HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

I hope you are enjoying this day surrounded by loved ones, and wonderful food!  Honeychick quote 1

Today, I’m thankful for change!

Change is one of those things that’s just a part of life. Whether we like it or not, change inevitably happens. What I’ve noticed about change, even the difficult type, is that God uses it to change me for the better.

The change I experienced in Germany was great, and I’m extra thankful for my good health this year!

On another note, we have a big change happening on the homestead this weekend.

My sister-in-law, along with her geckos, and cat, are moving in with us. Yay, more animals on the homestead!

The kitty cat will be moving into the garage because my husband is allergic, and our dogs weren’t too excited about a cat moving in 🙂

I’m thankful God has provided us a home with enough space that allows us to easily welcome her.

We look forward to providing her with a comfortable place that she can call “home” while she continues to overcome her late stage Lyme disease. Yes, my sister-in-law also has Lyme 😦

Because of how expensive treatment is, she needed to reduce her monthly expenses. We decided the easiest way to help was to eliminate her largest expense, rent.

The last thing anyone overcoming a serious health issue needs is financial stress, and it’s unfortunate many people have to bear that burden while trying to regain their health. We didn’t want financial strain to keep her from getting treatment, or getting better.

The quote I included in this post, is written on the chalkboard in my kitchen. It’s been a reminder to me that chances, and change are all a part of life.

I hope my sister-in-law can remember this as she embarks on this next chapter in her life. I know that things are only going to get better for her!


Share with me what you’re thankful for on this Thanksgiving!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Jen and thank you for this lovely post! I have goosebumps right now. The amount of positive change that has occurred in my life since beginning the Lyme journey has been incredible. It has been quite uncomfortable at times but in the end, positive. So glad you are feeling good and your sister-in-law is so blessed to have you and your husband to help her out. Have a wonderful day and thanks again!

  2. Obviously I’m thankful for everything you guys do for me. Mainly this. There is not enough Halmark cards in the world or any words in the dictionary to describe how greatful I feel toward this amazing guesture you and Trev have given me. I am so very lucky to be loved by you guys. I live you!

  3. What a lovely post!! So proud to say you are my daughter and Trevor my son in law. You both are very special people. xoxo

  4. I enjoy your newsletter very much especially your lyme reports, I also went to Frankfurt for stem cell therapy and I have follow-up visits here in Beverly Hills. I would love to discuss some symptoms in more details. Please let me know how we can do this. Also love your steel oats from the slow cooker, very yummy indeed!
