the Watts family Christmas 2007

| No Comments

Unbelievable! Another year marathon has been run. We are amazed that time is consumed so quickly. Our days are filled top to bottom with our children and their activities. We are very proud of the choices they make and we pray for strength to keep up with them. It is satisfying to be thankful at the end of each day.

We are Thankful...

  • to have extra sheets to put on a couple of beds during flu or sick tummy season.
  • to have so many great memories in the Nursery that we had tears putting the crib away. (okay, Nannette had the tears)
  • for 18 wonderful years together.
  • Shellfish is only served once a month at the school.
  • getting the bolt through our tire means we avoided a greater trial.
  • for a positive son who reminds us of why we might have got the bolt there.
  • grateful we gave our sweetheart, Dad to Scouts for so long we don't notice the difference with his new calling at church.
  • for toy cars that cover the floor like carpet, even though they can be painful, someday they will be gone.
  • to know we are children of God.
