Happy Tuesday! I'm linking up with Bex at Reading and Writing Redhead to share what I'm thankful for. This has been quite a year...a TON of changes: new job, new house, new baby...lots to be thankful for!
I've had ups and downs, like everyone. I'd have to say the thing I am MOST thankful for this year is that while I was diagnosed with an IBD (irritable bowel disease) called ulcerative colitis, I am fortunate in that I don't have to take medicine to control it. I'm about 20 weeks pregnant and I was just diagnosed. I was told at first that medicine might be a necessary step and it was devastating to hear that. I won't even take Tylenol while I'm pregnant, I get that worried about how things affect my baby. So to take a serious medication (even if they say it is "safe") was terrifying to me. I prayed and prayed and fortunately God came through! I can control my symptoms through diet and I am SO thankful for that. It gives me peace of mind that I'm not harming baby number two and that is all I can ask for right now. :)
I'm also VERY thankful for the opportunity to blog and create for TpT and educators worldwide. Being a work at home mom is not easy but it beats being gone 12 hours a day like I was last year. I LOVE teaching, it is truly a passion of mine, but it is so hard to be away from my little one for 12 hours a day, five days a week. I look forward to going back as soon as my youngest is in preschool. But until then it's going to be homeschooling/mommying/teacherpreneuring (is that a word?) at home. I'm loving every second and I am so thankful for the opportunity!!
I want to give a shout out to some new blogging buddies! We will be hosting a huge event soon!! Here's a preview:
