I am thankful….
for my amazing family (beyond my hubby, Bizz & BooBoo)
I am thankful for my parents – who have always loved me for who I am and encouraged me to live my life and be happy, no matter what paths it may lead and where it may take me! I am so grateful to live close to them and have them still be such a regular part of my life!
I am thankful for my sister – my friend. With a 7 year age gap between us, my sister and I were long distance sisters and friends for a long time as I grew up. But now, we live closer to each other and I am so grateful to the friend, amazing Auntie, mud race partner, fashion consultant, and pizza, perogie & venison loving sister that I have!
I am thankful for my brother. Again with a large age gap there has been more time my brother and I have been apart then together throughout our lives. But my brother is one of those people who I know if I ever needed something – he would be there for me, without a doubt, without a second thought, without question. He inspires me with his deep involvement in the lives of his children and his dedication to his family.
I am thankful for my second parents (I guess most people call them in-laws). I truly have the most amazing parents in-law that a girl could ever ask for. From the moment I met them they treated me like family (along with the joking and loving). They are some of the most generous & kind people, parents and grandparents that I know. When I hear others talking about “dreading” a day with their in-laws or a visit with them I can’t help but always think quietly to myself of how very lucky I am!
