Everyone in your own family, if you will admit it, has quirks that may drive you crazy at times. Our family is no different.
Elmer (my hubby) has been known to lick a table knife from time to time, or wipe his mouth on the kitchen hand towel, no matter how much we tease him about how "redneck" this is.
Kelsi, age 13, gets engrossed in a book and literally cannot hear us talking loudly to her, to try to get her attention. Many times a day.
Brittany, age 11, talks incessantly at times, making it hard to focus on her as much as I should, while trying to do other tasks.
And me? Well, I still occasionally pop my knuckles. Shame on me.
You know what, though?
Even though we drive each other CRAZY at times, we still love each other very much.
I am SO thankful for my family!
My husband is a very hard worker at his job and around our home. He determines to get the job done right, and right away. He's not one to leave a job unfinished for weeks or months at a time. I am so grateful for this!
Kelsi enjoys showing her love to us by serving us willingly. She will often clean up something, make a meal, or help out with some of my chores without grumbling. I'm very thankful for her willing spirit.
Brittany is more creative than the rest of us put together! She comes up with all kinds of creative ideas that keep us smiling, laughing, or just nodding our heads with encouragement. I love this!
And me? Well, I'm "just" Mom. And I love that!
This is a part of Brenda's Garden of Learning 2011 Gratitude Challenge, of which I'm very thankful to be a part! Thank you, Brenda!
