Sunday Seven

Valentine's Day is one of my most favorite holidays to celebrate! It's a holiday that everyone observes regardless of their religion, but it presents a huge open door to share the most important love that anyone could experience: the love of Christ!
This Valentine's Day, I'm so thankful to be loved! Here are just a few...
#1. I am most thankful to be loved by my Savior. I can't imagine giving my only son to take the penalty for my sins and the sins of the world! I'm so thankful that He chose me to be one of His children.
#2. I am incredibly thankful to be loved by an amazing husband! Cody does an awesome job of leading our family in a way that honors God. I can't imagine ever wanting to spend the rest of my life with anyone else!
#3. I am thankful for the love of my three children! Nothing in the world beats hearing a little voice say, "Love you Mommy!"
#4. I am so thankful to be loved by my family. I have great parents who literally drop everything to come be with our kids and help us out!
#5. I'm thankful to be loved by an awesome group of gal friends! Can you believe one of them brought me this yummy treat last week! This Red Velvet Cake was deeeelicious!#6. I'm so thankful to still have a grandma that's living and loves me to pieces! Someday I know Jesus will call her home and I'll miss her terribly! She is always so loving and kind and full of little nuggets of wisdom (some great and some a little nutty, but I love it!).
#7. I am thankful to be loved by the best siblings in the world! I pray that my children will stay close and have the kind of relationships that I have with my brother and sister!
