Giving Thanks

... the day after.

Yesterday found the Mac family at home celebrating many blessing.  Food, warmth of home, family, friends. We had a bounty of goodness served up at the table.  Reflecting at prayer time .. each person gave a short offering of thanks for what they were most grateful for.  I had to give a BIG shout of thanks for the progress Nathan has made:  He is developing the skills to EAT in the dining room at the table with the whole noisy lot of what is his family.  Just a few weeks ago, this was only a dream. Now, he regularly eats with us.  I'm praising the Lord and saying AMEN!  Thanking the dedicated work his therapist is doing ... we call here the miracle worker!!  Next on the list of miracles:  Haircuts, baths, and trimming toe nails.  Hey, with God in control, we have success!

Dear God,
Thank for the progress of Nathan and the endurance , love and care of the whole family.
Plus the coach.
Thine is the glory for ever and ever.
Please do keep the wonders coming for the common good.
Eating out in t-shirt would be a miracle in Norway.
We are 9 below zero..in Celsius degrees.
That is freezing.

Thats great that Nathan is doing so well! I'm glad for you. How nice that you are doing some sewing, I think about it from time to time but don't get anything started. And, I could really use some skirts. I'm getting lazy with hubby retired....he likes to get out and I always opt to go too. So, not much gets done here...I love him being home all the time though...big time =)
