Today is my last day of the 30 days of gratitude. This one is so easy for me.
Who wouldn't be thankful for these guys? My 4 sons are the most incredible children any mom could ever ask for. Each one is so different yet they are each a product of their upbringing and all have the same deep core values of faith and family, loyalty, honesty and integrity. 
They're not bad to look at, either!
The oldest two have blessed us with 7 grandchildren with one more due in February.
It is no wonder my heart swells with pride every time I see them or hear someone compliment them. I think...I made them (with a little help from my super husband, ha! ha!)
They didn't always "like" each other  because they have such different interests, but as the years go by I see them becoming more and more alike and more like their dad...and that's not a bad thing.
This photo was taken on their second brothers' camping trip. They wanted it to be an annual event, but between work, kids and school, their trips were 4 years apart. I hope they can do it annually, because they truly have a blast.
I am grateful to have been blessed with 4 sons. 
Each one has enriched my life more than they will ever know!



Great and all!
