Getting caught up

Peyton and I got to come home today, and it's a wonderful thing to be a family together again. Her fevers turned out to just be random fevers with no infection or bacterial cause. She did have some issues with her port as we were trying to go home, there was a mild blockage that required medication to fix, but they did get it fixed and Team Mayhew will attack the turkey tomorrow as a whole unit! Hurray!

One of the things I meant to do was post some pictures from our hockey game night with the Lightning and here they are. Now, truth be known, we're not big hockey watchers so I don't have a clue which players are which, but they were all terribly friendly and gracious. We were thankful for the opportunity to meet them and for the kids to be wowed by the game and players.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we do have so many things to be thankful for. In light of a year that has been one struggle after another, we have found ourselves to be a stronger family, closer than ever and more appreciative of every blessing we're given. I have an amazing amount of love for our friends who've supported and encouraged us each day and given us their strength to rely on. God has brought fantastic people into our lives through our troubles and we are continually thankful for that. We are blessed to have a chance to minister to the new families that are going through the same thing we are, to return that love and encouragement to others.

Please keep Weston and Antonio and their families in your prayers this Thanksgiving as they are still at the hospital unable to leave. I am praying that they are able to find peace in their hearts to deal with the shock and pain of their very recent diagnosis and the upcoming trials they'll have to go through. I truly believe that Peyton's fever this week was just a way to get us into the hospital so we could meet these families and reach out to them and lift them up with prayer and understanding.

Also keep the Campbell family in your prayers as they go through this first holiday without Karen at their sides. Pray that they are able to find the reasons to be thankful regardless of the overwhelming pain I know they are feeling at her loss. I pray that Mark and Nick are able to hold each other close and be reminded of what a joy Karen was and that she would want them to find peace in her passing and turn to the Lord in their grief.

f.r.o.G….fully relying on God

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Psalm 107:1
