Counting My Blessings, Day Four

Today I'm thankful for the special men in my life.

My Dad, a retired farmer, who worked hard all his life to support his family. He worked seven days a week without a vacation from the time he was a teenage boy until he retired. He is probably the most generous person I know, and has helped countless people over the years.

My husband, who has worked hard to support me and our four children over the past 32 years, which made it possible for me to be a stay-at-home mother. If not for his willingness to work hard, I would not have been able to stay home and be there for our children.

My sons Justin and Josh, who are wonderful men, work hard at their jobs, and truly love their wives. I know I can always count on them if I need something. They would be there for me in a minute. I'm so proud of the fine young men they have become.

My sweet grandson, Austin, who is always a joy to be around. He is always full of life and loves the outdoors, just like his Daddy.

My son-in-law-to-be, Barak, who is always there for our youngest daughter and truly loves and respects her. It's such a good feeling in today's world to see a young man show respect and love for your daughter, and to know he will always take good care of her.

I have a lot to be thankful for with the special men in my life!
