Day 7 gratitude challenge

 Gratitude challenge issued by President Nelson


They say it takes a village to raise a child. If so, I wonder how many villages are needed to raise an autistic child. 

There are teachers, aides, respite workers, family, friends, neighbors and total strangers.

I am so grateful for all the people who reach out in love and kindness to help us keep our David happy and safe. 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We love you.

Day 5 gratitude challenge

Gratitude challenge issued by President Nelson


I am thankful for my parents. They are the salt of the earthEverything I am, I owe to them, for their teachings, faith, example and sacrifice.

 We've only been together 4 times in the past 22 years. But there is no number of miles or oceans that can separate me from the sustaining power of their faith and love.

Day 3 gratitude challenge

 Gratitude challenge issued by President Nelson


I am thankful for this guy. My forever companion.

We've been a team for almost 20 years. Together we've travelled some hard roads, and together we've become stronger, wiser and more loving. 
What I value most about Rob is his nurturing personality. He loves to take care of plants, animals and people-and our house is filled with all three. 
I couldn't ask for a better father for my children. Family is always his first priority.

Day 2 gratitude challenge

 Gratitude challenge issued by President Nelson


I am thankful for sunshine. Clear blue skies and sunny rays make me happy. I love the warm, tingly feeling of the sun on my skin as the heavens embrace my being. 

What a cold, dark place our world would be without the bright, warm light of sunshine.

Day 1 gratitude challenge

Gratitude challenge issued by President Nelson 


 I am grateful for the miracle of my son's healing. When I faced the darkest hour of my life, God answered my prayers. Against all medical odds my baby's life was spared. Today he is a strong, energetic 16-year-old; and a constant reminder of God's ability to answer pray and command healing.

My God is a God of miracles.

 "What once seemed such a curse has become a blessing. All the agony that threatened to destroy my life now seems like the fertile ground for greater trust, stronger hope and deeper love.

    In our own woundedness we become a source of life to others."

(Henri Nouwen)
