Seven Sunday Blessings

"Blessed" in Kanji [source]

With my limited posting this year, I've gotten away from my weekly Seven Sunday Blessings.  Now, more than ever, I feel the need to express my gratitude for all with which we are blessed...

This week, I am grateful:

1.  To Dr. J, our family GP, for being so thorough and sending Gary for the initial blood tests which started the ball rolling on his diagnosis.

2.  To Dr. N, the ER doctor, who acted so quickly and efficiently in getting Gary the help he needed.  Diagnosis, confirmation with colleague, paperwork completion for border crossing and transfer to Henry Ford Hospital and orchestration of medical staff to complete aforementioned transfer -> all in a matter of an hour.

3.  For my friend, Holly, without whom I would have been a complete wreck, worrying about what to do with the kids.  You were my lifeline in a storm and I'm forever grateful.

4.  For our neighbours, for their generous offers of help and support.  Your friendship is one of the reasons we love our home so much.

5.  For all of our family and friends who have sent messages, prayers, emails, cards, packages, wall posts and/or who have called.  The reactions to our news were overwhelming (in a great way) and to learn that we have such a wide network of support has brought tears to our eyes, more than once.  We love you all, too!!

6.  For my father-in-law, Ed, who packed a bag and drove down as soon as I got a hold of him.  He has helped in so many ways this week, from driving Aili to camp, to picking up groceries when needed.  Don't know what we would have done this week without your help - thank you!!

7.  To God for letting me keep my best friend for a while longer.  Thank you for the big wake-up call - we are listening and will make changes to live the life that You have intended for us.

What are YOU thankful for this week?


  1. OMG Sue,
    Keep you and your family in my thoughts. I am so glad that Gary is getting better.

  2. So pleased to see that Gary is getting better.....the changes you'll have to make will be totally worthwhile....we're getting there...slowly ...and so will you.
    Hugs xx
