Thankful Thursday

Today is Thankful bff Cassandra started this a few weeks back. It's your chance to stop and take time to realize what you are thankful for. This world is crazy enough, we all need to take time out and realize what we are most thankful for in life. Go ahead, try it! Grab her button and have fun!
Today, I am most thankful for my sister in law, Jessica! Wow, I don't even know where to start with her. We have been through so much together. She is married to my husband's brother, so we have each other to lean on when it comes to their family...haha! But, she and I started way before that and didnt' even know it. See, Jessica always says that we were destined to be sister in laws. Reason behind it is that we both dated a different set of brothers in high school. I dated the older brother and she dated the younger brother. We didn't realize it at the time and then later on came to date the set of brothers that we ended up marrying. I married the older brother and she married the younger brother. We got married just 4 short weeks apart. Wow! Their family had 2 major weddings in just 4 weeks apart. Good thing it was for the boys and they didn't have to do anything but the rehearsal dinner.

Anyway, back to my story. Jessica and I have always had each other to lean on in this family and in life. At first she wasn't so sure she liked me....(I mean, who could imagine that, I'm so sweet...haha). She told me that she had heard that I came from money (which is COMPLETELY NOT true) and she just wasn't sure about me. I don't remember the whole story. Anyway, so we decided to all four go on a six flags trip together. That's where we both really opened up to each other and it's been history since then. We have been with each other through thick and thin. God knows we needed each other in the family that we have! We have called each other up crying, laughing, confused, fighting, all of it.......and at the end of the day, we were still best friends!

We have gone on several vacations together, we have watched each other give birth to perfect children, we have completely taken our friendship and ran with it. We both realize that we are blessings to each other and we realize what we have is the most special relationship ever! Jessica and I always know no matter what happens, that we are always there for each other! She has two beautiful little girls (my nieces) whom I love more than anything. They are 3 and 1 and are perfect in every way! I can't wait for all our children to grow up together and have the bond that Jessica and I have. It will be amazing to watch.

Jessica is my best friend, and as an added bonus, my sister-in-law! She is my comforter, she is my strength, she is my wisdom, she is my motivator, she is my partner in crime, she is my best friend!! Thank you, Jessica for all the wonderful years of friendship and putting up with me! I love you more than words can say! Below is a picture of myself, Jessica and her husband Joe with Caden, Josie and Jolie!
