I was up early on Friday morning to send my husband off to work and my adult daughters and their families down the mountain to their homes, after we had all feasted on the massive Thanksgiving spread. I had plans to sit in the chair next to the window while I read my Bible and did some giving thanks to my God. BUT, my phone was ringing and I got that all to familiar dread in the pit of my stomach. My, nephew was calling I just knew it was him telling me my sister or other nephew (that is waiting for a heart) had died or was close to death. It was not them it was my brother in law the healthy one of the family. He suffered from a massive heart attack and even though my nephew worked on him for what seemed like an eternity, probably 10 minutes, the 30 minutes the paramedics spent working on him plus the 30 minutes the doctor tried to save him it was to no avail. He did not pull through. He was a donor and so far he has helped any where from 60-80 people. So amazing to me!
My sister was telling me that just 3 days prior to his passing she told him "thank you" for loving her through all her illnesses and problems. I thought about that and was wondering who I need to thank for all they are and do in my life. I have started a list and my goal is to tell some one every week what they mean to me and for being a treasure in my life.
So today I want to tell all my spark friends thank you for all the encouragement and love you freely give.
God Bless you!!!! And thank you all for your support, love and encouragement.
