Grateful...

Today I am feeling so grateful.

I am grateful for my relationship with Jesus Christ. I never have to walk alone and that gives me strength and peace, even in the most difficult circumstances.

I am grateful for my Husband. He is so amazing. He works so hard to take care of us and I am so grateful for that. He has been busy working on another freelance book for awhile, so every evening he goes into his studio and works until late at night after working all day. He is so dedicated to what he does. I am so proud of him.

I am so grateful for Lex, Brody and Collin. They teach me new things everyday. I love seeing life through their eyes.

Lex is so strong, determined and protective, but he still needs special Mommy time and is so loving and sweet. He is so good at organizing his brothers into play, a natural leader!

Brody is just so laid back and happy go lucky. He is my little comedian and is always doing things to crack everyone up. He is going through a super clingy Mommy phase(which secretly I don't mind!), and freaks if I'm not near. He even sits through regular church services because he doesn't want to leave me. I know this won't last very long, so I'm trying to soak it all up, lol!

And Collin...Collin is incredibly curious, fearless and smart(they are all freakishly smart). He is also the most independent. I have to be careful, he is going to be the one that jumps off the roof because his brothers dared him too, ha ha! He is incredibly loving at the same time.

I am the luckiest, Wife and Mommy alive!

I am so grateful for my family and friends. We are surrounded by so much love...it leaves me speechless.

I am grateful for so many things, I could type all day. But we have cookies to bake and crafts to do, so I'm going to take this grateful heart and make more memories for which I can be grateful.

Happy 2010!

lovely... you are so lovely.. seeing things -- everything positively.. is amazing.. i am a little imbalanced and had been staying away from God for a while. I think i need to get back there.. loneliness has been bugging for a long time. i should have been habitual of it by now but still you know.. maybe early 20s traits... i don't know.. all those bad ideas coming to my mind.. i know im so damn lucky but all full of greed.. i think i need to slow down a bit
but -- you are really a sweet lady.. i am so much in love with you.. and the work of your husband is amazing.. this blog is great Amber.. !!
