After a great weekend with my mom and step-dad, I feel like I have a lot to be thankful for.
Mom: I am so thankful for your unending love and support. You are truly my hero and I am so glad to have you. When I think about how young Nanny was when she left us, it makes me so sad that you didn’t have your mom for very long, and I hope I never have to experience that.
Husband: I am so thankful for how patient you are when I am running late, and I am very impressed by how strong you are to not scratch your poison ivy. Thank you for wearing long sleeves even though you don’t want to, so that I don’t get poison ivy too.
Johnny: Thank you for always having a sense of humor, and thank you for being a great support to mom. And thanks for not killing Freddy.
Erin: THANK YOU FOR BEING PREGNANT. Actually, thanks to God for that one. I am so excited for you, and I could seriously cry just thinking about how much you deserve this baby and how loved he/she will be.
Trinity Pres: Thanks for having a congregation full of nice people who love Jesus.
Charlottesville Young Life: Thanks for the awesome dinner at Boar’s Head, and thanks for reminding me how much I love Young Life and what it’s doing for kids in the community. To the 60 plus volunteer leaders in the Charlottesville area: Thank you for being awesome and for giving your time and your hearts to God by loving on high schoolers, middle schoolers, Capernaum kids, and teen moms.
