Feeling thankful...

I've spent the day cleaning and organizing my kids bedrooms, cleaning out closets, and taking outgrown clothes to goodwill. School starts on Wednesday and I wanted to set the house in order before the busyness of the school year ensues. As I was sorting through things I found some old letters my husband wrote to me years ago. As I read through them I felt the love wash over me. I couldn't believe I'd forgotten about these treasured words and I'm just feeling all lovey dovey now. I'm thankful for him and for our life together.

I took this pic with my phone the other night as we were falling asleep

These are my sweet grandparents. They were crazy about each other and were a wonderful example to me of real love.

We've had our ups and downs like any couple but their are definitely more ups.
Thank you to all who commented on my last post. Your thoughts mean so much to me. I'm thankful to you my dear blog friends.
