Give Thanks in ....

In 2011 I give thanks for...

The last Thanksgiving I spent with my entire family because it was our last 
before Walker's accident in May of 2009.  

 This is a treasured photo of our last Thanksgiving with Walker.  
 Rebekah, Hiller, Walker and Thomas taken at our family cabin. 

I also give thanks for the cabin because it has become the gathering hub on family holidays. 

 ....My parents,  siblings and extended family.  
I was lucky to grow up in a loving family that taught we what family was all about!
 I know they will always there if I need them.  

.....My mission trip to China in July and to Maria's Big House of Hope because I met some amazing women on my journey who will be life long friends.  Thankful also for Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman, Robin and Joyce Hill for making places like Maria's available for orphans.  My eyes have been opened and I will never be the same after seeing the orphans in China.  

I am thankful for the obvious things like my home, my work and my friends.  
Every Thanksgiving I give thanks for a special young man who taught
 me a lot about being a better person.  His life taught the importance of enjoying
 every minute with family and friends because those are borrowed minutes....

I miss you Walker and I always will but I know you are at peace and
 that is ultimately my wish for all those I love on this Thanksgiving and all holidays
....Rest in Peace...
