I feel so blessed today...
Not just for my family, friends, home, warm clothes and food, a house and good health
but for the fact that both my parents are alive and well today!
You see last year, on Thanksgiving Day I was back and forth between two hospital rooms...
My Mother was in ICU and in a "twilight" coma -
my Dad was suffering physical and mental problems
as a result of chronic alcohol abuse and the stress of my Mom's fall/injury...

It was a dark, sad time in my life, cannot believe it has been a year but it was actually a blessing in disguise!

Thanks to all who prayed and supported me and my family...

Blessings to you all - I hope you are spending your day exactly the way you want to
and in the event that you feel sad, worried, hopeless or you know someone who is
take comfort in knowing that you are not alone and anything is possible if you turn your
worries over to the Lord!  I promise he will not fail you!

In the Moment

A few weeks ago, Christian's preschool class
visited the Pumpkin Patch.  Lots of Fall Fun there...
corn maze, petting zoo, games, and a big "pillow"
that all the kids got to bounce on ( picture a big in ground trampoline)...
We took a hayride out to the "patch" and picked out the perfect pumpkin!
The skies were so blue and the sun was shining so bright!  The air was crisp
and he and I had the best time together...I am acutely aware that he is my baby, the "last" one
there will not be any more preschool field trips, Halloween "parades" and class parties.
Truly, it makes my heart ache.  Why does it take the last child to make you slow down?  To savor the time, to live IN THE MOMENT...that is not easy but so amazing when we do!
So, I am taking it all in and not for granted - the chubby dimpled hands, the naps, the cuddles, the time alone together when the his brother and sister are in school, the field trips, the ABC's song, the class parties and all the precious preschool moments...we are making so many memories together and I know this last year of Preschool will be over in the blink of an eye!

I love you Christian!
