Thanksgiving thoughts~

Been quite the busy week~ with Thanksgiving and getting ready to begin work this week.  We had a quiet holiday with just Tom the kids and I and Titi Sylvia.  My brother popped in for dessert with his wife and my niece.  The kids have spent the past several days at her house decorating and keeping her company.  I think it did them all a world of good.  She has been a real blessing to us.  She has been a stabilizing force in the kids lives since dad's passing.  I did not see my mom~ she has been quite busy socially.  I did call her though to wish her a Happy Thanksgiving.  I am very thankful that the Lord has given me this chance to work.  I know that it will relieve some stress from Tom and the kids.  I am hoping to surprise the kids with a Christmas tree this weekend.  So many of our things have gone missing since the move~ so it will be a little bit of replacement at a time.  We have always decorated the whole house for Christmas...last year with dad's passing we didn't have a I am going to try and remedy this!  The girls are going to be very busy the next couple of weeks with choir and Gabby with singing in the band as well.  Lord willing once my training is over I will be able to get a doctor for Austin.  I so want him to be well; so he can start to live like a teenager.  I continue to pray  for work for Tom and a home that will give Austin his own room.  I know God knows and sees the needs of our family...and I know his timing is perfect.  Just have to remind myself of this~  We are so blessed in so many ways...when I start to get discouraged I remind myself of the blessings that we do have~ so much more than many.  Praying you all have a blessed week and that the Lord would give each and everyone of you just what you need when you need it.
