Thank You

"Thank You" just doesn't seem to be enough.
Those two little words seem so little compared to all the prayers that have gone 
up for us, the sweet cards and notes that were sent, 
the food that was prepared, and the hugs that were given
in our time of grief...again.

If I tried to list everyone who has encouraged us in the last week,
and even in the last couple of years,
I would surely leave someone's name off, 
but please know that your kindness has not gone unnoticed.
We appreciate everything.
The prayers are felt, 
and we ask that you continue them.
Sometimes, it's hard for me to pray, 
so your prayers are what help me make it through. 
Tonight, a good friend asked me how I was doing,
and I told her I was doing okay, that I am tough.
She sweetly reminded me that I don't have to be tough all the time.

I guess I forget that sometimes, 
but I have learned that God truly doesn't give us more in this life
than we can handle.
Sometimes I think he has just a little more faith in me
than I have in myself.


  1. He does have great faith in you Salena, and so do I. Love you.

  2. I hate to point it out, but Mother Teresa said the same thing :)
