#6 - What I am truly Thankful for...

I can't think of anything more important to me then,

I thank God (everyday), that He has given me a loving husband and beautiful children. Our children have grown up as happy adults and are successful at what they do and are.

Our son,Todd, lives about an hour away from door to door (ours to theirs). We don't see them as much as I would like. Both Todd and Stephanie (his wife of two years), have busy lives with work and going back to school for their Masters degrees in Biology.

Our daughter, Kimmy, has been married to Mark for almost five years. I feel very fortunate to have a son-in-law who loves our daughter so much and works hard to provide for his family. Kimmy has the enormous job of nurturing and teaching their two children on a daily bases. They have blessed us with Lulu and Levi, are our two grandchildren. I love being a Grandma or "Gammie", as Lulu calls me.

I've been married to Tom for almost 31 years. It doesn't seem like that long ago, we walked down the isle. God has given us so many blessing through the years. Our lives has been good. Thank you Tom for loving me and being there when ever I needed you.

Our Family is growing and I am so happy for each and everyone of them!

Over the past few weeks, I have shared just a few of the things that I'm thankful for. Today, I saved best for last!

So this Thanksgiving, I pray that you spend sometime with the ones you love. Just like we will be doing.

Happy Thanksgiving !!

  4. Mother,
    I'm THANKFUL for our relationship. Growing up you were my mother but now you are not only that you are my best friend. We are looking forward to Thanksgiving. Love you!

    Love Kimmy

  5. What a sweet post! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Christine...enjoy your family!

  6. It is a privilege to meet your family. You are right when you stated that you saved the best for last. What a good looking group of people! You are married 31 years and we are married for 34 years. Great post!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  7. You have a beautiful family and home. I may have already told you that. I take meds that cause me to have a poor memory. Happy Thanksgiving, Doylene

  8. Happy Thanksgiving!!! I trust your day will be VERY special!

    We too are so very thankful for our kiddos and extended family...we are spending time with ALL today and are grateful for a day/weekend FREE from school, work, and the grind of daily business!!!

  9. I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!


  10. I am thinking that the reason your children are so happy and successfull is that they were raised and nurtured by very loving parents. Job well done!

  11. Hey Christine, good to hear from you. I will keep you all posted on my job status.

    It'll just be good to feel like I belong, though they have done an excellent job of making me feel at home.

    Maybe something will come up with more hours or closer to home, but for now getting my seniority date will be good. I love it at this school though so it would be nice to get more hours there.

    Your family is lovely and I am thankful for my family too.

    Have a nice weekend,
