I have been thinking all morning about posting. I wanted to be a little more creative but if you know me I just say it how it is and I have a hard time fluffing it up. So anyway I wanted to write or list all the things I am thankful for. I run into a problem there is so many things I wanted to focus on something and couldn't come up with exactly what to focus on because I am so thankful this year. So bear with me it my get boring for all of you but it is really good for me to see all the things I am thankful for written down.

First and for most I am so thankful for my Heavenly Father who is all knowing and loving. I am thankful for the knowledge that he is a loving Heavenly Father and I am his child that is comforting. I am also extremely thankful for my Savior and brother Jesus who suffered and died for me. I know that he has suffered all pains even mine and my cancer that is also very comforting to me. I am also thankful that H.F. listen and answer my prayers.

I am thankful for my very loving and affectionate husband. Who was able to take me the temple for time and all of eternity wow that is cool ha. Who has been such a comfort to have him with me during all of my Doctor appointment and chemo appointments. I didn't realize how much it meant to me until he wasn't able to come to one of my appointments and then I know who much I really rely on him. He has been such a big help with the kids, keeping the house clean and shopping, disiplining the kids (instead of participating). I can say it is sexy when my husband can clean the house.

I am thankful for my children. Each one of them! I am thankful for Cole and his obedience and his loving nature. I am thankful for Kamden and her mothering nature, her mindfulness of everything going on around her and her love for her brothers. I am thankful for Carter and his sweet spirit and his kindness and willingness to share. Each one of them have been so helpful to me and obedient during this time.

I am so thankful for Dr. Kris for taking care of my whole body. I am thankful for Dr. Evans who is so up beat and kind for her beautiful work. I am thankful for Dr. Rado who is so good at what he does and makes my believe in everything he does for me.

I am thankful for my mom, dad and sisters who listen to me and support me and our family in all of our decisions. I am thankful for all the help they give me with watching the kids and helping drive the kids around.

I am thankful to my in-laws for all of their help with the kids, hair and fund raising.

I am thankful to all the members of Pasco 6th ward and all others who participate in the fast that I know has blessed me and my family.

I am thankful to all who have worked so hard in all the fundraising to help us with our financial situation. I can't tell you how blessed I and my family feel for the out pouring of love.

I am thankful to all who have so unselfishly donated money to the cancer fund.

I am thankful for all the friends that I have been able to get back in touch with through this.

I am thankful to those friends who have brought food, helped babysit, gone grocery shopping and taking me to appointment or just have come to visit me and lifted my spirits.

I am thankful for our home that keeps us warm and safe during these cold months.

Oh, I am so thankful for my three chemo nurses at Kadlec who lift my spirits, answer my million question and are just so kind.

I am thankful for the chemo that is affective with the cancer. I am thankful for all the support medicine. I am thankful for the natural medicine that helps my whole body.

I am thankful for my CANCER, yes I really can say that. Look at all the many things I have to be thankful for and everyday I am given so many blessing and lessons learned that have come from the cancer. I am able to most days sit down and reflect on all the blessing that have come from this disease during the day.

I know their are many more small things every day I am thankful for like the policeman that didn't give me a ticket a couple of weeks ago. But, I don't have that much time to list all of the things just some of the bigger things.

I hope you were able to bear with me and through all my thankfulness. I know that everyone has lots of things to be thankful for. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm sure you've seen by the numbers of people stepping forward to help and/or just getting in touch with you, that we/they are inspired by your love of family, your courage and your spirit/faith.

Your blogs always touch my heart and soul. So today I am thankful for you - and the lessons you've taught me as of late.
