Attitude of Gratitude--I'm grateful for good health

This is a blog post from my daughter. If you'd like to help, send me your email address ( and I'll pass along the address to you too. Merry Christmas.

From Leisy:

I couldn't think of a better way to reach more people to ask this favor. We have some friends here in Toledo whose eight year old son was diagnosed this week with an extremely rare form of cancer. The prognosis is not good and the family just wants to enjoy the last bit of time they have together. The little boy LOVES mail and Christmas. His grandmother is also a close friend and when I asked her what we could do- she said we could send he and his brother mail of any sort. I know he'd love to get mail from places besides Toledo so I thought I'd ask friends to send him some. Christmas cards or letters or anything would be wonderful. He loves spongebob, cooking, and all other normal eight year old stuff.

I don't want to post their names and addresses on my blog- so if you'd send me an e-mail (, or comment with your e-mail address, I can send you one with the information! Thanks so much!

Attitude of Gratitude Day ?

I'm behind---again. But today I am grateful for extended family. I feel truly blessed to belong to a loving and supportive family.

We (Phil, Daysa, Rosemary and I) went to Boise, Idaho for Thanksgiving. David and Michelle hosted the event (meaning they found the location and provided the turkey and potatoes--along with lots of other stuff).

It was fun to see Ben and Chantal and new baby Jet and Kristen and Matt and new baby Sawyer.

In addition Howells, Michelle's parents and sister and husband and son were there too.

Here we are lining up for the yummy yummy food. I especially liked the moist turkey, Linda's yams, and my stuffing (made with cornbread, pecans, apples, and craisins).

I'm pretty sure Bryson ate too much. I don't know how many desserts there were (pumpkin, pecan, chocolate, peanut butter, two kinds of apple, oatmeal cake, ice cream) but it was ALL gone when we left.

And lastly, I'm really grateful that I am part of a family of game players. Thanks everybody for humoring me (Matt, Bobby, Ben, Bridger, and Chele)!

I thought you might be interested...
