Happy Thanksgiving - We are BLESSED! nothing more can be said about how grateful our hearts are today that our family is together - even though we are so far away from home and we miss everyone else ... we are together and BLESSED! Today, I just sit back and count each blessing and thank God for everything He has pulled us through ....we only ask that you continue to be with us along this journey and you keep Your perfect healing hands on our little boy! My precious NickyBear!

So today a verse I memorized with Stacy Whitefield in our first bible study comes to mind today ...

1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

I will leave you with 2 posts I read today the first is from Christie - Aaron Bell's Mom (Aaron the Amazing):::

My heart breaks as I think of the parents who will not have their child with them this Thanksgiving and upcoming holiday season. My heart breaks for the families who know that this will be their last Thanksgiving together. Some seem to be able to be thankful for the time they had with their child. They have become leaders in the fight against childhood cancer. They are doing wonderful things to honor the memory of their child and raise awareness. Others seem to have a much harder time dealing with the unfair, wasteful loss. I pray that their pain can some how be eased. I pray about how I would act and react if it were me. May God's presence be felt by each family who has lost a child to cancer or for any other reason.

This one I find so dear from a 19 year old named Maggie we just adore at St Jude:::

I hope that you have a great Thanksgiving. I, on the other hand, will be having the best Thanksgiving I have ever had.Because for some reason going through this has allowed me to see the beauty in things I had forgotten were beautiful.
