Hunter Cindy and Adam January 2009

These are my sweethearts!!

I am very thankful and feel so very blessed to have the privledge of being a wife and a mother. My husband Mark and I have been through a lot in our marriage, but we've done a lot of praying and working together for the benefit of our children and we're celebrating our 5th anniversary this year and I am so thankful. I am also thankful for our three beautiful children Hunter, Cindy and Adam. While at times motherhood can be exhausting, the rewards of it, I cannot even begin to describe. I love spending weekend winter days out sledding with my husband and kids and I love seeing the looks on our childrens faces when we go on vacations and they get to experience a new place or a new town and how excited they look. I love the privledge of getting to snuggle with my husband by our wood burning fireplace on a cold winter evening after our children are asleep. That is what Valentines day should be about, being thankful for all of the love that we have in our lives, it shouldn't be about candy or flowers. and trying to show how thankful we are to have that love in our lives EVERYDAY, not just one day out of the year. Even if someone doesn't have a spouse or a child, even the love of a pet, a friend or our parents is wonderful Happy Valentines day to all!
