I am so thankful to so many of you, and even though I HOPE I’ve already said thank you for everything, I want to reiterate. Thank you to:
-Tina, for everything – you’re the best helpmate and nurse ever!
-Carrie & Nat, for everything else – food, flowers, constant checks, laughs, love
-Mom & Dad for meeting, falling in love, getting married and having me so I could have such a beautiful life.
-My kids for loving me so much it hurts.
-Loren for being born (just thinking about you or looking at a photo brightens my spirit!)
-Pastors Linda and Matt for coming to the hospital to pray for me and delivering hot soup the next day! Oh, and for the great podcast today!
-My boss, Joe Mendez, for “bonusing” me the sick time I needed for the surgery.
-My boss’ wife, Renée Mendez, for getting us signed up for Fit Eats – I’ve been wanting to try it!
-Everyone else at work for your support, and for the beautiful flowers from my Goodwill family!
-Robin & Penny for organizing the Meal Train and for delicious food.
-Daylyn & Anthony for being such great neighbors and bringing food.
-Traci & Mark for also being good neighbors and bringing me a bag of recovery (wearing the socks, chapstick, and headband right now!).
-Rose Lester, Denise Garland & Mike Cardwell, Liam Musante and Mama Ladd’s friend Barbara for all the beautiful flowers that now adorn (and fragrance) our home
-Cindy Love for the drain pouch & workbook.
-Lori Moss for the zucchini and spiraler – good one!
-Traci Pilgrim & Tina Macuha for sharing your personal stories with me and allowing me to be vulnerable with my fears, knowing you fully understand them.
-Chris Chapin, Lisa Ladd, Mama Ladd, and Bela Balazs for the delicious food (and I’ll be adding more to this list, I’m sure).
-Everyone who prayed/is praying for me, added me to prayer chains, and offered words of encouragement – it has made all of the difference!
I realize that, as soon as I post this, it will be obsolete because the blessings keep coming by the hour, but I’m calling this Thank You #1 so I leave room for continued blessings – thank you everyone!
