Thankfulness... Day 4

Today and I am thankful for the gift of life... and the ones who brought Todd and I into this world...

Our parents. :)

 (My mom, my dad and I)

(Todds mom and dad and Keegan)

While being a parent is one of the greatest gifts we are given, it isn't always easy either. I am pretty sure I may have had a lot to do with the loss of hair on my fathers head (love you daddy). And I know that even though your baby is all grown up it can't be easy to see them move halfway across the world to a place that is unfamiliar to you and to a place where you have to watch your grandchildren grow up over a computer screen...

And it isn't easy on your baby either...

We are so thankful for our parents who love us regardless.Thankful for the gift of life they have given us and the sacrifices they have made to help us become who we are today.

I pray we make you proud and I pray we are able to give to others as much as you have given to us.

We love you.

Two things I love about these pictures: the Amy sandwich in the top picture--how cute that your dad is squeezing you and your mom so tight. And the binoculars around Todd's dad's neck for the football game--an obviously very proud grandpa!! :) Thanks for sharing more of your precious family with us!
