Prayers needed for our family...

This has been an emotional Thanksgiving. I normally don't share personal family struggles, but my mother in law had a massive stroke this morning which has left her with paralysis on her right side and she is currently unresponsive. We traveled across the state yesterday to visit her at her nursing home and joked about her day pass for our Thanksgiving dinner celebration. It feels like a blessing that we were able to share a few hours of happy conversation before everything would change.

Please remember my father in law and mother in law in your prayers. It has been a difficult three years and I'm praying for Gods will and for his strength for them both. It's moments like this, that I am reminded that family & friends are the greatest blessing.

XOXO
