A Quick Thanks

I have way too many things I want to write about and need to process, so rather than tackle what would surely be a several hour writing session and the longest blog post ever, I am going to say thanks to the many people who continue to bless us.

Today I ran several errands in an effort to get ready for a trip to the beach, and do you know how much money it cost me? Nothing, thanks to you guys. I went to Barnes and Noble to get three books for our time away -- thanks, Hambricks, for the gift card! Then I went to Toys R Us to get some things to occupy the boys while on the road -- thanks, Tomberlins and Tappans, for the gift cards! And on my way home, I stopped at Chick-Fil-A for a wrap for lunch -- thanks to the many people who have given us CFA gift cards. I think we can eat there every week for many months and still have money to spare. :) And do you know how much money the beach trip is going to cost? Nothing, again thanks to you guys. One of Bryan's co-workers offered us their place for free (as did two other families), and quite a few of you have given us gas cards that will surely cover the trip there and back. So our family is going to get some much needed time together and at the beach for virtually nothing. THANK YOU to our AMAZING friends who continue to serve and love us in this time. I am humbled day after day at your great compassion and kindness. We are blessed by you. We thank God for you, and we love you very much.


  1. I hope you guys have a GREAT time and that the rain doesn't follow you. Just sunshine and love.

  2. May God continue to pour out His blessings on you as you rest up in Destin.
    And I echo your thank you's to all the people who helped you, and thus helped me, in my 7 weeks of caring for Caleb and Joel. THANK YOU, EVERYONE for the yummy meals, the hugs, the phone call messages of concern, the grass mowing, the cleaning service, the gift cards to Kathryn and Bryan, and most of all the prayers. May God heal all of our hearts. Love from Gab'm
    PS. I am really missing those boys today....

  3. praying for all of you as are away together. that you will have moments of pure joy with your boys, with each other & with our Lord.
