Today I am thankful for:
1...the way Brad has been feeling. He has had several better days. We talked tonight about how he seemed to just be doing a little better...we are so glad. He went 6 hours on Sunday without being on oxygen....probably the longest period without it for the past 2 weeks. He has continued to do better yesterday and today.

2...all the time with family that we have had recently. We have been so blessed to have frequent and long visits from all our extended family....it is really nice.

3....even though Brad isn't feeling perfect...he is still so willing to help me. He sacrificed 9 hours of his time today organizing reciepts/bills/info to make spreadsheets for our taxes. It is such a daunting task....I can't express how grateful I am to have his help with this dreaded job.

4...our peacful nights. The last 2 nights...both of the kids slept through the night and didn't wake up until almost 7am (K has been sleeping until almost 8)....it is SO wonderful.

5...the way that Zeke reminds me every day about how many times he will go to sleep before Santa comes. It is so cute!

6....the fact that we only hae to go to sleep 2 more time until Santa comes! I love Christmas!

I cannot explain how excited I am to hear that Brad is feeling better. I love to see the desires of our hearts so fervently expressed in prayer and then graciously granted by our loving God. And I am so grateful that your family is getting to celebrate Christmas together - ALL together! Keep feeling better, Brad! :)

I came across your blog a while ago and we think of your family often! We were reminded at mass yesterday that Christmas is a time for miracles. We pray that your family will be blessed with a miracle of your own. Have a Merry Christmas!
