New Emotions emerging everyday!

Luke has been doing great lately, despite the few rough nights he's had, which are probably rougher on Mom and Dad than on him. He has been so much more limber lately, his OT is going to have his current wrist orthodics fixed so that it gives him more of stretch. We've also been talking about doing knee orthodics once again, I'm not sure where that one will end up though.

Something really exciting happened yesterday during his OT sessions. His OT was letting him play with hitting a switch pad to make cars go around a car track. All Luke has to do is barely touch the pad and it will go. Needless to say Luke was touching it and then letting it go, sometimes on command and then he began to get loud, Eric his OT said that he thought Luke was frustrated because his hands weren't working quick enough for him. This is the first time I've seen Luke get upset like this because he was unable to do something. On the one hand it's heartbreaking to see your child cry because they are unable to do what they want, on the other hand it is a huge breakthrough for Luke's emotions. God continues to move and we continue to wait for His completion in Luke's healing process.

I've been thinking a lot lately about all I have to be thankful for since Thanksgiving is this week. I'm am so blessed! God has given me such a wonderful husband who faithfully goes to work each day to provide for his family's needs, who also loves me so much and loves his children. For each of my children, when most people hear how many kids I have they usually say wow, it's good it's you and not me. I tell them I'm so blessed to have such wonderful kids and I really mean it, God has blessed me beyond my wildest expectations in my children. I'm so thankful to have such wonderful parents who faithfully pray for our family, they also deliver fresh milk to our home once a week and are always willing to lend a helping hand around the house. For my sisters, brother, sisters in law and brothers in law, though I don't get to see some of them often, I'm sure thankful that God has blessed me with such wonderful siblings. For amazing friends who encourage me in my walk with Christ. For a comfortable home, for heat and running water, which I always appreciate more after coming home from Mexico. The list could go on and on and on and on and on, you get the picture. What are you thankful for today?

Thank you faithful blog followers your prayers are wonderful to have,
Luke's Mommy Suzi
