Today I am thankful for my parents.... yes, yes.... I know. I was already thankful for my whole family, but I kind of need to expand. Not only did my parents do a fantastic job of parenting when I was a child, but they are still there to give advice and help when we need it. For example, last night (Tuesday) we had a plumbing crisis. I don't need to go into to go into too much detail, but we had water leaking from out laundry room into the basement and had to turn the hot water off in the house completely :/. Mom and Dad came down today to help get us back up and running. Mom kept the kids busy and gave them all sorts of attention while Dad fixed up my plumbing... I was the errand girl, running up and down the stairs for tools and to the hardware store multiple times for more/correct parts. But luckily it didn't take too long and our leak was fixed. Whew. I sure am glad that I have parents and are willing to help and know what they are doing! Thanks to both of you for everything... which is so much more than plumbing and babysitting!
