I love my mom and dad

I have to say I am very thankful for my parents. For the first time in almost 10 years of marriage, Garr and I are sick at the same time. It's not easy to take care of 4 kids when neither of you can get off the couch! My mom has been awesome. She cleaned up all the dishes from supper last night, brought hot tea and blankets to Garr and I, took care of Danny, and gave the girls their bedtime snack and story. And was at it again this morning before she went to work. Abby asked her if she was going to stay home from work to take care of her today! Thanks Mom!

Today is my Dad's birthday. I love my dad. I am so thankful to have had him all these years and to be able to be so close to him. He stopped home before heading out to a call at the hospital this afternoon. As soon as Danny sees my dad, he gets so excited. Dad was running behind but he still picked him up and spent time playing with him before he left (you should have heard Danny giggling!).

God really blessed me when he gave me these two wonderful people! I love you Mom and Dad!
