Catching up

I know it's been a while since my last blog.  I've been in sort of a "blah" state I guess you could say.  I went to a psychiatrist for the second time since being diagnosed.  She was amazed I hadn't seen anyone since January at MD Anderson.   I'm not that big of a talker, pretty sure therapy isn't my thing.  Other than that, things are basically the same for me for now.

Since my last posting, my friends threw a fundraiser at Taco Mac for me.  I'll add some pictures to the end of the event.   I just want to thank Taco Mac, Phillips Arena, Lisa Durham, Reggie Kimbell, Ron Terrell, Poppy Patterson, Amanda Davis, Jessica Jefferies,  Brad & Mandy Busch, and Summer & Wes Bayer for all helping make this fundraiser so successful.   We raised over $5000!   Oh, I almost forgot the kids.   Karley and Maddie were on top of things all night too.   They were awesome.  So many friends and family came out and donated so much money.  I can't thank every single person that came out individually, but know that I appreciate it more than you can imagine.  It has helped us so much.   You all make me feel truly blessed!

Also, thank you so much to the attorneys and staff at Arnall, Golden, and Gregory for raising so much money for me within a few short days.  God bless you guys!

Please keep your prayers coming for Reggie.  He began radiation last week and is doing well but I know he's tired.

Our new friend Marjorie came out to the fundraiser for a bit.  She's got a battle on her hands as well and I can only hope we can do some type of fundraiser for her too.   She's such a great person and very determined to beat this cancer!  We will continue to keep her in our prayers!

Also, please pray for Gretchen Mitchell, another fellow JHS classmate and friend that has her own battle ahead of her.   She needs our support and prayers right now!

Finally, please continue praying for Tim as he continues to improve.

Thank you all for all your support and prayers!  Remember, life is short and can change in an instant.  None of us expected these cards, but it's what we were dealt.   Keep that in mind when you're with your loved ones.  Hold them close, you never know....

Jeremiah 29:11-13

'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.   'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  'And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.'
