fostering a grateful spirit

I am grateful for a death toll that decreased instead of increasing in tornado ravaged OK. I am thankful for the hundreds of people who dug through the rubble, after having just lost everything themselves, to rescue those trapped in schools and homes, and even to reunite people with their beloved pets. In the face of every tragedy there are people who are selfless and helpful. Thank you, Jesus, for those who remind us that all is not lost, even when much is.

I am SO grateful for good news about Harlow’s tumor after a scary few days. Fridays scan showed the tumor virtually unchanged. Monday the doctors said that they were afraid that the tumor was drug resistant. Yesterday they did a more accurate scan and found that the tumor has shrunk by about 35%. Yes!!

After a whirlwind (no pun intended) trip to Bradford to visit my sweet friend, I am especially grateful for safety, for laughter, for crazy answers to prayers, and that God shows up when it feels like He isn’t listening.
