Thankful on Thursday


Thankful for this little guy taking residence in my belly and giving me kicks to tell me he's growing like a weed.
Thankful & Excited.

And I am thankful for this video.
A must watch.

My brother's speech to his graduating respiratory class. That was given just 1 week after saying goodbye to Nolan and he even mentions our little fighter in it.
(wipes tears from face)
He was so wise for his young age. How he accomplished so much in so little time.

Sitting here watching him I have chills and a huge grin on my face at his wise and witty words. God, I can't believe he's gone. He is so alive and vibrant in this video. I'm SO glad you were able to track it down...I'm sure you all cherish it immeasurably.
