Grateful days 23-25

Ok so day 22 was yams. I am grateful for my grandma Lucile who turned them into one of my favorite foods,

Day 23- I am grateful for my parents who celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary this week. Thanks for staying together even when it wasn't easy and for teaching me what a real marriage looks like, the work it takes to make it last, and teaching me the beauty and love of true commitment.

Day 24 - I am thankful for my husbands small business and those who shop at our stores. Your patronage feeds my family and the families of the 25 or so others that we employ. Thank you for supporting small businesses!

Day 25- I am thankful for all of you who sent us angels for our Camille angel tree. I feel so loved every year when I unpack these precious angels to put on her tree. I know she is near tonight. Noble called every angel ornament a sister ornament. Thank you for giving me a physical way to bring my baby home for Christmas!

I found your blog 3 years ago during your auction for Emily Jones. While I don't keep up with your blog daily/weekly, there are moments when I find myself thinking about you and Camille and I pop in to see how things have been. I think it's so wonderful how many people you've reached out to help. You've taken one of the hardest trials that can be faced in this life, and used what you've learned to bless the lives of others. I'm sure Camille is so, SO proud of you.
