On Appreciation.....

Your child (my child)... is so important to you (me).

And one of the most important things you want for your child is that he/she marries someone who is kind.... and loving.... and who appreciates him/her.

Laura did that.

I thank the Lord for that.

She married Ryan....
That's him, recently in Ethiopia.)

That's them- on June 5, 2010

I love that picture on so many levels.


And yesterday (MAY 16TH) - he graduated with his Master's Degree in Nursing from Baylor University!!!!
Whoa.
He has a beautiful family, don't you think?
(And that's not including his handsome brother, Zach.)

Here's a picture of the three siblings a few months ago...
I love that picture (and those people).

But more important (to me) is not the degree he earned (which is WONDERFUL)..... 
or how much he will make as a nurse practioner.....
but HOW HE TREATS OUR DAUGHTER.

Is he kind?
Does he appreciate her?

And I say YES.... HE DOES!!!!


And does our daughter-in-law appreciate our son?

THAT IS THE MAIN THING.

AND YES, SHE DOES.
That's them, October 30, 2010.

She so appreciates him...


That's them, Dec. 2013, where they got married in 2010.
(Our back parking lot.)

How I love that....
Mmmmmmmm.


Oh... nobody is perfect.

Not Laura.

Or Will.

Or certainly me.

But oh, how wonderful it is that my husband appreciates me.....

That was during my surprise 50th birthday party.

And I so appreciate him.....
That's when I had the 'birthday tree'.


My lesson today is to APPRECIATE YOUR LOVED ONES..... 
AND LET THEM KNOW YOU APPRECIATE THEM.


THERE IS LITTLE MORE WONDERFUL
THAN
APPRECIATION!!


OH,
AND
CONGRATULATIONS,
RYAN
!!!!!

It feels great to be appreciated! Thanks for all the kind words, Nancy. I am ridiculously blessed to have grown up in my family and now - even more to be a part of your family. I'm thankful for you.
