I'm a Lucky Lady!! #RedBoxLuck

If I had to tell you right now - off the top of my head - why I am a lucky person, I am sure that I could come up with at least ten reasons...
1. I have an absolutely amazing husband who supports me mentally, emotionally, and physically!
2. My children are phenomenal - they are loving, kind, smart, sweet, and silly!
3. My family has found a church that we love and where we learn a lot!
4. I am able to stay home with my children - I feel it is the most rewarding "job" ever!
5. I have pretty good grades, which will give me a good shot at getting into the nursing program, maybe even next year!
6. My family is healthy!
7. I have wonderful relationships with family, even those far away! I am lucky enough to be able to talk, pretty much daily, to my Oma and my dad. And we get to Skype with Oma and Papa -- I love Skype, what an amazing program!!
8. The weather is getting warmer, yay!
9. Every so often my husband, our daughters, and myself forget about everything else and just hang out and enjoy each other.

I could go on...but I am going to stop there for a minute. That last one is part of what this post is about!!
One of Emily's favorite family nights is "Family Movie Night." Most of the time, when we want to watch a movie we will rent it from Redbox, seriously you can't beat a movie for a dollar!! And now through March 17 (which happens to be my big brother's birthday -- Happy Birthday Brent!!) Redbox has a "Lucky to have friends like you" promotion going on where every time a movie is rented through your special code, you will receive a free movie too!!! In case any of you wanted to rent a movie and get my family a free movie, click here!!

So, I realize that I told you that I could come up with at least ten reasons, but then only listed here comes number ten. I am a lucky woman to have friends and people like you who come to my blog and read what I have to say. Thanks guys and gals! I have found some great blogs and learned so many things from some of the blogs I read, I get to enjoy a laugh with others, know from others that I am not alone in different stages of marriage and parenting, and through even more blogs I get to connect with other Christian women and share encouragement and insight. So, I guess that I am also luck to have one day stumbled across a blog. I think that I might have been one of the last people to discover blogs, but I am glad I did!!

Thank you for taking the time to read this, now go to your closest Redbox and get yourself a movie and have your very own Family Movie Night!!! But before you go, tell me what makes you lucky?!!?
