I love witnessing Hope break out of her shyness and play with her friends. My dear coworker, Misty lives down the street from the pumpkin patch and she had all the preschoolers to her beautiful home for snacks and play after pumpkin picking. It was a fun (but chilly) day with our preschool friends.
The closer we get to November 17th the more overwhelmed I am in thanksgiving to God. He is getting us through these fall chlly days that are so reminiscent of last fall and the trauma of hearing "stage four cancer." Our God is ever-present and we trust him with our future. He has proven to be so fatihful to us during the dark days and I feel sure He was smiling as David ran through the pumpkin patch today as a carefree eight-year old running to keep up with his buddy and big brother. To God be the glory today and always.
