I AM thankful today.
For so very many things...
First...for my precious parents who raised my two brothers and I in a wonderful, loving home ~
They are both in their early seventies and I am so very thankful they are happy and healthy and
ALWAYS supporting anything my husband Dennis and I choose to do...
if we decided to have a worm farm they would encourage and cheer us on!!!
Dennis' parents are so wonderful as well...
They've been married almost sixty years now
and are such precious grandparents to all of our babies!!!
I AM so very thankful for my sweet, dear husband.
TODAY, we have been married for thirty two years....THIRTY TWO YEARS!
I am so thankful for his love...for him being a wonderful father to our precious five sons...
for his patience for who I am and that I'm not conventional,
that I love to create and that it truly is my calling.
He is the voice of reason...he is my rock,
and he truly is my soul mate.
Thank you Lord for giving him to me!!!
I AM so very thankful for our five babies!!!
Five sons...what are the odds of having five boy babies???
Our fourth born, Chase just had his 22nd birthday this past Saturday too...
I remember when he was a newborn so clearly.
I finally was able to quit working full-time and be a stay-at-home mama.
I decided to breast feed Chase and after having three babies already
and they were each bottle-fed as I worked full-time.
I had the confidence and determination that it was going to happen no matter what!
Anyway, I can remember those midnight or later feedings.
Thinking that he would be my very last baby so I made my mind up
to cherish each and every moment...
and I would weep as I fed him.
I guess I had finally realized that newborn stage would be gone in a flash and
that I should cherish it,
each and every moment.
Little did I know that seven years later...
we would be blessed with our youngest son, Noah!
Our oldest son, Brent was fifteen...David was thirteen...Brad was eleven,
and little Chase was seven when we found out we would be having a new baby!
I have to share this with you...when we told the boys about the new baby coming...
David said, "are we going to be poor??"
Well sweet boy, maybe a little bit monetarily
but not as a family.
We have always, always been so rich.
Our boys love one another so much and will always, always help each other!!
Now our little Noah is going on sixteen years old....
how many times have we done this now????
Here's a pic I took yesterday after I gave him a haircut ~
I AM so very thankful for our precious grandbabies!!!
Our oldest son Brent married sweet Emily and has given us
two of the most wonderful grandchildren.
Our little Clara is turning four this coming Saturday, March 23rd!!!
I took this pic today after I gave her a sweet new haircut...
She knows she's adorable I think!!!
And our precious little Murray just turned 6 months old March 19th...
how fast the time flies by!
He's such sweet, happy baby boy ~
Well, thank you for reading through my little family post...

Have a wonderful Thursday my sweet friends,
