I Am So Very Thankful…

March 28th, 2008

I am happy to report to you all that my niece is doing much better.  My brother and sister-in-law have been able to hold little Cheyenne finally.  They have let them do quite a bit for her over the last couple of days.  She seems to be progressing very nicely–and faster than the doctors even expected.

I want to thank all of you for dropping in on Cheyenne’s Website, and leaving messages for her and my brother and sister-in-law.  It means a lot to them to read the kind words you have been leaving for them.  I also want to thank all who have given money to help this family.  My brother has been out of work for most of the last 2 months taking care of his wife, and now his new daughter.  We have been able to raise a significant amount of money to help them with the added expenses that they have been facing, as well as to help pay some of their bills until they are able to go home.  Your generosity has been astounding!  Though most of us only know each other through our blogs, over the internet, we certainly are a close knit group.  Thank you so much for your generosity.  Some of you are facing your own difficulties, and yet you stopped by to offer encouragement, and donate of your own money.  I cannot say it enough:  Thank You!

As we are now quickly progressing into spring, I am hoping to get back to writing about the outdoors.  Fishing and turkey seasons should be heating up soon, so there will be plenty to write about.  I am looking forward to getting caught up in reading all the great blogs I have missed over the last several weeks.  I do miss keeping up, and commenting on your blogs.  I haven’t forgotten about all of you!
