December 31, 2011

It is time to say Good-bye to 2011. What a ride, at least the last two months. I reflected on it yesterday and never in a million years would I have thought I would be experiencing what I am when 2011 began. And yet what a magnificent year.

We welcomed three new people into our family. Our Juliette, Lucy Belle and Ethan all joined us. Who could ask for anything better? Mark and Jacky took off for a great adventure in El Salvador and Tim found his way to Spain.

As I listened to one of my cancer tapes yesterday, it asked me to imagine the people who surround me, love me, and support me, as part of the army that will beat the cancer. I lay there thinking of the blessings of friend and family and visualizing all of you and many more. I saw family on the other side of the veil. I was overcome with emotion at the support, love, prayers and fasting that have gone up in my behalf. No one could be more blessed than I.

Then Kelly and I for our fun Happy New Year watched Mr. Krueger’s Christmas. In it Mr. Krueger’s says of the Savior, “He is my best friend.” I was touched as I thought of the love and tender mercies that have come into my life especially these last two months. Even yesterday Kelly was led to a friend who performed such a great service for us. The Lord put this individual right in Kelly’s path and he and his little family blessed me greatly. It seems everyday the Lord blesses me with what I need to make the day and do so to the best of what I have. You will never know how grateful I am for visits, cards, hats, a phone call, and knowing that you are thinking me. I can feel your prayers tangibly. They give me great strength.

So for all of you friends family—so that I ramble but know that I love you, you are part of my fighting army and we will battle this thru. Have a GREAT NEW YEAR!! I love you.
