Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday



Happy Thursday YUMMs!  The week started off rough to say the least.  However, I'm thankful that despite a bit of drama, I'm ending it on a positive note.  I'm most thankful this week that JJ's therapist actually showed up for his therapy session on Monday.  We were so used to her not coming that we were actually still asleep when she got here.  The look of surprise on my face when I opened the door totally gave me away.  (I need to work on my poker face more.)

Anyways, hopefully we won't have any more skipped sessions for the rest of the summer.  And while we're on the subject of JJ, I'm thankful that as of late, I have been finding more moms within my blogging and vlogging circles that have children who are special needs as well.  Y'all it's so refreshing to have moms who I can talk to that understand what we're going through as well as give me advice.  As much as I'm staying positive the reality of the situation is that JJ's learning disability will probably always have some impact on him and I need to know what that might look like when he's older.  So, having moms with older kids sharing their experiences with me has been a lifesaver and helped me to not be so stressed out or down.

I'm also thankful that I got in a good workout this week.  Like seriously, I worked up a sweat. Not one of those baby sweats either.  It feels good to be focusing more on my self-care.  I'm pretty much knocking on 30's door and we all know that with getting older we need make sure our bodies stay in the best shape possible, especially for me since diabetes and high blood pressure plus obesity run in my family.  The kids had a good time playing while I used the tennis court to get in a few laps as well.

Last but not least I'm grateful for excellent friends who check-in on me just because!  Hope y'all have a blessed rest of the week!

What's on your gratitude list this week?

  1. It's good to have moms you can connect with an talk over whats going on with your kids. Sometimes we don't want a solution we just want someone to listen.

  2. I love that you have a thankful post each week. Such a great idea. There is a blog hop that I try to join each week that happens on Fridays called Ten Things of Thankful and let me just say the ladies on there are super supportive and I always get a lot of comments and positive feedback. I linked up this week if you want to stop by and join in. I think it usually goes live Friday night. But when you said something about support from special needs parents, I thought of a really wonderful lady that hosts that hop and she blogs here: http://www.findingninee.com/. Her son Tucker is 4 or 5 I think. Not a lot older, but you two might be able to encourage each other on the journey. She's extremely supportive to me and others so I think you would love her.
