Grateful Hearts

Last year we spent Thanksgiving alone worrying about Emma's upcoming MRI and what it would reveal. It was a dark holiday and honestly we did not have much to celebrate, times were tough. This year although we added cancer, surgeries, chemo treatments, and giant medical bills we have so much to be thankful for. I wanted to take a minute to be grateful.

For friends that bring light in dark times and help with out asking,
For coffee that helps Mommy with multitasking.
For Gracie playdates on chemo days and help with the kids during church,
For Brad's supportive boss and co-workers.
For a church family to share a Thanksgiving meal and provide prayer,
For essential oils and hairdressers that make it easier to lose hair.
For our nurses, doctors and supportive staff,
For the psychologists and child life specialists who make us laugh.
For surprise mail from friends to make life sweet,
For charities that help us pay bills and make ends meet.
For Make a Wish sending our family to Hawaii for some fun,
For advice from fellow chemo Moms.
There is much to be thankful for this year so thank you to everyone far and near!

Emma update: She got her glasses this week and loves them! I thought it would be a battle to keep them on her but I think that letting her pick them herself helped a lot. She treats them like another fashion accessory. Next week we do not have chemo but we do have a mandatory check in for blood work and stats. The following week she has off from hospitals all together and we get to go to Disneyland!
