Thankful Thursdays

I am headed out of town, so this will be short. However, I am no less thankful for the following (just in a hurry):

  • My parents-They are spending a month in Alaska (and, yes, I'm sad that I couldn't go) but I am very fortunate to have them as my parents. They raised me in a loving, Christ-centered household. They were "mean" to me when I was younger, especially when I was a teenager; and because of it I am a better person as an adult. I try to model my parenting on the parenting I remember (and still receive) from them.

  • Ken's parents-Ken was also raised in a loving, Christ-centered family. Both of his parents are involved in church as readers and Eucharistic ministers. He enjoys spending time with both his father and brother with male-bonding activities (hunting, sports, golf, etc...). They are keeping Frances for a long weekend while we are at Youth Convention and I know that she will have a blast. We are very fortunate to have both sets of grandparents close by and eager to be involved with the kids.

  • The Diocesan Youth Council-This amazing group of young people spends a whole year planning our Youth Convention which takes place every summer. Ken and I were both part of this group as teenagers and we now serve as adult advisers. These teens give up their weekends in order to plan an event that will help them to spread the Gospel to more teens around the state.
