I am so thankful

Today I had to miss Anna's softball game. I am over the initial shock and sadness of missing it. She did great. The team did great. And I was not there. I was off chasing a buck. Could have done with out the money. I don't want to miss again. I won't miss again. To find the positive in the midst of my sadness makes it all the more worthwhile. I have realized how blessed I am that I don't have to miss things. That I don't have to miss out on so many of their days. Nick does. He does so I don't have to. And I am so thankful for him. I am so blessed to be able to stay at home with my kids. May I never lose sight of that and my I never take that for granted. Thank you honey.

Yesterday you told me how many kids you wanted to have one day Anna. You said that you wanted 4 boys. You said that they would live in one room on two sets of bunk beds. You also told Addie that they would not be living at my house that they would live in your house that you would have one day. That cut deep! You said that one would be named Brandon and the other Lucas. I can't remember the other 2. So sweet to here your big plans for the future. I love you my sweet Ann.

Addie you made me laugh when I was complaining about the price of boiled peanuts. I told your daddy they were $5 and that was way too high. And you told me that wasn't high because 5 is not a high number. You are learning so much and getting so grown up on me! I love you sweet Angel!
