So very thankful…

 
 

I can hardly believe that today is Thanksgiving. This year has literally flown by in a whirlwind, and many times I've wished I could slow down time.

 

As I look back over this year, I see so many things to be thankful for; things that go beyond the everyday blessings that God graciously gives.

 

I see a year that has been very different than the one before; one that has been on a path of healing rather than one laced with sorrow.

 

 

So much happened last year, so many tears and so much loss; a relationship severed and hearts left broken and crushed.

 

It was a year filled with so many levels of crisis that I began to wonder if our lives would ever be normal again.

 

And yet, here we are, a whole year later, and life has taken on a very different–yet calm and comfortable–type of norm.

 

 

Though there's still sadness over the loss of a child who has chosen to leave, there's also a peace that now flows through our home; an unspoken sensitivity and protectiveness that fills our hearts and shows in our day to day lives.

 
I've said many times that I would never have chosen the events of these past two years; however, I wouldn't trade for anything the precious lessons I've learned, or the sweetness of my family after having walked through such an awful storm.
 
 

Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! ~ Psalm 118:1
