This past year has been one of the most stressful of my life. And yet, I have so very much to be thankful for.
I got to spend several months with my precious grandsons in Arizona.
Beautiful Daughter #2 came home safely from Iraq.
I got Oscar!
Daughter #3 married the love of her life.
I have smiled until my face hurt at the antics of these two little boys.
My dad met Jesus face to face. He’s finally free from pain. I sat up with him all night before he left us. It was the sweetest time and I’m so thankful for being able to spend those hours alone with him.
Two days later, my sweet father in law joined him. I’m pretty sure they had a nice visit over pie.
I have traveled more miles this year than ever before, mostly to Wisconsin to help my parents, but also to Missouri and Arizona. I’ve enjoyed having my kids home for visits. I’ve had adventures with this guy.
There have been glorious moments and heartbreaking moments. Through it all, I can say with all certainty, that God is good.
I am thankful.
