Thankful Thursday

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virutes.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

~I have so many things to be thankful for, but the one that stands out every week is my amazing husband!! He is the most wonderful man. I was home with a migraine on Monday and he took care of me all day...when I wasn't sleeping. :) He made sure I didn't have to worry about Sam or anything else. He is the dearest man I know.

~I've mentioned them before, but my in-laws are truly wonderful. They hosted a reception for us Saturday to celebrate our wedding. It was perfect. Linda had the house decorated beautifully and everything was darling. We had a great time with friends and family. Thank you, Joe and Linda for a wonderful evening. I love you both. Here's a pic from the's not that great, but it gives you an idea. I'll post more when I have time

~ I'm extremely thankful all of the tests my sister has had run over the past several moths are coming back ok. Hopefully, after this last one, she'll get the all clear. It may take her a while to feel better, but at least we will know it's not anything life threatening. She is such an amazing mom and I am so thankful for her and her love for Cooper. He was 6 months old this week. How time truly does fly. Oh how I miss him since our visit home in December.

~I talked to my mom tonight. Have I mentioned how truly blessed I am to have my mom as my friend?!! She knows just what to say at just the right time. I am thankful that my cell phone company has free nights and weekends! ha! Otherwise I'd spend a fortune in phone calls. We talk just about everyday...and sometimes more than once a day. Thanks for being my mom and my friend! I love you!

~I'm thankful tomorrow is Friday!! Did I mention that already? Ha! It's been a long week. We are getting together with some friends tomorrow night so that should be fun.

~Barry's brother Jay and his wife Amy have given us the most wonderful wedding/Christmas gift. A trip to Florida!! We leave next Thursday morning!!! We just can't wait to get away and spend some time together. It's seems as if we have been on the go since we got married. The holidays were all wonderful, but very busy. This will be a nice chance for us to spend some time alone relaxing. We are truly looking forward to it. Thank you sooooo very much, Jay and Amy. We love you guys and can't wait to show you lots of pictures.

Have a great weekend everyone!
