Giving Thanks, Day 9: Family

Thoughtfully penned on November 9th, 2007 and generally concerning Fall Festivities, Family, Giving Thanks, Grandparents

I am thankful for our parents, siblings, and extended families.  I am thankful that Matt and I can still spend time with 7 of our 8 grandparents.  I am thankful that we enjoy being with our parents and siblings.  I am very grateful that I have wonderful in-laws whom I love and who welcomed me into the family with open arms.

I am thankful that Matt and I were both raised in Christian homes.  I am thankful for the legacy we’ve received from our parents and grandparents and that we are trying to pass on to our children.

I am thankful that our family is supportive, encouraging, and  loving.  I am thankful that we know we can turn to them any time we need them.  I am thankful that they love our child(ren) so much.

Today I am thankful for our family and the time we will get to spend with them in the coming weeks.

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. Your family is very thankful for Matt, and consider him part of our family, and feel he has been accepted as one of us. (even if at times he probably wishes he wasn’t):)
