Thankful For


  • a home to rest in and walls to keep the weather out- whether it belongs to us (in 4 days) or those gracious enough to share theirs with us

  • good food, clean water and warm clothes - the basic needs we take for granted

  • a good, simple jobs that allow us to provide for those we love

  • good marriages - my own and those that have set an example and shown us that it's not perfection that leads to happiness

  • faith in a God who doesn't expect me to be perfect, but expects me to try none the less.

  • the eye opening experience that comes from working in a children's hospital which means I come home more grateful each day and always have a mental list of those who need our prayers handy

  • becoming a parent - the best present I've ever been given

  • and for all the things, big and small, that I really don't deserve.

  3. Well done. Love your list.

    Our family has been on the receiving end of gracious workers in a children's hospital. People with your kindheartedness...bring great comfort to those of us in need.

    Blessings! Pat

  4. Thank you, and God bless yours I hope your experience had a happy ending. In the grand scheme of things I probably do very little for these kids - I try to make and deliver their meds dutifully, have been an elevator confessor for a few parents and when I find a kid who really needs it they go to the top of my list. I've even stopped and silently prayed over a couple bags of dialysis and some other meds while I was on delivery. I'm happy to report that my top two focuses right now are doing splendidly though they've both been at deaths door.
