Blessed

We are so blessed to have such great friends and our very supportive families close. I have two friends that are just wonderful and are always making sure I am taken care of when Brian is at school. Tonight I got the treat of being able to cook with them ( I LOVE to cook for groups.... I hate to cook for 2:D) and I feel a little bad cause I totally took over... but they let me be bossy and I came home (well they brought me home) feeling blessed that i have two adopted sisters down here in Dallas. I am also blessed to be so close to Amy who lets me crash her house when Brian needs to study(or any other time really:D)... She is the best ya'll Leland gets into everything and she just smiles and loves on him, it makes me feel so welcome and loved I just want her to know it. I adore her kids who always seem excited to see me, even if I am grumpy they are there with hugs... I hope they know how much I love them. Seriously some of the best kids around.

I am even more blessed because shortly I will be living so close to them I will be able to see them more, and hang out more, and get to be a part of their growing up. I am hoping I can be a good example to those kids and let them know I love them even when I am hard on them... Poor Zeke probably gets it the worst, but its just cause I love him too darn much... Talk about a ray of sunshine... Zeke is that!

I am also finding myself very grateful for my wonderful in laws, who love me regardless of how messy my house is or how whiny I am. They are great and I am thankful for all they do for us. They have been very supportive and helpful with this whole home buying business and I love that. I feel like I can call them up and ask questions and they will spend whatever time they have answering them.

So as Thanksgiving approaches I just wanted to be thankful a little in advance for the wonderful family that I have surrounding me. Even the ones that are far away and i miss daily... I love them all and am grateful for the support and love we get from them!
