Those of you who know me, who know me well, would probably not consider me the most positive of people. Or, the type of person who would be considered to look on the brighter side of things. I am old enough to know that I don't excel in this area, and I am also old enough to know I want, and strive, to be like this. I am so very thankful for my family today, and want to share a few things about them that make me thankful.
Nolan Levi...the poor sweet little boy whose daily endeavor is to make himself known...fighting tooth and nail for attention amongst the chaos his sisters bring to the house. I am thankful for his quiet, gentle, soft spirit. I am thankful for the progress he's making in his physical therapy. I am thankful for the way he looks at his daddy. I am thankful for the fact that he knows his sisters want to fawn all over him, and he allows it...happily even sometimes. I am thankful we have him.
Adelynne Noelle...our little rough houser. I am thankful for her personality...for those who know her, she's hilarious. I am thankful that amongst her roughness, she can be very soft and sweet. I am thankful that she tells me I'm "awesome." I'm thankful that most mornings, she calls for her daddy, even though she knows he's already at school. I am thankful for the cute and funny way she "bobblehead runs" down our hallway. I am thankful that she loves Nolan and is always looking to help him, wipe his spit up, and overall just being nibby about him. I am thankful that after her nap today, she snuggled up with me on the couch and fell asleep again, in my arms. Priceless!
Aubrey Lynne...our leader, our lover. Aubrey loves everyone...especially her dad. I am thankful for their friendship. I am thankful for her sweet tender spirit, who prays with me after she's been in trouble...who also talks about how awesome it is that her great papaw John is in heaven. I am thankful for the way she loves on Adelynne. I am thankful she's so excited to learn and do fun things. I am so thankful that she likes to help her momma...Lord knows I need it.
Brandon...my mate and best friend. There are so many things I am thankful for when it comes to Brandon. But mostly I am thankful for him as a spiritual leader and a dad who loves his kids.
I am thankful!
