So Grateful...

I had to take a minute and express my gratitude for my Savior. I know he sure has been extra close to me lately. I went to my cute nephew's baptism a week ago and he was given the gift of the Holy Ghost. Something I have had since I was 8, but realized then that it is something I don't ask for...ever...well, that night I went home and I prayed so hard...I prayed that I would have the Holy Ghost with me and asked for comfort and peace regarding my sweet Sadie..instantly I felt better. I went about 5 days barely eating..not even wanting to leave the house. Feeling guilty leaving Sadie's side..I just instantly felt better and to this day I still feel comforted and I am so grateful for that. We put Sadie on some cancer meds that help kill the blood supply to the tumor in hopes that it will buy her some time and the vet also put her on an anti-inflammatory in addition to the pain pills and it has made a HUGE difference. She seems her normal self besides the limp. I am just so blessed that we have this extra time with her and that she seems to be feeling good! One day at a time...and things are good! I just hope it stays this way for awhile. A long while:) Thinking is too short not too..I am so grateful for the Plan of Salvation and the opportunity we will have to be with our cute pets in the next life if we live righteously...I could go on all night.

Today on my way to work I had just picked up a Birthday cake and was following a guy on a motorcycle that was making a left hand turn and lost control on some loose gravel. He was in shorts and a t-shirt and no helmet and had just come from giving blood. Here is the shocker, I was right behind him so I ran to him to see what I could do and nobody even stopped! His poor arm got eaten by the road and I couldn't tell if he hit his head..he had just given blood so I think he was light headed too...he was embarrassed and I just felt so helpless. I so don't like being the 1st responder on a wreck! That is 2 in 2 months. I am ready to be done with that. Just grateful I did stop. Such a nice guy!

I am off to cut a massive pile of coupons that have been awaiting me for quite some time now. I hope this finds everyone well. Thanks for all of the prayers. I know they have been a huge help. It's times when it seems like the world is coming to an end, the friends you think you are closest too..seem to be more distant than ever and the people you aren't as close to...come and wrap their arms around you..I am so grateful to those that have gone out on a limb to comfort me through this!

I am so sorry Lisa! I know this is so extremely hard for you! I am glad you had an answer to your prayer with the Holy Ghost. Things get so hard and stressful! I think of you, Luke and Gracie all the time and wish I could help in someway! Know that I think of you and offer prayers on behalf of you and your cute family and those cute dogs of yours! Keep it up! And I am glad you stopped for that poor guy! Cant believe no one else did!
