Happy Thanksgiving!

I know this is a couple days early but the boys are in bed and I don't know the next time I will have a few moments of Quiet to sit down and collect my thoughts before Thanksgiving. I wanted to write a few things I am thankful for. 1. My Family- I am thankful for my eternal companion and the love and friendship we share. I am thankful we can laugh, cry and be mad with each other but still love each other to the moon and back. I am thankful for my kids I am not the most patient mom and I get impatient with them but I love them very much and I am thankful to be their mother. I am thankful for Jonah and for him picking me to be his mom. I only hope I am worthy of him someday. I am thankful for my siblings and parents we are about the most dysfunctional family you will meet but I love them dearly. I am thankful for my In law family I could not ask for better in laws I am thankful for the relationship and friendship I have with both of them I love hanging out with my mother in law our little shopping adventures and the time we get to spend together. I love my Father in Law dearly and I know we were kindred spirits in the Pre- existence.. 2. Friends- I am thankful for the friends I have and the friendships I am building. I am who I am today because of you. I love our girls night out, late movies and dinner, chats on the phone, you name it, I love spending time with you. 3. I am thankful for my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am thankful for the peace the gospel brings. I am Thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who I know lives, knows each of us our wants our desires, and loves us despite our faults and weaknesses, further more I know he indeed does carry us through our times of trial. I have personally felt him. I am thankful for my Eternal Family and that Tim and I chose a Temple marriage so that some day we will be with Jonah again. 3. I am thankful for my calling in the Relief Society and the love I have for my sisters. 4. I am thankful for trials I know you think I am crazy! I am the person I am today for the trials and tribulations I have personally been through. I have grown in leaps and bounds spiritually through Logan's car accident and losing Jonah. It has strengthened my testimony and taught me of the strengths I never thought I had. It has also helped me to lean on my Heavenly Father more.When I have given all I can and can give no more I can then draw from him for the strength I lack. I am glad he never turns me down either he is always there to lift me up when I fall down. I love that! 5. I am thankful to live in this beautiful city and to be able to raise my children with good values and morals. And that their friends come from great families who beleive as we do. These are just a few of the things I am thankful for I could go on for hours.I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and take the time in the next couple of days to reflect upon some of the things that our Heavenly Father has blessed you with and that you share some of the things you are thankful for with others. Love, Des

I've Been Tagged!!!!

This is me meeting Jonah in the NICU for the first time. Such a tender moment. I was so scared and he was hooked to so many tubes and wires I didn't know where to touch him. I wanted so badly to pick him up and hold him but all I could do was stroke his perfect little face the only part of him not attached to something. Your Turn- Here are the rules: *Open your first photo folder. *Scroll down to the 10th picture. (if you dont have 10 in that one, then go to the next folder that does). *Post that photo and the story behind that photo on your blog. *Tag 5 friends to do the same. Brandy Christi Michelle Lex Tina
