Today I am thankful for...
...A husband who is a partner, a best friend, a support system and who is willing to share all of these trials and challenges with me.
...A son who is so easy-going that he is not bothered by Brenna's illnesses, constant crying or attention demands.
...A daughter who, despite all of the odds against her and all of the challenges she has overcome and is currently fighting, looks at me with big trusting and loving eyes and just wants to be cuddled and kissed.
...Physicians and specialists who are in contact with us at all hours of the day, night and weekends in order to help solve or at least try to alleviate the health issues that Brenna is struggling with.
...Family members and good friends who are willing to give up their free time to assist me with the care of my children and household and who encourage me daily.
...God, who I know is right beside me with every tear I cry and every aching pull of my heart and knot in my stomach... who I know has a bigger plan than I can even begin to comprehend at this time and who I am being asked again and again to put all of my trust in...
