Lord, I thank You for my wonderful friends! As I think about the treasure chest of my close friends, casual friends, and acquaintances, I am grateful for the blessings and the joys each one brings to my life. Thank You for my "heart" friends, my loyal sister friends who listen, care, and encourage me. they are my faithful companions. I acknowledge that You, Lord, are the giver of all good gifts, and I thank You for Your provision in my friendships!
So many of you encourage and support me on a daily basis and I just wanted to take time out and thank YOU for that. It isn't easy getting thru day by day.... mentally it can be draining dealing with such a demanding child and NO free time. It's certainly not a cakewalk but I embrace my challenges and put a smile on my face that God brought him back to me and I am very fortunate with my blessing of Alex Ross' life as well as my supportive family and friends.
A special thanks to Chris Bartmess who was inspired by Alex to create this masterpiece and take to nationals. He came over yesterday and gave it to Alex and HE ADORES IT! Congrats Chris on placing 6th in the Nation on such an awesome piece of artwork! I LOVE YOU!
I LOVE THIS PICTURE!!
I have some vacation pics to share today.... I keep forgetting when I blog but I thank each and everyone of you for taking Alex on your trips and thinking of him while you are out!
