so, it’s Canadian Thanksgiving today, and basically it has been all weekend, with a couple of family dinners to go to, lots of good food to eat, and lots of visiting. i have, however, had a few moments to think about what i am thankful for this year, reflecting on the last twelve months.
the biggest joy is my husband. the “surrogacy thing” was our hugest challenge to date in the last 11 years we have known each other, and i am so grateful for how well we came out the other side of this experience. i have to say, we are even stronger than before. i am more confident in his love for me, and mine for him. i hate to wax corny, but we truly have that kind of love that you don’t always find these days, that kind where 11 years later, through thick and thin and lots of challenges, we still hold hands, make funny faces and noises at each other, call each other ridiculous pet names, and enjoy each others’ company nearly constantly. the “surrogacy thing” did not change that about us, didn’t create uncomfortable conversations or moments of silent thought that we don’t want to share. we are ok, we made it, we are still happy and in love.
i am grateful for him and for us, we are enough!
happy Canadian Thanksgiving to everyone.
