I have an awesome husband. He works so hard and sacrifices much to make a living that allows our family to have a sweet home in an amazing location. The picture above was taken out my back door a couple evenings ago. This beauty is literally right outside my door. And Glenn has volunteered to spend MANY HOURS each week commuting so our family can enjoy this. He is awesomel!
I have 4 spectacular kids. Drew and Zac are both attending community college right now. They're totally the youngest in their classes (since Drew should be a HS Senior and Zac a Junior), but both are academically at the top of their classes. As much as I appreciate that, I'm even happier to know they're both a great example to their classmates. And they, along with Matt, willingly get up before 6AM 5 days a week to attend Seminary. Because of the effort my boys put into developing their talents, our home is filled with music... I love hearing them playing the piano, keyboard or guitar (the drums are ok, too, it's just not the same). As I sit here typing, Matt's working on some of his drawing on the computer. I'm always impressed at his creations and especially appreciate the times he asks Sarah what she wants him to draw... he is so considerate of her. Sarah is our ray of sunshine. She can be a bit on the sassy side sometimes, but is quick to give hugs and tell us she loves us. She even asked Drew to marry her this last week. [Don't worry, we're explaining why that can't happen.] Being the mom to these 4 exceptional individuals has enriched my life beyond measure.
Glenn, the kids and I are all healthy... an immeasurable blessing. We live in a land of unparalleled freedom, thanks to the sacrifices of family friends and people we don't even know. I live in a time of technological wonders and benefit daily from their application in my life. I have the gospel of Jesus Christ reminding me always of how much I have to be grateful for and what's truly important.
Life is beautiful and I am grateful.
