God is good~

God has been good to me....God is so good~I remember singing these words as a little girl in church and as I reflect on all the changes that our family has been through; I find that indeed He has been good.  Hubby now has a job!!  That he really enjoys...with a boss that treats his employees well.  We have just returned from a vacation with the children that got us away for Thanksgiving...a good time was had by all. Austin has finally gotten a diagnoses; Connective tissue disease. Now he will be on medication and Lord willing and with much prayer; his condition will improve.  There have been many little things along the way that add up and that I will try to never take for granted again.  Now I am praying to be able to embrace this third holiday season without my dad.  There is the void of his presence at his favorite time of year.  I don't suppose it will get easier for many holidays to come~but I want to embrace the spirit we once had before his passing. So I am going to decorate something we haven't done in two years.  We will have a tree~we all agreed.  Last year no one wanted one...and we will watch Christmas specials and plan what to do for Christmas.  God was and is so good to me.
