(disclaimer: I meant to start my own Gratitude Challenge on November 1st, but as they say...there is not time like the present :) )
...the following living people who have touched my life:
Leonard and Ruthanne - my parents. Their love, encouragement, and support have helped me throughout the years.
Phyllis - my sister. We may not see eye to eye on things, but I do love her and admire her.
Dan - my brother. The best big brother anyone could have.
Scott - my husband. He is not only my husband, he is one of my best friends. I am grateful that he answered my email :)
Nickolas - my son. He enjoys sketching and can be quite imaginative. I am grateful to be his mother.
Samantha - my daughter. She enjoys arts and crafts and loves to get her brother involved in projects. I am grateful to be her mother.
Trisha - my best friend. I love my friend. She is amazing. I admire her and her family.
Annekke - My best friend's daughter. If she had not gone on a mission, I probably would not have made an effort to talk to missionaries.
Miss Amy and Miss Nancy - librarians. I am so grateful for the Canaan Town Library. The librarians are wonderful, helpful, and welcoming to all.
Hailey (Sister Mayle) and Alee (Sister Crook) - sister missionaries. These ladies are wonderful. They have touched many lives, including our family's.
Janine - friend. She has been able to fulfill a dream and I admire her strength and fortitude to carry out her dream.
Nephew, Nieces, Uncles, Aunts and Cousins...all extended family. There are so many to list. I am grateful for all of them. I love them and miss them.
Who are you grateful for?
