Thanksgiving this year was a day of mixed emotions for me. Despite all that happened this year in my life, I still do have so much that I am thankful for. But it was also a reminder of what I was missing this year, my son. It was Thanksgiving day last year that we had started telling people I was pregnant. Still blows me away how much life has changed in just a year.

I am thankful for all the things Noah taught me. He taught me to appreciate and be grateful for the little things in life that so many people take for granted everyday. As well as not getting worked up or stressed over things that really aren't worth it. He helped make my faith stronger and showed me miracles still do happen. Noah reminded me that life itself is truly out of our hands and therefore we need to make the most of each day we are given.

So even as I reflect over the toughest year of my life, I know I am still blessed and have much to be thankful for. It doesn't take away the ache of wanting my son in my arms, but I am thankful knowing I have the promise of Heaven and getting to hold Noah someday again soon.
