HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!
We should be grateful all year long, but now especially is the time to stop, put down the fork, and take a look around at the people surrounding you and the moments happening before you. It’s a time to reflect on the things and memories and loved ones you DO have, not dwell on all of the things you don’t.
We’ve been naming one small thing we’re grateful for everyday on Emotional Mojo, leading up to Thanksgiving. It really is a great daily practice to train your mindset to be more thankful and appreciative.
2014 has been a blessed year for my family, we made it through a tough miscarriage earlier in the year. But, it’s taught Chris and I both to really savor every moment we make as a family. We have a new appreciation for the miracle of life and all of the amazing things that had to come together to bring us Baby Jack. He is such a happy, sweet and innocent child. He brings so much joy to our lives and, even though losing our baby in March was a tragedy, our unborn child brought us the gift of APPRECIATING life that much more.
And now, we are expecting again. We are at the halfway point and so far, so good. I couldn’t think of a better reason to be thankful :).
And I’ll leave you with some of my favorite moments captured on camera by Ashley DiPaolo, of DiPaolo Studios. Happy Thanksgiving from Baby Jack!
