So much to be thankful for

Even though it's been a tough year, I have a lot to be thankful for.

We started the year out in eager anticipation for a healthy new baby, and though we we were so overwhelmed with the news that Madeline would be born paralysed and many other complications, she has been such a blessing to us already. She's had relatively good health and few scares, and I'm grateful for that.

Daddy leaving us was the absolute hardest thing that I've faced this year, but even that provides us much to be thankful, especially that we know where he is and that he no longer has to deal with the stress and problems of everyday life.

We are so grateful for all of our friends and family and church family that have stood beside us through the thick and thin of this year. Glen and I are ready to move on from being the needy ones to helping others, but thank you so much for your patience with all of our drama. Hopefully this next year will only include one surgery (on Maddy's feet), and that everything else will be smooth sailing!

Thank you, Glen, for allowing this year to draw us closer together rather than apart, and for being a man close to God's heart and his family.

And could a mother ask for any sweeter little girls?? They're the love of my life.
