Thanks Given - Day Twenty Six

You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. Not true.

Today, I am thankful for our babysitter, Aneth (Annette). She, and her husband, are in the Philippines visiting her family for the next two weeks. I miss them already. :)

Aneth and Steve are true blessings in our lives and in the lives of our kids. The girls have been going to Aneth's since Tessa was a year old. Jack has known nothing else. They beg to go there and are sad to leave. To trust someone with your children takes real trust and they have ours completely.

Most importantly, and special to me, is that they pray for us and the kids everyday. When the kids are sick, she always tells me they prayed for them the night before. It means a lot. I'm so thankful to have found them.

These will be a long two weeks. We don't have a back up. Mainly because they're never gone. So, Jack gets to tag along with mom and dad for two weeks. It's not too different than the first six months of his life when he did the same. Ok - a little different. He watched WAY too much TV today and walked around with a dirty diaper for too long as I forgot wipes. But, he was a cute office mate. I'm looking forward to it and have big plans for around the house which probably won't happen. A girl can dream though. :)

So, a big thank you is due to Aneth and Steve! We hope you enjoy your trip - you certainly deserve it!
