Happy Thanksgivng thoughts

As I sit here in Memphis with Tessa and Annie Grace I can't help but be so very thankful for all the good in my life, even today as I try to deal with yet another problem caused by this horrible cancer I realize that we have so much to be thankful for! I met a woman in passing yesterday on the elevator and she was going up to the 4th floor. (On the 4th floor the kids have or are waiting for bone marrow transplants.) Her son was not doing well and there was nothing more that could be done for him. My heart went out to her.It could have easily been me saying the same words that mother was saying.
I am so thankful for my children . My son and his wife Marie, with out them we would not be able to manage . For my wonderful husband Mike, who is at home with 6 young children, cooking,cleaning,changing diapers and being both a mom and a dad while I am away. I don't tell him enough how much I appreciate him. For friends who have: cooked meals, pies, bacon green bean bundles(yum),sent packages to Tessa, called me or listened to me while I talked and prayed for us. I am thankful for perfect strangers who have given us gift cards for gas, meals and prayers....
I am thankful that I am not hearing bombs everyday and seeing death constantly, that my children have enough to eat and hopefully they will continue to grow up in a free Nation.I am very thankful to the American people for putting so much faith in man of color , so that he may in turn give hope to my children that they truly can be anything they want in life.
Most of all we are thankful to God for being so awesome !
