Family


I am thankful for Family. The holidays are always a little hard for me since Paul and I are far away from all our family. Our family is a close knit family and it is wonderful. We are there for each other through the good and the bad- through the laughter (which happens lots while I am around) and through the tears. I am blessed with wonderful parents and in-laws who are still happily married and love the Lord. Theyare a great example to both Paul and myself. I have Awesome siblings who drop everything and do what they can when I need them. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful family- I love them all so dearly! God has made it possible for us to be with them this Thanksgiving- and I am Extremely Excited since it has been 4 years since I spent Thanksgiving with them!!!

Thank you GOD for the wonderful family you CHOOSE for me!

I was just thinking about that this morning...how we all would do anything for each other... so many families today don't have the closeness we have and I am so thankful that we do. We are also blessed to have been placed by God into a home with Christian parents.
Praise the Lord for family!
P.S. I am also thankful for a understanding, loving, wonderful husband.

I love my WHOLE family!

Thank you, Kathy. Sometimes we get so intent with the "forest" that we forget the "trees". Each and every one of you is dear to Mom and myself, and we can't imagine life without you.

Love, Dad
