Just a few things I am thankful for....

As I am sitting here at the computer typing, I hear the little ones running around the house getting ready to go outside to play.  They are so excited because Daddy is building a fire to roast hot dogs and marshmallows.  I am so thankful for such an amazing husband.  He is a wonderful man with a HUGE heart.  He loves his family and works very hard to provide for us.  I love you, Mike.
I am thankful for our children.  How many people today can say they have been blessed with 7 children?!  God has given us these blessings, and I pray that I have many years to enjoy them.  I love you, Andrew, Laura, Emily, Jacob, Rebekah, Luke, and Jonathan.
I am thankful for my parents and grandparents.  They have been Godly influences in my life.  They continue to be that influence to my children.  I love you, Daddy & Mama, Mr. Rex & Mrs. Deborah, Papa & Grandma Jean, Grandma Laura, and Grandma Marge. 
I am thankful for brothers and sisters.  I enjoy the time we are together.  I love you, Adam & Kara, Paul & Laura, Sarah, Larry & Katrina, Tracy & Lissa, and Ron & Amy.
I am also thankful for my nieces and nephews.  It is such a pleasure to watch them all grow up.  It is also a pleasure to repay the favors of all the LOUD toys my brothers and sisters bought for our kids. :o)  I love you, Hannah & Noah, Matthew, Aylissa & Olivia, Makenna & Logan, and Ian.
The one thing I am MOST thankful for is my Savior, Jesus Christ.  Without Him, I would be lost in sin.  He loved me so much that He died for my sins.  I pray I am the child He wants me to be.  I also pray that if you don't know Him as your Savior, you will ask Him in come into your life.
I pray you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  Love ya bunches!

I am MOST thankful for NOT having 7 children! LOL! Just kidding. (not really)

Thank you for continuing to share your life. I love to watch the kids growing, and hear of their adventures.

I AM thankful for having you in my world. Thanks!
