What the hell do I have to be thankful for?

It's amazing how having a child very, very rarely makes me down on myself or my life. Watching Iris every single day makes me realize I am an amazing mama, and I have an amazing life. I can't think of a single thing to not be thankful for, actually. I have a beautiful, healthy, vibrant daughter, who has brought my world infinite amounts of joy that I never, ever thought I could experience. She has given my life purpose, fulfillment, and another chance that I never thought I would have with her father. She has turned the three of us in to a family, our apartment in to a home, and everything else is just icing on the cake, as they say. Some days it feels like I'm pushing it, like there is a finite amount of luck each person has in the world and I am rapidly approaching the limit of mine.
