Thankful... Day 2

1. Today I am thankful for all of my parents but I want to say a special thanks to this guy. This is Poppy with A#1. Poppy is the greatest Poppy ever and the kindness and love he shows our kids just always amazes me! You can always tell just how much it means to our kids as well by the way they respond to him. Poppy will take time out of his day to call and check on the kids when they are sick, even if my mom has already told him how they are. Poppy will take a day off of work to make a special trip to L U for a chance to watch A#1 fly or even just to go up and visit him. He will go watch as many soccer and basketball games as he can for the girls just because he wants to see them. He will make a noise maker with an empty milk jug and rocks for A#2 to take to the high school football game and encourage her to be as loud as she can with it and laugh about the memory of it for years to come. He is the best Poppy!! and we are all so thankful for him.

2. I am thankful that as our kids are growing, they are finding things that they love about life. A#2 has really been doing well with her riding and she LOVES it!!!!
3. I am thankful that our girls are watching their brother live his dream at college and are so encouraged by him that they are even talking about when they go to Liberty one day. I know it's years away but what a witness their brother is for them. A#3 says she is going to go there and play soccer. Wouldn't that be awesome?!!!!

4. I am thankful for Godly women that are such an example to me.

5. And last but not least.... I am thankful that when I come downstairs in the morning, hubby has the coffee ready!! Thanks W.B.!! Little things mean a whole lot!

Hey! Thanks for your comment! Right now we live in the Richmond area, but we're looking to possibly move to Roanoke after the hubs graduates in May. If you have any insider tips or suggestions on Roanoke, let me know :) It was my first time in Roanoke and I kinda liked it. So we'll see how the job opportunities go.
Happy Holidays!
