Day 2...

Today, like so many other days I'm incredibly thankful for my family. Both the family that I was born into, the family I married into, and my "adopted" family. We have our trials just like every other family out there but where would we be without hills to climb in life?

I have a HUGE family and I love it. My older brother and I are the only children that my parents had but our extended family is big. My mom's parents have five children, seven grandchildren, and 16 great grandkids. My dad's parents have two children, six grandchildren, and I'm not sure how many great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. Brent's family is bigger than mine.

I also have another family, God blessed me with an awesome younger brother from another mother & a little sister too! My dad's girlfriend has a son who's not much younger than me (but I still pull the big sister card...just ask him) and a daughter who is 11. I have adopted them as my little brother and sister also and am blessed to have all three of them in my life.

My older brother, Nicholas is a Lieutenant in the Army National Guard. He finished basic training in September of 2010 and went to OCS over the summer of 2011. Right now he is in Fort Benning, Georgia doing more training. He'll be gone until April of 2012. I can't say that we're as close as I'd like to be but he's my big brother and I wouldn't know what to do without him. He's always there when I need him and would do anything for myself, my husband, and my kids.

My younger brother, Eric is an amazing "kid" (yes Eric...if you read this I just called you a kid because whether you like it or not you ARE my kid brother!!!) he lives in Dallas and works for Apple. He's an "Genius" and I have to agree with that title, he's pretty awesome. We just seem to click and I can tell our relationship is only going to grow and I have a feeling we're going to be close.

My sister, Breauna is much younger than the rest of us, she'll be 12 in a few weeks. She's the little sister I always wanted but of course I never got...thanks mom & dad! She lives in New Braunfels with my dad and her mom. I believe she's in fifth grade and she's pretty smart. She's great with the kids and she's going to grow up to be a beautiful young lady.

I'm thankful for my brothers and sister and every other person in my family. I'm blessed to have them in my life each and every day.
