what I am thankful for.  And I am truly not taking the “easy” way out, but my life has been turned inside out and upside down so my priorities are very different. 

Truly I am so very thankful for my wonderfully supportive family!  Words can not express, I’m writing this with tears in my eyes and a choke in my throat.

My husband home with me no matter his state of mind and the strength of our love.

 My inner strength that I didn’t know I possesed, especially my ability to be the happy upbeat mommy most of the time, when all I want to do is sink into self pity. 

 My Son, my son, my son!!! 

My pregnancy, although many times I have been anything but thankful, but as this little bean pie grows and becomes so much more a part of me with movements increasing daily, I am falling in love!

 Laila, Tiffany, and Amy, my only friends who I can burden with my troubles. 

Karima for always thinking of me and my family and for her prayers.

All the new women I have met in my support group.

The holidays, because no matter what is going on I still get that warm fuzzy feeling during the holiday season.

My life, my husband’s life, my son’s life.  We are here, together, alive, and in love.

  1. Oh Mary, I love you! And I can vouch for the fact that you said Obama should be president YEARS ago when you lent me that book.
