Happy Thanksgiving! The Matthews family enjoyed their first thanksgiving in the United States together. We were joined by Jim's mom, Grandma Matthews. The kids loved helping cook and we were all so stuffed with good food! My list seems endless if I count my blessings from this last year. I am so thankful to my Savior Jesus Christ for all He has done for me. Without Him in my life, I would not know hope, faith and love. I am so thankful for my husband, you are the love of my life, mi amor, mi corazon. You are an amazing man, so patient and loving to our family. You always put family first and encourage us in our lives. Jim, you bring such joy and laughter to our home. I am so thankful for Derly, you are very beautiful and smart. You are very helpful and you have a heart of gold. I am so thankful for Estefania, you are muy bonita and very caring. You work so hard at school and are very smart. I am so thankful for Jesus, you are very sweet, I love your big brown eyes and sweet dimple smile. Jesus, you are always making people laugh and you have a very loving heart. I am so thankful for Prospero, you are very cute and sweet. You are turning into a little boy right before our eyes, you are helpful and love to read books. I am so thankful for Jhon, I am so excited to be your Mami, I cannot wait to hold you in my arms and tell you how much I love you. I think about you everyday and pray for you every night. My heart is so full with joy, love and gratitude for my God, my family and my life.
