A Time of Being Thankful

This time of year I always try to reflect on what I am Thankful for. I have so much to be Thankful for.....

#1 on my list is my husband. He is such a wonderful husband and Father. He has come to really understand who I am and is patience with me of my many mistakes. Thank you for all you do. I Love You my Rand!

#2 on my list is Brock's Birth-Mother and Birth-Father for the sacrifice they made. There is truly not a day that goes by that I don't think of them. They are one of my many Hero's in life. Thank You for the gift you gave me.....Motherhood.

#3 on my list is BROCK. A lot of people ask me if "I think of Brock as my own child?" The answer is "YES". He was meant to come into our family. I felt that way the moment I held him in my arms in Arizona. He is so special that Heavenly Father provided away for him to come into our family. Adoption is amazing and anyone that has adopted will understand what I am talking about. It's all about love. Heather (Brocks' Birth-Mother) loves Brock. She wanted the best for him. Brock is a great Blessing in our lives. I want to share with you some of the funny phrases he says. Of course it's cuter when you hear his sweet voice say it.

Hold you
I scared
Daddy farted
Ank you (Thank you)
Mommy go get it
Mommy hold you
I no want it
Go ni-night
Andre Kirilinko
Mommy sad
Mommy happy
It's funny
My blankey

Those are a few. Brock we are so Thankful and Blessed to have you in our family. We Love You!

#4 on the list is Family. It's wonderful to have family who are close and get along. They all have helped us out and I am so Grateful for that. Thank you.

I am also Thankful to my Grand Parents. A couple of weeks ago on November 7, 2009, my Grandpa Arnold Cornell Green passed away. He was the last of my Grand Parents. He was 90 years old and had an incredible life of service. He was a former Sealer in the Temple and it was a great honor to have him Seal Randy and I on June 10, 2000, and also when we adopted Brock he was able to seal us together as a family for Time and all Eternity. I will never forget those precious memories I have of him.

My Grandpa and Brock on July 26, 2008, the day of Brocks' Sealing. Brock was 6 months old.

My Grandma and Grandpa were married in the Laie Temple in Hawaii. I know it was a great reunion for them on the day of my Grandpas' passing. My Grandma and Grandpa were great examples to me through out my life. I miss them both. I look forward to the day to see them again.
