I'm supposed to be packing the van, but I had to escape from that work to put up a quick blog post. I'm glad Dan has NO clue how to do anything on the net except peek at ebay and look up info on the cars. I've had this blog for years and he hasn't a clue what the name of it is... anyway, he doesn't know I'm here instead of out there..
Anyway.. as we near the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I wanted to make a post. I want to tell everyone how much I care and Love them. I have so many awesome family and friends that mean so much to me.
I have my mom who laughs with me and we're able to just sit and chat and spend such great time together, obviously where would any of us be without loving moms? Sorry for making you feel guilty earlier Ma', I know you still love me. ;)
My wonderful in-laws are such awesome grandparents to my children (so are you Mom!! But this is their line).. J-bear can't wait to see you two. He has absolutely missed Grandma reading to him in her chair with a warm snuggle. He's missed Grandpa crawling on the floor to 'get him'. We've all missed you immensely and can't wait for you to return home. (Oh by the way, if there's dishes in the sink, DAN did it!!)
My big sis and my sisters-in-law, wow, I don't know what to say about them. God really knows and has a plan for you when he provides your life with these built in great friends he gives. I just love having all these big sisters (yeah, I'm the youngest in the group, but I'm glad that we all have a unique relationship despite our age differences).
I also have a Secret Sister to be Thankful for. She has spent the last year praying for my family. She has provided me with wonderful words of inspiration through out the year by the way of cards, notes, music and awesome gifts. I thank you for my basket of goodies I received Sunday. I enjoyed reading the card with the 'message' you gave about all the goodies. Thank you so much for all you have given.
And my dear sweet friend in Georgia with Baby A. I look forward to seeing you in January. I miss you so much. Know that when we're sitting around our table with our family and friends I'll be thinking of you, Chris and Baby A and all that we have to be thankful for this year. Baby A is such a dream come true, not only for you, but for me. To know my best friend has a wonderful baby girl in her life now, an absolute answer to prayer, just gives us so much more to hold in common and bond over. (I can't wait for our next coffee morning. 'Tis sad that we have to wait so long to enjoy it together).
Of course I won't forget Dan and my wonderful boys. Growing up I never imagined marrying and having 4 children (I always thought 6!!).. I didn't imagine they'd all be boys. I pray these boys grow to be strong men, strong in their faith. Grow to know their time here is limited, and this is not their home. Each of them gives something. D gives his time, he works hard to be the helper I need. B works hard to do things we need done. L is our love, he spreads so much love in all the cards, drawings and such that he creates to tell us how much he loves us. And J, he's our cutie right now, he says things when you need a smile or laugh. He loves you and tells us often. He also loves everyone he says. These boys are just so sweet and I am so Thankful for them.
And what's a post without pictures??
So Rejoice in the Lord Always...
And Love one another...
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Give Thanks in Everything, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
