Thankful and Grateful for my Family

Home Builder with Sitterle Homes


Debbie Reynolds is holding a 10 day challenge and this is day 9.I love this challenge it is inspiring.

I am Thankful and Grateful for my family. I have the most wonderful family and have since the day I was born. I had the best parents in the world.The sacrificed a lot  so I could go to private schools and then the paid for most of my college.I lost my mom in 2009 and I miss her dearly everyday. The whole family misses her as she was a very loving person.I have so many things that I wish I could share with her.


My mother was the most giving person I have ever met. She would give and give, we would have to tell her to stop because people take advantage. She was a very wise woman. She taught me to be humble and to always be nice to people. She also taught me to be honest and kind. Another of her wise sayings was “It is better to give then have to be given to” I did not get it when I was little I would think I love presents what is she saying. I totally get it now  and of course she was right.


My dad was such a hard worker he would work all kinds of shifts to provide for my mother and me and never ever complained. Most of the time he was also going to night school to get the college degree he never received. He could only take a course or 2 at a time because he had a family to support and raise.

My sons I just naturally love one me he is his mother’s son and I totally can see right through him to his soul. I worked hard to give them the best life I could so they could see the world and give them the love that I received from my parents. The other son I love because he is totally different than me I do not always get him, but he has such a gentle kind side that I was afraid for him the whole time he was growing up.


My Ex-Husband he too is patient and kind and a part of our family,. He is a loyal friend and is there to help us keep the family going. He is also a great giver we are lucky we remained great friends despite we did not make it as a couple.


Ava...the combination of all us she is my very first grandchild. I look forward to getting to see her grow up and her little personality develop.



My husband will be a blog all of his own because he deservesit!

I can't help looking at that picture of your son (the shorter one), and think of my grandson, John Luis!  Those two could be twins.  John Luis is the one that is going to Rice University in Houston!
