How Do You Thank Your Family And Friends For Their Support?

How Do You Thank Your Family And Friends For Their Support?

I sent all my friends who encouraged and support me with a beautiful thank you note in a Thanksgiving card. I also crocheted each one a winter scarf. I went to the post office two weeks ago to mail them to New Jersey, Maryland and Wisconsin the rest were of my friends are all locals. They were so appreciative and surprised. One of my dear friends passed away before I finished her scarf. I’m heartbroken. I decided to give it to her daughter. It was a purple scarf. Her daughter called to thank me and tell me she loved it and that purple is her favorite color. I was so happy, it was like a sign that her Mom told me to use purple yarn out of all the colors of yarn I had. My friend had be going to mass every day for me and praying novenas for me. Its so sad, she wasn’t sick. She developed a terrible headache and talking making no sense. She had a brain hemorrhage and was gone in 10 hours. I’m devastated. I’m the one with cancer and she was praying for and passed away in a flash. Her work on earth was done. Thank you all for listening. I’m so thankful for my family especially my husband, my better half. God bless you all. Wishing you all a Blessed Thanksgiving.

I've been a chef/baker my whole life,I ask what's their favorite meal or dessert and I make them and do the dishes too, we have always been close and have many friends so I make big batches of chili,chowder or beef stew and share

My family has been extremely supportive, I tell them I am so grateful and thankful for all they do for me, that makes my journey with MM more acceptable. Also I tell them I love them and could not be as positive as I am with out them.
I treasure each day I have and stay positive it really helps me.

I tell my children my brothers and sisters how much I love and appreciate everything that they do for me, because I know that it can get frustrating when you're helping to care for someone and I thank God for them.

I pray for each of them every day and always tell them so. The power of prayer for each one of us is so vital for whatever one is going thru. Our Heavenly Father will give us courage, his Divine Mercy and Hope. That is how i thank them.
