Getting ready for Thanksgiving!!!
As everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving, I hope you remember and are grateful for what you have. There is a family in my church who one year ago lost there 4 year old daughter to kidney failure. It was exactly one year today that I was hospitalized, because my fallopian tube busted and I was internally bleeding. I almost died on the table but God gave me another chance at last. Yesterday my cousin's son Nathaniel would have been 8 but he passed away unexpectedly on May 9, 2001 at the young age of 18 months. It was the worse day of mine and my families life. I got to watch that sweet boy enter the world. He was 8 weeks early and weighed 4 pounds and 9 ounces and was 16 inches long. He was doing so well but his immune system was weak and he got any kind of virus that went around. He seemed so healthy the few weeks before it happened in fact 2 weeks earlier at a family Easter gathering he was running around without having an asthma attack. But we know he is in heaven and probably playing with my 3 babies up there.
The good news though is Nathaniel's mommy(Felicia) found out she was pregnant yesterday. She has Austin(11) and after Nathaniel was born Her husband got a vasectomy. She got a divorce because her ex husband was physically and emotionally abusive. Now she is happily remarried to a very nice Christian man and treats her like a queen. I am so happy for her and I hope that things will work out.
On another note my dear sweet husband is helping me cook. We are doing 2 turkeys this year. He is the best. Today I cooked lentil soup which I got from Sara Snow. It was delicious and the kids loved it!!! I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!!!! (This is the Christmas picture from last year. I will post the new one once it is taken).
