Yes, I always pictured myself with a sweet blonde-haired, blue-eyed daughter with a future of Barbies, tea parties, and prom dresses. But it wasn't meant to be.
My family is the greatest blessing I have on this earth, and my most prized possession. Take away my house, my car, our boat, or any other material possession we own, but I can't stand the thought of losing one of my precious children or my wonderful husband. Yikes. The very thought brings tears to my eyes.
I feel so blessed to have five healthy boys and a loving husband. When I think about all I've been given, the thought comes to mind, "my cup runneth over."
How did I get so lucky?
I'm also thankful for good friends who uplift me and make me want to be a better person. I've been blessed with awesome friends over the years, friends who are more like sisters than friends. If you have a friend who stays by your side no matter what choices you make, or what path you take, then you know you have a friend worth keeping.

Even though there will now be distance between us, I know that we will remain friends forever. No amount of distance could affect the deep love I feel for these amazing women, each with their own set of trials and circumstances. Over the years they have been an example to me as they strive to be the best mother and wife they can be. I'm thankful that eight years ago they came into my life and have left a lasting impression.
