THANKFUL THURSDAY...A very good friend of mine had this on her blog a month or so ago. Today while I was doing hair, I was thinking of many things that I am Thankful for. I had my cute friend Monica sitting in my chair, and just being in Monica's presence brings much happiness and love to my heart. I have had SO many great experiences recently, which when I take a moment and stop thinking about my everyday trials, I am comforted and brought to the realization that I have SO MANY WONDERFUL PEOPLE in my life. So, here I go...I am thankful for my parents. My mom has one of the most kindest hearts of anyone I know. My dad is a very simple, compassionate person. I am thankful for my two sisters Amy and Angela. I am lucky to live close to my sister Amy. She keeps my spirits up and is always ready for a fun time. After being with her, I am uplifted and ready to take life on. Ang lives in Cali, but is one of my most favorite people to talk to on the phone. She always puts a smile on my face. My cute neighbor Mindy. She is so upbeat and calm. She has helped me out so much. I am so blessed to have her for my neighbor. I must say that I am so lucky to live where I live. I LOVE all of my neighbors. Each one of them mean a lot to me. I am so thankful to be Bryns mom. Even though today Bryn and I have been butting heads, I am grateful for every moment I have with her, even the hard ones. I am thankful for Rick. When I hear him on the other end of the phone while he is at work and I can tell that he is enjoying his day. I am thankful for my little dog Zurich. He thinks that he is one of the kids. I am Thankful for many people who I haven't even mentioned. I truly know and feel that each person who is in my life is someone who is special to me. Thank you for being a part of my life.

I love you Brooke! I am lucky to live close to you too! I miss Ang.... how blessed we are as a family!

I love it when you and I get to spend time together. I wish we did it more often. Your laugh is contagious! You are a great example to me in many ways. Conner mentioned the other day after we went to the movie, "Mom.... I think it is so much fun when Brooke comes with us. I can tell you both like to around each other. Do you think when Stockton and I grow up, we will like to be around each other?" I had to laugh a little. I hope Conner and Stockton are as good of friends as we are.

Love you!
