Wow, we can finally settle down and relax in our temporary home for the holidays. It wasn't looking too good after we spent 2 weeks living like rednecks in an RV outside our house! After new carpet, new paint, and all our furniture out of storage we finally can breathe.
Thanksgiving is this week and we can't be more thankful for our lives and everything we have than right now. We are thankful for a roof over our heads. Thankful for each other...our beautiful family afar, friends who are always there for us when we need a hand or to chat. So thankful for the Church, Gospel, the promise of Eternity and our testimonies of it all. Thankful for food to eat each day, money in our pockets, and everything we need at our disposal. I am especially thankful for the choices my husband makes every day (and I know they're hard) to serve our country in this fine Navy. I love my 2 gorgeous children and how could I be anything less than thankful for their wonderful personalities and happiness they bring into our lives. If I had hand picked them I couldn't have done any better. I love the gift of life I was given and I plan to live it to the fullest and create a legacy my children can be thankful for.
