Yes folks I know it is way too early for Thanksgiving decorations. My mom would kill me, she hates when the stores decorate for Thanksgiving in September,Christmas in October,Easter in February but since she does not own a computer this will be a secret kept from her LOL! I was really looking for an autumn background and this one popped up. I did not see the Happy Thanksgiving until I put it up on the blog but I decided it was meant to be... and it is right because I should be giving thanks whether it is September, November, February or June! Lily had eye surgery this week. I was a mess! She went into the OR like a champ but she was WILD coming out of the anesthesia. Kicking, screaming, punching. My mind went right to Cali who underwent her cleft lip surgery in China. Did she have some one to comfort her, some one to monitor her pain, to hold her if she was screaming? I do not know... then I thought of all the other orphans with medical needs. It makes me so sad. There are great organizations-Love without Boundaries,Half the Sky Foundation, Maria's Big House of Hope (founded by Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman in honor of their Maria Sue) that do care for those most in need. It is my dream one day to be able to help these children through one of these groups. I am so thankful to them and the sacrifices that they make everyday. Really incredible people. So that is what I am thankful for today, in September.
