Sunday we went to church for the first time in a month. Tom got up and shared his testimony of prayer, faith and his gratitude for all the love and service we have received this month. We are blessed beyond belief! We could not have done this on our own. We know that our Father in Heaven has sent his angles to help us through this trial. Those angles comes in the forms of friends bringing dinner, family stopping in, laundry being done, animals being fed, flowers being watered, the lawn being mowed, soda's brought over, treats, magazines to read and prayers - a lot of prayers from every religion!
Last week was hard but every day got better. I am not perfect and do lose my patience. Tom is so sweet and loving which makes my impatience seem even worse. Friday Pam and Chelsa called Tom's friend Deland and set up a whole day off for the girls and I. They had a different friend come stay with Tom every hour on the hour from 8am-5pm. I think it not only lifted Toms spirits but it also lifted mine. I was able to spend one on one time with Cassidy (Amberly was gone all day at birthday parties) and we got a lot done! Another tender mercy for our family. A huge thank you to Pam, Chelsa and Deland and to all the men who came over during their busy Saturday to hang with Tom!
