Thankful

Three years ago a turkey bakes in the oven. A new tablecloth spreads out, harvest themed napkins at each place setting. We're warm in our house and warm in our fall sweaters. Comfort- that we won't feel again for a very long time.

Call 9-1-1. Rush out into the brisk air, ride in an ambulance. Cold hospital all around us. Wires, tests, whispers, lights, medicines. Life will not be the same again. Thanksgiving meal brought in on a plate with plastic wrap on top. Definitely not the same.



Three years later our home is warm. Our family is together. Our son is healed. Our first Thanksgiving that we can truly celebrate again.

Two nights ago Noah asked Jesus into his heart.

We are Thankful.

    You make me cry, Stephanie. I'm so happy for Noah and all of you. I feel like I know you for so long.

    I'm happy too that you are able to celebrate Thanksgiving again ... in happier moments. Hope that lasts forever....

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    I think Digging the Best out of Us as Parents would be a wonderful little present for you, your friends and families (Would you please leave a comment after you see it? Thanks dear). Hope you enjoy it!

    Much love,
