30 Days of Blogging: Day 27

Sitting in their living room, drinking Dutch Bros., talking about life, I felt an extra dose of thankfulness for my sister & brother in law. 

They are honest. Hard-working. Funny. Intelligent. Loving. Excellent parents. Wonderful friends- not just family. 

Amanda & Arnie live a life of service. Not only in the care of their 5 amazing children, but they serve in their church, the foster care/adoption community, in their friendships but also – Arnie is a police officer. He works most holidays & has been known to dress as Santa during Christmas time & ride around on his police motorcycle when protecting & serving his community (escorted by his chief). 

Their 2 youngest children are adopted. They were rescued from what would have been a life of pain, addiction & heartbreak. Now, they are THRIVING, wonderful little boys who will do great things in life. 

They have a family motto, “We do hard things.” They make the choice daily to do what is right – even when it’s hard or inconvenient. 
I’m thankful for these people. I’m so incredibly blessed by them & proud of them.
