im supposed to be folding laundry but...

so as I'm sitting here watching extreme home make over and as always, Ive been overcome with emotion. Just today we received a box full of presents from my parents for Jr. And Ive just realized how blessed we truly are. We are not what people consider rich, hell were living pay check to  pay check right now. And no matter what, each and every time, Sr and i seem to make things work. not only did this box have toys in it, but it also had clothes. and i just got to thinking how blessed we have truly been since having Jr. We are just now getting to the point where we have to buy him clothes and he is two. how many people can say they have gone two years with out having to buy their child clothes? And then we have such awesome parents that find such joy in buying things to where that helps out too. With all of the bad things going on in the world, it just seems so right to take the time an be thankful for what we do have instead of worrying about all that we don't. Something else that made me tear up was the thought of one of my coworkers and the act of kindness that she has decided to show. When we came home from my mother in laws house for thanksgiving, we came home to a house that had been ransacked and robbed. They didn't take much, considering we don't have much, but it did set us back a little bit. My coworker has taken it upon herself to make Christmas for Jr special too. She has gone out and bought him clothes, shoes and toys. now how many people you know would do that for a coworker? like i just had to take this moment to express how grateful i am for each and every blessing in our life.  thank you mom and dad for sending stuff for your grandchild, thank you cassidey for your kindness for my child. thank you to anyone that has ever helped us along the way, from the bottom of my heart, i appreciate you and i love you.  And thank you to whomever is reading my blog. I appreciate you too.
