So right after I wrote the last blog I felt I needed to do a "thankful" blog. We have received many blessings throughout this trial. Many that are too personal to share and many that are obvious. I have met countless numbers of people who have touched our lives and I have met a few people who are now counted as lifetime friends. It is amazing how many good people are out there. It is hard sometimes, especially when watching the news, to understand that good people still exist. I am here to testify that they do, indeed, exist, and that a good number of them have blessed my life personally. Friends, family, strangers, acquaintances, nurses, doctors, techs, etc, etc, have come to our aid. Food, gifts, money, love, conversation, company, housework, prayers, fasting and countless other acts of kindness have helped our family through these last three months. It makes me sick to think of the 9 more we have to go but it IS possible with all of you wonderful people. My spirits may be low and my mind exhausted but I can rest easy knowing that I am being taken care of. I love you all and am so thankful to all of you individually for restoring my faith in mankind.
Nate has a good friend in Idaho who does these funny, and clever "freestyle fridays" on Facebook. He starts a rap going on a certain subject and others follow suit. He has gotten pretty popular and now does videos of his lyrics and he did one for Spence. I hope you all enjoy! Thanks Jacobs!
