This picture was thanksgiving, four years ago. I was a mess. I posted a blog, you can read it here. That woman was a very intense shell – a result of self-induced “toxic positivity.” I was thankful for what I had, but also so angry at what I didn’t. Since then, I’ve had 4 kids. 4. I literally can’t believe it most of the time. We have six stockings. I’m so thankful for my family. Not just my kids, but everyone. I’m also so thankful for IVF. Without it, I’d be childless. I would’ve come to terms with it if I had to, but I’m glad I didn’t.
