As the 2011 Thanksgiving approaches, we take the opportunity to voice our many "Thanks". I (Glenda) , have to begin with thanking God for my many blessings. I'm so thankful for my wonderful husband that has given me 36 wonderful years of marriage. We have shared so many amazing and fun adventures together. The laughter, the love, and yes even the heartaches and angry moments were growing times for us. Our two beautiful daughters, Stacy and Becky added to the wonderful moments. Of course our wonderful son-in-law Brian has always been there for us when we needed something and been the son we never had. There is nothing like being a Grandparent...and Colton and Emily have given us a joy that only a Grandparent can explain. We are both so thankful for our parents that continue to share their love and of course our sisters and brothers along with all the Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, nieces and nephews. There has never been...Johnny's family and my family, it has always been special to know the two families became one. We are also thankful for our wonderful Glenwood First Baptist Church Family that has been a blessing to us for 34 years. Friends...you may be last on the list here, but you are not last in the heart.
To "ALL" of the above mentioned....Thank you for Prayers , Love, Encouragement, Understanding, and Support. The fundraiser that was held for Johnny in March was more than we ever expected. It is so heart warming to see people wearing "Johnny's" shirt. Thank you for your giving and thank you for your understanding when we had to purchase a new vehicle, it is very difficult to spend anything beyond food and necessary items when so many have given to help us. I worry so much that some think we are just blowing the money and not appreciative of it. The car purchase was because Johnny could not get in and out of the Honda and now we can carry his electric wheel chair in the back of the Terrain, and he can still get out and see God's beautiful world.
THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR LOVE!
