A Guest Post From Hannah.

Back in June I wrote this post about being thankful and it's had such an amazing reaction, I have decided to ask my beautiful blogger friends to contribute their own 'Thankful' Post to carry on the theme. Today I have the beautiful Hannah Prescott with her own take on 'Being Thankful', please read, enjoy, comment and send her some love. Thank You Hannah...

There are a lot of things that we could and should be thankful for but I think the one thing we forget to be thankful the most for is our parents; with that being said my mother is what I’m most thankful for. 

My mom is unable to have kids due to having Endometriosis, a disorder where your tissues (normally found the womb lining and shed every month just like a normal period) grow outside of your uterus and had to get her lady bits removed. Like most, she was devastated but she moved on with her life, a life where she was given multiple children but were sadly taken away (the parents decided they wanted to actually be parents) after all the time she spent raising them, caring for them, bonding with them, they were ripped away from her and she promised herself she wouldn’t get attached to another child ever again.

Here’s where I come along. It was September of 1994, my mother (who knew she would be that at the time) just got out of the hospital from having stomach surgery and in another section of the hospital was baby Hannah. My ‘birth’ mother and my ‘adoptive’ mother both knew each other before this and ever since I left that hospital I was with my ‘adoptive’ mother basically 24/7. 9 months pass and I was officially adopted. A complete stranger who has been through a lot of pain took me in when my own family wouldn’t and I honestly can never ever express how thankful I am for that because I was raised healthy and loved.

I was a pain in the butt to put to bed and I didn’t like to be touched (back rubbed) because I never had that before but she stayed up all night until I finally fell asleep and got me use to the back rubs and cuddles. When I was sick she was the one to take me to the doctors, to cuddle me, and made sure I took my medicine. When she broke her arm, no one would play with me so she played with me despite being down an arm and in tremendous pain.
I could go on and on about all of things that she’s done for me, all the things that she sacrificed for me but, I think you can get the point and if you don’t then my point is: parents do a lot for us, they sacrifice a lot for us and sometimes I think we need to stop and think about it. Stop and just be thankful for all that they do despite the silly fights we sometimes have because in the end they truly do love you and care for you more than anything in the world. 

I am truly blessed and I don’t think I could ever find the words to explain how much I love my mother and how thankful I am for her. She is everything to me and I don’t know what I would do without her! 

Love, Sarah
