This is the second in my series of things I'm thankful for. This one is so dear to me, my family. My husband is such a caring person. He takes me out to eat several times a week and lets me watch shows I like on a regular basis. He was truly a good find and I am grateful for him.
I am also thankful for my children. Here we are on a riverboat at Disney World. That's Joe, the oldest, peeking through the window. He is an adult in his 30s now and so witty and smart. Little Ben is in his early 30s and he is so sweet and smart. Dawn, the baby, is now in her late 20s. She is hilariously funny, crafty, and well just Dawn.
How I recall the days of their youth when we went to the zoo or on bigger trips like Disney World. It's hard to leave that behind.
I am blessed to have three more: the spouses of my children. There's Rebekah, Ben's wife, who does many things well and Sandra, Joe's wife, who is a lovely singer and Dave, Dawn's husband, who is also a great singer. Now I also have Tyrus, Ben and Rebekah's son, who is totally and cute and adorable.
I'm just thinking that this Thanksgiving, I don't want to take any good thing for granted. Family, I love you. You mean so much to me. To my extended family, I say the same. I give thanks for the good thing of family in my life.
The other picture is from one of our Arizona trips. It is just about my favorite pic of the kids when they were younger.
