A Month Of Thankfulness - Days 13-19
I am a week behind on my thankful posts. Not that I am not thankful but that I was sick most of the week last week and took a few days off to recuperate and then immediately went out of town.
Day 13 - I am thankful for the military men and women who serve our country. We have some wonderful friends and family that make this sacrifice daily. No thanks are ever enough.
Day 14 - I am thankful for Stan's family. When we married 30 years ago, I inherited a new family. I am thankful for each and everyone of them.
Day 15 - I am thankful for NyQuil. :) Yes, that trusty friend helped me rest when I was so congested and miserable.
Day 16 - I am thankful for old friends. Sometimes seasons of life may move you away from one another but the foundation of friendship remains.
Day 17 - I am thankful for my daughter's boyfriend, Rob. He not only loves our daughter but is always so welcoming to Stan and me. We have shared many good times over the last 2 1/2 years and I look forward to many more. I love him like a son and am so thankful for his kind and considerate heart.
Day 18 - I am thankful for second chances.
Day 19 - I am thankful for my son and daughter's friendship with one another.
