share your joy: family and friends

I just recently connected with Christy and I am so smitten with her "Share your joy" idea, so tonight I am linking up!

I have many joys, been when it comes down to it family and friends are my JOY

This is a little old, but most of the family except we are missing sweet Emrie, My brothers wife Melanie and their kids and sister's husband Justin :)
My sister and my mom
My amazing dad....did I tell you he is a pastor? Yep, it's true! I am a pastors kid :)
All the cousins together :)
Do I have beautiful friends or what? Wow!
LOVE them...so does Emrie :) (she was in my belly then)
This woman is my best friend and my mom...she is amazing
Went to the casino and won about $10...we are high rollers

These children deserve a post for themselves, but I consider them not only my friends, but my family.  I am in love with the children of India and if I could take them all home to live with me I would.  

They are my true JOY

They bless me more than I think I have ever blessed them or ever could

We promised them someday we will be back...and we will.  But oh how I long for it to be sooner than later.  

I miss my family from India and I think Emrie will really love them too! :)
