Thanks to everyone who sent in photos yesterday and today for Part two of the Gratitude Contest (which you can read about here). So far the photos are lovely and so are the stories that accompany them. Check it out for yourself...
"I couldn't be more grateful for the little girl who says to me, "Mom, you're the bestest Mumma ever." ~ Karly K.
"This is what I'm grateful for. My beautiful, strong and brave mama and my precious little boy. I love them both more then words can explain. I'm grateful at all my mom has taught me over the years from tying my shoes to being strong and getting through everything life throws at me. My son made me grow up fast and be more mature. He has taught me to have patience and a happiness that I never could have imagined before i had him." ~ Sitina B.
"I'm grateful to our earth and Mother Nature for reminding me how beautiful life is on a daily basis. No matter how I feel emotionally, there is always beauty in the world to lift my spirits and warm my heart." ~ Sara W.
"This photo shows my little nuclear family whom I am most grateful for, the dogs we rescued and love, and the yard that we are grateful belongs to us in this wonderful town of Creston." ~ Niqi A.
"I am truly grateful for all the blessings I have in my life including this little angel!" ~ J.P.
"I am more than grateful for these 2 people. They raised my beautiful mother into the amazing person she is today. They helped raise my brother, sister and I when my mom was doing it on her own. My grandma has always been one of my biggest fans, supporters and best friends. She worked hard to help raise her family, working nights and being a mother by day. She is ALWAYS there when I need her, never too busy for me. My grandpa has been the biggest male inspiration in my life. He never yells, never fights, only loves. If I was ever in trouble, he was ALWAYS there to help me out, in anyway he could. They have taught me so much, I love them to the moon and back... and then some!" ~ Cara C.
"I am grateful for my son and husband, as well as my brother and his wife who were married this day, and all the friends and family that came to celebrate...and don't forget the photographer! I am grateful for her too ;) " ~ Danette R.
