Today's Day of Gratitude is a little unorthodox, but it is completely true... I'm thankful for birth control. I absolutely love my kids, but I'm very happy with just the two of them. I'm not the kind of person that wants to have a huge family with 10 kids... or even 5 kids. Having some kind of control over that is so wonderful, even if it isn't foolproof. I'm thankful to live in this day in age, after these medical advances have already been made!
