Why We Are Thankful

This past month we were blessed to have our daughter, son-in-law and grand-children with us! The icing on the cake was the birth of our 4th right here in our home.

Marillyn, our daughter, is an amazing young woman. She was born deaf but has never let that hold her back from what she thinks the Lord wants her to do. She and Jon, her husband have chosen to answer the call of God to serve in Honduras with their 4 children. We are so blessed to be a part of what the Lord is doing in their lives.

Each of our grand-children are unique. They each know that they are my "favorite"! Naomi is my favorite oldest grand-daughter. She is the contemplation one. Tabitha used to be my favorite youngest grand-daughter, but now she has a baby sister so she is now the favorite middle grand-daughter who was born in Costa Rica. She is the goofy/funny one. Tobias is my favorite grand-son. He is all boy and knows how to charm. Poema is my favorite youngest grand-daughter now. It will be fun to see how she grows and what personality she takes on.

What a blessing to be a grandpa!
