Days 5-8

Monday, November 11, 2013
November has been busy, busy! I haven't had much time to blog. Can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here? Where has this year gone? Christmas is just around the corner. I can't wait to start decorating. At any rate, I need to catch up on my daily thanks. Here I go...

Day 5 
I am thankful for good health insurance. The past month or so has made it quite clear that not everyone can say this. While I am a supporter of the Affordable Care Act, I have to be honest in saying the roll-out has been a big, fat flop. I'm very thankful for the Adoption Tax Credit, which thanks to the ACA, became permanent, but there are far too many people out there with substandard health coverage.

Day 7
I am thankful for my husband. We've definitely had our ups and downs, but no one knows me like he does. Our marriage has been tested over and over again, and we continue to keep moving forward.

I like where we are today. It just stinks we had to take such a terrible road to get here.

Day 8
I am thankful for small towns. If you've never lived in a small town, it's probably hard to imagine what life is like. I'm sure big cities have a lot of the same within certain communities, but it's nice living in a place where everyone has a strong sense of pride for their community. What I love even more about my own small town is that so many people have a heart for adoption! It's nice to know Z will have a built-in support system among her peers.
