Thanksgiving.....has taken on an entirely new meaning this year. This quite possibly could be the most important Thanksgiving I will ever have.
1) In an effort to give back and do something to show my gratitude to the universe for the gift I have been given, I donated my last remaining meds to a fellow sista in need. My first thought was to try an r-coup some of the thousands of dollars we spent on them. But that was fleeting, immediately I thought to donate. So I am keeping a close eye on my donation praying it brings her the same happiness and joy it did me.
2)Family-My brother has successfully made it through Navy boot camp and "A" School. He graduated with a 97.5 and was allowed to pick his station for the next 2 years. He is currently in Mirimar California, yes where they filmed Top Gun!!! He is doing better than I could have prayed for! And my sister, inspire3d by my brother and his accomplishment at 33 years of age has joined the Army. Yes (Tobes)you read that right. And because of her aptitude testing and schooling she already has, she is slated for a very high level position as well as potential Officer Candidate School. I am blown away and beyond words how proud I am of her. Her technical job title will be "Patriot Missle Launch Technician". So proud....which brings me to my next selfless act for this year. To support my Brother and Sister in their endeavours I am looking to join the USO or some kind of support for the military. They are doing their part I will do mine.
3) Last Thursday we found out we were having a BOY. It is what I have always dreamed of, imagined, longed for, wished for. I have always wanted a little boy to share with my husband, that when I looked into his his sweet young eyes I could see my husband staring back at me. Yes, the best Thanksgiving ever.
4)My wonderful support team, my dear friends. On Friday I received the sweetest package from one of my dearest friends. My first "baby" gifts. And the coolest Longhorns Onesie!!! Without their support through the last couple of years I am not sure where I would be. So thank you!!

18 Weeks 4 Days

So far so good! We find out the sex on Thursday. I cannot wait. It all still feels a bit surreal, but I am enjoying every minute of every day. I am blessed hat so far it has been un-eventful. And I think I made a decision this morning. That once we know the sex and I hit 20 weeks I am going to switch this over to a baby blog. And I would love for anyone that follows this blog to come on over to the next. And of course I understand if you do not. I am sending loads of baby dust out there to my sisters that need it and a special prayer that a happy ending is in sight!
See you back here on Thursday to see what we are having!!!
