Little Victories

Today I'm just feeling ridiculously grateful for some things that may seem really strange to you. I have this outfit, a pair of brown herringbone trousers and a pink button up top that I bought about 3 years ago. It was a favorite outfit, the kind that made me feel stylish, professional, feminine and powerful.
Then I got pregnant... then I had an ileostomy bag...then I was underweight and it hung on me like a big ugly bag.
Today I wore that outfit to work, and it fit, and I looked in the mirror and recognized that same stylish professional feeling.

To top it all off, I got the results of my bloodwork back and my hemoglobin levels have returned to a good healthy level.
They are little victories, but for me they represent an immense sense of relief, wonder, and gratitude.


  1. That is awesome. I am so glad that you got to have that moment again. Glad to hear that the report came back great. It's always nice to see or hear about people that have triumph through things, it kinda keeps up going. It's is also nice to hear about small wins as you go through life. Congrats and God Bless.
