I've Got Friends In All The Right Places

Hey all! How's everyone doing? Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? It's only a day away! Crazy how the time flies, huh? Well, I'm sort of ready. I've been so busy this week running errands and trying to get ready for Turkey Day. Right now, I'm at a car wash...really bad idea. Looks like everyone had the same idea as me!

Lots and lots of people. I couldn't get all the people waiting.
Great time to catch up on the days I've missed posting on my blog! Oh and having a delicious Kale, cranberry, blueberry, pecan, and feta cheese salad. I already had two people asking me what I was eating and they said they were going to try it. Inspiring people everywhere I go and I didn't even know it. Makes me feel pretty good!

I guess the last time I posted something was on Sunday. That's a long time. With Thanksgiving just a day away, I needed to get a lot of things ready. I had an appointment to go see my fertility doctor, Dr Griffith. He wanted to talk to me about my mid term pregnancy loss that happened 6 weeks ago. Wow, I can't believe it's been 6 weeks. It feels like just yesterday. Still hurts as much at it that day. Anyways, he wanted to get some blood work done to see if it was something other than my incompetent cervix (I will have to write about that on a different post) that cause me to have to deliver Jamieson early.

19 vials of blood had to be drawn. At this point, needles do not scare me...
He will have the results in three weeks and we will start back on our fertility treatments in January. Actually, a few days before my birthday (January 7th, I'll turn 30!). I love that my doctor and his staff cares so much about my health, emotionally and physically. They are so amazing at what they do. Like I've said in one of my previous posts, he didn't and hasn't given up on us. I'm really blessed to have him in my life.

The infertility journey leaves you with a lot of battle wounds, some big and some small.

Also, on Monday, J and I had our very dear friend's over for dinner. It was my friend's parents and her sister visiting from Colorado. They are like family to me. My friend couldn't make it down this time and we missed having her here with us, but we had an awesome time with her family. J grilled some steak and her sister made a delicious apple streusel pie (I think that's what it was).

I love the Hyten family (Chief loved Marcea)

Yesterday, I started helping out at my mother and father in law's church pantry. They needed someone who can help translate english to the spanish speaking families. It wasn't as busy as I thought it would be, but it's probably because of the holidays, a lot of families were probably out of town. It was such an eye opener for me talking to a few of the families that come to get help with groceries. Some families only have one main provider for the entire household and it amazes me just how they can survive with very little. It made me realize just how blessed I am to have what I have. I am not in need of anything at all. All of the things I have are just wants. These people are so thankful to just get a few bags of groceries. It won't be the last time that I go and help out at the church pantry.

Well, that's pretty much all I have from the past two days. I probably won't be posting anything tomorrow because I'll be spending it with my loved ones. I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. Give thanks to the Lord for all the blessings you have. Remember to tell your family, friends, and pets just how much you love them and give them a big ol' hug. God bless!!!
