ust extra thankful for the dear people in my life . . . to see the way God has interwoven our lives …. some dear friends since childhood, I’ve stayed in touch with and current ones God has put into my life who have been special encouragements along the way. I am blessed with an amazing sister-in-law who has faced her own major health trials and pastors who don’t “just” pray but empathize & care . . . and my husband who was also protective in a specific situation not wanting more pains to come into our lives, yet so willing to move forward, even if it meant more pain, and then, caring when it did/does hurt. Yes, this is vague– God knows, and those special people in our lives know, and I just am very thankful how Jesus is shown in so many of you.
