Home Again, Home Again, Jiggidy Jig

Back in Abilene. We arrived at 9pm last night. The splendor and magic was hard to say good bye too. When I get a bit of time I will be sure and download some pictures from the trip, but life is starting back with a roar, Jack has chemo this morning at 8:30. We are so grateful for our time away, the experience of living every moment to the fullest. I must have thanked God many times over this last week.
I am just as grateful for the daily life we live. Isn't it great to get away and see some place new, watch the joy on the faces of your children (and husband), and then be excited to get back to where you really live. We are blessed.
As we were flying home I started to think of how our lives have changed since Jack's diagnosis. And the first and only thoughts were of the goodness of this journey. We know who our friends are, we know how much our Christian brothers and sisters love us, we have been blessed by the new friends we have met at the hospitals and clinics. I never would have chosen or even dreamed of the path we are on, but God can bring good out of everything, his scripture says it, and I believe it.
Blessings,
Tammy

We're so glad you are back safe and sound! We loved the post card! You've seen God's blessings in this journey with Jack, but you've also shown us how such a journey can be traveled when your heart is open to God. Thank you for that.
