My Thankful Thursday:
I am thankful to be blessed with an amazing family and friends. Those that truly matter in our lives have been there for us through thick and thin. Understanding the heartaches and the triumphs...experiencing what we have to go through and have been through. Unconditional love.
I am thankful for my extremely hard working husband and best friend. He has been through more than most, works 16-18 hour days to meet deadlines, works in a mouse/ant and bug infested garage that has flooding and mold...with an occasional power outage at times...but it doesn't get him down. He has worked hard and yet has a very laid back attitude. He does random acts of kindness towards people and has a very strong faith. He is an awesome guy...and he's a twin too...I thank God for him daily.
Thankful for all my beautiful children. Thankful that God let me have each and every one ov them...including the ones that werent here on earth with us for too long. Each one of them has a very unique personality yet all so awesome. They are kind, polite (but do have their moments), good natured kids who don't complain about things. They love to be around all their aunts, uncles and cousins...they live for birthdays for this very reason. They understand the problems and hospital stays with Kenny and just go with the flow. Heck, my son Tony even did the dishes and cleaned the kitchen for me last night...I am so thankful for that!
I am thankful that (little)Tony is into drums, guitar and singing. Thankful that Taylor and Morgan are becoming beautiful young ladies who love fashion, drawing and becoming pre-teens. I am thankful that Sydnie and Kayleigh are no longer little toddlers (but I really miss it though), and that they have strong yet sweet personalities. I am thankful for Kenny for everything he has been through..for showing everyone that even the smallest of things are miracles...I am thankful that he is finally starting to understand commands like "go get a diaper" and "do your funny walk". I just love that! I am thankful for Gina for being Gina. For being a sweet and loving baby who gives the best hugs and is well beyond her years. I am thankful for how much she is helping Kenny and how close they are.
I am also thankful for the end of summer...when the nights are cooler and the feeling of wanting to light pumpkin spice and cinnamon candles.
Thankful for classical music that helps me relax.
