Thanksgiving #6

Whenever I think about counting my blessings, my family is right at the top of the list.  I have been married for 41 years to a very good man and we raised 4 wonderful children, 3 sons and a daughter.  I love all my kids, but I have to say I am very thankful that I have a daughter. My sons are great, but 2 live far away and let's face it, guys just aren't as relational as girls are.
So today I am thankful for our daughter.  I am thankful for her many phone calls and drop in visits and thoughtfulness.  She is a sweetheart.
And while I'm at it, I'll brag a little on her too.  She teaches kindergarten and was voted teacher of the year at her school.  Not only am I thankful for her, I'm proud of her too!

Enjoy your weekend.

  1. Daughters (and sons!) are a blessing. I have two and I love my sweet babies so much! Cngratulations to her on being recognized as teacher of the year!

  2. Oh what an honor for her to be Teacher of The Year. I am sure she is a very special person. Daughters are such fun and great friends. Hugs, Marty

  3. A very sweet post!! I was blessed with 2 sons and 2 daughters and yes, daughters are more relational than sons -- although my sons do pretty good :)

    Congratulations to your daughter on the award. How wonderful!


  4. I do agree. I have one daughter and two sons, and am very thankful for both a daughter and a sweet stepdaughter.

  5. Rhondi, what a sweet post! As a former elementary teacher, I send my regards and best wishes to your daughter. I worked with first grade students the last ten years in the classroom. It was my favorite grade. My sister taught K and retired a few years ago. Congratulations to Ms. Mullins!

  13. Rhondi,
    It sounds like your daughter takes after her mom. You must be so proud of her.
