moving on

I really have nothing to say, but I don't want the last post to linger. So I thought I would just post some reasons to be thankful

My kids who are truly the best
thing about me. They are so good to me. And I
am honored to be their mom.

Jenny Cannon who has been so important to Ethan's education.
And who I am So happy to call my friend. Her heart
reminds me to keep on moving forward.

New friends who quickly became forever friends

For getting to be a part of the most amazing story, and a part of these lives

Blog friends who became real friends

some serious long term friendships, that have
gotten me through life's hard times. And who are in almost
all of my stories. From Deborah teaching me to squeal a tire,
to rollerblading with Ashley at 2am. Teninis With Jeanne,
and sirlynn (I think that was his name) Denise getting
me in trouble for eating chips on the school bus.
Six flag trips, sanibel retreats.

The fact that my kids get to grow up with other kids we love.

And while everyone in my life plays a signaficat role, right now I have to say I am so very thankful for Jeanne. Everyone needs someone or something to remind them to hold on to God. When the world wants you to give up and just quit trying, we need someone to remind us that God still believes in us. And we need to feel like we can show the worst side and still be loved, without judgement. We need a safe place.....Someone who makes us want to be closer to God

So see it's all good!!!!

Girl, you've brought the pregnant woman to tears. Everyday I'm so utterly grateful for you and your friendship. Love you muchly.

Jeanne said...

We love you. We love your kids. I'm so thankful for you being in my life as well little girl! :) Your network of friends is rockin! Sirylnn (I guess that's how you spell it)....ha! That was a scary night. We really are the next Venus and Serena, only we aren't sisters and we don't look the same and we can't quite play tennis as well, but we are them :)

I will never forget when I was where you are today. I remember going for a walk in my neighborhood and I decided (actually it was God) to list every single thing I had in my life that I was grateful for. I listed so many things. It helped SO much! You are wise to do that, Lori! I am so touched that you included me in this post! I'm honored to be your friend! I'm here whenever you need a friend!
I wish I could give you a hug right now!
Love you, my real friend!
Angie xoxo
