Last night, our family played a little game where everyone writes down five of their favorite things and we go around the table and successful guesses earn you points.
Here were Trey's five.
1. Bass Fishing
2. Bottle Rocket (An obscure independent film made by and starring Luke and Owen Wilson.)
3. The Office
Do you notice anything peculiar?
Me too. I got lumped into the family group with Trey's second-cousin-thrice-removed, Phyllis.
My only consolation was that Jesus also didn't make his list so I'm in pretty good company.
I'm not going to say it hurt my feelings, really, but I milked it for a good six hours just for fun.
We had a great day with family and friends but the day's sweetest gift to Trey and I came after we had gotten home and settled in to watch the A&M/UT slaughter, I mean game.
Dea and Darius sat down and handed us a three page note they had written on the computer.
We have never had a family like this one. This family is so great. It's very hard to be down in the Hill's house. Sometimes I get sad thinking of my past but when I walk in the house, it's a light of happiness shining on me. We are so happy to live with you all. (Tee, Graham, Olivia, Sadie, Mr. Trey, and Melissa)
Melissa (Momma Lissa) is a non-stop hard working woman. She makes sure the food is done on time, clothes is washed when needed, money is provided when needed and etc. We love her. She made us feel welcome when we first walked in the doors of the Hill's house. It's a blessing to have a step-mother like her.
Same for Trey Hill (Brett Farve). He is a hard working man. He is busy a lot, but still somehow pulls it through to hang with us, his kids, and wife.
We love this family and am glad to be a part of it. For a second, we thought we was at the end of our road. Until, God blessed us with a great family. He saved us. This was a true blessing to us. We hope you all are happy to have us, because we are thankful for you all.
Dea and Darius
Trey and I were left speechless and in tears and thankful for the gifts these young men have been to our whole family over the past year. There are certainly many days, like yesterday, when we are discouraged and heartbroken, and wondering what the Lord's got in store. This was truly a sweet gift of encouragement that we both needed.
It almost made up for me not getting top billing on Trey's list.
Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
