things I am thankful for....#8


I received a wonderful surprise yesterday at work.......T sent me some beautiful gerber daisies...ahh so sweet! T is gone on business for a few days this week, and of course this would be the week that I have had so me major ups and downs...well lets be honest.....downs! I do love my job but sometimes there is just a bit too much chatter.......and this weeks topic has been about babies, having babies carrying babies....everything baby........seriously it feels like I am swimming in a sea full of pregnant women and women with new babies.......

Now this post is not to make any women in my life with new babies feel bad...or sad or guilty...I love the new babies and soon to be babies that have arrived or will be here soon in my immediate circle....but as I have said before sometimes it just gets to be too much for me. It has been very overwhelming this week.....I guess the nature of my job is such that you hear all the good news that is floating around out there, and of course I always have a huge smile on my face so people can't wait to tell me about all their tales..........and this week I swear every client has a daughter or a niece or they themselves are expecting.....even a client that is in her late 40s who I never ever thought would blurt out that news.....well BAM yesterday she was sitting in my chair and said "guess what....we are having a baby in Sept"..........?!?!?!

So as you can see this is a bit of a pity party post......sometimes this stuff just rolls of my back and I am totally fine with all the news..and can easily and honestly tell people when they feel guilty about sharing their news with me, that it is fine.....don't feel bad, our situation is different blah blah blah......but this week I have had some stuff that has been hard to swallow...it has been super exhausting always being the person the has to make the other feel better, when I really just needed someone to make me feel better.......however in the end it was nothing that a good cry and some pretty gerber daisies couldn't help! lol

So that is my #8.....gerber daisies, but most of all having someone that cares that much in my life!

Thank God for great hubbies. They are the only ones that truly KNOW. I can't tell you how many times I wrote this same post...We are constantly surrounded by women who have or are having babies...It's so hard. Hang in there.

Awwww... how sweet - gerberas from your man! I love them too - the colors are always so vivid. I'm sorry to hear about how difficult it is being surrounded by baby fever - your time will come. One day you are going to hear from the adopotion agency and I can't wait for the day when you blog about it!

a wonderful, loving husband and a batch of gorgeous flowers sounds like two things to be thankful for!

i must be in the minority, when i get my hair done i like to just sit there quiet and enjoy it. but my stylist likes to chatter.
