more grateful

Yesterday I talked about the superficial things I am grateful for. Today I want to talk about the people in my life I am grateful for. There are so many I don’t even know where to start. Let’s start with my parents, my mom and dad was absolutely amazing. As most of you know I am adopted. The people who adopted me were my great aunt and uncle. I feel so amazingly blessed and fortunate to have had the parents that I had, I say had as they have both passed away. My grandparents, the grandparents I refer to are my real grandparents on my birth mothers side. They were awesome; my grandfather was one of the most intelligent men I have ever had in my life. My grandmother was so funny. I am a lot like my grandmother; she was feisty and intelligent and had a love of Hollywood gossip! I totally inherited that from her.
Next would be my children, I am so in awe of how amazing they are. They are bright and caring and funny and sarcastic and I feel so lucky every day of my life that God chose me to be their mother.
I am grateful for my friends, there are so many, I have mentioned a few here before, but I will mention some more now, I am grateful to my friend Jan, who is so beautiful and sophisticated and so smart! She is one of the most grounded people I know, I feel like a better person when I am around her.
My friend Wanda, she has the best sense of humor, I love visiting with her, and I look forward to her emails. She is full of life and is just beautiful inside and out.
Sandi, I don’t know if I have the words to tell you how much my friendship with Sandi has meant. Our sons met in kindergarten, we have been friends since then. Over 21 years.
Most of my friends I have had for a long time, I met Jan when my son was in her class at Mothers Day out. He was a Lavender Lion! He is soon to be 25; he was 3 at the time of the class.
Last but not least, I am grateful to have John in my life. I seriously didn’t believe I would get married again. Now I was ok with that, more than ok, but he showed me it was good to share my life with another human being. John I am grateful that you are not threatened by the fact that my best friend is male, that I want Dean Cain in my prenup, that I have a list (that you will never see as it is fluid), and that you trust me and love me unconditionally.

  1. I teary eyed over here. This was a wonderful post. I didn’t know you were adopted until recently. You mentioned it in a matter of fact way. Angie you are such a sweet person. Don’t change!
