Very Thankful

There are so many things that I am very thankful for these days.

- I am thankful for an amazing church family. They have sent Daron card of encouragement over the last month. They ask about him every time they see me. They ask Taylor specifically how he's doing through all this. They have sent notes of encouragement to Taylor & I.

- I am thankful that my Mom has been so supportive through all this. Looking back we got to see how God had her work in long-term nursing facilities in order to help me get through this.

- I am thankful for supportive friends as well. Each one of my friends has helped me through this in their own unique way.

- I am thankful for those who have supported me in their own unique way. There are many people who I don't know who are praying for Daron & our family. Thank you to each person who is supporting us in prayer!!

- I am thankful for Daron's family.

- Most importantly, I am thankful to my Heavenly Father! He has given me so much strength & peace during this time. I have learned that everything happens in His time & for His glory. I stand on the words of David in Psalm 139:16b "All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be." That is a wonderful promise to remember!! God knew that all of this would happen long before any of us were born. My Father knew that I would need to lean on Him more then ever during all of this. He knew that I would be begging for peace & strength each morning before even getting out of bed. He knew that I would be looking into nursing facilities & He led me to the perfect one. Thank you Father for your unfailing love, unending strength & peace beyond comprehension!!!
