I grew up in the very town that I live in now. I grew up in a house full of love. Sounds sappy, I know. It is very true tho. I knew that I was loved always. I also knew that my parents loved each other very much. They still act as if they are on their honeymoon. I love the way they always hold hands and sit next to each other. It is how I want my marriage to be. I knew that my parents loved each other above all else. Our kids should know that now. They should see that we will always work together and back each other up. I knew then and now that my dad was always on my mom's side first. Don't cross her or he would deal with you.
I had one older brother that I looked up to. He was popular, handsome and everyone wanted to be his friend. I just wanted him to be impressed by me and not embarrassed. To this day, I still feel that way. He has a great wife that is perfect for him and two great kids. His oldest just started college and is turning into a great man. His daughter is a beautiful 8th grader. They live in Iowa. I wish we were closer in miles. I never had any cousins and I love to see my kids with theirs.
I married my best friend almost 18 years ago. We have three great kids who bring us so much joy. More about them later.......right now I have to get my rest so I can start tomorrow fresh and ready for a new adventure. Every day brings new ones.
