5 minutes friday

this is my first time doing this. i found this at gypsy mama's blog. thought it would be a great idea to do this each friday.

here is how it works!
1. Write for 5 minutes flat with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my right side bar}
3. Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words meant to you. Every writer longs to feel heard

today's word is grateful.

i have so many thing in my life to be grateful for right now. i never thought my life would be this wonderful. i never thought i would have this amazing little boy that rocks my world. i never thought i would meet a man that cares about me. it is such a feel that you can't describe.

i tried for 19 years to get pregnant. infertility dr's. dye test to see if my tubes were open. clomid. all along i never thought that it just wasn't meant to be with the person that i was with at the time. i used to get a little mad when people would say "all in god's timing." no...i wanted it now. but god knew that i wouldn't want to be stuck with my ex for the rest of my life. plus, he knew that he would not be the father and husband that i would need. i am grateful for the experience i had with my ex. it made me realize a lot of things, mainly that i am strong. that i can do what i set my mind to do. i realized that life is too short to take things for granted, especially happiness!

i'm grateful for my family. at first they didn't understand why we seperated. but i know they see now how much better i am. i am grateful that god sent me eric and his family.

i'm grateful for my job. i was in a crappy job for about as long as i was in that crappy marriage. i guess it goes to show you that once one thing isn't going well others follow along.

i'm grateful that i have such support. i have some awesome friends that i wouldn't trade for the world.

life is 100% better. not a day goes by that i don't thank god for my son, husband and this great life!

It's amazing how when things fall in to place you realize the reasons behind all the waiting. We didn't try for nearly as long, but we felt the same way when she came along. It was the PERFECT time. I don't know you, but your life changes seem to have made you very happy. It's infectious! (Stopping by via The Gypsy Mama. Welcome to the group!)

Thank you so much for sharing with us today! Blessings!
