Her is Joyce & I at their going away party
Today I am thankful for all of the wonderful people that I have met in my life. One of my best friends, Joyce, and her family just moved away this month due to relocation. I am sad to see her leave but also excited for the new opportunity they have been given. They are just a short 6 hours away in Milwaukee, so hopefully we can make a road trip soon to visit or meet up at the Wisconsin Dells.
I am also thankful for all of the families that we have met thru the adoption journey. It was such an encouragement to me during our wait to have people that I could relate to and continues to be an encouragement today. It has been so fun to see new additions arrive and also to wait on edge for those waiting for referrals.
Lastly, I am thankful for family. I am blessed to have one parent still living. I am blessed that Maddy has so many great grandparents & grandparents. I am thankful for all of the cousins she has and the loving Aunts & Uncles that have opened their hearts to her. It was my Mother-in-law's birthday this week so I want to give a happy birthday wish to her.
Truly I thank God for everyone in my life!
This is Maddy w/her Grandma, Happy Birthday!
