So Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I have so much to be thankful for this year it makes me emotional. I will never be thankful that Carter got cancer, but I will always be thankful for God's grace and all the ways He provided during that rough time. We are so thankful for all of the wonderful doctors that Carter has/had, the way everything was over so quickly, and the many family members and friends that walked with us loving, encouraging, and praying for us. How wonderful that our little boy is with us and didn't have to have chemo and will be able to celebrate many many more Thanksgivings with us. When we look back at the day we were told Carter had a tumor and the days following, we are so amazed at the way God held us in His hands and took care of us. Yes we were emotional, and yes it was hard, but with God we made it and are now stronger because of it.
I am so thankful to all of you who prayed for Carter and us and who helped us through the nightmare. Thank you!
Hope you have a great day full of thanks!

We are so thankful for you guys too - and I too am amazed at how many thing around Carter's diagnosis there are to be thankful for. God is good, even when we don't understand. Love and miss you - and we need to schedule a Christmas get together before life gets too busy - and when is your race next week?

He looks and acts so healthy, it's hard to believe it's been such a short time ago. He's definitely been an answer to prayer. God is so good.
