Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

For some reason, it seems like this week has gone by fast.  Just another sign I guess that we should be cherishing the time spent with our loved ones.  This week I'm thankful for and truly humbled by the success of YUMMommy.  No, I may not have 500 followers, but still this blog is a success.  Why?  Well, honestly while my mission was to touch others with the sharing of my experiences, I never expected even 50 people to care about what I had to say.

Your continued support and adoration means the world to me.  This blog has opened up the door for so many of my other projects that I have in the works right now.  It's allowed me the opportunity to meet some very amazing people.  I've been through some really dark moments in my life and this blog is showing me that there is sunshine and happiness.  In a way, this blog is helping me to prove to myself that despite of my past, I am worthy of good things.

I am also thankful for my loving family as always.  My mom called me earlier this week.  She knew that I had an issue that was bothering me and she called to let me know that she keeping me in prayer.  When she told me what her prayer was, I was shocked to learn that it was the same thing that I had been praying to God.  Talk about Him sending you signs.

I'm thankful that my mom is my prayer warrior (look it up if you don't know).  I'm not holier than thou but I take my relationship with God seriously.  I'm thankful that He is showing me how to go deeper in my faith and let Him move my mountains.

I am also thankful that JJ's eczema is clearing up on his face.  The pediatrician had to put him on a stronger steroid for his body but the one for his face is working very well.  He's also sleeping completely through the night at two months!!  People say that I have miracle babies because most babies don't start sleeping through the night until after 3 months.  I like to credit our co-sleeping arrangement to that.

I am thankful to all my guest bloggers for sharing their breastfeeding adventures with us.  They're keeping it real and giving you other moms and moms to be the real skinny on what breastfeeding and pumping is all about.  It's not all rainbows and skittles like the magazines try to portray it.  It's work.  Hard work but well worth the benefits if you can do it.

What are you thankful for this week?


  1. I'm thankful for my husband. He makes this parenting thing a bit easier. I'm thankful for my sister who watched V while me and hubs went out. It wasn't an easy task to put up with her relentless crying. :) I'm also thankful I've spent a lot of time with my irl girlfriends the past few weeks. It's been a long time since we've had the opportunity to all get together.

  2. Great list! My son had eczema too when he was a baby. New GFC follower...would love for you to follow back :)

  3. "When she told me what her prayer was, I was shocked to learn that it was the same thing that I had been praying to God." That's awesome! God is great & all things are possible through him ♥. I hope you get through whatever it is you are going through at the moment. ♥
