Thankful - Thursday November 8

I'm very thankful for the location the Lord has put me in and the excellent medical facilities nearby.  Being 20 minutes from UIHC has been a GODSEND during Morgan's leukemia treatments, as well as with managing Will's arthritis!

Thankful - Tuesday November 6

I'm really thankful that this election will be over tonight.  I have to say I'm tired of all of the phone calls during dinner, the TV ads and wasted money on bulk mailings to our home.  With that said, I'm still grateful for this country and for the chance we all have to voice our choice.

New Family Picture

Through our journey with Morgan's illness, we've become acquainted with a wonderful photographer here in eastern Iowa.  She has taken some photos of Morgan for the upcoming Man & Woman of the Year campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's yearly fundraiser.  Morgan will be the 2013 Girl of the Year.  Below are some of the photos she took of Morgan:

We also had her shoot some family photos as well and the photo below is the first sneak peek we have but I can't WAIT to see the rest!

Thankful - Monday November 5

I'm thankful for the right to vote. I'm thankful for this country and that my voice (quiet as it may be) can be heard.

Thankful - Sunday November 4

I'm thankful for the joy AND the pain in my life. Thankful for the growth of my faith and the guiding hand of my Father in heaven. Always. I am never alone.

Thankful - Saturday November 3

I'm thankful for my extended family. My in-laws who love me as their own and are so giving and helpful. My incredible grandparents who have always been there for me and are such an example of commitment to family and each other. My cousins who I've shared both good times and bad. I have such fond memories of our times together. I love each of you!
