I'm thankful for so much.

I love this time of year. People are busy, but happy. The weather is changing. Today, I'm officially only 2 weeks away from my final chemo. My energy is back and we're looking forward to hosting dinner tomorrow for family from South Dakota.

I'm thankful for my husband who doesn't complain. He does so much around here to help. He tells me how proud he is of me and reminds me daily that I'm a "hot bald chick." :)

I'm so thankful for my kiddos.
They love me unconditionally. Although they're loud, their hugs are like no other.
They make me get out of bed every day. They make me stay positive and FIGHT.

This is their Thankful Tree. They drew pics of things they like. It's full of words, pictures of turkeys and feathers to decorate the branches with. It's my favorite tree.

I'm thankful that my mom takes such good care of my family. This lifts a huge weight off me on the days I'm struggling.

She will be leaving to go back to South Dakota on Friday. We'll sure miss her!

I'm thankful for my friends.
They're amazing. They never give up on me. They keep my spirits up. They send thoughtful gifts, texts and calls. They don't make me feel like a nuisance. It really makes me feel proud to know such great people. They make me feel loved. I love them.

Want to see the thoughtful gift I just received from Danielle, Keri, Kelly, Mandi and Melissa?
They had some of our friends take a picture of themselves with a sign of hope. The pictures were then printed out on adhesive paper and sent to me. I framed them today and can't wait to hang them!

I love seeing which words they chose.
I know these ladies will hold a very special part of my heart forever.

Hope you all count your blessing this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!
