The biblical phrase “sacrifice of thanksgiving” was a puzzle to me…
And then I realized that gratitude is acknowledging that someone did something for you that you could not do yourself.
Gratitude expresses our vulnerability and our dependence on others.

Everything we do, every accomplishment we have, every mile stone we pass has come in part because of the efforts of others. A Chinese proverb says that those who drink the water must remember those who dug the well.

If we can remember that we can be grateful…

I was told the best way to overcome writers block is to write through it… So this begins my series of “thanksgiving”!

To start my series here are a few people I am grateful for today…

  • I am grateful for - Dr. McMullan; Mason’s Surgeon! Simply put I am grateful he chose the profession he did and I am grateful for his ability to fix small hearts!!!!
  • I am grateful for my Horsey Grandpa (Yes I am a grown women and I still refer to him as this)… He taught me to be comfortable in my skin without the pressure of being “fake” and lastly he taught me how to pick myself up when I fell. All lessons learned when I was young
  • I am grateful that I am Jackie Burts Granddaughter! When it came to this blog she was my biggest fan – which makes it ironic that after she passed away I lost my desire to write here, that would have not made her happy. Words can not even describe how much I miss her.

I chose these three people to write about today – because each of them has given me gifts that I could not give myself.
Dr. McMullan saved my son’s life and my Grandparents helped shaped who I am today.

Be BLESSED - Kelsey

Loaded Diaper?!?!?

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
