I'm am so very Thankful for having my mother for as many years as I have. She recently passed away at the age of 100 - 2 days from her 101st birthday. She now rests with my dad who passed away in 1969. I'm thankful for them adopting me when I was only 4 days old. Their age was against them at the time, but my life was truly blessed as being their only child. I couldn't have asked for better parents or a better life. We weren't rich by any means, and I learned how to work hard as a child. But we were rich in family life, love, and living in a nice home in the country.
For this I'm so thankful for, and will feel this for the rest of my life!
