Attitude of Gratitude

We had a very meaningful sermon by Mark today titled, An Attitude of Gratitude. He referred to Luke 17:15 - "One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice." We are SO very thankful and praise God for His grace. Dawn asked me yesterday why I thought that Molly had to suffer through all this. All I can say is that Molly has been inspirational with her strength and positive attitude. I'm sure that she has come into contact with many people and her light has shone brightly. She didn't dwell on the negative or blame anybody for it. She only worried and cried over her children. Her last roommate was exactly the opposite.

While spending all that time in the recovery room she made jokes with doctors and nurses. I recently had a colonoscopy and was quite a baby about it - needless, to say, Molly was on my mind the entire time. How many tests she has endured, trips to the ER, a burst appendix because she is so used to abdominal pain, no veins for IVs, fatigue and many other painful complications from Crohn's disease.

Just want to share a photo from my last day at Molly's - and also a slideshow! Nic and Jason played their version of one-on-one tackle football. They play until one of them gets hurt so, it's fun until then! Funny, Nic looks like the tough one in this photo, doesn't he?

If you'd like to see more, see this slideshow.
