A Thanksgiving To Remember

My daughter and her family went to Texas to spend the holiday with family there. Poor Blake, my only grandson who was also born on my birthday, had to be taken to the emergency room late last night after a trampoline accident resulted in a fractured arm. Although I am sure it was scary and painful, he was very brave and did not whimper. I think Mama, Daddy, and Sissy were more emotional that Blake. The staff at the hospital fixed him up in a temporary cast until  he can be seen by an orthopedic doctor back here. He is finding it very difficult to do things without a right arm and he is wondering how he will be able to write when he gets back to school next week. He is thinking a touchscreen laptop would be appropriate. We are thankful it was only a broken arm.

We had a lovely "too much food" dinner with hubby's family. As a friend said today, I hope you were all warm enough, full enough, and loved enough.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about Blake's accident. God bless him.

  2. That's a lovely wish from your friend - very sweet!
    I'm so sorry to read about your grandson's broken arm. Thank heavens that it was an arm, as trampoline accidents can be quite serious. I hope he gets lots of attention and a bright and colourful cast!

  3. Poor Blake! But, otherwise you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's always nice to be full enough and loved enough and well, just to have enough blessings, right!?
