Each day we will be posting our readers “Pot of Gold”. At the end of the month, one of you will win a $25.00 Gift Card For all the details click here.
My pot of gold is my two little ones, Katherine(3) and Alexander(20months). Having had discovered after having my daughter that I had genetic blood conditions that could have caused her to not be born at all I counted myself lucky everyday that she was here. Then we she was 18months old and we found out we were having another baby we were both scared. Every month we had a specialist appointment and though I went there for blood reasons the doctor always gave me bad news about the growth of the new baby. I even went into labor early and didn’t know it and he was born 3 hours later via c-section. Now that they are running around, fighting, and yelling their lungs out I may have the times that I feel frustrated but all it takes is one random smile or a “Mommy I love you” that’s unprovoked and it makes my heart melt and my day seems better instantly.
My pot of gold is my wonderful husband. Last night I was stressing about my baby shower because things just weren’t coming together, and he just took the phone and made some calls for me. Then it all got smoothed over. He is such a sweetheart and does his best to keep me happy, especially when I get frustrated and stressed.
My Pot of Gold has to be my husband. He has been laid off 3 times in the past 4 years and is currently on workers compensation. Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he has tried to find ways to help out around the house (Take the burden off of me). He cleans, cooks, does laundry, does yard work, grocery shops (Well just to get stuff we don’t have coupons for. I haven’t quiet gotten him to properly use coupons..but I will get there). You name it, he does it!. It is a wonderful feeling after a long day at work to come home and the kids homework is completed, my house smells wonderful and dinner is on the table. He is a truly wonderful husband.
My pot of gold definitely has to be my husband and two daughters. We moved all the way across the country for my husband’s job, but that meant being far far away from our families. We really really miss our families, but are grateful we have each other.
My mini pot of gold is that my infant daught is starting to sleep through the night.
Keep your pot of gold moments coming!!! What are you grateful for?
