I'm Thankful Day #19
Today I'm thankful for Chuck and Jenny Collins, also knows as Bozo and Gramma Jenny. Ben's parents and sister live in Oregon, so we don't get to see them as often as we'd like. In their absence, Chuck and Jenny have stepped in. They invite us (and Ben's brother and his family) to share all the holidays with them. It's so nice of them to include us in their celebrations. This year they have gone above and beyond. They hosted not one, but two Thanksgiving dinners. We were unable to make it on Thanksgiving and they graciously offered to have everyone over again today. They always buy our kids a little something special and have come to see both of them in the hospital. Chuck and Jenny always make an effort to come to all of our parties that we host, even though they live an hour away. It's nice for us to have that connection to Ben's side of the family, even if his parents and sister are so far away. Someday we would love to travel to Oregon for the holidays to visit, but it's just not feasible right now. So, until then...we'll celebrate with Bozo and Gramma Jenny. We love you guys tons and tons!
