Friends

Thankful Thursday... Yesterday as I remembered the fundraiser, I mentioned all our wonderful friends - who not only made the evening a huge success... raising more than enough money to send five children to camp!...but who continue to love us, encourage us and support us in ways that leave us not knowing what to say. We have been truly blessed!

This poem is for all of those who have helped us walk through the valleys.....we love each of you!

Thank you for standing by me
and lending an ear.
For helping me out by just being near.
Thank you for cheering me on
or saying a prayer.
For holding me up and showing you care.
Thank you for making me laugh
and giving me hope.
For showing support and helping me cope.
Thank for all that you've done
and all that you'll do.
I am so very fortunate to have someone like you.

  2. love that poem...
    I may have to pass it on too :)
    Thanks for your sweet words to me today.
    I will be praying for you too as you begin this journey. It is so hard for a mom when we cannot "fix" it for them anymore.
    But so thankful for the men that they become.
    Sweet Blessings friend!
