Gratitude Challenge

Today on November 4, 2011 I am very thankful for my family. My husband, who works so hard to provide for us, but mostly he is so supportive in our homeschool venture, and to my needs. He truly completes me.


This picture seems like it was taken only yesterday, though it was taken on our Wedding day 13 years ago.

My daughter, who has always been the joy of my life from the time she was born. Though we have watched her go through some very difficult times in her life and times when she has made some poor choices, she is still my first born and very dear to my heart.


Her family, including our grandson, Jr.

My son, who has been independent from day one, yet always remained a little bit of a mommy’s boy. I am so proud of all that he has accomplished in his young years. He has turned in one fine young man.


My son, Selena and myself a year ago.

Then there is our sweet little Selena. Her curiosity for life, love of learning, and her constant desire to imitate me brings such happiness and excitement to my life.


Selena enjoying her new world.

Of course there are my three brothers, that I love dearly. They have always been a huge part of my life and always will be. My sister, though she is no longer with me, was a great foundation for me in my younger years. Then of course my Mom and Dad who worked so hard all their adult lives to provide a warm home and all that we needed.

My list could go on, but I will just say that with 14 Aunts and Uncles, truly provided many cousins. Then of course there are my Grandparents who I love and miss dearly as well.
