happy birthday, dad!

This was a totally different birthday for my dad but we celebrated the fact that he is alive and well and on the mend! He celebrated by having chicken broth while the rest of the family enjoyed delicious food that dear friends have been bringing over. Dad is feeling better and getting stronger each day. All of his girls have been waiting on him and taking care of his every need. Yesterday he asked if he could have a bell to ring for service. I think he's feeling better! :)

Dad was tired, can you tell? :)



















I want to thank each and every one of you who have been praying for him and for us. You are such a blessing to us. There is no better feeling that knowing you are being prayed for and being taken care of by the greatest Physician. Thank you to the Anderson's and Fingal's for bringing dinner over on Saturday and Sunday and to the many more who are bringing meals to them this week. It was such a relief to the family knowing that we didn't have to worry about cooking.
God does have us on this journey for a reason. We are amazed by His mercy and grace. We will continue to trust in Him and see all that He has for us.
Thank you again for every word of encouragement and messages checking on us. I know that I have cherished each one and thank God for all of the selfless people who have been so gracious to us during this time.
