"Slowing Down To Be Thankful"

Through all the business of these past few days, I don't want to ever miss the opportunities to be thankful and grateful for all God has done for me. I had chemo on Monday and have the fewest side affects this whole week. I don't like talking about it because I feel Satan waits around the corner waiting to still my joy. Even with a small stomach bug, this has been a really good week. We've had blessings of rain, thunderstorms and cooler weather brought to Northwest Arkansas. Thank you Jesus!!!

Jordan and I met with the wedding coordinators at church this morning and will have 2 more meetings before the wedding. You would think that 78 more days left until her wedding, our stress level would be very high, but God is giving us both a peace that everything will come together. I told Jordan if we had a year to plan a wedding, we would take the full year but since we had less than 90 days, we will do what we can and enjoy every moment together. There are several that have offered to help us in many ways and we are thankful to know we are not in this alone.

Tony will be moving his mom, aka Grandma, into an assisted living facility tomorrow. We went to the storage building to organize her things to make it easier for he and Bryan to move. I'm excited to fix her room up for her before she moves in. Her room has been repainted and new carpet was being put in today. Most of her furniture should fit into her room and I'm praying she will like her new place.

Today I am thankful for my life, family, health, cooler weather, a home, food, God's love and so much more!!!

"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."

  1. Janet, Just stopped by from Kelly's Korner and so enjoyed browsing through your blog. I see that you are battling cancer. Bless your sweet heart! I will certainly add you to my prayer journal. I have 4 dear friends all battling cancer right now.

    And, I see you and your daughter are planning her wedding. I had 5 months to plan our daughter's and it was such a special time and such fun. I'm sure you all are enjoying this time as well.

    I will look forward to getting to know you in the months ahead. Blessings abundant!
