I feel so blessed!  God has blessed me beyond measure!!  I have so much to be thankful for.  No matter my health may not be the best, but it could be much worse.  I have the world's greatest greatest husband, 3 wonderful healthy beautiful children, and family and friends that have blessed my life. Most of all, I am thankful to the Lord for His love, grace, mercy,  faithfulness, strength, and hope.  That He has made a difference in my life.  He is my everything and I'm so grateful for HIM!

Wishing each of you a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!  Praying that you each have a blessed day!  Don't forget to take the time to thank the Lord for His blessings.  Someone eat some mashed taters for me.  I don't think I better the chance. ;)  

We are going to Peoria to be with Shane's side tomorrow.  Normally, we are in Texas during this time to be with my in-laws for Thanksgiving. They made the long trip to see us to give me a break with all that has gone on with me.  Thankful that they are here.  :)  

I have an infusion of iron again Friday at 8:30 in the morning. My counts went down some, but they said not to expect it to go up with the first infusion or so.  My white count is down, so I have to be very careful in crowds.  With it being low, I can catch a bug easier so in crowds and stores it's safer for me to wear a mask they said so I don't pick up anything.  Also good hand washing -which I try to always do with my hickman line.  I want to keep as healthy as I can.  No more sickies:)

I wanted to share the lyrics to the song Blessings by Laura Story...

                                   We pray for blessings. We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

'Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe

When friends betray us When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart That this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy
What if trials of this life The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise

Thank you Lord for the prayers you have answered and for what your going to do.  You are my All and I continue to lean on You.  Thank you all for you prayers for my family and me.  Good is so good and I am blessed beyond measure!
