This Monday I am finally joining Rachel at Three Butterflies and a Monkey for her Marvelous Mondays.
In Rachel's words
Marvelous Mondays were created to help me start to look at the positives, rather than the negatives. I started them so I would take a moment each week to take a step back and see what I do have, rather than what I do not. I chose Mondays because who are we kidding...don't we all hate Mondays? We have all lost something or have something missing from our lives. It could be a loved one, a job, your home, your heart...
For me, it was my children, Jaxon, Colin and Courtney who were taken from me when they were way too small. It is also my lack of ability to conceive and carry another child in my womb. The constant pain in my heart is numbing and life altering. I am "trying" (trying being the key word) to be positive and look for "good" in life.
So, today on this Marvelous Monday, won't you join me? What is one thing that you are thankful for? It can be simple or complex, silly or serious, tangible or intangible...it can be anything! If you need some ideas you can check out my other Marvelous Monday posts here. Please join me spread some positiveness by posting and linking (via MckLinky) your "Marvelous Monday" on your blog to mine!

Today I am thankful for time with my children. I enjoyed hanging out with them today. I am trying to do something everyday with them, whether its watching a movie, working on a puzzle, coloring, crafts, board games, playing make believe, or just having a conversation with them. Today it was a puzzle and a movie. They are truly amazing and uplifting and funny, they make me laugh always.
