Today I’m thankful….

I'm thankful for all the shitty nappies I've had to change, because with them nappies I got 3 beautiful, crazy kids. They drive me insane most days and nights 😂 but I wouldn't change them for the world.

I'm thankful, I got to be a mother. Even on my very worst days, them 3 beautiful creatures I created have my back. They can make you feel like the most amazing person, with a laugh or a smile. Or if your lucky even a back rub while your throwing up.

I'm thankful for Matthew's, ex-wife for having an affair, because if she didn't I wouldn't of got him. Hey every cloud has a silver lining. He is my rock and has changed our lives for the better. He is more himself now, than he's even been, he's happy and perfect.

I'm thankful for all the bad shit that's happened in my life, because without it I wouldn't be who I am TODAY! Even though at the time it felt like the whole world was against me, it wasn't truly against me, just putting me on a path to the life I deserved.

I'm thankful for my mother, she, herself drives me insane with always picking at things. Yet I'm grateful for her, for giving me my beautiful brown eyes and youthful complexion. For also making sure I have morals and standards, and dignity. Thankful that she put up with my crazy ass growing up, when I had anxiety attacks at god knows what time during the night.

I'm thankful for waking up every morning, thankful that I have 3 beautiful rugrats running riot. Thankful I have the most amazing husband to spend my life with. Thankful that I come from the most dysfunctional family known to mankind.

Everyone should be thankful for what you have, because one day it will all be gone. It will all just be a memory..

So embrace the glorious mess that you are, and be thankful for every step you took to get where you are!

  1. Love this! I saw a post on Facebook yesterday that made me SO grateful for everything I have. Had a tough couple of years, so it’s always nice to get a little slap on the backside to bring you back to reality. I particularly love how your soon to be husband’s ex-wife cheated on him, meaning you ended up with him! Made me titter a little! haha Good for you!

    1. Haha, it’s a weird thing to be thankful for his ex wife cheating, but his life is so much better now. Every cloud has a silver lining as they say

  2. This is such a lovely post. It’s made me stop and think. Today I am grateful to the two different people who gave me a nice compliment about how I’m trying to learn portuguese. It’s boosted my confidence and is so lovely to hear that people are appreciating my efforts x
