God has truly blessed me. He gave me a wonderful, loyal, hardworking, loving husband. He gave me 2 fantastic daughters, 2 adorable granddaughters, 2 son-in-laws that love and care for our daughters, a great church and lots of friends who we love and care for. I am so thankful for all of it. He has given me so much that I can't even thank him for everything.
We recently had a visit from one of our favorite people. Rachel was here from Oregon with her 2 little girls. We were so happy to see her and to get to know her babies. She is just like one of our own kids. Sometimes in life you think you will never see someone again. We never thought we would see Rachel's parents or even Rachel again. It was a very pleasant surprise to see her parents when we went out to lunch with Rachel, Gary and Cassie. Gary arranged to surprise all of us. He was pretty proud of himself.
I am getting more and more excited about my Mom coming to come visit. She will be here May 13th. Jerry is killing himself to get the house done before she arrives. I can't wait for it to be all done and to see Mom.
School is nearly out for the year and I feel really good about it. The kids are all reading and are all doing very well. I am proud of them and how hard they have worked.
