What I am Thankful For





What I am Thankful for is my family. I love them all very much and I Thank God for them every day, however the jury is still out on the puppy! ( He ate my carpet, two new bras and two pairs of new high heels!) I often think especially when times are not going so good, why I decided to have children, and got married too. Sometimes things are not so great, when the kids were little and of course we were young when we got married( I was 20) he was (23). We had Tami when I was 23. David Jr. at 25, I didn't have a clue ( even with all my babysitting experience, did I know what was to happen). It has been a road of ups and downs, pain, joy, heartache , surprise, disappointment, accomplishments, achievements, sorrow, and WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING!!!!!!!!!! But most of all pure and simple LOVE.
You know that 24 years of marriage, a supportive husband, two wonderful kids, a puppy, and our families and friends that supports us Through thick and thin, I know what it is to be THANKFUL! Hope you all stop, think, rejoice and know things are not always easy, but that is what life is all about. God only gives us what we can handle, even if we do not realize it at the time.

Thankfully,

Dona

I am thankful for dear friends like you. Yes, life will throw you a curve ball every now and then. It's good to know that there is always someone around to pick you up, give you hell, or just a hug whenever you need it.

Bless you and your family this Thanksgiving season.

Love, Connie

Hi Dona,

Looks like my guys - riding is a huge part of life in my house. You are right, we don't always realize it at the time but God has a perfect plan for us and sometimes when he's setting up the details it's hard to understand! That puppy sounds like a challenge indeed!

Hugs,
Dena

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa.

That is a sweet post. I can sure identify with puppy and child rearing issues, but what would our lives be without them?
