thankful for....

....my jeffrey. for loving me more than i feel i deserve. for having hands strong enough to build our home yet gentle enough to button tiny buttons on our baby girls dresses. for being so patient and giving. for making so many sacrifices to allow me to be able to stay home with our girls. for being the kind of husband that makes it so easy to love him more and more everyday.

.....my emme grace. for your sweet tender-heart that makes you hug me tight as i am crying reading your little house on the prarie books with you ;) for your always positive sun-shiny attitude. and for your out-of-the-blue hugs and kisses that i hope never ever stop.

....my rayley beth. for always making me laugh. for your sweet sideways smiles that make my heart happy. for telling me when you think i look beautiful. for your funny little artwork that always makes me smile. and for adoring your sisters so much.

...for our magpie. for all of the magic that you and that extra chromosome have brought into our lives. for your thousands of kisses. for reminding us to celebrate every little thing. for all the clapping followed by your sweet little voice saying 'ayyyy' or 'bob bob'...translates to 'good job' :) for teaching our family so much more about true compassion. for your sweet sunshine smiles. and for bringing so much into our lives that we did not know we were missing.

and i am most thankful for HIM, who has given me so many blessings.

yes, i am so very thankful....
