Happy early birthday to my beautiful mom who turns 70! We celebrated this Saturday in Des Moines at the Cheesecake Factory! I had a few gift from Hawaii to share with her! A little Kauai coffee and some jewelry. I also found this awesome framed photo that says it all.........."FAMILY"! Happy Birthday Mom!! We love you so very much! Have fun on your cruise!
And in other news....Jordan placed 4th in the State Special Olympics Bowling tournament in Des Moines this weekend. He was very excited and proud of his accomplishment. What to go Jord! :)
We got great news regarding my Uncle Don's test so I am grateful to God for answering our prayers. He and my Mom (his twin sister) will be celebrating their 70th birthday on the 28th! I am thankful for that as well. I can't seem to find a photo of him from our visit to California in 2008 but I have the next best thing............his favorite place to eat....IN-N-OUT burger!! It is now may favorite too. So I am grateful for IN-N-OUT burgers too!! :)
Well.... it's more like 15 days of gratitude for me (since I was out-of-town for the first two weeks) but The Story Matters is hosting this really cool celebration of being thankful! Sometimes the craziness of the everyday makes us forget what truly matters most. I like the idea of giving thanks for those things....for me it's family and friends! Post on your blog what your are grateful for and link it to the Story Matters (here).There are prizes to be won and all you have to do is post and link!!!
I am most thankful for these people....my parents and my children! We are not your ordinary crew but that is what I LOVE about us! We can laugh, cry, and argue but in the end we would do anything for each other....always. We will always be there for one another and love each other no matter what. I can't ask for more than that.
I am also grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to travel and see the beauty he has created in this world. I am also grateful for being able to capture that beauty and bring it home with me. It makes me profoundly happy!
