2009 was a year of many trials, many tears, many laughs and sweet cuddles, lots of emotions, plenty of illnesses, hospital stays, sleepless nights, an abundance of giggles and laughs, and always the comfort of each other which I am MOST thankful for.

I was looking forward to a year of less of a few of those and that has been true so far.   It has made us stronger as a family and made us appreciate one another, made us grow together, made us depend on the other for support, for love, and assurance.

Nick was my rock this past year and I am so Thankful we had the chance to grow together and connect in a way we never have before. I am Thankful he is my husband, Thankful he is my confidant, he can make me laugh, he is patient, he can put a smile on my face just by looking at me, Thankful he is the most wonderful father to our beautiful daughters, Thankful he understands me, is a hard worker, dedicated and driven, Thankful for who he is, and Thankful he completes who I am.

Our girls are growing into beautiful little ladies, and maturing in ways that amaze me. They make me laugh each day and my heart grows with love in amounts I could have never imagined.

I am so blessed to have my family.
