Thanks to everyone!

Hi every one! Jon here. Don't worry, everyone is fine, usually the only time I leave a post on here is when something is not right, but not today!

This is something that I have been wanting to do for a while now and have finally gotten the chance to do so.

Just some quick background for those who don't know, I am a truck driver, and ever since our little Miss V. came into our lives, I had to go from driving local, to going over the road to make ends meet. I have always loved driving, but my family is so much more important to me, but when circumstances arise, you have to make sacrifice, and that's what has happened. I thank the Lord for giving me the skills to do it, it's a killer sometimes, but I get through. I normally leave out on Sunday night, and don't get back home till Friday night, sometimes, I do get home through the week, when things are slow, so with the economy the way it is right now, that is more often than usual.

So what I am trying to say is first and foremost, I give our Lord and Saviour all the thanks and praise for keeping me safe while I am on the road, and my three girls, Tina(my SUGARBABE), and my two Princesses, Gabby, and Miss V. safe and taking care of them while I am gone!

Now, on to all of you, from the bottom of my heart, I can not say it enough, but THANK YOU!
Everyone of you has been such a blessing to our family, and the love and support that you have given us is such a blessing. Not only have you helped Tina get through some tough times, but you have also helped me by being there for Tina when I am gone. Your thoughts and prayers have really helped her when I haven't been home, and I can not Thank you enough for that!

So again, first and foremost I again thank our Heavenly Father for all his blessings that he has given our family, and for placing all of you in our lives! I again thank everyone of you for everything, and we pray for all of you daily, and ask God to touch your lives like he has touched ours, and remember, one of my favorite phrases, "Don't tell God how big your storm is, tell the storm how Big Your God is!"

THANK YOU ALL again!

Love and Prayers to all,

Jon

Okay Jon, you have brought tears to my eyes. I love your family so much. Tina has helped me so much this past year and I'm just so thankful to have her as a friend.

You are a wonderful husband, father and friend. Tina is so blessed to have such a loving husband.
