*Attitude of Gratitude - Day Four...aka Surgery Day* :):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....


Today I am grateful for ... Brookie's Surgeon, Dr. Hansen (or as Brookie says it... Dr. HANDSOME! lol!)... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) I am grateful to this man everyday for what he has done for Brookie and countless other children... but I am especially grateful for him today, as he is performing Brookie's 13th laser surgery today for her Port Wine stains she was born with....so, please keep Brookie in prayer today! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
This is the party that Dr. Hansen throws for his laser kids every year (this was the event from a year and a half ago!)...he is the gentleman in the back next to Brian (Brian is in the blue) ...(Brookie is the little one in the stroller in the front...MY she has grown in a year and a half, hasn't she???? *sigh*) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And today Tina's son is having surgery too for his adenoids taken out and tubes put in his ears...please keep him in prayer too! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I also wanted to share some lo's today! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Today is Sketchy Thursday day...and OHHHHHHHHHHH DO I LOVE this SKETCH...and OHHHHHHHHHHHH DO I love love love love love love love the lo I created for it!! *LOVE* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And today is also my day to post over on ScrapbookCircle.com's Blog! :):):):):):):):):) This is the lo I am showing today and I give some tips on how I made my flowers! :):):):):) Go on over to take a look see! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) (AND YES! That is a LITTLE Julie on there!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
