At the top of the list in things that I am thankful for, is my Catholic Faith and the privileged practicing my faith in a country that does not persecute for religious beliefs.  A close second are my late parents who I miss more than words express.  Selflessly they raised me and my four siblings, treating each of us as if we were only children–giving to us when they went without. Both made sure we had a warm home, were well fed, clothed and raised with honor and integrity. While neither were perfect, they did the best job they could with what they knew about raising children. 
Next I am grateful for a loving husband who is always there supporting me, and cheering me on throughout all of life’s ups and downs. You are a true treasure–a Godly, compassionate man who loves me unconditionally. 
My five children will always be eternal joys in my life–each of them was wanted and loved and despite any differences will always occupy a home in my heart. I pray for each of them every single day of my life.
The added joy of four grandchildren give me hope for the future–that life goes on, that happiness and love prevails. I wish everlasting love and joy for each one of them.
