I know I have posted before about thankfulness, however, there are a few reasons to write on this topic. First off, writing these blogs is just one way that I can cope with all the incredible emotions that cancer offers. That being said, why not reflect on the positives of my cancer? Also, seeing that Thanksgiving is next weekend, how could I not reflect on thankfulness?
First of all, I am thankful for my primary support group- my family. Through these past seven months of treatment, my family has carried me through both painful treatments and dark days. Without these anchors in my life, I know that I would be tossed, battered, and beaten without any sense of direction or hope. I would also like to express thanks to my incredible Aunt Jenny! Yet again she was able to help spread our story by lining up an interview with the Janesville Gazette. (click HERE for link) Through the past seven months, I have seen our family draw closer together while facing most people's greatest fear.

Finally, I am incredibly thankful for all of you! I know this may seem a bit "general", but your constant prayers, love, and support has continually upheld my family and I through this. Wether it be our neighbors love-infused meals or your daily prayers, I could not be more thankful for all that you have done! I am truly blessed to have such an amazing crew! :)
In conclusion, this Thanksgiving I have learned that though life may be far from what I want- I can still thank God for all that He has given. Cancer has shed light on the fact that what means the most to me is not in material objects- but in my family and friends!
