It’s been an eventful year for Hilary Duff, but the former Lizzie McGuire star isn’t letting anything get her down.

The 28-year-old actress took to Instagram on Thursday, Nov. 26, to express her gratitude for her son, Luca, 3.

“#thankful everyday,” she captioned the artistic photo, in which Luca looks like he’s reaching out toward Duff in a meadow just as the sun is about to set on the horizon.

Duff and Luca’s father, hockey player Mike Comrie, split in January after four years of marriage, and the actress has spoken out about the healing process since.

“I don’t want to sound bitter because I’m definitely not,” she told the April issue of Cosmopolitan. “But I don’t know if people are meant to be together forever. Things happen over a long relationship that you can’t always fight. A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel great, but there are also huge sacrifices. I just always want to fight for happiness.”

Duff and Comrie, 34, have remained amicable for the sake of Luca, even reuniting for their son’s third birthday party.

In April, the actress joked to MYfms Valentine in the Morning that she had joined online dating community Tinder.

“I was sitting with my friends one night at the house, and we were joking around,” she explained. “In my life, I’ve always had really serious boyfriends, I’ve always met people through work, and I’ve never been on a blind date. So what’s the worst that’s gonna happen?”
