I, too, want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. We are thankful for so much this year. Mostly I am thankful for answered prayers. God has taken such good care of me and my family. It has helped so much to be able to have a running conversation with my Creator, Redeemer and Friend. Thank you, Olivia, for reminding me again about the blessing I enjoy and the blessings that are to come.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Just as Laura said, the Lord has deeply blessed me and I, too, have had such a wonderful year.
Whenever I am in a bind I always think to myself, 'Think about it.' And before you know it the folder of Olivia would open up and I would think about her strength, her beauty, and her parents. Soon I would be lost in thought of every obstacle this amazing little girl has leaped over without a problem. And how she continues to strive.
I was thinking today before we went to grandma's house for dinner. 'What am I truely thankful for?' And after a while, I said 'I'm thankful for the blog.'
Jodi and Ryan, you will never understand the impact your family has had on my life. Everyday, as I have said in the past, it is such a wonderful experience to log on and read the latest news. When I'm having a rough day at school, being able to read what's new with your daughter is the best part of my day. And I'm so glad that you are sharing your experiences with me and everyone. Because if you hadn't, I would go to school, have a crumby day. Go home and probably not be so great then. And then go to bed and repeat the same thing over and over. But with the blog, everyday I'm expecting to hear good news. Even if Olivia has had a little setback. I'm still so grateful that I can stay updated. Your words and faith have helped me in more ways than I can describe. And I thank you so much for that.
So when I sat down at the dinner table today. I thought, 'Thanks'. For everything you do.

Love you all so much and obviously, think about you all the time.
Stay Strong,
