Look at that...
My 100th post lands on Thanksgiving
will wonders never cease...
There are angels walking around here on earth masquerading as people and your mama is one of them.

Is this heaven?
No, it's Iowa.
Field of Dreams
This year has been full of miracles. And angels. And because I am human, and susceptible, despite the best intentions to count my blessings, it took the road to hell for me to really see. And really be thankful.
The Road to Hell opened my eyes.
And now I see angels on earth.
Anouk and Mike gave us shelter in the storm.
Ronald Podell & Carl Chu saved my husband's life
Lynne and Jane said Michelle, you take care of yourself and the children
John came so I could feel safe
Dave Fenner stopped the ride so I could get off, and when I got back on he called me George Bailey.
Adrienne and Halona were always just a phone call away.
Gale. Who always and forever has been my steadfast best friend.
Amy and her family. Strong, brave Amy. Anyone else would have high-tailed it outta here. But she stayed and took care of my babies while I took care of other people's babies.
JORDANA, my partner in crime, who made me LAUGH. And the laughter healed my heart.
I've been visited by angels and archangels and all the company of heaven in the bloggosphere and
The Church of the Batshit Crazy.
You ladies heard my voice and answered back and are the saviors of my sanity.
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, I will be full of thanks for YOU, the angels in my life masquerading as people.
OK. So now I'm bawling. And Ty's reading over my shoulder and he's bawling too. I says to me with awe and wonder those people did all that for US. And I say they sure did honey. They saved our FAMILY.
