Someone once said, "Katherine, you can never get enough of what you don't need." I have thought about that over and over again throughout my life. It is true! We have an insatiable appetite for things; clothes, electronics, adventures, getting ahead in life. Not that any of that is bad. Reaching helps us to move forward in life. It helps us to improve.
However, my thoughts have been about giving thanks for the abundance that we do have in our lives. I have especially been made aware of the abundance we have while we have been here in the Dominican Republic. But what is amazing to me, is the gratitude these people have for the things that are most important to them; their families and their God.
Here are some of the things we are grateful for. . .our nine children. You may wonder why we had nine children. We had nine because there are nine letters in Fagersten. That way each child could hold a letter and there would be no arguments.
|Now, if I can only get them to learn how to spell. . .|
|Now that's better|
|Grateful for family reunions and for my Mom who started all of this:-)|
|Grateful for our beautiful 20 grandchildren|
|Grateful we can still have fun!|
|Grateful that Taylor Kilgore Fagersten joined our family!|
|Grateful we want to get together as often as possible|
