A time to be thankful....

I got this idea from my friend Kiersti ... Since it is Thanksgiving, here are a few things I am thankful for ....

I am thankful for my kids, Bryson and Kira have changed me in ways that I would have never thought possible. They have and continue to teach me unconditional love, they show me that it is the most simplest things in life that make us happy. The patience and determination I have been blessed with because of them has gotten me through some very hard trials.

I am thankful for my sister, Laini. In the past few months she has shown me incredible strength, probably in ways she doesn't even realize. I am thankful for her funny tangents, and of course our little sisterly "quirks".

I am thankful for my Mom who has done a lot for not only me but our whole family, when sometimes it would have been easier to give up.

I am thankful for Julie, she is my favorite person and saving grace. She is one of the most AMAZING individuals I have ever encountered in my life. Her heart is pure. She is the most GIVING person but the best part of her is that she is TRUE, true to you, true to herself! And not to mention, how many people take care of your kids as you would?!?!

I am thankful for Jeremy and Cherise, I am so blessed to have the relationship I do with them. For any of you that have "ex's" or "baby parent" (ha ha) issues to deal with know what I mean. They both are so caring not only for my son but for Kira and myself as well.

I am thankful for the rest of my friends and family. WE all need each other for some purpose or another. Thank you for your love and support.

And last but not least I am thankful for my health. My life and my children's lives's depends on it.

So sweet. You have always been good at expressing your feelings. I am glad you are well too...I must have missed the last 10 or so years of your life...for that I am sad. We had so much fun in Jr High. I was eating gummi strawberries with my boys the other day, and it made me think of you and English with Miss Rounds. Love ya and miss ya! Happy Thanksgiving.

Wow, that was amazing. Thank you so much for the things you said about us that was so sweet of you to even think of us and include us in that wonderful post! I hope you know we feel exactly the same about you and wouldn't change anything about our relationship EVER!!! (except maybe for you to CALL ME when you need someone to watch Kira too!!!)
