Giving Thanks

As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, I feel the need to reflect on all the blessings in my life.  I’m not going to pretend that these past 5ish months haven’t been difficult, but as our doctors appointments have slowed and Elena is developing her own personality, things are beginning to look up.  I have come to the realization that life will not be easy for her, but really, is it easy for any of us?  I hope that all three of my children are faced with opposition and learn from it, and grow into responsible and loving adults.  I am thankful for Elena because she will teach our family how to love in a brand new way.  We will learn a whole new kind of love that we may have never been exposed to if it weren’t for her.  I am thankful that Caden and Ava only see Elena as their sister, nothing more and nothing less.  I am confident that they will be her advocates when Jason and I cannot.  I am thankful that I have family and friends who have not run from our situation, but been there for my family every step of the way.  I guess what it boils down to is that I am most thankful for my husband, for Caden, for Ava, and Elena.  They are the loves of my life and I can say now, after the dust has settled, that I would not change one thing about it.
