Blessings




Thank you, Lord, for everything you've shown me.
For everything you've given me to touch, smell, hear, feel, and taste.
Thank you for experiences like Manzanillo, people like Anne, and pets like Velvet.
Thank you for mountains, and sunshine, and snow, and rocks, and fresh-water streams.
Thank you for second chances, and third chances, and fourth chances...


Thank you for the love of my life.
Mi amor, mon amour, meine Liebe.
Thank you that he is so darn perfect for me.
Thank you for bringing us together to love one another.
Thank you for letting that love be grounded in you.



Thank you for the chubby legs and tiny feet of a baby girl.
Thank you for giving me enough love for her, and allowing that love to change every day.
Thank you for kisses from little lips.
For high fives, zerberts, and a baby's ability to listen to the same Children's Bible Songs CD a thousand times and STILL not tire of it.
Thank you for molding me into your image of mom and wife.

I will try my best not to take it for granted.

My dear sweet Katie, I am so proud of you and all that you've done. I'm happy that you have inner peace in your life, and a family to be proud of. You're a great inspiration for Sophia. I love you. Mom
