Happy Tuesday to you~this month many of our blog friends are doing a 30 day thankful challenge; I have chosen to daily make a habit of giving thanks for all things in my life so I haven't specifically joined this challenge.  However, today I want to share how thankful I am for my incredible sister-in-law Susan, also known as the sister of my heart.  I can still hardly believe the Lord so graciously blessed us with Susan.  We can't always pick our family members but I know that the Lord smiled the day He brought Sue into our life.
Susan is one of those gals who has a natural ability to treat you like you are royal guest in her home; she has always had the gift of entertaining for a small gathering or a large group.  She and my dear brother have the biggest hearts of anyone I know.  Sue is one patient gal, she had to be when she entered our Irish family; she has been such a loyal and devoted wife to my brother and she put up with a lot from me over the years. In 45+ yrs. I've only seen her lose her temper twice and believe me she had plenty of reasons to lose it with me when I was just a young and immature gal.  I found out today that Sue is having some vision problems plus she has found out she has another condition as well.  She has been the rock of our family in many situations and I can't imagine life without her; I am not planning on that happening for many many years. 
I told her that she was going to be prayed over; you see I personally know the Great Physican. 
I also wanted her to know just how cherished she is by our complete family.  When you've had relationships with others that aren't close, it makes you so grateful for those incredible members that you are close with.

Sue we all love you so very much and are so thankful for you!!!!!

My friends, are you taking the time to tell those in your life how much you care about them?  If not, make sure you do today.
Hugs, Noreen
