Thanksgiving

Although (or perhaps because) we're going through a difficult time, we are even more mindful of our blessings than usual. Of the hundreds and hundreds of things we are thankful for, here are just a few:

Life (deeply thankful!)

Love of friends and family

Medical technology

English Oaks Convalescent Hospital

Four-hour passes from English Oaks Convalescent Hospital

The beauty of the outdoors

Brass music

Good food

Friends who are able to get out of bed early :-)

Hot showers

AND

A God who loves us down to our toes!

Dear Dave and Heidi,

I just ran across this quote by Eugene Peterson a few days ago and was reminded of it by your blog entry: "Trouble does its best work when it drives us to God." How true we've found that to be!

Love,
Mom

Being able to see your family all together yesterday gave US much to be thankful for.
Thank you, again, for the continued updates. Your blog has been so wonderful. You have done a great job.(With EVERYTHING.)
God's grace truly is amazing, isn't it?!
Love Tiffany
