Just. So. Thankful.

I was driving yesterday by myself, I had just left Mylee's school where I was helping her teacher with some things, Addy was with her great grandma and I was on my way to pick Ava up at preschool so we could go to lunch.....just the two of us. As I was driving, I just started thinking about how thankful I am for what may seem like such little things to some people. Last year at this time I was getting ready to start my first round of chemo since the recurrence (actually it was my 13th round if you count the previous chemo). I didn't realize how awful it was going to make me feel. I was sick for 9 days straight. I barely got out of bed, so helping out at Mylee's school or picking Ava up from school and certainly going to lunch was completely impossible! As I thought about what a great day I was having, I just couldn't help, but thank God for every single moment. I am truly blessed!

A couple of people have asked me if I've heard Martina McBride's new song, "I'm Gonna Love You Through It". It's a wonderful song. It totally reminds me of Josh and I and everything we have been through the past couple of years. It reminds me of how thankful I am for Josh and how he stood right by my side the entire time. When I was weak, he was strong. When I cried, he was there to dry my eyes. When I didn't want to go in for another round of chemo, he would hold my hand and make me go in. So thankful for him!

We are in a series at church about prayer and a couple of weeks ago it was about how God answers BIG prayers. I just have to say that I am SO thankful He answers big prayers!

  1. Wow, Taba, that is an awesome song and video. Thanks for sharing it :) I'm sure those of us on the outside have no idea all the ways Josh supported you, but we did see his love, support and encouragement! The great thing is ... I know if the roles were reversed and Josh was going through those things, you would be there for him in the very same way! Your love for one another is so evident, and it demonstrates to those around you what the vows "in sickness and in health" mean! I feel so privileged to know you all :)
