Thankful: Day Thirty

Jordan: I'm thankful for everybody in my life, all my friend and family and loved ones. I don't know where I'd be without any of these people. I know I can always count on them, and they will always love me. I consider my closest friends as a part of my family. They're so amazing, and wonderful. I'm so glad I met all of my friends and I'm so glad I have my family who will always have my back. I'm thankful that I can easily think of 30 things that I'm thankful for. I'm so blessed with everything I have and everyone in my life. It's truly incredible.

Rita: I have saved the best for last.  Today I am thankful for Jim.  He is the best partner in life I could have ever hoped for.  He is an incredible dad to the 3 Js.  I can’t tell you how many of my friends over the years have said they wished their husbands were more like him.  Not too long from now, all of the Js will be out of the house and on their own.  That is when we will start a new adventure.  And I can’t wait to see what that will bring us.  I think some people our age dread the time when the kids all leave home and they are left alone with their spouse, but I am excited for that and looking forward to spending that time with him.

Kaity:  I'm thankful for all of the Fujas and Goodnesses.  I'm grateful for the relationships I have with my cousins and aunts and uncles.  I love our big family get togethers and always look forward to seeing everyone.  Some of my favorite memories include cousin sleepovers and visiting my grandma and grandpa.  I can't wait to see everyone for Christmas!
