I am feeling very behind on my posts.
Saturday Nov. 10th: I’m thankful that my kids got up and couldn’t wait to go outside and play in the snow with one another. I’m thankful we have great neighborhood kids (and a couple AWESOME parents) who came out and all had a snowball fight. I’m thankful for the opportunity I have to sit and play XBOX games with my sweetheart. That is not something I ever dreamed I’d be thankful for but we really do enjoy playing together or watching each other play a game. I’m thankful for those nights that you just have to get take out and we had delicious Buffalo Wild Wings, YUMMY…
Sunday Nov. 11th: We hardly ever skip church but on this day when our kids got up had breakfast then went right back to sleep we decided that they must be really exhausted and didn’t make them get up to go to church. Our “luck” would have it the one day we miss is the last day in Jacob’s Ranch 2nd Ward. We received a text from our great neighbor to go to the meeting at the Stake Building to hear about all the ward boundary changes. As it turns out we are now in the Summerhill Ward which I know will be wonderful. Just today I’ve met and reconnected with several ladies in the ward that I’m excited to meet and get to know. But I also have some very sad feelings, we will not be in the ward of so many friends we’ve grown to love and to not see them weekly will be difficult. I know I will keep in touch with them and I’m very thankful for the ease in keeping in touch these days. And I hope to have some get togethers as well. But what I am most thankful for is the time organizing and praying our leaders put into all these changes so that they are how the Lord wants them and not how the members want them. I’m thankful for their worthiness to feel the Lord’s spirit and act upon his will on our behalf. I’m thankful for the knowledge I have so that I can know this is where my Heavenly Father wants me to be right now.
Monday Nov. 12: Yesterday Amber Walsh (Jack’s) mom posted a video of Jack singing along to a song they love. When I saw the video tears streamed down my face. I’m thankful for the opportunity we had as parents to make a choice that saved Jack’s life. I’m thankful for a son who was so perfect that he didn’t have to stay here on earth too long and that through his short life it was part of his mission to save a life. I’m thankful that Jack’s family is open to us being a part of his life. I’m thankful they let us watch him grow and that one day they want to meet us in person as much as we want to meet them. I’m thankful for little Jack and all the joy all his pictures and video’s bring to me, especially when I’m sad and missing my Gabie Baby.
Here is Jack’s video:
