Here is an easy Five Things I Love Thursday! My Family!
1. I'll start first with Sammy. He is our lovable (and trouble-making) kitty. We have had him for about 5.5 years and he is almost 6yrs old. He is so affectionate and loves to always be wherever the action is. He snuggles close at night and is obsessed with eating. He is so patient with the boys and we can't imagine life without him.
2. Next is my first born, Nathanael. He is now *choke choke* 10 yrs old. I still have trouble saying that, he has grown so fast. He is sensitive, smart and very kind. He is participating in the CanSpell provincial spelling bee this weekend, I am beyond proud!
3. I love my middle guy, Andrew. He is so funny and very very caring. He is so creative and is always making something and making and giving gifts. He has such a tender heart and is always trying to make people happy and laugh! He is the biggest clown and it is always fun to have him around.
4. My baby, Joseph. He is my little snuggler. He can get mad at the drop of a hat and then turn around and hug you. He is moody, slow to wake up in the morning and well, so much like me! He is also creative and has so much patience with his art, not at all like me! I am having trouble accepting him as this amazing big boy that he has become, he is my youngest and I want to keep him as my baby forever!
5. Last but certainly not least, my husband. This summer will mark 12 years of marriage. Where does the time go? I'm so lucky to have married my best friend. He is someone I love to spend time with, someone who always treats me as someone special (even if I don't feel it). He is very caring and really loves his family. I'm always inspired and encouraged by his messages sunday morning and love that he never misses those teachable opportunities with the boys, to help them to learn about God and their relationship with Him.
That's my family that I am so lucky to have. I love how, no matter how many enter our family, there is only more love, not less.

My best friend in the whole wide world, some may know her as Peanut, has started a new carnival. Basically you list 5 things that you love. I am so happy she started this because, well, I have nothing to blog about. I've been so sick the last two and a half weeks, which brings me to my topic. I'm going to write about the 5 things I love (hmm, love is such a strong word for this.....like?) about being sick. I'm trying to focus on the positive here people, after two weeks of solid complaining! Here goes!
5 Things I Like About Being Sick
1. Staying in bed. all. day. Being sick forced me to get some much needed rest!
2. Getting to stay home and watch Regis and Kelly. They always make me laugh.
3. Having my boys pop in every half hour saying "Sorry you are sick, I love you" and showering me with hugs and kisses. (Even though I'm trying, impossible I know, not to share my germs)
4. Not having to cook dinner!
5. Losing weight! I lost about 3 lbs because I wasn't feeling well enough to eat much, have to look for the silver lining folks!
There you go. Being sick really sucks but it is kind of nice (after the fact) to look for some of the positives!
Thanks Peanut for giving me something to blog about! To check out more 5 Things I Love, head on over and say hi and maybe even add your own list and link up!
* The button above is not her official button, she doesn't have one yet so I made one for my post. She can't get mad, she loves me too much! heehee

INNOCENCE IS PRICELESS
One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it. The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, 'Good morning Alex.'
'Good morning Pastor,' he replied, still focused on the plaque. 'Pastor, what is this?'
The pastor said, 'Well son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.'
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque.
