I’m not crazy! Now I am all healed (thanks to wonderful physical therapists) and able to stand at my craft desk and make cards to my heart’s content.

    Mary B says:

    Today, I am very thankful for my father. You see, he died 10 days ago, on August 4, at age 85. His funeral ended up being a celebration service, conducted by several men with whom he had worked decades ago. Even at the visitation, there was lots of laughter (and some tears) as people reconnected. Even my mom, his wife of 61 years, said she was surprised by how much she laughed while standing right next to the coffin. I am grateful that he was a man of God who taught by example. He was from the generation that scrimped and saved instead of buying everything new in the stores, and because of that my mom will not have to worry at all about her financial future. She will be coming to live with us soon, and I know she will be sad for a long time to come, but I am grateful for my Dad’s legacy.

    Today I am thankful that my DH is feeling well and not having any major side effects from his chemo for colo-rectal cancer. He is halfway through his treatments with 4 more to go over the next 8 weeks. My fingers are crossed that he continues to tolerate the chemo without any problems. It’s been a long road since we got the news last October but we are hopeful that he will recover.

    This year more than ever I have to say that I am incredibly thankful for the most wonderful friends and family that I have around me. It has been the most challenging year that I have ever faced, yet the support and love I have had to get me through the darkest of days has been overwhelming. Faith, hope and love……all three mean more to me now than they ever have. xx
