With Thanks

I have so many things to be thankful for. I am so thankful for my wonderful husband. He is the kind of man every woman should have and a wonderful father. You can see that in the way the kids light up when he is home. I am thankful that he has a job in this economy and I am thankful for the time I have had with my children. I am also very thankful for unemployment that has kept us floating these last six months.

I am so thankful for my friends and family. In paticular my wonderful sisters who keep me feeling young. For Kimmie who shows me how to be more Christlike with her her selflessness and the way she gives so much of herself to others without expecting anything in return. For Aunt Rhonnie who is always there with love and advise and an ear to listen. For Becky who is such a strong woman and is teaching me to be the same. For Dianne who is the Thelma to my Louise and who is always there to talk, sometimes for hours a day. I would do anything for you guys. For the rest of my family and friends who have supported us so much these past couple of years.

I am so thankful for my church family and the way I always feel at home when I am with them. I am so thankful for each of my children who bless me in so many different ways. I am thankful to our family counselor who has made such a difference in our family and is cementing all of us together. Most of all I am thankful to my Savior who loves me unconditionally in a way I could never earn. I am thankful for His mercy and the lessons he teaches me everyday. So much to be thankful for, I am truly blessed.
