Blessed!


Aren't they beautiful?! Yep, its an older picture, but I just love this one! I've really been thinking a lot this week. It all started when I was watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition this past Sunday. I've always loved that show & the fact that they do something incredible for families who deserve it. This week, the family was from outside of Cincinnati. A family of 5, with 4 of them having a life threatening condition. I mean, its hard enough with one child who has "special needs," but to have all of you children & your spouse?! I can't begin to imagine.

The three children were precious; two girls & an older brother. Big brother, like his Dad, has Chrone's disease. I'm not sure of all the particulars, but I know that it can be very painful. The two younger girls both had spinal muscular atrophy. Again, not sure of all the particulars, but they were both confined to wheelchairs.

I know that when I watch the show, I need to have a box of tissues close, & this week was no different. Such a greatful family with a great outlook on life. I guess when I have my down days (which are few & far between, & not one in sight for a while, I hope!) I just need to think about where we could be. All I can do is thank God for bringing us this far!

I promise I'm not down in the dumps, but just wanted to let everyone know we're all okay & very blessed! Thanks to all our family & friends (this includes all of my "heart family," too!) We love you guys!!

Such a cute picture. I love watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. It is so great to see those families get what they deserve...but it also makes me sad for the families that don't get things like that, but have just as many problems. I guess the world cannot be perfect.
