The lovely ladies in my life

We are so blessed to have such wonderful ladies in our family. Steven has 5 sisters and now one sister-in-law, and of course his amazing mom. Most of them live across town, so we don't see them as often as we'd like, but nonetheless they are there for us and make up a big part of who we are.

I don't have any sisters, but I am thankful for my loving mom, my sister-in-law and niece (who have been living in town while my brother is deployed overseas), and my wonderful 2 aunts who are like big sisters to me! We had a wonderful time these past few days spending time with these beautiful ladies. It was like a mini-vacation with lots of outings, thrift shopping, window shopping, eating out, swimming, and partying! Poor Steven Joseph was surrounded by this host of women for 5 days straight. I think he's still recovering!

Then of course there are my wonderful friends, those from childhood, from high school, from college, and now from my life as a homeschooling mom. We are there for each other as we share our similar life experiences and our day-to-day challenges. I'm grateful to have the internet where we can now stay in touch and meet up with friends who would have otherwise been lost. How blessed I am to have such wonderful girlfriends!

I may not have sisters, but I've got lots of lovely ladies in my life
and I'm so thankful for all of them!

A special thanks to Aunt "Mare-Mare" for coming down
for a special long girl weekend. What a gift!
