Life as Thank you 32
You are one of my heroes. Â You raised the childhood best friends of both my children and that alone had a huge impact on our family. Â In between the birthdays of those 2 fabulous people (Sherrod last week and Abi this week) I thought I would tell you how thankful I am for you.
You are one of the most generous, creative and godly women I know. Â I am grateful for your gift of hospitality and the way you shared your home for play group, Bible studies, neighborhood parties and teas. Â I am grateful that I never had to worry about my kids when they were in your care. I am further grateful for the way you raised your older girls to be responsible and kind babysitters. Â From you I learned so much from homeschooling to recipes to evangelistic living to frugality and more! Your heart for fostering and for adoption is inspiring. Â Your sewing and crafting abilities are amazing and your intentionality in relationships is exemplary.
I love your extended family too. In fact, I think that one of theÂ best things about moving to Illinois was living in Waukegan and having the privilege of doing life with the Reeds, the Martens and the Burns’. Â Memories we all treasure!
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. Â May you know the joy and peace of a job well done as a mom, wife, sister and friend!
