I'm full of the Christmas spirit right now and it's making it very difficult to pick only a few of things that I'm grateful for this week! I'm going to take a chance and single a few people out today. I am blessed to have wonderful people in my life, many deserving of a special shout-out. These people have left special foot prints on my heart this week:
- Tasha and Jonas. They love each other so much. Their's hasn't been a convential siblinghood. They came together later in her life, but they're making up for lost time. Sure, they fight and argue but usually they're warm and fuzzy towards each other. Jonas adores her, and Tasha has gobs of patience and understanding for him. The house hasn't been the same without her this year. She's coming home this week it's a secret surprise for Jonas. He's going to be thrilled!
- My cousin Jennifer. We hardly ever see each other but Facebook keeps us connected. She's a teacher in British Columbia and has been a tremendous support as we try to navigate through the world of ADHD. She works so hard for her own family and students and yet always makes the time for us as well.
- Our Scouting famly. Jonas and I spent another great weekend at camp this past weekend. As a mom, I love seeing how he flourishes when he participates in Scouts. I also love the dear friends I've made. Having the opportunity to spend time with them is something that I cherish. They make me a better mom and a better person.
