Thankful For My Children

When I decided, on a whim, to do the November 30 Day Thanksgiving Challenge, my very first thought was to post about my family, because obviously they are the thing I'm most thankful for. Then I thought, that's too convenient. I need to think of some other things first. But I really don't want to put it off any longer!

Today, I'm just going to post about my children. I'll save my husband for another day.

I've got four grown children and I'm very proud of all of them! They are all very different from each other in temperament, and each has their own unique interests. At the same time, they do have some things in common. They are all good musicians. They are all tall and slim. There is one candidate they are all willing to vote for.

First, there's Matt, living in Ohio, where he is the pastor of a church.

Then, there's Grant, married to Traci, and living here. He's an elementary school art teacher.

Then there's Paul, married to Janel, father of Malorie, and with a son already named Brandon due to be born in February. He's an electrician.

Then there's Robin, living here, working at a running shoe store and playing trumpet gigs while preparing for various auditions.

I have a lot to be thankful for, don't I?

You do have a lot to be thankful for. :) I'm thankful for mine too - but I sure wish they'd sleep a bit more. Me so tired.

GB- When they're teenagers you'll be trying to pry them out of bed with a crowbar. I'm not sure which is worse!

You do have much to be thankful for! I am thankful every day that I have 4 healthy, happy children and five healthy wonderful grandchildren. Not every one is so fortunate.

To Green Bean, I don't think I knew what a full night's sleep was until I was past forty:)

Rose, we seem to have an awful lot in common!
