Christmas in Utah

I was informed that my work will be closing down for the holidays (Dec. 24th - Jan. 4th). I decided that we would all go up and spend Christmas in Utah. It's been 14 years since I've spent Christmas with my family. I told my mom and dad and they're both very excited. As my dad battles his illness, we will all be together for love, support and the joy of spending time together as a family.

This will be the best Christmas ever...I'm already starting the countdown, I haven't had a vacation in 3 years because as an independent contractor, I don't get paid when I'm off. We received a recent gift from an AMAZING family that will make this trip financially possible. I will tell you all about it in a future post. It brings me to tears every time I talk about the love and kindness that people have shown our family!

Please continue to pray for my dad, Dave, for a miracle healing. Thank you all so much for your care and concern.

"And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."
Matthew 21:22
