Count Your Blessings Monday

This weekend has been a difficult one. A dear friend of mine Tina is staying with me till she and her daughter, Chelsea, can find a place. Her daughters best friend, Allison Guinter, went onto heaven Friday afternoon from leukemia. We have been calling all weekend to places to try to put a fundraiser together. I have got some awesome responses so far. Will keep you all updated. Keep an eye on http://www.wishuponahero.com/ they are going to be doing a feature on Allison the front page of their site which will be going national. They then will contact our newspaper, radio and tv stations. She was only 12 when her Lord called her home. She has been suffering since May of this year with it. So hard to be a 12 year old little girl and so sick. She was so upset by all of it. Couldn't go swimming, skating, or hanging out with her friends this summer.

So I will be counting our blessings of our good health. My mom's check-ups have been unremarkable. The kids (knock on wood) haven't had any colds yet this school year.

I am asking for prayers though for the family of Allison. She was so young and so innocent. Prayers for the money they need to pay all the impending bills. Including medical, travel, and funeral costs. They had life insurance on Alli but the minute the insurance company found out about her illness they dropped her. :( What a sad, sad country we live in.

Lots to be thankful for. We often take many of those things for granted.

So sorry for the loss. It's so hard to understand the Lord's plan sometimes. Keep your chin up. Prayers for comfort in hard times are on the way.

I will pray for this family, how difficult to lose a precious child but so comforting to know she's in the arms of Jesus.

I saw you on the Titus2 blogroll (I'm asking to be added, but can't get my button to add to my blog). Anyway, I take care of my mom, too, she lives with us, so thought I'd pop in and say "hi!"

Sociable
