Our Especial Heather Is Thankful

I am thankful that I have a Savior who never lets me go. His answers may not be my answers and He may not answer in my timeframe, but they are perfect answers. I may not know, this side of heaven, the answers to those questions, but He does. And that is good enough for me. When I seek Him, I find Him. When He seems far away, that is because I have moved. When I don’t have the words to convey what is on my heart, He just knows. He doesn’t make promises that He cant keep.
I am thankful for my family. So very thankful for my family. They make my life so rich and joyous. I have such wonderful parents who would give their lives to see me healthy and whole again. I have a wonderful wonderful husband who, just by looking at me says what is on his heart. And my kids. They are the light of my life. Every.Single.One.Of.Them.
I am thankful for my husband’s job. They have been so understanding and supportive through this cancer ordeal. Every time I go to his office I am greeted with hugs and smiles and well wishes. I am so thankful that my husband has co-workers who love the Lord and pray for me and for him on a daily basis.
I am thankful for my church. Words can’t describe how thankful I am for the people of GCC. They have stepped up and made dinners and bought groceries…. but most of all they pray for me. They pray for my family. They greet me on the Sundays that I am able to attend church with a hug and a smile, and when I am not able, they understand and hug me doubly hard the next Sunday
I am thankful for Laura. She and I have been through so much together. She is a real true friend and I am glad that she is in my life.
I am thankful for you. Words cannot convey how thankful I am to have the support and prayer from you. I know, at any given moment in my day that someone is praying for me. That gives me strength and courage in my lowest points. I often read your comments from past entries over and over again just for strength. Your care and concern are so evident in your comments, and I am thankful for you.
I am thankful for my health, as crazy as that sounds. I am thankful that this morning I felt well enough to go for a walk and really put my thoughts in order. On the days that I don’t feel well, I am thankful for medicine and doctors who continually amaze me with their knowledge.
I am thankful for my support group. I cant tell you what a blessing those ladies are to me. It is one thing to talk to someone who isn’t dealing with cancer and have them empathize, but it is a totally different thing to sit in a room with women who know EXACTLY what you are talking about because they have been through it too.
I am thankful that, in every aspect of my life, I can find something to be thankful fo
