Firstly I am thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ that has taught me to have gratitude and see my life with an eternal perspective. I feel that I am married to the most wonderful man in the world. Jack dedicates his life to doing for others, he carries me through tough times and ALWAYS has my back. He loves our family unconditionally and works so hard to support us. I just can't say enough about him.... I am blessed to be sealed to him for time and eternity. I have been blessed with a wonderful family, I was raised with strong dutch traditions and strong family ties. Anyone who follows this blog has probably figured that out. My brothers and sisters have become my friends and spending time together is always a party (sometimes just a Work party). My children are the joy of my life! They are now growing up to adulthood and I couldn't be any prouder of the people they have become. They love the gospel and live it. Linda and Mario now have children that they are raising with a love for family and gospel as well. Of course I can't forget about my precious grandsons Adam and Tyler, words can't express the love I feel for them.
I know this is kind-of long but I have been blessed with so much. I live in a free country, belong to the true church on earth and have a wonderful family..... what more could I ever ask for.
