Who gives a dime?
I (we) want to be most grateful, respectful, indebted and thankful as I write this post. I may have overdone it yesterday as today I feel like I can't move my upper body, so I hope I make sense as I post.
I just wanted to do a blog post about all of you and your generosity.
Our entire family (Anderson and Atwood included) are so grateful for everything that has been done for us. We are so thankful for every donation right down to the last penny that has been given on our behalf. And it's not only about the money. We know that there have been countless hours of service, prayer, messages of encouragement and thoughts of love that cannot even begin to be quantified and we cannot express how completely appreciative we are.
The out pouring of love to our family has been amazing and felt so strongly through this entire process. I have said many times, "We couldn't do this without the army that is behind us." I mean that from the bottom of my heart and I know Ken does too.
You have taught us true charity and love. You have taught our children to always be mindful of the needs of others. Even amidst the challenges our family is facing, our children find time to pray for you and yours (I am not even making that up, K says the sweetest little prayers that you may have every needful thing, that you will feel of the Savior's love and peace for you, that your hearts will be light, that you will be happy and healthy and safe). It is a testament to me of an amazing Father in Heaven and His plan for each and every one of us. I love how He can teach us always, in every situation.
