Thankful Thursday

These last three years have been very difficult for me. One of the main things that has kept me going is my three wonderful kids! These years have been so hard on them, but despite all that they have gone through, they keep going! I am so proud and so thankful for them!!

Katie is in her junior year of college. She is taking a full course load and is working two jobs. She also just recently signed up to serve in the preschool ministry of her local church. Emilie is a sophomore in college and is also taking a full load. She works about 20 hours/week at Chick-fil-A and usually averages about 2-3 babysitting jobs every week. She also serves in the preschool ministry at our church. And, even with everything that was going on last year, I just found out that both Katie and Emilie made the Deans List!! So proud of their hard work and God’s grace in this accomplishment!

Jacob is a sophomore in high school and we continue to homeschool. He continues to make all A’s and B’s. He has also really stepped up to the plate in helping me with things that need to be done around the house, taking on a lot of the things that Greg used to do. He also just got his learner’s permit!!

What a blessing my kids are to me! Although it saddens me that they have had to go through so much, I am thankful I have them to journey with me. I love you Katie, Emilie and Jacob!!
