Giving Thanks

I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. My life has been blessed so abundantly. I am so thankful for God's love and grace in my life. I am overwhelmed every day when I see His love for me in these eyes....

I couldn't have imagined just how wonderful my life would be with these boys in it! They are far more wonderful than I ever imagined! And my life would not be complete or nearly as blessed without my wonderful husband - the love of my life. I love him more today than ever before - I'm so proud to be his wife of almost 14 years! (we will be married 14 years on Dec. 8th)

I'm thankful for my family - my brother, Derek, who is a such a great Uncle to my boys. My father who adores my boys, and they adore him as well. My grandmother who will turn 90 years old on Thanksgiving day. My mother and father in law, who are wonderful grandparents to my boys. They love their MaMa and PaPa Robinson so much. And my wonderful extended family.

There is a huge hole in my heart which is reserved for my Mother. I lost her over 8 years ago and that hole will always be there - I miss her so much. I was so incredibly blessed to have her as my Mom for 25 years. Corley was blessed to know his MaMa Corley for the first 2 years of his life. There will never be another Karen Corley - she left an impression on all who knew her. Her legacy of kindness and friendliness is something that makes me so proud to be her daughter on a daily basis. She was loved by so many. I miss her so much and I hate that she was called home so soon, way too soon, but I will always be so thankful for the love that she left behind.
