SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR!!!

HAPPY AND MOST BLESSED
THANKSGIVING!!!!


I guess it is completely fitting that the only holiday that Witt has never been in the hospital for is Thanksgiving! There has been no other life that God has used like Witt’s to make me bow in thankfulness. Maybe its because in the first few hours of Witt’s life we were told he would only be with us a few days. God not only taught me to be thankful for each day He has given me with Witt but to simply be thankful for each day. Somehow He even filled me with thankfulness at the end of some very very difficult days in the hospital. Someone might look at Witt’s life...what he has been through and even the day to day circumstances and think that surely there is anger, resentment and bitterness. I tell you the truth, Witt’s life exudes peace, joy and thankfulness all to the glory of our God!!!


Today, I shout to Lord, “Thank You! Thank You, Lord that You are Lord, that You are Sovereign and thank You for another day with Witt! Thank You for another day to share Witt, to share Witt’s story, to share Your story!!!”

Witt continues to grow and learn...he is learning to clap!!!

This is my favorite post you've ever written, Karen. I am typing through tears of joy and amazing gratitude! Carson always wants to see Witt's blog and tonight she asked me to "read it out aloud" to her...what a blessing for both of us!!!
I couldn't ask for a more blessed Thanksgiving!
