grateful

Hey there mamas!  Hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving with family and friends.  We are so grateful you are a reader and a part of our little online community here at A Mama Collective.  If you follow us on Instagram, you know Jenna and I have been participating in the #30daysofthanksgiving and #gratefulnovember series.  Basically you just post a picture each day of what you are thankful for.  I really enjoyed it, and hope to get it going as a way to keep my focus on gratitude!  Here is a little wrap up in case you missed it.

Day 1: You found your thumb. I went to wake you up and you just wanted to keep sleeping. You are the sweetest, my love. ~Jenna

Day 3: Incredibly grateful to @life_edited for her vulnerability about her anxiety. It helped me understand what my husband goes through every day. Grateful that she opened my eyes to that, which I wish I could take away. ~Jenna
