Whole Lotta Love...Day 1

Happy February my dear friends. It is the really cold today, tons of schools are 2 hours late and we are under a wind chill advisory with windchills between -25 and -35. Other than that...well it is suppose to warm up starting already tomorrow. Welcome to my first post in my Whole Lotta Love series. I hope you enjoy it!
I of course have to start out this series by what I love the most and that is my family! Without my family I am nothing. I never would have gotten through my big health scare, the months in the hospital, the months of rehab and my continuing troubles without the love and support of my family. I live each day thankful for being alive and also trying to show them how much they all mean to me.
My mom and dad. My mom is my best friend and I am truly daddy's little girl, even at the age I am!
My sister Tammy. We are both single and live in the same town, she is my second best friend. I remember I was always a bit relieved when she would come to the hospital and visit because no one can make you laugh like a sister can. I love her dearly and an helping her through her MS journey now.

My brother Mike, my SIL Jane, nephews Matthew and Logan and my only niece Michelle. I truly never knew this special kind of love until I became an Aunt. I will treasure the memories of these three growing up forever. Thank you Mike and Jane for the gift of your children.
My brother Jon, SIL Judy and nephews Ian and Ivan. There has always been a special bond between my brother Jon and I. Maybe it was because I was the oldest and he was the youngest and I was his protector, or maybe it is because no one can tease me like he can. LOL What a gift we got 2 years ago when Jon married Judy and brought her, Ian and Ivan into our family. They are so special and just made the family love even better.
And then of course in a little over a month we will have another part of the family joining us. Isaiah is doe on Mark 8th and I love him already.
Thank you all for joining in my whole lotta love day!
