Just like my new background reads, "Life is Beautiful", it totally is!!! Not, always soo perfect and what really is ever perfect, but it is still beautiful!! I believe that everyday you should be soo thankful and blessed for what you do have in your life. If you are having a rough patch, then just pray, know and have faith that it will all get better! Everything in life happens for a reason, I don't always get why it happens this way, but God has a plan. Here are a few of the beautiful things that I am soo very thankful for...
~My BEAUTIFUL and HEALTHY little girls!! I LOVE them with ALL of my heart and I couldn't even imagine my life without them!! They melt my heart and make my world go 'round. I could be having the most aweful day and as soon as I see them and their sweet little faces, everything just seems ok. I LOVE their smiles, laughs, the cute little fat rolls on their legs, how sweet it sounds when Avery tells us "I love you!", their soft skin, sweet fingers and toes, the little noise they make when they sleep, their sleepy little faces right after they wake up, the way I can just make them feel better by picking them up when they are crying. I could seriously just go on forever!! I just cherish every moment with them and they are the MOST beautiful thing about my life :)
~The most AMAZING man and father!! Our love and friendship for one another is soo beautiful! He is my very best friend in the whole world and he just LOVES me soo much! He treats me with soo much respect and our relationship just gets better with age! We are going on 8 yrs. and they have been the best 8 yrs. ever. He is sweet, no one can make me laugh the way he does, I love how silly we can be, I love our nights where we will just lay in bed and have the most off the wall conversations and just laugh, I love how it seems like we can read each others minds, I love how he know just what to say to cheer me up and make me feel better. To watch him with the girls is one of the sweetest things. He loves our little girls soo much and is a total softee when it comes to them. He would do anything for our little girls and he is such an amazing father and I am soo blessed to have him!
~Mine and James's families are soo great and I love them all soo dearly!! We love spending time with our families and we wouldn't trade them for the world. They are all soooo AMAZING to our girls and I am soo thankful for that. They all have big hearts and we would be lost without them.
~I have some of the BEST and most BEAUTIFULLY HEARTED friends in the world!! Some I have known for a while and some I have become really close to in the past 6 months or so. These are all ppl. that I know I could go to if ever I needed something. I am EXTREMELY blessed to have somehow grown closer to Tiff. I think she is one of the most amazing ppl. that I have EVER met and she is such an inspiration to soo many ppl. out there. James, Zach and I all went to high school together and we met each other one night at the mall and then became friends thru myspace. Well, we have since just became great friends and I know that if there is anyone that would do anything within her power for the ppl. that she loves, it is Tiff. She is going thru a difficult journey of concieving a child and I wish for NOTHING more than for her dreams to come true. They would be the most amazing parents and I just don't get how things work sometimes!! I pray for her and her husband everynight and I just know one day it will happen. Tiff is the kind of person, that if I told her 1 of my girls is feeling bad, she writes me everyday until they are better to check on them. She is a total sweetie and I am soo blessed to have a great friend like her!!
~It may not seem BEAUTIFUL to some ppl. to have a job, a roof over your head, food on the table, running water and electricity, but to me is sooo is!! The way the economy is going right now and all of the ppl out there, that have lost their homes and jobs, it just makes me thankful for us having those things. Ya..I lost my job due to the economy, but I work a little part time for James's family and James has a great full time job with Fed-Ex and I am soo grateful!! I had a really hard time when I was let go from my job and I couldn't imagine if James lost his too!! I have talked to several ppl. that have lost their jobs after being with the company for over 20 yrs.!! Wow....how does that happen?!?! It is rough times and I am just soo glad for what we have!
