Well, I did it again... in less than two weeks I somehow managed to break another cell phone. The timing could not be worse. I opened a cabinet door above our desk in our kitchen yesterday...Thanksgiving... and a stapler fell and landed right on the edge of my new cell phone and shattered the screen. Anyway, I was in disbelief. I think I am giving some big lessons lately for some reason. I had not even called my family and friends to wish them HAPPY THANKSGIVING. I had texts that I had got in the morning that I had not responded to yet. I'm sorry!!!! The phone is completley BROKEN.
Well, I guess... all you can do is-
Devan, Gentry and Taylor came over and spent Thanksgiving with us. This year, I actually for the first time ordered our dinner. Honestly, it was the best idea for us. We ordered from Cracker Barrel and it was fabulous and only $59.00 and we had lots of food left over. Now that is crazy right? We picked it up and it was hot and in containers and ready to be served. It was a blessing to not to have to worry about all the food prep and cooking right now. I took photos (on my broken cell phone) and we went around the table 3 times and talked about ONE thing that we are thankful for right now. Tears were shed and it was very sweet. The feelings of love and gratitude for God in our life is evident. Each of the children at one time said they are thankful for our family. That always makes me happy! We sure missed having everyone with us. SO HARD.... SO HARD..... to not have Ty, McKay and the rest of the kids here.
Well, let's just say as far as a update, they said it would not be easy and they were not lying. I am taking it literally day by day and am constantly praying for strengthn. I am really tired from trying to do everything and always feel like I should be doing more. I hate to complain because Ty is enduring so MUCH more. It breaks my heart to the core to see what he is enduring each day. He has chemo twice a day right now. I don't know how he is doing it. I am trying really hard to be positive and keep him encouraged. I can really see especially this last week how much it has effected my two boys. I keep busy and that actually has helped me a lot. I know that there is always things that are good and blessing to be grateful for. I am especially remembering that right now. I hope you each had a wonderful THANKSGIVING with those that you love!!!!!
Oh, in getting the house ready for Ty to come home, I have been purging, cleaning EVERYTHING like crazy. Taylor found a few class kits from 2013. We had them all sold- but four are left from people who never paid so we are offering them again. If you want one- first come and if you pay today or tomorrow- Taylor said she will get in the mail that day.
